Roasted Red Pepper & Jalapeno Cheese Spread pimento cheese recipe

Roasted Red Pepper & Jalapeno Cheddar Spread

A few months ago, this little recipe from Bon Appetit caught my eye. They called it Roasted Jalapeno Pimiento Cheese Toasts, but since there is absolutely no Pimiento in the recipe, I changed up the name. I thought this would be a perfect whip together no-brainer recipe for a Holiday buffet or pre-dinner appetizer.

Home-Made Cajun Spice Blend

Cajun Spice Blend

Are you a lover of Cajun food? I am. I love Cajun Spices and Seasonings and this is my favorite Cajun Spice Blend. It’s a little spicy, yes, but Cajun Spice Blend has so many different layers of flavor. It’s not just all about the heat.

Dark or Red Roux

Dark or Red Roux

A dark or Red Roux (pronounced roo) is what gives my Jambalaya, below (as well as many other classic Cajun, Creole or Louisiana dishes) their distinctive & indescribable flavor. Try this recipe with caution if you’ve never made a roux. The rich, almost nutty flavor will haunt you to the rest of your days and once you’ve had a great roux in a dish…well, there’s no going back.
