The Sweet and Savory Sisters!


About the Sisters

Step inside the Wacky World of The Sister’s Cook Book!

Just wanted to say how grateful we are for the doors of opportunity–and for the friends who oil the hinges.

Good Morning to all you Grocery Lovers!

Just wanted to drop a couple of lines this morning and whisper in your ear all the fantastic shenanigans the sister’s have been up to.

You know sometime life gives you lemons and you are supposed to make lemonade. Well the sisters not only make lemonade we make lemon pie, lemon lush, lemon cake, lemon chicken, lemon meringue, lemon bars, lemon curd well you get the picture. We never do anything half-hearted we take it over the top.

We have absolutely thrown ourselves into trying to finish our cookbook and can we just say we have had a blast. This year has proven to be a world wind of anticipation, excitement and also struggles. With every struggle somehow God provided us with an opportunity. Within this year we have managed to keep up with a blog, formulate recipes, carry on with our catering, work full time jobs, take care of our families, write a cookbook, appear on the Food Network “Paula’s Best Dishes” three times, perform a speaking engagement for some wonderful women in Jasper Georgia and last but not least take our beautiful Journey back to our heritage in Louisiana. Out of all the incredible opportunities, we would have to say Our Journey was the best thing since color TV!

There is something about getting on an open road with your favorite people and laughing hysterically, acting so silly and literally eating so much that you throw-up! Sounds fun doesn’t it? We have sincerely been so blessed this year and just are so excited to finally draw a little closer to our dream.

Our cookbook will feature superb recipes from our Southern and Cajun Heritage along with our amusing stories. Writing these stories and reminiscing over our lives have been priceless. We feel that this will be a little different from your ordinary cookbook; along with having fan-freaking-tastic recipes that will leave your mouth-watering. Our stories could bear a resemblance to a comedy show. We ain’t joking, it is so darn hysterical. We are about to bust a gut to share all this goodness with all you beautiful grocery lovers. At this time we are working with a publisher and working hard to bring you the best of the best stories and recipes that will surely make you lick your lips in anticipation. Just sit tight and we will update you as soon as this masterpiece is available.

We would like to thank each and every one of you for stopping by and allowing us to share with you the little things that make us tick; from all our crazy videos to our new and exciting recipes. We hope you have enjoyed it as much as we have. Keep coming back, because We have only just begun!

Breakfast for a Cajun Princess! Thank’s to T’Jim’s!

While on our extraordinary journey through Louisiana; one of our beloved stops was visiting with all the guys from T-Jim’s Grocery and Market. When visiting our family in Marksville, LA; T-Jim’s market was a must stop every year to stock up on our Cajun groceries  All I can say is how delightful these folks are. We had such a superlative time getting to know all these beautiful people. They were just plain and simply the “Cats Pajamas”. They were so welcoming and fed us some of the best groceries we have ever flopped a lip over. We ate everything from Pain D’Toilettes (Pork Patties) to Bunny Bread sopped in cane syrup.  James (T-Jim) Moreau established the business in 1964. He and his son Jacques work their fingers to the bone. They are non-stop making the finest boudin, cracklins, fresh sausage, hogshead cheese, stuffed gogs to name a few.    

We really can’t say enough about our visit with them. We can’t wait until our video’s get edited and you get to experience all the fun we did. It was absolutely amazing!!

Amy and I bought so many great groceries from T-Jim’s, but one item in particular was just so “Get in My Belly Good”. That was the; Pain D’Toilettes (Pork Patties) which is seasoned fresh bulk sausage patties wrapped in fresh pork webbings. I am here to tell you it makes the finest gravy ever. I cooked mine this morning and severed them over our fabulous grits. It was just such a first-class breakfast. I cooked fried eggs with of course Louisiana Hot Sauce and little spring biscuits with butter and homemade cane syrup that we also purchased from T-Jim’s. It was a breakfast fit for a Cajun Princess!

On The Road to Everywhere!!

On The Road to Every Where…

As we travel upon this here open road it is utterly exhilarating. There is a slight chill in the air and dreary clouds that could convey the impression of a blue funk, but quite the contrary. To us it is extremely charming. Looking out over this admirable land and seeing all the artistry in all the farm land just makes you truly appreciate the beauty of the South.

With our windows slightly lowered and the cool breeze flowing in, listening to smooth sounds on the radio, can I tell you it doesn’t get much better than this?

We are enjoying our refreshments “Groceries” singing our songs, flapping our tongues and burning up the road to our next destination.

We have traveled this stretch of road for all of our lives going to Florida; but we have never actually took the time to observe all the quaint Mom & Pop places to stop and see! We took advantage of this opportunity to “stop and smell the roses”. We took pictures that normally just would pass us by. We met different people, stopped at a local fruit stand and bought some good ole boiled peanuts. We were just enjoying being in the moment.

We have escaped a part of our life that is “have to’s”. Today, as well as the rest of our Journey we will receive our license to do as we please.

Our next stop will be Pensacola, Florida where we will spend the evening chatting with my husband’s Grandmother Thelma and her friend Martha. Please stay tuned to hear all the great fun we have visiting with them!

Louisiana or BUST!

Well, only 14 days until The Sister’s hit the highway, a highway to a new Betty Crocker eye-opener. We are on a mission so you might want to stay off the roads and say a few prayers. We are truly about to bust our guts with anticipation to go on this expedition! Just to load up the car with all our crazy gadgets and first-class groceries is going to be a site to see.  All the untamed escapades that we have planned may just go down in history. Once we hit that “Super Slab” let me just tell you that this here voyage is going to be a rip roaring marvelous time.

We are so dedicated to bring back with us a little more knowledge, understanding, experience and awareness of all the unique people we encounter and their various cooking styles. We will go door to door in our quest to find that extraordinary technique that makes us go AHH!

So, with this being said, just stay tuned each and every day for all our photos and observations we find from the road. We promise you that it will be so worth it. Lord, I may not need to put all this “build up” in case it’s a dud! But I seriously doubt it!

Our Journey

This journey is actually a gift from God. We had wanted to take this trip for a long time. But so many times it was not feasible or something prevented us from not being able to go. Amy and I were talking about this venture and how we wished we could go and visit our grandmother and all our kin folk, how it would be such a blessing in our lives to get to spend time with all of them. Well, what do you know; Amy received a phone call the next day from her boss about a training seminar in Mobile, Al. Amy jumped at the chance to go, seeing how Mobile is just a hop, skip and a jump from Louisiana. So at that moment we began planning our venture.

This journey is going to be a way to pass on our Cajun heritage. We are extremely proud of our heritage and all that is involved in being Cajun. The plain, simple frugal life of our people, their devotion to principle, their unbounded faith in the goodness of God, their love for each other during all their misfortunes and perilous wanderings, appeal to the heart. Our people are bound so tight that nothing will separate the union of family.  Experiencing the Cajun culture is like no other. They are thrifty, hard-working, fun-loving, devout religious folk. They work and play with equal enthusiasm. The bayou life is full of dancing, food, and just a “Joy of Living”. We are so eager to experiment with different herbs, spices and ingredients to help create some of the most flavorful dishes in the World!

“Work like hell to make your money, then spend it all having a good time!”
— from Les Blank’s film “Spend It All”, Flower Films

We cannot wait to give y’all a taste of this magnificent living and what it is really like to be Cajun!

Real People, Real Food – From all walks of life…

Good Morning Grocery Lovers! Food is something we all need and have to have to survive. Some of us eat to live and some of us live to eat. Guess which one we are? The sister’s are true believers in all types of food in moderation. We do indulge in some things.

I can’t remember the last time the sisters have been this excited! The Sister’s are hitting the road in a quest to find the most interesting people to talk to about their food heritage. We will leave from Albany, GA and work our way through Florida, Alabama, Mississippi and last but not least Louisiana. We will be in 5 different states in 5 days. We are going to do all of this on a small budget and a big cooler of some good groceries. We will video this entire journey. It is so going to be some kind of GOOD.

So get ready for a bunch of excitement and enjoyment!

The Real Meaning of Christmas!

Good Morning and Merry Christmas to all! It’s that time of year again. December has come and with it all the joys of Christmas. But what is the real meaning of Christmas? Is it the gifts under the tree, the lights in the windows, the cards in the mail, turkey dinners with family and friends, snow in the yard, stockings hanging in the living room, and shouts of “Merry Christmas” to those who pass us in the streets? Is this really Christmas? I know for myself that Christmas time can be a little stressful and busy. We are all out shopping for that perfect gift for our loved ones. Just the smile on their faces when they open up that gift is just priceless. But I have chosen not to stress myself out this Christmas; instead I would like my family to focus on the real meaning of Christmas.

For many people, Christmas is a time of sorrow. They don’t have the extra money to buy presents for their children, family, and friends. Times are hard on people all over the world and it is difficult for families to provide for themselves much less buy gifts and meals for this glorious occasion. Many are saddened at Christmas time when they think of their loved ones who will not be able to come home for various reasons. Turkey dinners may be only a wish and not a reality for some. We can all help in our communities by ringing a bell for the Salvation Army, collect can goods for the homeless, volunteer at a shelter, donate a toy for the Toys for Tots.

Yet, Christmas can be a season of great joy. It is a time of God showing His great love for us. It can be a time of healing and renewed strength. You see, Christmas is when we celebrate the birth of the Christ child. God sent His Son, Jesus, into the world to be born. His birth brought great joy to the world. And continues to bring us peace and joy everyday of our lives.

Merry Christmas Everyone!

Savory Spicy Chex Mix

Good morning, Tiger Fans, and congratulations to the LSU football team – champions of the Southeastern Conference! The Tigers’ convincing 42-10 win over the Georgia Bulldogs earned LSU its 11th SEC title in school history and a trip to the Louisiana Superdome on January 9 to play for its fourth national championship. WOW! What a tremendous Saturday we had! I can’t remember the last time I had such a good time. Our mama came over to watch the LSU-GA SEC Championship game and we had an absolute ball! We ate some fine groceries. We had The Sisters Gumbo, The Almighty Sausage Balls, Mama’s Bacon Wraps, Million Dollar Pie and it was all so “GET IN MY BELLY GOOD”! I am just so proud of our Tigers; they have played so hard and have kept me enormously entertained all season. I am really sad that the season is over. But, we do have the National Championship!

 With all that being said, here is a wonderful recipe for a great Christmas appetizer. The sisters have always loved them some chex mix. With our recipe we give it a little twist. Pretzels come in all different shapes, especially during the holiday season. So try making this with the holiday shapes.

 What you need:

1/4 cup butter

1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce

1 1/4 teaspoons Slap Ya Mama Cajun Seasoning

2 to 3 teaspoons Louisiana Hot Sauce

3 cups Corn Chex® cereal

3 cups Rice Chex® cereal

3 cups Wheat Chex® cereal

1 cup mixed nuts

1 cup pretzels

1 cup bite-size cheese crackers

What to do:

Heat oven to 250°F.

In ungreased large roasting pan, melt butter in oven. Stir in Worcestershire sauce, cajun seasoning and hot sauce. Gradually stir in remaining ingredients until evenly coated.

Bake uncovered 1 hour, stirring every 15 minutes. Spread on paper towels to cool, about 15 minutes. Store in airtight container.
