New Embellished Bayou Website for 2013

I’m proud to announce the launch of my new Embellished Bayou website for 2013!  I’ll still be making some tweaks over the next week, but I think it is looking good so far!


I know I have not been keeping up with this blog as much as I’d like to or said I would, but hopefully I can do better in 2013.  This way I’ll be able to keep all of my Etsy/embroidery stuff separate on the website and post more crafty non-business things here on the blog.

Thanks to everyone for your support this year, best wishes for a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!

Happy Mardi Gras!

For the first time since I can remember (maybe ever?!) I am away from Louisiana on Mardi Gras!  Actually, I am travelling home today, but I missed the weekend parades and Mardi Gras will be all but over when I get home. 

I did have fun making some cute onesies and t-shirts for my Etsy shop.  The king cake design was new this year.




I’ll just have to rely on memories of past Mardi Gras fun times and look forward to next year!  Check out THIS post from a couple years ago for some of my Mardi Gras memories.

Mike’s Special Shrimp

One of our favorite restaurants to visit when we head down to Baton Rouge for LSU games is the legendary Mike Anderson’s.  I hope they are re-open in time for the 2012 season after a recent fire! I got a craving for one of his specialties and decided to whip it up myself.  Luckily I had this cookbook on hand to guide me.


This recipe serves 4 to 6 people, and since it’s just the two of us, I improvised a little, cutting the butter way down to about half a stick and Worcestershire sauce to about 1/2 cup.


Popped it a 375 degree oven for about 15 minutes until done and bubbly.


Together with a sweet potato and some edamame, it was a delicious and nutritious meal, not to mention quick and easy!

Gidget’s True Love

Happy Valentine’s Day!

I hope you’re able to spend the day with someone you love.  Speaking of love, let’s talk a little about Gidget’s true love…..BACON! If there is such thing as re-hab for bacon addiction, then Gidget surely needs to check-in ASAP!


Gidget knows when it’s Saturday morning, because that’s the day we all sleep in and no one gets up early.  Saturday is BACON day!  She eagerly awaits us to finish our breakfast so she can get her own special treat.


Soon this calm, poised pug will spin herself into a frenzy across the kitchen floor for a taste of that meaty goodness!


Almost time…..


Finally, her patience is rewarded!


Wonder what the daily recommended intake of bacon is for pugs?!  About the same as chocolate is for me, I bet….
