My family and I lived in the New Orleans area for years on the North Shore. The time we lived in New Orleans includes when Hurricane Katrina hit. Katrina was not a good experience but OH, HOW we enjoyed the food. Cajun food is full of flavor and terrific. It is what I crave a love to eat the more often than any other food. While living in the New Orleans area, my goal was to try as many Cajun restaurants as possible. My goal was to learn to create each Cajun recipe at home.

Easy Skillet Recipes
If you are like most families leading super busy lives, you probably rely a lot on fast food or pizza delivery for dinner. You already know eating this way is unhealthy and can get expensive but you have little energy and no time to prepare a meal. Many people give up on ever having a sit-down home cooked meal with their families around a table.
You do not have to have a gourmet kitchen, lots of money nor tons of time to accomplish a homemade meal with your family. Easy skillet recipes are perfect for a quick and easy weeknight meal.
One Dish recipes require less clean up since everything including the pasta, and a vegetable is cooked in the same skillet or pot. And… Who does not LOVE pasta? It is perfect for any age. It is also ideal for a crowd because pasta is inexpensive.
