Cajun Recipe Of The Month

This page is dedicated to my late (father) & grandmother who’s favorite thing to do was to cook or make “snacks” for anyone and everyone that came to visit. Even though she’s been gone for several years now, every now and then I sense the aroma of some of her cooking drifting through the house, and for a split second I get the sensation that she’s in the kitchen just “putting something together” as she use to say.


motherPatti S. (A very dear friend), my late dad Bert Frilot,  and my late grandmother Rhea Frilot  while out at Gilley’s Club  for a little “entertainment”. Boy, do I miss them!


This recipe comes from my late grandmother’s collection. Dad discovered a styrofoam ice chest filled with years of yellowed note paper, all hand written by her and her friends. Needless to say, for me, this was like discovering a treasure chest. These were recipes she and her friends shared over the years. I’d like to share this one with you.
