It’s Crawfish Season – Yay!!
This Week on Twila TV’s “Holly’s Trim & Terrific Louisiana Kitchen” I featured our out-of-this-world Louisiana ingredients in the Crawfish and Artichoke Rice Dish. I look forward to crawfish season every year and love to cook with the leftover tails from our yummy crawfish boils. If you love fettuccine sauce you will love this dish!
I am a bread girl, and I just had to pair this savory recipe with one of my all-time favorite sides – Yam Biscuits! Healthy comfort food at it’s finest, these delicious biscuits have a touch of yam’s natural sweetness that will melt in your mouth. Best of all, they use Bisquick baking mix for extra ease and yumminess! Serve them as a side to a meat tray, with your meal and especially at breakfast – so many ways to gobble up this standout snack! Watch me make these dishes and more.
