Start in the kitchen with a recipe for jambalaya, a rice dish made "with a little bit of this and a little bit of that." Each of the stories in de Las Casas's collection spices that pot. Listeners will take pleasure in recognizing familiar stories, told by the author with a Louisiana flavor. Ma Farmer's sweet potatoes are grown with special care and to a special size. What creature will eat a cornbread boy spiced with cayenne pepper? Brer Fox and Brer Rabbit continue to trick each other in the peanut patch. Talking eggs that know the power of love and mysterious Jean Laffite round out the collection. Dianne de Las Casas narrates with a clear and sincere voice. Refrains, songs, and sound effects embellish her storytelling. Southern style music adds its own spice. A.R. (c) AudioFile 2004, Portland, Maine [Published: JUN/ JUL 04]
