If you can’t be in New Orleans at the drop of a hat (like me), the best thing to do is to cook something that reminds you of your travels. That’s my humble opinion. Cooking always takes me to the places I want to go or revisit or live. When I get to dreaming about Louisiana, it’s time to make Maque Choux. This fiery veggie combination is a vacation for my palette and helps spice up a quick weeknight dinner.
