As a cajun girl myself, i feel alot of people don’t understand.
Cajun food is not all about the hot n’ spicy, it’s comfort food. It’s momma’s cooking. It’s a fusion between creole, country, and french, and it’s delicious.
Let’s face it, sometimes we just can’t slave away in a kitchen for hours like momma does. That’s why crockpots were invented. Right?!
