After eating my first Blackened Po Boy in New Orleans I could not wait to experiment with the Blackening technique! So I did a little researching and discovered what has now become one of my favorite meals!

From the moment my chicken hit the hot skillet and started blackening around the bubbling butter I knew this would be a huge hit in my household!

I used these recipes:

I finally had FRENCH ONION SOUP at Copeland’s Cheesecake Bistro!
Traditional rich beef broth of stewed onions topped with toasted French bread, smothered with melted Swiss and Mozzarella cheeses. I can not tell you how cheesy and delicious it was! I savored every spoonful of onion, bread and cheese! Mmm mm mmm..

Branson ordered the FRENCH CLUB- Thinly sliced roasted turkey breast, crisp smoked bacon, lettuce, sliced tomatoes and garlic mayonnaise stacked on toasted French bread.

I totally understand how the BBQ SHRIMP LINGUINE is aΒ CCB Classic! Jumbo shrimp sautΓ©ed with green onions, Creole seasoning and lemon butter garlic sauce over linguine in our original cheese pizza bowl. The pasta, bread and shrimp had soOo much flavor!

Copeland’s Cheesecake Bistro is one of my fav restaurants! Their food is absolutely amazing and the dining experience is one of the most cozy, romantic Southern experiences you can ask for.Β

Raspberry Truffletini and Tira Misu Martini from Carousel Bar at Hotel Monteleone 🍸

My new favorite bar in New Orleans, hands down! Β  I’m so mad at myself for not going to this place four years in a row now. I will never go to New Orleans again without stopping by for a spin at the Carousel Bar. It truly is New Orleans hidden gem!Β

Light refreshments in Private Club Lounge at The Sheraton New Orleans! We stopped by for snacks and ended up enjoying wine, cocktails and the breathtaking river views of New Orleans! This was Red Diamond Merlot, assorted aged cheeses, roast beef, steamed Asian vegetables, mixed fruit, sausage & cream cheese croissants, and the bet homemade French Dip I’ve ever eaten! It was so fresh and the texture was unbelievable!

Road Trip Vacation

Hey hey…sorry I’ve been M.I.A!
I just got back from New Orleans for Mardi Gras! I have soooo many awesome dishes to share with you guys! We ate so much food, I think I came home a pound heavier or two (got my fingers crossed!)
…so as soon as I finish unpacking and gather all the pics from my camera and iPhone, I’ll share them!

Happy Eating
