Bluesiana Burger combines Louisiana ingredients for a flavor-filled burger. (Post from Acadiana Table.) 

Little bit afraid to post this. I found it in my email (signed up for this blog’s email), just before the 4th and yes, I could have easily posted it — I didn’t because I just didn’t have the time and decided to post it later.

That would be now. (The other 2 recipes in the email are also in today’s posts here on CPR.) Thought it was all pretty spectacular.

BEST Healthy Zucchini Brownies (paleo + gluten-free!) | The Endless Meal

Very daring recipe here: LOADED with ingredients that you sometimes have to fear using all at once in your own kitchen creation of health-food brownies.

(It’s true my own additions to a box of brownies is known to be confectioner’s sugar and Hershey’s chocolate syrup, I still strive to search out health-food brownies for myself, my family and others.)

I give this the golden DARING RECIPE award, which really, I have no power to give: but if I did, I haven’t seen that much packed healthy ingredient in a Paleo brownie before.

Grilled Eggplant Parmesan

A lot of people wouldn’t think of eggplant parmesan as something to want to have for lunch in the summertime. No, it makes no sense to have that kind of autumn-y dish on a June table. But, if you look at it even unconventionally, you can, put your porcelain oven dish into the refrigerator and let it cool overnight. This is so delicious cold at lunch in the summer; but then again, everyone might have already known that.

Cottage Pie – Kirkley Crossing

Article below link has been copied from the link site; it is not my own.

Cottage Pie – Kirkley Crossing

Cottage Pie is made with ground beef. Shepard’s pie is made with lamb. I love lamb, but it is expensive and hard to find so I make Cottage pie instead. This is Gordon Ramsay’s recipe (or close to it, he has never written it down). I watched his video several times and tried to duplicate it as closely as possible. He used lamb of course. Made it last night and it was really good. I let the chicken stock cook down a little too much and I thought the meat was a bit dry, so don’t let that happen to you.


1 pound ground beef, 80 / 20
3 medium russet potato, peeled and diced
1 medium onion, grated
1 large carrot, grated
2 cloves garlic, finely grated
2 tablespoons tomato paste
1/2 teaspoon fresh thyme
1/2 teaspoon rosemary
1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
1/2 glass red wine
1 cup chicken stock
2 egg yolks
2 tablespoons unsalted softened butter
salt and pepper, to taste
1/4 cup Gruyere cheese, grated
1/4 cup Cheddar cheese, grated


1. Heat oven to 450 degrees.

2. Cook potatoes in boiling salted water until they can be easily pierced with a fork. Drain and set aside covered.

3. In a 10 inch cast iron pan, brown the ground beef and drain off the fat.

4. Add grated carrot, grated onion, grated garlic, salt and pepper and continue to cook for 3 to 4 minutes.

5. Add tomato paste, fresh thyme, rosemary, Worcestershire sauce, and red wine. Cook until wine is reduced.

6. Add chicken stock and cook until chicken stock is reduced by half. Add salt and pepper and taste for seasoning. Remove from heat.

7. Prepare mashed potatoes. Rewarm potatoes in their still covered pot to insure they are dry. In a bowl combine, warmed potatoes, egg yolks, butter, salt and pepper. Mix with a hand mixer.

8. Add cheeses and mix some more until smooth.

9. Spread meat mixture evenly across the bottom of the cast iron pan. Top with mashed potato mixture and spread mashed potatoes across the top.

10. Prick potatoes with a fork to make little peaks. This aids in the browning process.

11. Pop into the preheated oven for 30 minutes. Remove and let rest for a few minutes before serving.

On another similar note, to that below, I also found in that search, Hogwarts’ Academy. Though I am not learned in Hogwarts (because I am not a fan of their antics and they never even wrote a story for persons like me, who enjoy sorcery and shamanism, but who have not interest in antics), I know that there are so many persons who have wished to have attended the prestigious preparatory school as a child. It seems to be reaching out to the universe, looking for its people.

I’m rather upset however, that, I may be unleashing new evil upon the face of the earth and that all this coursework will only bring more doom to the planet. But, believing that all learning has to be good fun, I can assume that it probably won’t.

I’m sorry for my negligence then, I barely studied the pages myself to report this great finding in to my blog page as a feature. I hope someone might enjoy what looks like it could be a fun website … for the interested.
