I couldn't find the white pepper blend at Albertson's, so hopefully I can win me some!ReplyDelete
I love Slap Ya Moma. You can use Slap Ya Moma like pepper, where you have to use Tony's like salt. With Slap Ya Moma, you don't have to worry about making something too salty if you want it spicier. It's as simple as that. Anyway, I have three favorite cajun meals. The first is simply my own homemade gumbo. It's delish. The second is the duck and sausage gumbo at the Chimes. It's just the best store-bought gumbo available. The third is the Third Row Crawfish Boil, about the fourth batch or so. That's when it starts getting just about to heaven on earth to me.ReplyDelete
This is Koubi, by the way.ReplyDelete
My favorite thing about cajun food is the people that cook it. They have such passion for their cuisine and are always proud and happy to share. I like that they can "pass a good time" while cooking: jokes, dancing, laughing :)ReplyDelete
I must give a shout out to 2 of my favorite cajuns: Miss Sonja Ardoin and Nicky Speyrer
Slap Ya Mama is awesome on fried walleye! Oh yeah!!! Actually, I've liked it on everything I've tried it on so far.ReplyDelete
Everything tastes great with Slap Ya Mama seasoning....even my cooking!!! I love shrimp and okra gumbo and it is at it's best when you use Slap Ya Mama in it!!! Patricia Fontenot@ facebookReplyDelete
I am a Cajun boy from LA that's been living in rural Alaska for 4 years... How can I survive being away from home? Slap Ya Mama!! Thank You SYM--I've cooked all my favorites: etuffe, gumbo, jambalaya, sauce picante, and of course eggs & rice, but you wouldn't believe what else it's good on! Duck, geese, caribou, moose, salmon, smelt, grizzly bear, porcupine, & arctic hare, to name a few.ReplyDelete
Talk about converts!! I have to bring back half-a-dozen cans every time I visit home just to pass out to Native Alaskan friends & visiting teachers to my village.
Yum, that would make good Cajun rib-eye! I'd also toss it in my red beans and rice, gumbo, jambalaya, bean soup...ok, I guess I just love Cajun food.ReplyDelete
Aieeeeee....now dat sound like some good spice rite der charie! lolReplyDelete
Okay, now for my normal voice. I would love to try some more of the Slap Yo Mama spices. Having migrated to NC since Katrina I can tell you we need some more Cajun spice up here. Miss a lot of ingredients this way including some good ole Cajun spices.
I haven't seen SYM products in my area but I want to try some. Maybe then I can figure out why I'm not famous yet. :-)ReplyDelete
Out here in Dallas, I have to make my cajun food if I want it to be any good!ReplyDelete
Does Slap Ya Mamma go well with BBQ'd Rattlesnake?ReplyDelete
I wanna Slap Ma Mama for that reduced sugar pumpkin pie she made me. Pure nastiness it was.ReplyDelete
Anyhoo, I'd love to try some cajun fish (only ever had cajun skrimps).
I have in fact slapped my own mother because of the flavor of this special seasoning which I hold close to my heart. After said slap, the woman whom spent hours in labor giving birth to me all those years ago tasted the holy container of goodness herself and gave me a look as if to say,"I deserve atleast one more."ReplyDelete
My brother who lives in Houston LOVES this stuff and kindly bought some and sent us some. We sprinkle it on fresh avocados, on our eggs, on our meats...everywhere. The sad thing is we can't buy it here in AZ, so this would be a wonderful treat.ReplyDelete
I love cajun food and tried to cook my way through a Paul Prudhomme recipe book in the 80's. My husband was getting too fat so I stopped.ReplyDelete
Know what is my favorite Cajun meal? Chicken Sausage Gumbo with COLD potato salad on the side. Then, you gotta take a bite of the potato salad and the gumbo together! MMMMM......ReplyDelete
I hope I win so I can try this Slap Ya Mama stuff...
You can contact me via facebook or my own blog if I am the lucky winner!
Slap Ya Mama is the best! I'm a transplanted Louisianan who was given Slap Ya Mama as a gift from someone who found it in a gift shop in Missouri! I had it shipped for a while, but finally found it in a grocery store here in Oklahoma. Makes stuff so good it makes you want to "Slap Ya Mama".!ReplyDelete

it feels weird to know that i won't "accidentally" win this..ReplyDelete
I think since I live in Texas and I am your Mama that I should win some Slap Ya Mama! I love that stuff and I bet I could cook you up a gumbo with it! Love, MomReplyDelete
What I love about cajun food is having it cooked by my Louisiana native chef husband!ReplyDelete
He cooked a Turducken for Thanksgiving for our friends here in San Diego, CA using SYM and it was a HUGE hit.
We are both natives of Louisiana, living in San Diego and remain advocates of good ole cajun cooking.
My sister from Prairieville got me hooked on SYM & I have gotten a few San Diegans hooked!
I think we should win since we can't find the seasoning in California and we'll need the spices for our traditional Christmas Gumbo!

Angela Bankston here again... If I win, you can contact me via email: firstname.lastname@example.org or I'm a Slap Ya Mama fan on facebook!ReplyDelete
I'm amazed at the comments from so many people who don't live in Louisiana. Awesome! Once you've been there, Louisiana is always in your blood and heart (and stomach) no matter where you live!ReplyDelete
Honestly, I have never heard of Slap Ya Mama, I love the name and can't wait to try it. I have having a Mardi Gras Party for a friends birthday the end of Jan, would love to try these in the food I will be preparing!ReplyDelete
Living in Tallahassee, I get asked frequently if I can cook Cajun food. My response is always the same -- I am a Cajun, so EVERYTHING that I cook is Cajun food!ReplyDelete
I'll be making a turkey and sausage gumbo this weekend. C'est si bon, y'all!
This is the only time slapping your Mama is aceptable...actually, not only acceptable but recommended...."Here's to all the MAMA's who love Slap Your Mama"...it's in the name!ReplyDelete
One time.... I slapped Boo's mom.ReplyDelete
I like to put a little slap on just about everything the red is great on pasta & pizza :) Hope everyone has a Safe and Happy Holiday SeasonReplyDelete
I've got two friends that just moved to the Netherlands for work two months ago. They used Slap Ya Mama (like me) on everything! But they couldn't get it there or any other seasoning. So I went around town and got every local seasoning I could, including the largest size of every Slap Ya Mama. It cost me a fortune to ship it to them, but it was completely worth it! Now they have a little piece of home every time they cook. email@example.comReplyDelete
Slap Ya Mama is so good, I use it for toothpaste!ReplyDelete
I like Cajun/Creole food, but I'm not sure how authentic the food I've had is! It's hard to get it authentic up here in TN, but there is a place in our Farmer's Market that's supposed to make pretty authentic PoBoys and I've had one of them.ReplyDelete
I'm still pretty new to Cajun cooking, but I can't get enough of it! I didn't always like spicy food. Now when I go home to New England, I'm always disappointed by how bland everything tastes. Last year I introduced my family to "Slap Ya Mama" seasoning when I brought it home for Christmas, and now they love it too (well, my own Mama might still be on the fence... but I know my Dad loves it). I'd love to send a gift package up to Massachusetts; I hope I win one!ReplyDelete

I was thinking I'm ready for some Slap Ya Mama. I sent you some Mama Jambalaya as a bribe. Paul, is Boo's mama me? Were we in Arkansas?ReplyDelete
The best thing about Cajun Food is that it ain't boring - tryin' something new is how great things are discoveredReplyDelete
Cute name -- I'd love to try it. Shouldn't it be Slap yo mama ;0 Slap some on me.ReplyDelete
I love Cajun Food and make a few dishes. I do have to laugh when people ask me for Cajun recipes. Because I'm from the South, they think, of course, I know all about Cajun food. Hello! North Carolina is not even close to Cajun country. We're known for pork barbecue (-:ReplyDelete

Cajun food is the best! No doubt about it. A nice hot gumbo that's spiced just enough to feel it but not enough to hurt ... mmmmmmm.ReplyDelete
My wife, Erin, me the Slap Ya Mama people when she was a bartender. She said they were super nice.
When I was a little girl I remember having Gumbo at girlscout camp...being I live in Minnesota, I doubt that was very cajun.ReplyDelete
Last week, I decided to make Jambalaya ( http://cookwithshari.blogspot.com/2009/12/really-easy-jambalaya.html ) My husband had been whining for weeks about how he wanted jambalaya. I made it...and it was so good! I think these seasonings would be a fantastic addition, and I can't wait to try more cajun recipes!
I'm thinking it's about time for me to win! I neeeeeed some Slap Ya Mama so I can make a good ole shrimp gumbo and some SYM shrimp!ReplyDelete
the only thing missing from my daddy's gumbo recipe is some slap ya mama seasoning. he would never suggest it because he is respectful, but it would add just enough sass to make it the best ever!!! =)ReplyDelete
Congrats to Kristen, Cajun Chef Ryan, Megan Landry Champagne, Angela Bankston, and Kate March as the winners of the Slap Ya Mama Cajun Seasoning Giveaway!! Thanks to everyone for entering, and if you actually know me and can track me down, I'm sure I can get you some free SYM from my personal stash even if you didn't win.ReplyDelete
