Cajun Holiday Favorites

It's that time of the year again for Christmas and New Year's parties and festivities and I wanted to share a few of my family's favorite holiday party recipes. I like to have an assortment of family party favorites served in a casual buffet style and let guests help themselves whenever they choose.  They are perfect for all of your parties and gatherings and will fit in nicely at your New Year's celebration, too. All are sinfully delicious and guaranteed to please your family and friends. Why not start the party off right with a round of delicious drinks. Cheers and Bon Appetit!
