Hola, from the land of the living! It's been radio silence on my end lately, and for that I apologize. I've been busy with work, and most importantly--I TOOK A VACATION! A mini-vacation, but hey, it still counts. Rob and I hit the road and snuck to the Land of Enchantment for a few days… Continue reading Cajun Shrimp Caesar Salad
It's the rainy, lazy, napfest days of March. Weather like this makes me not want to do a darn thing. I guess I still need to get ready for work, though...

I don't know about y'all, but my family always has a specific meal for New Year's Day. It's a tradition and it's supposed to bring you… Continue reading Shrimp and Greens Stew
Gumbo made easy by making it in the crockpot. Use chicken, shrimp and sausage to add extra flavor to the Cajun-tomato broth!
It's officially fall, y'all! Granted, my fall decor has been up since the beginning of August. What can I say? I love fall. I've been adding more fall decor here and there, including this spark of craftiness I had yesterday... Rob and I spent a lot of the day cleaning our house and going through… Continue reading Creamy Cajun Chicken Spaghetti Squash
