I am pleased to welcome the latest blogger to become a Dream Big Partner: Nomenom-Cajun Home Cooking
Here is an excerpt from Nomenom’s About page:
“Nom nom” is an exclamation or noun used to express pleasure at eating, or at the prospect of eating, delicious food. I cannot find a definition for nomenom and it seems to be a local way of saying nom nom. My definition of nomenom is the actual food that is delicious or is pleasurable to eat.
I will be cooking for my family and writing about it at the same time. I love to cook, and there are so many food blogs out there, but I have yet to see one that captures real life. What I mean is that I never have all of the ingredients in a recipe, in my kitchen. I intend to write about our actual life, day to day and tell how I decide what’s for dinner. We seldom have the money for all of the fancy spices or exotic vegetables in some recipes. We try to buy the least expensive items, and I try to make meals that result in leftovers for another day or so.
Funnily enough, this is the reason Cajun cuisine is what it is. Cajun people were generally a poor people. Meals were prepared with the cheapest ingredients and ‘stretched’ by adding water or rice.
I’m not trying to impress anyone by cooking elaborate dishes, and sometimes I find it hard to make my finished meals look pretty on a plate. I may not use a recipe or have precise measurements. After cooking for 20 plus years, I usually ‘spitball’ the amounts of the ingredients in my cooking. So, I will try to nail down the measurements, but if I don’t put one in the ‘WHAT YOU WILL NEED’ section, that’s why.
If there are any questions or feedback on a tried recipe, please feel free to Contact me!!
