Mama Delilah's Jammin Jambalaya
Nothing says lovin like some spicy Louisiana cooking. I absolutely LOVE making this when I have the time. I'm toning down the amount of creole seasoning that I use, because I tend to be a little heavy handed with it. The amount is an approximate - season to your taste. You can substitute cajun seasoning for the creole if you like. It's all about personal preference!
