Gulf Coast Guilty Pleasures!

Whether you're looking for some Mississippi Mud Pie or a tasty Louisiana Crawfish, you are sure to enjoy our recipe trip to the Gulf Coast region of the United States! And, although I fell short in finding exact matches for some of the states' famous foods, I came pretty close. Close enough that I think you'll like what you see and be motivated to give these guilty pleasures a go in your kitchen.

I always thought Louisiana would be most famous for something like King's cake, baked and eaten during Mardi Gras. But no, the natives down there prefer Crawfish when it comes to traditional eats. I came close with delicious Tuna & White Bean Salad to tempt your seafood loving taste buds.

In Mississippi, they are all about Mud Pie, which is fine in my book. As I had no pictures of a perfect Mud Pie, I substituted with this Rocky Road Clusters recipe.

Alabama was an easy one! Alabamans love all things Cornbread, and I had the perfect Johnny Cake Cornbread to tempt your tummy.

Another easy one to guess - Georgia is still in love with their favorite fruit, Peaches! Here is a Peach & Almond Bread recipe to try, just in time for Fall entertaining.

And we can't forget Florida. Can you say Oranges? I didn't have any Orange recipes that really jumped out at me so I included this Fruity Rice Pilaf, a nice dish to add those citrus gems to.
