We've been loving the new kitchen and I've been rediscovering the cookbooks in our pantry. The two cookbooks on rotation for the last week have been from Emeril and Bobby Flay. One of the highlights by far has been the discovery of Emeril' s Maw-Maw's Slaw recipe. It involves making some homemade mayonnaise which is actually pretty easy to do. I normally like vinegar base slaws more than mayonnaise based, but the creole/whole grained mustard on this one makes it one of the best slaws I have ever had. A picture of the finished product from today's work in the kitchen is above. This is on the menu tonight along with some of Eggplant Crab Cakes from a recipe I found from Andrea's in New Orleans along with some homemade remoulade. Oh. And dessert? Blueberry cream cheese king cake from Keller's! Is it time to eat yet?
