Lighter Tastes from Mississippi by The Accidental Cook!
8 Recipes Created by MSHEBERT
This cookbook will take favorite dishes from the Gulf Coast of Mississippi and give them a lighter twist! Gumbo, shrimp, jambalaya, and that all time southern favorite Fried Chicken! Now I didn't learn these by Accident. I call myself the accidental cook because, well, I'm not all that graceful!

This 15 Bean recipe can be made with either Cajun spice pack, or the plain, with salt and pepper to taste. It can be made in a crockpot (soak beans overnight, or at least 6 hours, first), or cooked on top of the stove. Eat as a main course soup OR SERVE OVER RICE, like a true cajun would! My husband eats ALL beans over rice!Submitted by MSHEBERT
Cookbook creator says: Here in Mississippi, red beans & rice is a standard "Monday special." Something women put on the stove to simmer on the traditional wash day of yesteryear. Now, we have washing machines & dryers. But there's nothing like coming home after a hard day @ the office to the delicious aroma of red beans!Submitted by MSHEBERT
This delicious eggplant dish is savory, and filling, but not heavy, and it's a great way to use this summer vegetable.
This recipe can be made very quickly using a skillet and the microwave. The oven could be used for the final step to provide a more "roasted" and browned appearance, but either way it still tastes good! In the summer, using the microwave helps keep the kitchen cooler, and that is the way I show it in the picture. Alternatively, the eggplant could be peeled, and this recipe would make a wonderful casserole supper dish!Submitted by MSHEBERT

Cookbook creator says: For a little cajun flair sprinkle a little Tony's seasoning on the chicken before flouring and shake a drop or two of Louisiana Hot Sauce on the mushroom/artichoke wine sauce!Submitted by MSHEBERT
