One good thing about living in Louisiana is the abundant number of festivals and celebrations on any given weekend.
Hello, Mardi Gras, Jazz Fest and Saints football season!
We are proud of our standing as the Festival Capital of America.
Believing there is as much life in the pre and post party as there is in the actual party itself gets our Laissez les bon temps rouler way of life rolling!
Celebrating Earth Day fills the Pelican bill as Louisianians appreciate the importance of preserving, sustaining and conserving our natural resources, coastlines, wetlands, forests, wildlife habitats through environmental awareness and action to keep Louisiana beautiful while doing so!
I am peapared for Earth Day by going green, recycling and repurposing left over green peas and pearl onions.
My I’ve got to try this recipe moment came as soon as I saw the April issue of Epicurious magazine.
The gorgeous peasentation featuring vintage hotel china (love, love, love!) grabbed my attention.
