Cooking Tips:

Cajun Trinity: You may have come across recipes calling for this, and wonder what it is. It’s simply three ingredients used to start many Cajun dishes ; bell pepper, onions, and celery. These give dishes a wonderful flavor and aroma.

Making a roux: Making a roux is time consuming and needs to be watched carefully! It can burn easily, so stir often. If it burns, you have to throw it out and start all over again.
