As with anything in Louisiana, holidays are celebrated a little bit differently here than anywhere else. We think it's a point of distinction and class that we do things a little bit differently than the rest of the country! That's why I decided to find some great deals on Amazon for you to peruse in case you're looking to change up your dinner this year or to help out if you're from out of state and want to try some classic Louisiana favorites!

Fried turkey is one of my personal favorites for Thanksgiving! Please, just remember to thaw the bird BEFORE you throw it in the fryer!

How about some crab cakes for a change of pace? You can never go wrong with Zatarain's!
