Meet the Author

Pamela Lyles has been cooking and creating in the kitchen since she was a little girl. Growing up in New Orleans, she observed the magic in her own family’s kitchen and her grandmother’s kitchen. For the past twenty-five years, she has worked in sales management and marketing for the cosmetic industry, which included working with Elizabeth Taylor as a member of the team that developed the marketing and sales plans for Taylor’s internationally distributed fragrances. Da Cajn Critter began as an idea for a cookbook that evolved into so much more. Reading it is like sitting down in a comfortable chair in the family den and becoming a member of the family. The Critter was born out of childhood memories, juggling family, career, traveling, and finding a way to enjoy her personal life.

    Fantastic Cookbook

    As far as cookbooks go I have to tell you that this is one of the easiest to use and doesn't take itself too seriously. There are recipes for everything from a basic Grilled Cheese Sandwich to Grilled Italian Beef a la Sonoma. You will everything from great soups like Oyster Artichoke Soup to a hearty meals that makes my mouth water, Crawfish Boil anyone?


    Before I get to the two recipes that I will post about I will tell you a little more about what I liked about this book. I will give you the author's own words to describe what I feel was the whole feel of the book, "This cookbook isn't just favorite recipes with a catchy title. It is actually a way of life for someone who wants to eat good food, be with real people, and make cooking simple and easy so you actually WANT to cook. It's about breaking the rules and making cooking fun again."


    I agree with everything she said. The recipes in this book are those that seem familiar to me because this is the down home good food that I grew up with. There is nothing in here that is overly hard to make or requires expensive ingredients to cook with. This is what I want to feed my son and I would recommend this book to everyone who wants to enjoy time in the kitchen again. By the way, this is the first place I learned how to tell how fresh bread was in the grocery store. For those of you who are like me and didn't already know I'll let you in on the secret. Bread is delivered to stores five days of the week and the color of the tie tells you what day it was delivered on. Blue is Monday, Green is Tuesday, Red is Thursday, White is Friday, and Yellow is Saturday. It's ingenious and I feel rather silly for never noticing the color difference before.

    You'll Love this Food!

    I visit New Orleans a couple of times a year, but I live in New York. This book really brings that fantastic Cajun flavor right into my kitchen and even better right into my belly. One of the great things about this book is the way that it is bound, so that you can lay it flat while you're cooking. I love this book and I love the food even more!
