  • Accidently found this wonderful site while looking for crockpot red beans & rice recipe....that was an hour ago. I married into the Cajun Heritage and 30 years later I consider myself a "North Louisiana Cajun" I learned from my mother-in-law...after 5 long distance phone calls I had made my first pot of chicken gumbo and I end the story with "God Bless my husband...he ate it." Thank you for you website, I always want to learn more.

  • I found your site after a lot of annoyance looking through the big beautiful cookbook of a famous "Cajun chef". I want recipes that my Grandma REALLY cooked without ingredients that she would NEVER have put in. I don't mind a few modern twists now and then, but don't pass it off as the real thing.

I have been cooking Cajun food for about ten years and consider myself a Certified Coon Ass. I had lost my Courtbouillion recipe from Paw Paw's while living in California for a while. I used to travel from Texas City to Lake Charles just to eat at Paw Paw's for lunch or dinner. Thanks Sara for providing it to me again. Thanks again for a great website.

Sure has grown since I last read comments. Impressed to see some of my old recipes have been hit on so much, hope someone has found joy & good eating from using them! Looking forward to hearing from you again. Take care. Love ya, Bert

  • Love your website and would like to tell people about a new Cajun spice called "Devin's Kickass Cajun Seasoning" created by Devin Devasquez. Devin is originally from Louisianna and made it big through Star Search and Playboy. Her spice is like no other I have tasted and I use it on everything. It is KICKASS like the name of the product says. You can find it at www.devronn.com

  • Your recipes are very delicious and entertaining for a small group or large. I like the fact that recipes can be adjusted. I cook large amounts up to 250. Is it possible to have the ingredients scaled by using pounds instead of single items i.e., 100 chicken breasts / 30#'s ect...? I reference Real Cajun often lol.
    - Charlie Hilton, Clarksville, Arkansas
  • I was looking for a boudin ball recipe and happened upon your site. I'd just like to say that I think this is one of the finest sites I've ever visited and that I will be returning to it again. I have lived many places out west, but I am originally from here and I was amazed at how many restaurants bastardize great cajun food and try to pass it off as "real, authentic cajun cuisine". You can't just coat something in cayenne, burn it and call it an authentic blackened dish. Keep up the fantastic work and WELCOME HOME!!!!!

  • What a surprise to find this cookbook on line this morning. I ws looking for a roast beef recipe for a slow cooker. I just got off a 12 hour shift and feel like waking up to a good smell this afternoon. I used to live in Kaplan 20+ years ago. I picked a recipe by a Alberta Bert LeBlanc (from Kaplan). I used to work in Kaplan with an Alberta, could it possibly be the same person??? Anyway, I've got to go and get the pot roast on. Thanks for this guestbook section...it was a blast from the past for me! Ann Creston, Nebraska

  • I moved to Alaska from Slaughter, Louisiana. Now I have a column in our hometown paper called "The Cajun Queen", bringing recipe's to the north. While in Gonzales, La., I won the Jambalaya contest two times and retired as the "Cajun Queen", this is how my column started. I was working as an OR nurse at Gonzales Hospital.

  • I moved to Savannah, Georgia after Hurricane Katrina and miss the food dearly! Thank god for this website with real recipes from back home!
