Welcome to Simple Fare, Fairly Simple. This is a place for me to post recipes of all kinds...along with other miscellaneous fodder from my so-called life here in the south. Who knows what you will find here. Could be anything from my husband...known as IT Guy...to my kids and beautiful grandbabies that are growing up way too fast right before my eyes. But...mostly this will be a place for food. I hope you'll see something you like and if you decide to try something from the list...leave me a comment and let me know!

Homemade Cajun Seasoning

I went to make a new recipe the other day and I needed some cajun seasoning. Imagine my horror....okay, annoyance....when I went to my spice cabinet and realized I was OUT! I ran to the grocery store to grab some real quick and of course...they were OUT! Then I had one of those “DOH!” moments when I thought...make your own, you crazy person! So here we go. Homemade cajun seasoning...so none of us will ever run out again.

Homemade Cajun Seasoning
3 tablespoons smoked paprika ~ can use regular
1 tablespoon salt
3 tablespoons garlic powder
1 tablespoon pepper
3 tablespoons onion powder
1 -2 tablespoon cayenne pepper (depending on your heat index) ;-)
