I had a little trouble with my crust but it was delicious!!!!!
I have decided to start a blog to help my family and friends learn how to cook my cajun family recipes. My motivation to start this blog was my mother, who always cooked from sight, as do many great cajun cooks. My mother was diagnosed with Alzheimer disease and as a result will never again be able to share family recipes. Many people who were blessed to have tasted her dishes called her a great cook. We enjoyed her cooking, but never thought we would face the day that we couldn’t call her for directions to recreate any of the dishes she cooked. Each child having their own personal favorites. I also cook from sight, which creates problems for passing down recipes for future generations. My children, grandchildren and nieces & nephews, are my other motivation for blogging my information. They are basically forcing me to get my recipes out of my head and on to paper. A cookbook is in my future, on the bucket list for my brother and myself., so until it is mastered this will have to do. I will try my best to post many of my passions from Photography, traveling and of course recipes and cooking videos, something to mimic looking over your parent’s shoulder at the stove! I hope you enjoy my blogs and especially my cooking! Bon Appetite!
