This year, one of my New Years resolutions was to eat more Cajun food. Weird – I know. It all began when I went home to Louisiana for the holidays. My very large, very loud family was appalled by the lack of Cajun cooking I do. In fact – my mom was flabbergasted that I haven’t made a gumbo in about 7 years. The truth of the matter is that I married a guy from Chicago– and he’s just not a big Cajun food fan. So I changed my cookin’ ways to more of a meat and potatoes type of cuisine. In turn – my girls have a meat and potatoes palate - not a “Cajun” palate. In fact, when my mom made a big gumbo at Christmas – neither one of my girls liked it. I kinda felt ashamed, like I had turned my back on my heritage…. hence the New Years resolution. Since I haven’t cooked Louisiana cuisine in such a long time – I have forgotten how to make a good gumbo – or a good etouffee. Eek!
My answer to this problem? Dodies Place in Allen, Texas. For the longest time I thought it was just a bar. But no my friends… it is a restaurant like no other. It has some of the best Louisiana/Cajun cuisine in the DFW area. I heart this place. It’s delish and has a hometown atmosphere. The catfish and red beans and rice are to die for and my hubby can get a great Po-Boy here. The best part – boiled Crawfish are in! I can eat my weight in these suckers and look forward to crawfish season every year. Dodies Place is located in The Village at Allen right across from The Allen Event Center. Woo-Hoo! I have figured out a way for me to stick to my New Years resolution and NOT have to clean the kitchen afterwards! Now…to just get my girls to love gumbo…

"I highly recommend Chris Laghezza as a real estate agent for the DFW metroplex. As a first time home buyer, Chris truly went above and beyond my expectations. From our very first phone conversation, Chris listened to my needs, my desired locations, my home "wish list" and budget. He helped me understand exactly what to expect during the home buying process, as well as important details to pay attention when looking at different properties. Furthermore, I felt that he had my best interests in mind at all times. Throughout the entire process, Chris was extremely professional, responsive, and available. In my opinion, Chris treats his clients as he would a member of his own family. I am very happy with my new home, and would recommend Chris Laghezza without hesitation. In the event I am in need of a realtor in the future, Chris will have my repeat business! 01/25/2016
