My Cajun Favs

Thanks for all the love yesterday. Still working on this balance... but we had a fun night - even after my meeting, we crashed the playground and took an extra long time in the tub for some water fun! Also, the hubs will be home late tonight, so I'm looking forward to breakfast with the fam.

Today I thought it would be fun to share my favorite cajun goodies. My grandmother is from New Orleans... hints my mommas accent, dark tan and cooking skills. We didn't necessarily grow up on all cajun cooking, but I can certainly say that I'm picky when it comes to jambalaya, étouffée, gumbo or a shrimp boil. My mom has forever spoiled us. So, what are our favorites?

Swamp Fire - the only thing we use for shrimp boils. It's got some kick!

Zapp's - Voodoo are my fav! I will eat the whole bag in one sitting - no kidding.

Essence - The only spice we use on chicken and fish.

Woeber's Sweet and Spicy Mustard - a new fav! OK, it's not really cajun... shhh! But it's spicy and sweet, and seriously, the best sandwich mustard ever.

During our family beach trip we took a trip to Rouses - a new cajun grocer that has moved to town. We were in heaven! Are you a cajun fan? What are your favs?


  1. Whattttt?!! I've never heard of any of this stuff! The only thing I know is Old Bay! ;)
