New Orleans BBQ Shrimp

The Saints are playing in the Thursday Night Football game tonight which means an excuse to cook up a creole feast.  New Orleans is known for some of the best food in the country and from crawfish etouffee to bread pudding, I love traditional New Orleans cuisine.  I wanted to share one of my favorite recipes, BBQ…

In the book, he discusses…

Freeway Series

Dodgers vs. Angels games are referred to…
