Happy Easter, to those of you who celebrate it -- hopefully with a long weekend! I need to get my herb garden started, along with some peppers and cucumbers. Mine is a container garden, and I've never had any luck growing tomatoes in them.

We are running two exciting contests right now. The first, in conjunction with the Louisiana Seafood Promotion and Marketing Board, will deliver crawfish tails and fixings to one lucky winner. The second one in a stay at the historic Hotel Monteleone in the New Orleans' French Quarter, and tickets to the New Orleans Wine and Food Experience. Enter them both, and good luck!

We're deep into the final weeks of putting the May/June issue to bed. There's a feature story on a wide variety of potato salads; I bet I've cooked 15 pounds of potatoes in the last few weeks. But it was worth it; we've come up with some great options that will be suitable for most any potluck you find yourself invited to this spring and summer. Some of them include sweet Louisiana seafood -- if you visit our Facebook fan page you'll see a few out takes, along with the reason why my cat Jack is not allowed at photo shoots when we're using seafood.

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

Ham & Potato Casserole

Ham & Potato Casserole

Here's a very tasty, very easy recipe for using up any leftover ham from your Easter dinner. And once you make it, you may find yourself buying ham just so you can make it again. Bonus- make it up to the point of baking it, cover it tightly, and freeze for a dinner a few weeks down the road. Let it thaw partially before baking.

Risotto with Crab and Shrimp

Luscious! There's no cheese in this recipe, making it suitable for the purists who won't mix cheese and seafood. It's simply seasoned with onion, garlic, and tomatoes.
