Catfish Gumbo
I REALLY like this recipe. I chose catfish nuggets because they are tons cheaper here. The only thing is, you have to go through them and check for bones. It's not a big deal because I figured that I would have to cut them anyway. The nuggets come cut in little squares and they are fresh.

Ann's Shrimp Etouffee
I really liked this but BECAREFUL! If you scale down the recipe, it does not change the amount of H20 listed in the method.I screwed up by adding too much H20 and had to let it cook way down. My dumb fault but it didn't dawn on me until I poured it in. Otherwise, it's really good!

Merry Cherry Bars
I made these for Xmas and I loved them. They were ugly but they tasted awesome. I think the fruit and chocolate thing deterred people from trying them but once they did they really liked them. If I make them again, I think I will try to conceal the m & m 's a little better.
