Recipe News: Spicy recipes keep winter nights warm

The Mardi Gras season is already here and Fat Tuesday was celebrated Tuesday! It surely must be getting close to spring, although you would not know it by looking outside. So, in honor of Mardi Gras and to help warm you up in this winter that seems to have no end, I am going to share some hot and zesty Cajun-type down-south recipes!

I took a little trip to Chicago with my daughter last week and we visited some of the awesome restaurants that we don't see around here. We went to the Cheesecake Factory for dinner and there were so many food choices that I had to have a glass of Chianti while I read the menu like a small book! For dinner, I chose the Cajun Jambalaya Pasta served over white and spinach linguini. It was so delicious that I decided to experiment with the Jambalaya Pasta and I came up with a pretty good dish, although I don't want to mislead you, this did not come from the restaurant.

My favorite Cajun food is still my own Jambalaya, a family recipe handed down from an aunt who lived in the Cajun country in Louisiana. It has a lot of the same ingredients as the Jambalaya Pasta, but a few different ones, also, and it is more of a gumbo-soup. If you are interested in that recipe, it has appeared in a past column, but is also printed in our cookbook, "A Dash of Grace," available at the Gazette and Telegraph offices.

Includes recipes for:


  • Grace's Cajun Jambalaya Pasta

  • Shrimp Creole

  • Red Beans & Rice

  • Hoppin' John

  • Mardi Gras King Cake

Recipe News: Tap into citrus for tasty recipes

A recent press release from McIlhenny Co., makers of Tabasco, included several recipes involving the use of citrus fruit in winter recipes.

Enjoying citrus fruit during cold weather is a great way to peak appetites while adding an extra kick of Vitamin C to the diet.

The following recipe for Zesty Tangerine Shrimp Slaw captured my interest. Tangerines are plentiful during winter months, and who doesn't love coleslaw.

According to McIlhenny Co., Zesty Tangerine Shrimp Slaw is a tasty twist on traditional coleslaw.

The juice, peel, and delicate wedges of the tangerine create a mouthwatering flavor that compliments the crispy shredded red cabbage and lightly browned shrimp.

And the addition of original Tabasco sauce and cider vinegar balances the sweetness of the marinade.

Garnish the citrus shrimp slaw with Boston lettuce leaves and you have a deliciously beautiful winterized side salad or light lunch.

Includes recipe for:


  • Zesty Tangerine Shrimp Slaw
