About me

I'm a Cajun gal who grew up on the Vermilion Bayou in South Louisiana. I learned everything that I know about cooking from my Cajun mother, grandmother, and aunts. Many of the recipes that I will share have been handed down for several generations and are authentic Cajun and Creole creations.

    Hi Marguerite,

    I've been following you since 2011 and have enjoyed your recipes. A quick question if I might, my wife and I are taking a short vacation to New Orleans and Lafayette (actually Arnaudville) and was wondering if you have any suggestions for good places to eat? We're looking for good local spots or street food rather than high end places.
    Thanks in advance, Patrick

      Hi Marguerite:
      Thanks for following me. In browsing your posts and looking at your blog you have some wonderful dishes I am anxious to try. You have done a great job in presenting dishes and information on the blog site. That Father's Day cheesecake looks and sounds absolutely decadent. I look forward to seeing more posts. Cajun dishes are welcome at our house. Thanks for sharing!
      Best Regards,

          I'm in Georgia but grew up in the Arklatex (all three states). For me, Layfaette is the center of cajun cooking. My dad was a caterer in Houma. I'm looking forward to following your recipes.
