Cajun Cooking and Louisiana Comfort Food


Down home Southern cooking consists of a truly unique blend of French- Canadian, African, English and Native American prepared dishes.

No stranger to Southern comfort food, Louisiana is known for its Cajun cooking, where everything from Crawfish Etouffee to Seafood Gumbo, Jambalaya and Red Beans and Rice are often enjoyed.

    Dear Beryl,

    Thank you so much! I absolutely love your Crabmeat Au Gratin recipe. Every time I make it, I load up the video of your showing how to make it onto my computer and put it right on the kitchen counter and follow each step. You are delightful and it just makes my day.

    Take care,

  5. Spencer says:

    Great post! I love Cajun food, only can you recommend something that isn’t very spicy?

  6. Beryl says:

    A lot of people that are not from Louisiana confuse “spicy” with “hot”. Real Cajun food is spicy, in other words rich in flavor from a variety of spices, but not “hot” like in jalapeno peppers.

  7. Ron says:

    I just watched a video where you made a potato soup and you also added crab meat to it but I can’t find the recipe on your web site. I would like to get a copy of the recipe. Enjoy your video’s and like your simple approach to cooking. You make every thing seem easy

  8. Trey Hill says:

    WOW! Those were the best spinach enchiladas I have ever had. That sour cream sauce was excellent. I added a a little sea salt and white pepper to it to taste. Keep up the great work.

  9. Beryl says:

    Thanks, Trey!

    I love white pepper, and add it to lots of dishes that Beryl makes, especially those with sauces.

  10. Do you add creole seasoning into your potato salad or just sprinkle on top?

  11. Beryl says:

    Hi Debbie,

    We add it into the potato salad.


  12. Carol says:

    I enjoy your videos very much! I would love to see you do one on your homemade beef stock.

  13. Beryl says:

    Hi Carol,

    Thank you for your suggestion. We have made homemade beef stock before and do need to do it again and make a video. We’ll try to do it soon.

    Thank you for watching our videos!

    Beryl and Mike

    potato salad sounds delicious, but what do you do with the bayleaf? thanks

  15. Beryl says:

    Hi Shirley,

    I think we just put the bay leaf in the water to help season the potatoes while they’re boiling.

    Thanks for watching checking out our Cajun recipes and for writing us!
