Slow Cooker Red Beans and Rice

Slow Cooker Red Beans and Rice makes a delicious dinner... and this recipe is SO simple! This well-loved Louisiana entree, which calls for dried red beans, Andouille sausage, green bell pepper, onion and spices, is the perfect meal year-round. This recipe, which is perfect for Mardi Gras festivities, football tailgates and while hosting a party, because it requires little hands-on time, cooks unassisted in the slow cooker and feeds a crowd.

We've gone to Louisiana twice in the last four weeks for weddings. But today?

Sunday Snippets: The (Belated) Mardi Gras Edition

Sunday Snippets // The Speckled Palate
Last weekend, Winston and I headed down to New Orleans to celebrate Mardi Gras with friends. That's why there was no Sunday Snippets feature last week. Needless to say, we had a darn good time in the Crescent City. And needless to say, I was zonked out when we finally arrived back in Baton Rouge, so writing on Sunday evening was a no-go. So this week's feature will contain TWO WEEKS of snippets. Prepare yourselves.
