Nola Inspired Cajun Dinner

New Orleans is one of my favorite places in this beautiful world. From the jazz, the southern hospitality, the swamp, the cocktails….I love everything about New Orleans!!! What do I love the most? The food!!! If you haven’t been to Nola you should book a ticket now because it is truly a magical place. Now that fall is finally here, I am starting to cook foods that warm my soul.
