Lousiana Seafood Gumbo ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #gumbo #recipe

Adapted from Emeril’s Classic Seafood Gumbo Made with ingredients readily available to land-lubbers everywhere, this classic southern seafood gumbo will transport your taste buds to Louisiana. When my sister and I went to New Orleans last year, one of my culinary goals on the trip was to have some good gumbo. I tasted three different gumbos […]

Spicy Mango Passionfruit Hurricane ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #MardiGras #Cocktail #Recipe

This New Orleans favorite cocktail, the Hurricane, is perfect for Mardi Gras (or anytime you want a little fruity rum concoction) … I put my own little twist on it by using Old New Orleans Cajun Spice Rum and adding some mango juice and just a little pinch of cayenne pepper.

Named […]


Creamy Creole Chicken Zoodles

Adapted from Texanerin Baking You know those rich, decadent cajun cream fettuccine dishes that they serve at Italian restaurants? This dish tastes JUST like that.

I’ve always loved cajun and […]


Creole Chicken & Sausage Skillet

Creole Chicken & Sausage Skillet ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #creole #stirfry #dinner #recipe

An easy, spicy skillet dish you can cook up quickly when you’re in the mood for some good hot creole home cooking. It started from our Mr. Rife Chicken recipe … my kids love me to make Mr. Rife Chicken for them, but then they only eat the chicken and I am left with the rest […]


Shrimp & Andouille Quinoa Jambalaya

Shrimp & Andouille Quinoa Jambalaya ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #Cajun #MardiGras #recipe

Adapted from my good friend Sonali, The Foodie Physician. It’s Mardi Gras time and my mind turns to Jambalaya! Oh yes, there’s gumbo and Red Beans and Rice (which I love as well), but I just always dream of Jambalaya and beads, tall red hurricane drinks and pretty masks whenever I hear Mardi Gras or New […]
