Beach Bread


We could write a chapter on Beach Bread but ain’t nobody got time for that. We have made variations of this recipe FOR-EVA. This is an old trusty- We made it, we liked it and well, we are going to make it again. We made a variation of this recipe on Cooking with Paula Deen and it was a HUGE hit.

Beach Bread

What you need-
½ stick butter
1 clove garlic, minced
¾ cup ripe tomatoes (Seeded, drained and diced)
Cajun seasoning (Slap ya Mama)
½ cup mayonnaise
3/4 cup Colby & Monterey Jack Cheese (or any of your favorite cheese)
3 Tbs. fresh parsley
1 loaf French bread

What you do with the stuff we said you needed-
Get that oven heated to 350 degrees.
In a large skillet melt butter over medium heat. Add your garlic and tomatoes and cook for a few minutes.
Season with Slap ya Mama. In a medium bowl mix mayo, cheese and parsley. Combine butter mixture with mayo mix. Cut loaf of bread in half and then cut bread lengthwise so that you have 4 pieces. Spoon mixture on bread and bake for 5 minutes and then broil for an additional 3- 5 min. or until bread is crisp and cheese is bubbly. Watch closely it will burn. Cut bread into individual portions. Use bread for dipping and sopping.

Watermelon Salad


This is so simple and a nice addition to any backyard BBQ.
Watermelon Salad
1 seedless watermelon
½ red onion, sliced thin
Kosher salt to taste
¼ cup extra virgin olive oil
¼ cup lime juice
3 tablespoons honey
2 tablespoons cilantro

Do this-
Cube watermelon into bite size pieces and toss with onions and salt. Combine olive oil, lime juice, honey and cilantro. Pour over watermelon and toss

Fiery Cajun Shrimp

This is an “old trusty”. We made it, we liked it and we are going to make it again. This would have to be one of our all-time favorite recipes. We have been making this forever and people always love it. The sauce is unbelievably good. With that being said, make sure you serve plenty of French bread for sopping up the spicy buttery goodness.

Get these ingredients-
2 sticks of butter, melted
3 tablespoons of Worcestershire sauce
2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
2 tablespoons Loiusana hot sauce
2 garlic cloves, minced
2 teaspoons Cajun seasoning
2 lbs unpeeled medium shrimp
1 lemon, thinly sliced
2 Tablespoons of fresh parsley
French bread for sopping

Let’s make it-
Alright people, this is so simple to make. Get that oven going and heated to 400°F. Stir together the first 6 ingredients. Pour the mixture into a large casserole dish or an iron skillet. Add your shrimp and top with lemon slices. You are going to want to bake uncovered for about 20 minutes, stirring mixture twice, until shrimp are pink. This is important- after the first 10 minutes check the shrimp several times. As soon as they start turning pink, take them out of the oven. They will continue cooking. You don’t want overcooked shrimp. Add parsley and enjoy!


Grilled Cajun Brussels Sprouts

Throw Brussels into a large, microwave safe mixing bowl, add you 2 tablespoons of water and heat in the microwave on high for about 4 minutes. Drain water off of Brussels. Toss sprouts in 1/2 of the sauce and then put in aluminum foil pack and seal. Grill for about 10 minutes or until desired tenderness. Toss in remaining sauce.
