My Inspiration . . .

I've always had a love for baking, but it wasn't until I was in college that I had a desire to learn how to cook. In 2009, I decided to start my own cooking blog so I could access my recipes from anywhere, and was born.

I love trying new recipes and finding ways to make them healthier & happier on the hips! I love everything about food: the taste, the smells, the presentation, the experimenting, etc. I love to entertain, so I figured this was a great way to bring people together. Hope you enjoy trying out some of the recipes. Happy cooking!

Homemade Cajun Seasoning

{ Prep Time: 5 mins / Difficulty: Easy! }

This recipe looks almost identical to the taco seasoning recipe I posted, so I decided not to post the photograph . . . but it's definitely blog-worthy! It's pretty darn spicy - which is how it's supposed to be I believe. However, if you're a sissy like me, I'd ease up on the cayenne pepper just a bit. You can always add more if you want to spice it up.


2 tsp salt
2 tsp garlic powder
2 1/2 tsp paprika
1 tsp ground black pepper
1 tsp onion powder
1 tsp cayenne pepper
1 1/4 tsp dried oregano
1 1/4 tsp dried thyme
1/2 tsp red pepper flakes (optional)

1. Mix all the spices together in a small bowl (with a lid, so you can shake it up and not cover your entire kitchen with cajun seasoning!) Sometimes, I double (or triple) the recipe and store the extra in a small baggie with the rest of my spices so it's handy. It all depends on how often you plan to use this seasoning.
