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:

And please watch this video…it will make you want to cook this dish I promise &;

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 a CCB Classic! Jumbo shrimp sautéed 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.

Our New Orleans trip would not be complete without visiting Oceana! It’s one of my favorite restaurants off Bourbon Street!

Our seats had amazing views of the chaos that is Mardi Gras…we actually witnessed Mardi Gras Cops passing right by our window! 

…And Crabcakes fans listen up…Oceana’s crabcakes are to die for! Famous! I can’t believe we didn’t order some as our appetizer this time! I had to take a pic of their menu, couldn’t help but notice the gator…Louisiana classic!

So the next time you’re in New Orleans, stop by  
739 Conti (Corner of Conti and Bourbon) • (504) 525-6002
HOURS: Breakfast 8am-1pm • Lunch 10am-4pm • Dinner 4pm-1am

Who said milkshakes were not Winter appropriate?!

I could have settled for just a cappuccino milkshake, but after leaning halfway across the car and seeing ‘Cajun chicken sandwich’ and ‘onion rings’ staring at me how could a sweet Southern girl say no!? 

Branson ordered the barbecue sandwich Cookout tray with hush puppies, onion rings and a corn dog as his sides, and a Peach Cobbler milkshake!

I listened to my roaring belly and ordered the Cajun chicken sandwich with no mayonnaise, onion rings and fries ( I asked for Cajun seasoning but I guess I threw her all off by asking for no mayo) and my favorite milkshake everrrr, Mrs. Cappuccino!
