2. Tiny Corn Fritters

Little bites with an unbelievable taste

From, "Little Rock Cooks...Recipes Handed Down from Generation to Generation," published in cooperation with your Daily InBox newsletter.


17-ounce can cream style corn

1-1/2 cups cracker crumbs

1 large egg

1/2 teaspoon grated onion

Salt and pepper


Mix all ingredients the day before cooking so crumbs will absorb moisture.  Drop from a spoon into hot fat and fry until brown.  Drain on paper towel.  These may be kept in a warm oven for refill during a party.

3.  Brown sugar and pecans make the crust special. After baking, the pie gets a twist: it's turned upside down onto the serving plate, transforming the sticky bottom crust into a moist, nutty topping.

4. Tortillas Dipped in Refried Beans

This dish from Mexico makes a great snack.

Serves 2-3

1 can Refried beans
8 Corn tortillas
Oil for frying
Monterey Jack cheese, shredded

Puree the beans in a food processor or blender. Transfer to
a small skillet and slowly heat (the beans should have a
sauce-like consistency). Heat the oil in a separate
skillet. Cook the tortillas one at time for 3-4 seconds per
side. Immediately dip each tortilla in the beans. Using
tongs fold into half and then into quarters. Arrange
several on plates. Top with the cheese and salsa.

5.                       Pasta, Seafood and Eggs:
                        Truites aux Amandes
                        (Trout with Almonds)
                      from River Road Recipes...
                  The Textbook of Louisiana Cuisine
    4 medium sized trout, 1 to 1-1/2 pounds
    3/4 cup flour (or less)
    2/3 cup butter
    1/2 cup heavy cream
    2/3 cup toasted, slivered almonds
    Salt and pepper to taste
    1 thinly sliced lemon
         Clean, wash and scale trout.  Dry thoroughly and roll
    lightly in flour.  Melt the butter in a frying pan.  When it is
    hot, but not brown, put in trout.  Cook over low heat 5 to 7
    minutes; turn carefully, and cook on other side for the same
    length of time.  When golden brown, salt and pepper them and lay
    them carefully on a heated serving platter.  Add cream to the
    butter remaining in pan; mix rapidly; add almonds and stir
    carefully so that the almonds will not be broken and heat again
    just to the boiling point.  Do not boil sauce.  Spoon sauce over
    trout; add thin rounds of lemon and serve immediately.
