What a season, my peeps! First of all, can we talk about this godawful extended winter/"spring" we're having? One minute it's sunny-ish and pleasant, the next minute it's dark, stormy and downright scary outside. It's like the weather is having an identity crisis! And I don't know about you but it is definitely not contributing to my mood during this busy time of year!
Like many people, when times are busy and the weather is grey (or just indecisive) I like to turn to cooking. It's all too easy for me to get in a cooking rut and just be too busy to be creative so I'll end up cooking my usuals: turkey burgers, turkey meatballs, and some variety of soup first pop up on that list. Which are all fine and dandy of course, don't get me wrong. But what really makes me happy is when I slow down for a minute in the swirl of a busy season to get creative in the kitchen and cook something new up for you all. Bonus points if it's also comforting and tasty.
With this recipe that I'm so excited to share with you all I totally went all out with the creativity piece too. Because not only have I never made Jambalaya in my life, but I've never even eaten it! Yep, you heard me. This is truly a Hungry Ali first in every way, shape and form.
