Welcome to Mike’s Kitchen and GardenPosted: May 9, 2012
Welcome to the début of my kitchen and garden blog, a place where I can ramble about my two favorite hobbies. I suppose these are the right hobbies because for the last 30 years I have worked in a profession that deals with so much ugliness and distaste. It is my hope to share some of my experiences with you. Many of my Facebook Friends and Twitter Followers have seen my “What’s for dinner you wonder” or “Today’s gift from our backyard” and asked for recipes or gardening advice. I will use this blog to pass on recipes, gardening tips or just ramble about whatever.
Living in South Louisiana, I naturally favor Creole and Cajun recipes, but also like to cook Italian dishes, as well as, just about any type of barbecue. I have not always been a Cajun. I was raised in the Redneck part of the state (North Louisiana). I married a Cajun girl who taught me the basics of South Louisiana cooking and I took it from there.
All of my gardening posts will be specific to South Louisiana. My gardening knowledge comes from personal experience and serving, many years ago, as a volunteer Certified Master Gardener.
