Homemade cajun seasoning

Cajun seasoning from eat good 4 life
Happy new year to all of my family, friends and followers. It has been a really hectic couple of days but I am really glad to be back home :-)

Do you have any new year’s resolution goals? I have a few, and lets see if I can stick to them. So far so good!!

I have been wanting to make Cajun seasoning for the longest time and I really don’t know why I waited so long. I have seen many different variations so for now I just stuck with a basic one. Next time around I may add some coriander and cumin powder to see how it tastes.

I will be using this seasoning for rice, chicken, fish, pasta etc. I most likely will have a rice dish using this spice in the next couple of weeks. We eat a lot of rice dishes in my house so changing it up a bit with this home made Cajun seasoning sure it would be good.

Anyhow, I hope everyone had a great holiday season with family and friends.

Enjoy!!

I got this little spice containers a while back from Ikea. Now I am glad I can use them!

  1. Do you think I can spread it on the bread? A delicious medicine ;-))

  2. wow.. i wonder what is doing the trick in this… ginger is definitely a remedy. In the Indian culture, we make a lot of Ginger Tea which helps soothe cold symtoms.

  3. Oh no. I think that’d make my tummy upset. But you know what, it’s always upset so who knows? :) I might just try it. I always get sick and I’m tired of it. If someone on the train sneezes near me, it’s almost guaranteed I’ll be sick two days later. Really annoying!

  4. I think I need to make a batch of this :( We’ve been so sick this year, I think because my son just started school. Spring can’t come fast enough so we can all get some vitamin D :)

  5. Ginger produces a hot, fragrant kitchen spice.[5] Young ginger rhizomes are juicy and fleshy with a very mild taste. They are often pickled in vinegar or sherry as a snack or just cooked as an ingredient in many dishes. They can also be steeped in boiling water to make ginger tea, to which honey is often added; sliced orange or lemon fruit may also be added. Ginger can also be made into candy, or ginger wine which has been made commercially since 1740.’
