Sometimes I like this soup blended, as it is typically served. When I do it this way, I'll add some red lentils and maybe another small potato, since it thickens it up a little more. It's just fine unblended, too though, so either way... I also like to add some chicken sometimes to make it a little heartier. If you don't like the idea of the chicken, leave it out! Enjoy.


1/2 cup clarified butter
2 large cloves garlic, minced
1 large onion, diced
2 green chiles, minced, seeds and ribs discarded (optional)
3 stalks celery, diced
2 carrots, peeled and diced
1 large potato, peeled and diced
3 tablespoons all-purpose flour
1 tablespoon yellow curry powder
1 tablespoon red curry powder
1.5 teaspoons garam masala
2 quarts chicken stock
2 apples, peeled and chopped
1/2 cup long grain rice
2 cooked, boned, skinned chicken breasts, cubed
salt to taste
ground black pepper to taste
1 pinch dried thyme
1 tablespoon lemon juice
1 cup heavy cream or coconut milk, heated

In a large stock pot, saute garlic, onions, peppers, celery and carrots in butter. Whisk in flour, curry, garam masala and continue to whisk until onions are slightly carmelized. Be careful not to burn your garlic here.

Add chicken stock, continue to whisk a bit, and bring to a boil.

Add apples, potato, salt, pepper, and thyme and continue to simmer around 30 minutes until potato is softened. Blend all contents here, if desired.

Add rice, chicken, and simmer until rice is cooked.

Stir in heated cream or coconut milk until blended.

Ernest's Famous Marinated Crab Claws
Ernest's Orleans Restaurant & Cocktail Lounge

I have two recipes. The first is one that was printed in The Shreveport Times. The second is a recipe my uncle got from a waiter there.

Recipe #1 (newspaper)

1 cup chopped green onions, tops and bottoms
1 cup chopped celery, leaves and stalks
4 pods of garlic chopped
1 cup chopped parsley
2 cups Spanish olive oil
2 cups tarragon vinegar
juice of 6 lemons
2 tablespoons of salt
1 tablespoon pepper

Chop first four ingredients as fine as possible with a proper chef's knife.

Add remaining ingredients and mix well. Let stand at room temperature for 48 hours. Marinate crab claws for 30 minutes before serving.

Some decrease salt to 1 tablespoon and add 1 tablespoon Worchestershire sauce and 1/2 tsp tabasco.

Recipe #2 (via waiter - broken down into smaller serving size, which is in parentheses)

fresh crab claws
4 gallons olive oil (16 ounces)
4 gallons of white vinegar (16 ounces)
1 gallon Lea & Perrins (4 ounces)
1 gallon lemon juice (4 ounces)
1 large box of salt (1 ounce)
1 large box of pepper (1 ounce)
20 stalks of celery, ground (5 stalks)
20 bunches of green onions (5 bunches)
20 bunches of parsley (5 bunches)

In a flat dish arrange crab claws then sprinkle them with onions, celery, capers and parsley. Combine remaining ingredients in food processor or blender; blend well. Pour this over crab claws gently. Cover lightly and refrigerate for 12 to 24 hours shaking them from time to time.

Jambalaya Calculator Version 6.3 Now Available!


This version, like the previous version adds more tabs. It also should be more accurate as far as fill levels. Please don't use any of the older versions - I've worked to increase accuracy with each new release.

The first new tab adds the Procedure for actually cooking the jambalaya.

The next new tab adds a bunch of Tips gleaned from the TigerDroppings Food and Drink Board and a few other sources on the net.

The next tab is a ton of useful Equivalents that I collected while researching for the calculator.

Lastly, the last tab has the official Gonzales Jambalaya Festival Rules. This is just for fun, you don't have to limit yourself to cooking only their way. After all, who wants to drag firewood to your tailgate?

Here is the download link, please let me know if it's not working.

Version 6.3
Always download and use the latest version.

Merry Christmas Coastie.

quick stuffed pork tenderloin:

1 whole tenderloin (1-1.5 lbs)
1 creole mix veggies tub
1 tbsp minced garlic
1 bottle of lawrys hawaiian marinade
slap ya mama
garlic powder
sweet dried basil

First, wash the tenderloin and pat dry. Get a cajun injector with a bigger needle because the marinade mix has seasoning flakes that would clog a regular injector needle. inject 1/4 tube every inch along the sides. two side to side on the top and bottom. slit the tenderloin longways down the middle full length. cut until you get about a half inch to the other side. flap open the tenderloin and rub an extremely light coat of the marinade on the whole inside of the tenderloin. then season with a half tablespoon of slap ya mama and a half tablespoon of garlic powder you may start this earlier but put a little olive oil in a pan and cook down about half the tub of creole mix in a skillet until wilted. add garlic a minute before creole mix is done. take a serving spoon and just apply and spread the creole mix evenly across the whole tenderloin. fold top half over and pinch the seam with toothpicks. coat top and bottom with slap ya mama, garlic powder and dried basil.

alum foil the inside of an oven pan and place the tenderloin in the oven for 30-35 minutes (likely 30) at 420 far.

Review: my wife hated my pork chops, and then proceeded to decide she doesent like pork in general. she loved the tenderloin and put down over half of the damn strap. lol.

The hawaiian injected marinade is whas really makes this thing taste great. and the veggies combined in the middle tasts like a sweet salsa infused with the marinade. outside was nice and lightly crusted also.
