Hello Y'all! I live in Kentucky near the "gateway to the mountains" where my husband was born and raised. I myself am from Mississippi. Growing up we had great times going to New Orleans, Baton Rouge, Gulfport, Biloxi, and various places in the Southern part of Alabama. I have family in all these places. So, it's no wonder that I am a sucker for cajun/creole dishes.
Here in KY, not many of my husbands relitives and friends have ever had cajun/creole fare. But now they make sure that I let them know when I'm gonna cook up some good ol'gumbo, jambalaya, dirty rice, or such. But they still won't eat a crawfish. My husband said that he used to play with those things (he calls them crawdads) when he was a boy and never concidered ever eating them. He still kinda gets grossed out when I "pinch de tail and suck de head" (the proper way to eat a crawfish at a crawfish boil). Gosh I miss those. You won't find anybody throwin a crawfish boil here in this part of Ken-tuck.
Anyway, I really miss my South...but I love my Kentucky, too. I am learning how to cook the foods my hubby grew up on from his mother, but bless his heart, he'll eat anything I throw together. He's a brave man.
Anyway, I'm a mother of 2, a 13 year old and a 3 year old. We have 2 dogs (Mastiffs) named Bozak (Beaux Zachary Bleu Tear) and Mercedez (Pain's Little Maugui)who both refuse to give us puppies. We also have 2 cats, Thunder and her son Spooky. And 2 rabbits named Peanut and Cinnamon.
Welp, that's about it.
Cajun is my main tastbud squeeze, yet I love to try new things from all cultures.
