French cream of garlic soup topped with toasted bread and grated cheese and browned in the oven. Creamy, rich comfort food. Don't be put off by the amount of garlic. It mellows and becomes smooth tasting as it cooks.
Pronounced geh-sten-ye tor-ta. This is a very rich, elegant, chocolate dessert. Chocolate chestnut layer cake, filled with chocolate nut filling, and topped with whipped cream and chestnut purée. A bit involved, but worth it. Perfect for holidays or other special occasions.
A South Louisianna favorite. For the most part tourists can't stand it and locals can't live without it, but one thing's for sure: this WILL wake you up in the morning. Traditionally made in a French Drip pot, called a biggin, but a modern electric coffee maker works just fine.
This rich, creamy chocolate torte makes a decadent holiday or special occasion dessert. Creamy cheese layer, topped with a chocolate pudding layer, topped with whipped cream, shaved chocolate and almonds, all inside a pecan crust. Delicious!
Taco soup made with salsa, ground beef, beans and corn, seasoned with taco seasoning and ranch. This is a chunky soup that can be served over tortilla chips or Fritos like a Frito Pie. If you like it soupier just add water with the rest of the ingredients after browning the beef. Really good, and even better the next day. Freezes well too.
