What Others Have Said About the Cajn Critter
"I would recommend this to anyone who loves to cook, loves Cajun food, or just collects cookbooks. I love it. It's now one of my favorites and I know I'll be using it often." Reading at the Beach
"Overall, Da Cajn Critter is a very nice little cookbook that now occupies a permanent space on our kitchen counter. The recipes in this book are generally simple and they cover a good cross- section of the different types of food and meals that are popular with Louisiana natives and other who love cajun cuisine. The book could be improved with a few small changes, but it is still good overall with a nice mixture of fun, practicality, and humor." Epinions.com Review
"Da Cajn Critter is a gumbo of old family, friends, and personal recipes from Louisiana, Europe and all over the U.S. It is a way of life for someone who wants to eat good food, be with real people and make cooking simple and easy so you actually want to cook. This collection of cajun and creole favorites is a must for anyone looking for authentic Louisiana flavors!" Miss Emmer's Reviews

"Da Cajn Critter iis one of the cutest, funnest cookbooks I’ve seen in ages. I fell in love with it when I first saw the title, but when I saw the actual cookbook, itself, I fell even harder...The book is filled with a wonderful southern charm feel. It made me want to pull up a chair in Pamela's kitchen and watch her cook her magic. The recipes are mouthwatering."

"Having been raised in New Orleans and growing up on Creole (albeit kosher) cooking, I was quite anxious to have a look at "Da Cajn Critter". What a lot of fun this book is. Pamela Lyles shows us how to cook without stress and we learn how to have fun in the kitchen and produce good food. Ah, the memories the book holds for me and I was quite surprised to see the recipe for chopped chicken liver, one of my favorite dishes.
The recipes are amazing and can be prepared quickly and the book is a collection of recipes that Lyles has collected for years and have been passed down from family member to family member. It is all about good food and easy preparation. As much as this is to read it also is a serious cookbook.
Lyles explains everything wonderfully--be it cooking an egg or "makin' groceries". The book is full of tips and ideas that captures New Orleans, and the magic that it is"
Food Network has gotten a little off kilter. All of the food competitions and touring restaurants are fun, but they don’t exactly encourage generations of people to get in the kitchen and have fun with cooking...Kitchen-Reviews.com
What an absolute joy to read. The colors of the book are very inviting. A bright yellow cover with the cutest Chef crawfish critter. This book is written with a lot of love. Pamela grew up in New Orleans and has been cooking since she was a little girl. Her collection of 185 recipes is gathered from many family and heirloom recipes and a love of good southern foods.
