This is actually the recipe that Jill Kelley and her twin sister Natalie cooked on Food Fight:

Spicy Middle Eastern Alligator with Rice Pilaf and Tabbouleh


Just in case you wanted to serve it at your next military bash

    Very funny... I say let sleeping alligators lie. (Is that a smile I see on it's face?)

      Yes, lying seems to be a key ingredient to the success of the dish.

      Can you recommend some local sources for fresh alligator fillets? I hear they've been found in some local ponds - albeit probably freed pets.

        Be careful what you wish for (or your alligator recipe will be recorded for posterity) & watch your emails...

          Actually, DC is probably the one place where they don't give a care. While this is big news, we don't really give much of a fig about the woman in the story other than the fact she exists. The recipe for dealing with the political fallout is the recipe that everyone her in DC wants so they can adapt it for their own personal taste (or need).
