Sorry for the Delay

I’ll have the recipe up soon, an unexpected health concern came up. It’s being handled today. I should be able to to post up the cookies tonight. I wanted to update everyone, though. I’m still here.

Cookies in the morning!

It’s late, and I’ve been up all night baking, so I’ll post the recipe and instructions tomorrow as soon as I get up. Here’s how they look though, at least the first batch!

By the way, if you google the name of my blog, and find a cookbook, that’s not me. That’s someone from another part of Louisiana that’s not exactly a Cajun area and who doesn’t have a good grasp of intellectual property laws. I’m already in touch with an attorney. I’m more annoyed by the misrepresentation of the name of my blog than anything else. I’ve lived my entire life in Acadiana, and over half of it in the beating heart of Cajun Country – Lafayette. I do not like the food I pour my heart and soul into creating being misrepresented by a self-published cookbook out of the town known for housing the headquarters of the KKK in Louisiana.

I will not stand for this.

Contamination in the Kitchen

The promised cookies are coming very soon – in about an hour or two – but first, I have to finish cleaning the kitchen. Y’all, wow. I’ve had gluten-free kitchens since my diagnosis in late 2011. My boyfriend, however, is still learning this. He’s still hanging onto to one contaminated cast-iron pan before I move all of my pans in, and then his gets re-seasoned so it doesn’t get confused for mine of the same size.

Thanksgiving

Sorry I didn’t give y’all a holiday update. I spent Thanksgiving with my boyfriend’s family -yes, boyfriend, one of many life changes was a divorce. They made sure the turkey was gluten free, which honestly, isn’t difficult at all. The honey ham was too. That was great of them to check, my daughter loves ham way more than turkey. I didn’t want to ask more than that of them the first big holiday I spend around them, so I brought a few dishes myself.

I’m Back, y’all!

Ok, so I disappeared for…a few years. Sorry about that. Health issues up and down, personal life upheavals. I’m still cooking, still coming up with new recipes, and I’m continuing the family cookbook my mom was working on – bless her soul.

Not only that, but I’m making a gluten-free version of it. A mix of family recipes, spanning from classic Cajun staples and comfort foods, to nearly every Creole dish you’d find in an upscale restaurant in New Orleans, to traditional southern desserts and holiday treats. If I can get it done within a year, I may try to get it published. One little snag though – *someone* nosed around and published a rather empty blog using nearly the same name as mine to promote an…uninspired cookbook.

Sorry the blog name was already taken, cher. I guess I’ll just have to come up with a better name when I publish my cookbook, me.

 

There ain’t even a damn bayou in Denham.
