    ABC to XYZ in Foods: Bam! Emeril Lagasse, Espresso, Easter Bread and more!

    Emeril Lagasse >> is a celebrity chef known in part for introducing the phrases “kick it up a notch” and “bam” to the food world. He may be from Massachusetts, but seems to consider New Orleans and the Louisiana area home. I would call his style of cooking rustic cuisine, a mixture of Creole, Cajun, Asian, Portuguese and French Canadian flavors.

    Pets of the Week

    Dougie (dog) Dougie is a sweet beagle, about 25 pounds, whose favorite things are belly rubs, sleeping and snacks. Dougie has an adorable tail that wags enthusiastically in response to any attention from women. Dougie was one of 60,000 beagles bred annually for research, and he has come a long way in overcoming the trauma that he suffered. While he remains shy and sometimes anxious around men, he not only accepts all the petting his humans want to give, but has started to ask for it.
