Cooking Tips:

Cajun Trinity: You may have come across recipes calling for this, and wonder what it is. It’s simply three ingredients used to start many Cajun dishes; bell pepper, onions, and celery. These give dishes a wonderful flavor and aroma.

Making a roux: Making a roux is time-consuming and needs to be watched carefully! It can burn easily, so stir often. If it burns, you have to throw it out and start all over again.

Enjoy!
