| Food and Drink Board|| What is your favorite Pandora station for cooking? - LouisianaLady on 7/5/14 at 7:46 pm|
Or just music in general, not necessarily Pandora.
I usually do a Duke Ellington station, an Otis Redding station, or a Sinatra station.
Once I have my wine and my music, I'm in heaven....
| O-T Lounge|| Response to the transgender thread from a few weeks ago.. - LouisianaLady on 7/2/14 at 1:02 pm|
Not sure who remembers, but there was a video floating around on Facebook about a little girl who acted like a boy, so her parents have basically made her a boy.
There was a lengthy thread about it, which I posted a little in, but admittedly didn't pay much attention to the full story.
| O-T Lounge|| Those living in small spaces: Level Billing (Entergy) - LouisianaLady on 6/19/14 at 8:29 am|
I just moved to a new place by myself, so I'm finally not splitting bills with anyone anymore.
In my old place, it was nothing for our bill to be $200.. but there were 2 of us (plus her bf), and someone was there at pretty much all times. Also.. it was an above-ground house in the Garden District...

I've been playing around with my new electric deep fryer lately, and decided to do buffalo wings this weekend.
I gave them a test run Saturday night with traditional buffalo sauce, and they were so good that I did 32 more last night.. with other homemade sauces.
I also did some chicken livers....
| Food and Drink Board|| Crawfish Fettuccine with Leftovers from a Boil - LouisianaLady on 5/5/14 at 11:57 am|
I did some digging around in old threads, and I think I've decided to use my boil leftovers for:
Veggie Cakes (one poster said he pulses the veggie sides with breadcrumbs and makes cakes and pan fries them.. sounds really good)
Garlic bread with the boiled garlic and some bu...
| 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:...

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

Quite interesting. Some really good advice in there. Some so-so advice as well. Thoughts? ...

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...
