First, Make a Roux! is a blog about a lifelong love affair with cooking and entertaining in the Southern Louisiana way. It's about reaching into the traditions of my past for inspiration in the future.
This blog is written by me, Make A. Roux. I grew up in very small town in rural South Louisiana. It's the kind of town where the families are large and everyone knows everyone else, along with everyone else's business. ;) As a kid, I loved my rural life, but dreamt of living in a big city when I grew up.
As an adult, I followed that dream, picking up a wonderful husband (and my biggest supporter) along the way. Now that I live in a big city in California, I miss the simpler, easier times I had as a kid. This blog is a tribute to those times, to my family, and to all that is steeped in Cajun and German Coast culture.
If you're wondering why I have an alias, it's because I like my privacy and also because I like being thought of as another one of those larger-than-life Southern characters. However, that doesn't mean you can't contact me to give feedback, to ask for recipes, or to inquire about having your product reviewed.

L'aissez les bon temps rouler, chere!
