Cajun Seasoning

Cajun Seasoning
Homemade seasonings or spice blends are super easy to make and if you use them frequently, they are cheaper and you know exactly what goes into them. A seasoning that I use a lot is a Cajun or Creole seasoning and when I make my own I get to control the amount of salt in it which is important since a lot of store bought blends have a TON of salt. Canjun or Creole style seasonings typically consist of the following spices: paprika, thyme, oregano, onion powder, garlic powder, salt, pepper and cayenne. With the spicy heat provided by the cayenne in this mix it's also nice to be able to control that to make it as hot or mild as you desire! Another nice thing about homemade spice blends are that they make for great gifts for the holidays so that you can give the gift of flavour!
