Happy July 4th! The holiday snuck up on me this year, but here it is this weekend. Last year we had a big party- that won't happen this year, unfortunately, but we will do some outdoor grilling if the weather permits. Jim's birthday is next week and he has requested yellow cake with chocolate buttercream frosting, and I intend to make it as cupcakes so that we can share with a few friends. Outside and socially distant, of course.

If you are a fan of grilled corn, you'll want to check out this feature story about all the options for yummy toppings for the corn: Grilled Corn with a lot of options

And if you're a fan of potato salad (who isn't???) you'll want to check out this feature on Potato Salad.

Calling all Louisiana chefs! The Louisian Seafood Cookoff is on schedule for late August, and the Louisiana Seafood Promotion and Marketing Board is actively taking applications for the competetion. If you think you've got what it takes to be the next King or Queen of Louisiana Seafood, fill out the application here for consideration. The deadline is approaching, so don't delay.

Don't forget to check out the special June digital edition of Louisiana Kitchen & Culture; click the cover above right to get started reading. It has some of my favorite recipes and travel destinations from the first eight years of publishing.

Enjoy the recipes, and, as always, let me know what's on your mind. Have a great weekend, wash your hands, and don't touch your face!

Best regards,


Susan Ford, Publisher and Editorial Director

Slow-Grilled Bork Butt

Slow-Grilled Pork Butt

We made this over July 4th a few years ago; it was so tender, a gentle nudge caused it to fall apart. It takes advance planning, and some time, mainly hands off, to execute; in my opinion, worth every minute!

Grilled Shrimp with Peach (or Mango) Salsa

Grilled Shrimp with Mango (or Peach) Salsa

This easy recipe is full of bright, summer flavors; feel free to substitute in fresh Louisiana peaches for the mango if you have access to them.

Molasses Baked Beans

Molasses Baked Beans

This old-fashioned Southern baked beans recipe skips the bean-soaking step but does start with dried beans. The star ingredient is molasses; the twist ingredient is a little sweet pickle relish. It's excerpted from the excellent Screen Doors and Sweet Tea by Martha Hall Foose.

Sweet and Sour Coleslaw

Sweet and Sour Coleslaw

This has been my go-to coleslaw for years; it needs to be made the day before you intend to serve it, and it holds very well for several days in the refrigerator.
