Chance Meetings and Cajun Catfish

At a Grammy’s after party, hubby and I had the pleasure of meeting and chatting it up with John Legend. I introduced myself as ‘a blogger’ and rather than giving me the side eye or the requisite blank stare, he smiled and said, ‘my fiance’s a blogger too!’. As the drinks flowed and music blared, the convo eventually turned to they’re pending nuptials, long term relationship musings and of course, we bragged about and showed him pictures of our beloved Boogie.

When I returned to PA, I googled his fiance, Chrissy Teigen’s blog, and loved everything about it. So Delushious is brimming with hilarious, well told stories, pics and FOOD!  Homegirl’s a serious foodie and her recipe highlights are the bestest.  
 Case in point, here’s a recipe she shared from
Baked Cajun Catfish 

  • 2 tablespoons canola oil
  • 2 teaspoons garlic salt
  • 2 teaspoons dried thyme
  • 2 teaspoons paprika
  • 1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon hot pepper sauce
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 4 (8 ounce) fillets catfish
  1. In a small bowl, combine the first seven ingredients; brush over both sides of fish.
  2. Place fish in a 13-in. x 9-in. x 2-in. baking dish coated with
    nonstick cooking spray. Bake at 450 degrees F for 10-13 minutes or until
    fish flakes easily with a fork.
I tried it tonight and served it with sauteed kale and spinach, plated on the finest styrofoam.

It was quick, easy and chock full of smoky deliciousness.  I’ll definitely be revisiting this one very soon, next time with a little less garlic salt. Thanks Chrissy!

In other random news, and a part of the reason I felt so inclined to cook, Aunty, aka Boogie’s God Momma is in town to help us move!  Peep that henna red 🙂
