need boudin recommendations

Venture forth to Baton Rouge to Jerry Lee's on Greenwell Springs Road. The best in the region. Worth the drive.

Oyster/Seafood situation in New Orleans affected by oil spill?

I for one think we need to start ignoring the media and their drama rama about the spill. Enough already. Support Louisiana products, all Louisiana products and if it costs a little more so be it. We need to be more focused on keeping the money here. Chowhound Mods: Sorry if this isn't on point.

Donut Muffins

Add some chopped nuts to the cinnamon sugar. I do that with my biscuit muffins which are very similar

South Louisiana hot sauces

Crystal doesn't have the vinegary (sic) bite that Tabasco has. I love it.

Need ideas for New Orleans food gifts to bring back for co-workers

pralines are a must. File powder is an acquired taste. I wouldn't do that. There are lots of local preserves and Occhipinti olive salad mix is extraordinary.

Baton Rouge - NOLA I-10 Road Food Recommendations

cafe des Amis is west of Baton Rouge heading towards Lafayette. Oak Alley on the River Road has a great restaurant. Hymels for seafood in convent. These are side trips. BR has tons of great restaurants - depends on price point and what you have in mind. Jubans is top tier.

Need a signature dessert! Can I steal yours?

Tarte a la bouille - it is a cajun custard pie. It is excellent. John Folse has one on his site. I make something similar to caramel matzoh crunch using graham crackers.

Foodies going to Houma/Thibodaux

For downhome seafood and pasta Politzs in Thibodaux. Not a great wine list but great softshell crab. Flanagans has a good steak also. If you are interested in plantation dining go to Oak Alley. We ate there on Easter and I had excellent crawfish stew over fried catfish and my boyfriend had red beans and rice and said it was excellent.

River Road drive from Baton Rouge to NOLA

Bocage was bought by a Texan and redone. Not sure if they are serving food. My hat is off to the Texan. We went to the auction and the home needed help. Sorry Chowhound mods for getting off topic.

River Road drive from Baton Rouge to NOLA

We ate at Oak Alley yesterday. It was excellent. I had crawfish stew over fried catfish and the salad with the house viniagrete. My boyfriend had the red beans and rice and said they were excellent also. Yum. Wish I would have saved room for the dessert. They brought out a tray but we were both too full. Bocage Plantation was recently restored. Not sure if they serve food yet.

Soft Shell Crab: Spring 2010

If you want to venture to Thibodaux - I had one of the best soft shell crabs I've ever eaten at a restaurant called Politz's. Excellent menu. Not much of a wine list.

Herb Garden for a Novice

try hydroponic gardening under lights. Check out the aerogardens or rig something up. Herbs need lots of sun and depending on what kind - different kinds of soil/water requirements. Good luck. I prefer highly aromatic ones - just personal preference.

Dufrene's Bakery - Golden Meadow and McKenzies

Does anyone remember Dufrenes Bakery In Golden Meadow and McKenzies?

Any idea where I could get the recipe for the small apple pies Dufrenes made and the wonderful little cupcake creations with a pecan and cherry on top from McKenzies. Those were two of my childhood favorites. Thanks.

Trip to Grand Isle

There is also a restaurant called Flanagans in Thibodaux that has excellent steaks. You need to go to Rouses Supermarket and pick up a tarte a la bouille pie.

Branching out from New Orleans

Ma Mama's is great. I couldn't remember the name. Camilles has good seafood. I too loathe Satterfields. Joe's changed ownership again recently.

Branching out from New Orleans

Baton Rouge and surrounding area has many excellent restaurants - ranging from Joe's Dreyfus Store in Livonia to Jubans and Galatoires in Baton Rouge. You need to go down river road and see the plantations. The North shore has excellent restaurants also - La Provence, Trey Yuen, Nuvolaris, Sal & Judys. Hymels in Convent (between Baton Rouge and New Orleans) has excellent seafood. Enjoy your stay.

Road Trip The Second(Maybe the First)

In Baton Rouge Jerry Lee's on Greenwell Springs Road is worth the drive for beef jerky. Joes Dreyfus is good and also Camilles (the old Salter's Truck Stop) in Livonia. Camilles is rustic but great seafood.
