DIY Cajun Spice Mix

Helloooooo wonderful readers!
It's been an awfully long while, hasn't it?
I hope you haven't badmouthed me much for all the time I have been absent!

I cherish you lots!
And I would really like to express my deep appreciation and say a big thank you for being regular, awe-inspiring readers and blog followers!

On my side, things over the past month have been quite hectic!
I got in and out of a job that wasn't meant for me! But have met amazing people over that brief time!

I second the quote that says people never forget how others made them feel!
It's unbelievable, is it not? How you can connect with random people in the space of no time!
To the team of Marquem Image, I'll always remember you!

And, and, and..............!

Guess what?!!
While leaving, I promised to bake a Forêt Noire on their names!
So you better be around the corner or you will miss out on yummy chocolate goodie!!
hiiihii, it's a chocolate threat!!

Today's recipe is about a spice mix called Cajun! Pronounced as K-June!
I've been hearing that word from a friend for a decade (I mean it!) until I decided to make it a recipe for myself!

I always say, why BUY when you can DIY!

Of course, if you prefer junkie, stale, over-processed food, go ahead for the store-bought ones!!!
I'm just teasing you!
I will totally understand your choice! It's yours!
The thing is I had already been using homemade cajun spice mix, when I found it on the small bottled spice shelf in Shoprite! (I'm an Intermart regular, don't blame me!)

This recipe is a very basic, easy, and quick one!
I totally recommend it, it goes well with seafood, chicken, pork, sausages, you name it!
You can always add other spices, like cumin powder, coriander powder, mustard seeds..the list is endless!

Have a go at it, and let me know your thoughts!
