(All 2011 FReeper Recipes are on my profile page as an Online Cookbook Thread Link)
It looks like a nice basic recipe to keep around!
That is the one recipe I posted that I have not tried, but I trust theMom as a good cook.
You can ping her if you have any questions.
Been looking for a good pinto bean recipe - thanks. Also, the shrimp creole looks interesting. My mom used to buy a frozen creole when I was a little tyke. When she would make it, it was always a special treat and I really miss it - never found anything to compare. Your recipe looks like it might come close so I’ll for sure have to try it.
Me too, my grandmother was of Pennsylvania Dutch descent. so there was a lot of that and plenty of southern style cooking, too, ‘cause my Dad was a Georgia/Florida native.
oh ping, nom nom nom!
Baked Leftover Beef Sandwich
This is so good and transforms leftover beef into a new dish.
Remove inside crumb from heated sub roll. Leave the roll hinged.
Fill w/ leftover chopped roast beef which was blended w/ your fave Ragu Sauce. Place the filled open-face roll on baking pan.
Top w/ Parmesan, olive/oil drizzle, Provolone cheese slices. Bake till cheese and bread edges are lightly browned.
Can eat with knife and fork with a side of salad and steamed vegetables.
Or close and eat as a sandwich.
Apple Cinnamon Tea—4-6 Servings
Steep 4 min: 5 teaspoons loose tea, 2 cups boiling water, broken cinnamon/stick. Add in/stir to dissolve 3 tablespoons brown sugar. Add 2 cups warm apple cider.
Strain into pretty teapot and serve.
Since it's Carnival time with only a few weeks to Mardi Gras does anyone have any favorite, preferable home made/traditional NOLA/Carnival/Mardi Gras/Cajun/Creole, recipes to share?
Mrs p6 made outstanding King Cakes last year, IIRC I posted them with pics.
This year I intend to make my own Po Boys and even though I - unlike Mrs p6 - am NOT a shrimp fan I'm going to try my hand using them in my jambalya/gumbo. Well at least a few, LOL!
Thanks! Didn’t see this until after I had posted asking for creole/cajun foods for carnival. Mrs p6 will like the shrimp version as long as it’s not too spicey. I’ll try some with chicken and hot, hehehe.
Its a darn good recipe.
I giggled a bit when I read your salad recipe. When I was a teenager, I “made up” a recipe that is quite similar. I use two hard boiled chopped eggs, and no shrimp. I grew up in Iowa..shrimp was only seen covered in bread crumbs...LOL!
Other than that, it has identical ingredients. I still make it to this day; it is a perfect “lunch” in the summer.
My sister-in-law usually has chickens and is trying to give the eggs away ..... I’ll have to give eggs a try in this salad since they are much more plentiful around here than shrimp & cheaper, too! Thanks for the idea.
I don’t know if I’ve posted this or not but using buttered bread slices is a quick and super easy way to make a cobbler if you don’t want to mess with a rolled out crust. A quick cobbler is also great for using up fresh fruit that’s getting old.
Sliced Bread Crust Cobbler
In a 7x11 baking pan, dump in a canned fruit filling or fruit slices with sugar and cinnamon or your own spices.
5-6 slices of white bread - spread thickly with butter, slice quarter strips and place on top of the fruit. Sprinkle with sugar and cinnamon or spices to your taste.
Bake at 350 for 30 minutes or until bread is golden toasted.
Back in the day, we could get salt pork but like brains, moutain oysters and sweet breads, it’s all but impossible to find.
Fried Salt Pork
Slice the salt pork like you would thick bacon. Soak it in water for 30 minutes to get rid of some of the salt. Change the water and soak another 30 minutes. The longer it’s in water, the more salt is taken out. Pat dry and fry like bacon. Yumm!
I never cared much about French Toast. The wife makes it once in a while, but this morning I had a hankering and found this technique which turned out well.
Preheat oven to 375
1/2 C milk
Blend ingredients and soak bread. I used 4 slices of French bread. Melt some butter in skillet and lightly brown bread on both sides - 2-3 minutes. Transfer to baking sheets and 15 minutes in the oven.
I’m also baking a loaf of cheese bread from a recipe I found on the bag of King Arthur flour. If it turns out, will share that later.

Your recipe for making the pinto beans in the crock pot is great! I’ve always soaked the beans overnight and cooked on the stove top. . .Thank you for posting!
