| Food and Drink Board|| Beef Wellington (Pic thread - a la MeridianDog) - LouisianaLady on 3/11/14 at 1:11 pm|
I've been trying to make dishes I've never made before each time I cook, so Saturday night, I tried my hand at Beef Wellington.
I spent the day Saturday frantically store hopping, and was unable to find 100% duck or goose liver for the recipe, so I had to use a duck and pork blend..
| Food and Drink Board|| Where can I buy foie gras in Baton Rouge? - LouisianaLady on 3/8/14 at 2:41 pm|
Making two individual Beef Wellingtons tonight, and am considering the splurge for foie gras rather than just chicken liver pate (depending on how much of a splurge it is).
Anyone have experience buying this successfully in BR?
I feel like this is a long shot :lol:...
| Food and Drink Board|| My Food Weekend in NOLA (Kinda with pics) - LouisianaLady on 1/7/14 at 3:57 pm|
Jones and I had a wedding in NOLA this past weekend to attend, so we decided to make a holiday food trip out of it. I wanted to hit some of the spots that I've heard lots of good things about, and Priceline let us name our own price for $60/night at Marriott and Renaissance, so this was the perfect ...
| Food and Drink Board|| WFDT: Monday Night - LouisianaLady on 10/7/13 at 5:13 pm|
I have a butternut squash, so I'm going to try my hand at a small portion of soup. Not following a recipe, but will likely roast the squash in the oven. Will saute onions and garlic.. mix all with chicken broth, heavy whipping cream, seasonings (thinking a dash of cinnamon or nutmeg?).. pulse all in...
| Food and Drink Board|| Sunday Dinner Thread - LouisianaLady on 10/6/13 at 4:23 pm|
Couldn't wait because I was happy about what I made. Plus I only cook one meal on Sundays and we eat it between normal lunch and dinner times.
Today: Chicken Fricassee served over biscuits and fresh green beans boiled then sautéed with garlic and lemon

I realize this is a really stupid question, but I never turn on my TV and the internet just isn't helping.
I watched Season 1 of New Girl on Netflix and fell in love. I've been online streaming Season 2, and just finishe...
| Food and Drink Board|| Did y'all know this existed? - LouisianaLady on 8/16/13 at 11:10 pm|
Spent the day with my mom today. Being that I'm kinda frightened by the College Drive Walmart, we decided to peruse the one in Central (where I'm from) and I spotted this gem.
I turned to the back for mic...

Yes, it was a Reddit thread, but I spent 2 days engrossed in it and was wondering what the folks here would say.
For me, I have to explain to a regular basis normal basic things going on in the world to my friend. She doesn't have cable, but she also makes no effort to read any news site or even ...
| Food and Drink Board|| My At-Home Burger (with pics) - LouisianaLady on 6/23/13 at 10:52 pm|
I've never made burgers on my own mainly because I never liked the ones my parents made growing up, but I've been reading up on the keys to the best burger, and decided to try my hand tonight.
I started by getting brisket ground for me at Fresh Market. Because brisket is 25-30% fat, it works well...
| Movie/TV Board|| Before Midnight -- In Theaters Today - LouisianaLady on 6/14/13 at 5:11 pm|
Going see this movie tonight. I haven't seen the two prequels, but I'm thinking since it's been 18 years since the first was made, I can maybe get by without cramming them in today.. and watch them later (out of order).
The two prequels have 95% and 100% on Rotten Tomatoes.
Before Midnight alr...

I know I've seen this topic on here, but I just searched and only found threads for sides with crawfish etouffee or fettucine.. so I apologize.
Having a crawfish boil tomorrow, and I wanted to make something else too. I already will be doing salad just because it's nice to have something cold and...

| Food and Drink Board|| Are you allergic to any foods? - LouisianaLady on 4/29/13 at 10:05 pm|
Always interesting to hear what people are allergic to.
I'm not allergic to anything that I know of.
Topic sparked because a lady came in to my work the other day and ordered a salad to start. When I brought it out and later came back to check on her, she asked me if I could take it back and g...
| Food and Drink Board|| Went to Lava Cantina in Perkins Rowe Friday.. - LouisianaLady on 4/14/13 at 9:12 pm|
I will start with the positives. The salsa and the guacamole were both fresh and great. Big chunks of garlic and onion.. perfect flavor on both. The salsa verde wasn't nearly as good as the red salsa because it was served hot as if it was just cooked, which was weird for salsa.. but the red s...

I searched "Marcello" and found nothing so I apologize if this has already been discussed.
There's a sign in front of the old calendars on Perkins that I'm pretty sure said Enoteca Marcello was coming. Someone told me they think they remember seeing something about it in biz report. Anyone know a...

Anyone know about this? I just saw an advertisement for this in 225 Magazine.

Per the new F&D trend, I took photos of each delicious step of a lasagna recipe I tried out tonight. It's rare I cook, so I might as well document.
My family did not step off the boat on Ellis Island, nor do I have any Italian in me.. I'm just a southern redneck who has no idea. Now that we know ...

What's the deal? All the stereotypes that exist about the types of people who don't tip but the most common I find is groups of 21-23 year old frat guys. The worst part is they have chicks hanging around. What kind of girl finds a guy who doesn't tip attractive?
Someone shed some light on this for ...

I did a search and saw Coquette's lunch and dinner talked about plenty, but I couldn't find much about brunch other than they apparently stopped doing it for a while and have started again.
I've never been to Coquette, but I made reservations for brunch this Sunday. The website seems to have a $3...
