I'm working on a laptop outside on this beautiful day, anticipating the French Quarter Festival which kicks off here in New Orleans tomorrow (Thursday) and it's bound to be packed. GW Fin's invited a few people in earlier this week to sample what they'll be offering Fest-goers- their ever-popular Salty Malty Sundae, and new this year, a Crawfish Po'boy. You won't want to miss either.

If you're not in New Orleans, there are plenty of other festivals around the state; chance of rain on Sunday, but it'll be scattered, so pack an umbrella and get out there anyway!

Enjoy this week's recipes, share them with family and friends, and, as always, let me know what's on your mind. Have a great weekend.

Best regards,

Lemon-Garlic Broiled Shrimp

Lemon-Garlic Broiled Shrimp

This easy recipe is in one of my favorite community cookbooks, Pirate's Pantry, from the Junior League of Lake Charles. Just make sure you use domestic shrimp, preferably Louisiana wild-caught shrimp, and have plenty of toasted French bread on hand for sopping up the sauce.

Shrimp and Orzo Salad

Shrimp and Orzo Salad

This easy recipe comes together in just a few minutes and is good served warm or cold. In fact, it's better after the flavors have had time to meld a bit-- any leftovers make a great lunch the following day.

Pasta with Mini Meatballs & Escarole

Pasta with Mini-Meatballs & Escarole

I bought the cookbook Back Pocket Pasta on a whim last summer, and it's turned into one I browse for inspiration on a regular basis. Pasta is easy to cook and my husband could eat it twice a week with basic marinara sauce, but I prefer a little variety. Every recipe I've prepared has been good, and this one, a riff on Italian Wedding Soup, is no exception.
