What’s the difference between Cajun and Creole? The differences are subtle and few, but there is a definite distinction between the two. Simply put, Cajun is the food of the common people, Creole is somewhat more elevated in it’s preparation and presentation. Jambalaya is nothing if not a food of the people – simple to throw together, no advance skills necessary, and VERY tasty!
Today Country Gourmet Home is offering the Rajun Cajun Jambalaya as their “Deal Of The Day” product.

The first brownie ever made, like other culinary mishaps (the sandwich, pizza, potato chip) was actually a mistake. The baker didn’t have baking powder and ended up with an unleavened fudgy treat.
The first brownie recipe was found in a Sears, Roebuck & Co. Catalogue in the 1800’s. Sears’ last general merchandise catalogue was published in 1993.
The world’s largest brownie was made in 2001. It weighed in at 3,000 lbs. and was made with 750 lbs. of chocolate chips, 500 lbs. of butter, 850 lbs of sugar, 500 lbs. of flour and 3,500 eggs!
The first brownie made was not actually a brownie at all. It was a tasty treat sweetened with molasses that we now know as a blondie.
The brownie has its roots in America. However, similar bar cookies and squares can be found internationally, including baklava in the Middle East, nanaimo bars from Canada and tray bakes from the UK.
There are two types of brownies: fudgy and cake-like. Fudgy tops the preference list of most consumers.
Although its origin may be shrouded in mystery, its name is not, which is clearly derived from its brown color.
Brownie points in modern usage are a hypothetical social currency, which can be accrued by doing good deeds or earning favor in the eyes of another- often one’s superior. The origin of the term is unclear.
Although cannabis is the most controversial brownie mix-in, walnut remains the most popular and legal.
Typically served as a dessert, brownies can be enjoyed for breakfast or a mid-afternoon snack!
Unbuttered popcorn is a great low-fat snack and can be flavored many ways. Salt and vinegar is a popular flavoring for home-popped popcorn. The idea for flavoring popcorn this way came from traditionalal British salt and vinegar potato chips. Salt and vinegar flavoring can be used on popcorn, chips, french fries or just about any other snack.
