Who would have thought that the ever expanding Landry’s Inc.Chairman, President and CEO, Tilman J. Fertitta, got his feet wet in the hospitality business with his first restaurant in Katy, Texas?
Landry’s Inc. now boasts over 300 venues that include hospitality, restaurants, gaming and entertainment. They just recently added to their portfolio Morton’s The Steakhouse, McCormick & Schmick’s Seafood and Steaks, Bubba Gump’s Shrimp Company, and the Golden Nugget in Las Vegas. They also acquired the Galveston Island Historic Pleasure Pier and will be turning it into an amusement park, which is scheduled to open during the Summer of 2012.
Landry’s Seafood located at 22215 Katy Freeway in Katy, Texas first opened its doors in 1947. They feature fresh seafood, and is especially known for their shrimp dishes and crawfish etouffee. Landry’s also has a full service bar and a variety of wonderful non-seafood items on the menu. I ate there for the first time 20 years ago, on my first visit to Katy. It still remains a great place for a delicious meal!
I finally decided to try it out, and bought the two-pack on Amazon. I have read that along with some health benefits, coconut oil can be used as a moisturizer or even in your hair. I love the smell of coconut, and this particular brand seems to get very good reviews (Nutiva’s Cold-Pressed, Organic Extra-Virgin Coconut Oil). No, they’re not paying me.
While I generally try to fry foods as little as possible, this oil is a fun alternative to my good old standby, olive oil. It does lend a slight coconut-y flavor to foods, but was very good in a chicken-broccoli-pineapple stir fry!
I started looking for other ways to use my new ingredient and found this delightfully yummy cookie recipe!
It made about 12 large chunky, chewy (dare I say decadent) cookies.
1/2 cup coconut oil
1 1/2 cups brown sugar
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspon baking soda
1 tablespoon vanilla
1 3/4 cup flour
1 cup semisweet chocolate chips
1 cup white chocolate chips
Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
In an electric mixer, beat together coconut oil, eggs, and brown sugar until well mixed.
Add remaining ingredients, mixing together just until all are incorporated.
Use a 1/3 cup-measuring cup to form cookies on a cookie sheet.
Bake for 9-11 minutes, or just until the outside of the cookies have browned.
