Expert Tips

Have a Cajun party! Play New Orleans jazz music, and serve Cajun Chicken sprinkled with toasted pecans. Or serve with simple red beans and rice.

No Cajun seasoning on hand? Experiment with other blends and herbs, such as Italian blends, thyme or even chili powder.

Crush cereal by placing it in a plastic bag or between sheets of waxed paper and crushing with a rolling pin or a small pot. Speed through the process with a blender or food processor if available.
