AsianCajuns.com: Hello Again! - Dearest Readers, It’s been too long! So sorry for the radio silence. I’ve spent the past two weeks trying to get my life back to some type of normalcy. Thank you so, so, so, so much for all the wonderful words of support and kindness! I wish I could better express how much it meant (and continues to mean) to me. Last month’s surgery and post-op infection threw me for an emotional and physical loop that I’m still coming to terms with. Long... http://ow.ly/2V7zHB

AsianCajuns.com: Today I … - Dear Cath I know how miserable you feel at this moment. Those antibiotics feel like they are not only killing all the bacteria in your body but you as well. I know how exhausted your body is from fighting first the surgery and then the infection and now the drugs. I know it feels never-ending and that even watching “Poirot” for seven hours straight doesn’t take all of that away. So I hope a little distraction might help. This will be the mos... http://ow.ly/2TENSO

AsianCajuns.com: An update on Cath’s Endometriosis Surgery - Photo by Josh Norem Dear Readers Cath’s surgery went really well and she’s wrapped up warm and cozy recovering at my parent’s house in Atlanta. I’m so very grateful to Dr. Sinvervo (the endo specialist and surgeon) and his team for keeping my twinie safe and hopefully curing her of the endo and putting an end to the pain she has had to endure. Cath’s surgery was on Tuesday and she was on her way home Wednesday... http://ow.ly/2TaLj1

AsianCajuns.com: See Ya 2014! Hello 2015! - Hello dear readers! First of all, thank you for spending another year visiting with us! It’s hard to believe that AsianCajuns.com has been around since 2007 and you all have been such amazing, loyal readers. Thank you, thank you, thank you! Things were a little slower this year on the blogging front. Lar spent a good chunk of the beginning of the year recovering from her surgery and I spent the last half of the year slammed wi... http://ow.ly/2SKlnH

AsianCajuns.com: Happy Homemade Christmas! - Hello Dearest Lar!! It’s been too long! I figured that as soon as I finished my finals I would have plenty of time to clean my house, write blog posts, and just get my life organized. Ha! How silly of me. Between work, catching up with friends, and getting ready for Christmas I’ve hardly had any free time. Last weekend I spent every waking hour making Christmas presents. Since I’ve been trying my best not to spend any money I... http://ow.ly/2SwGuV

AsianCajuns.com: Cath update - Dear Readers We are so sorry things have gone a little quiet here the last few weeks. As you know from previous posts, Cath got an infection after her endometriosis surgery at the beginning of the month. She is still at home recuperating and sloughing through the last week of her heavy-duty antibiotics. I’ve been skyping her daily. Sometimes she feels good enough to sit up and chat and other days she’s too nauseated to even look at the scr... http://ow.ly/2U6Rdd

AsianCajuns.com: We are totally identical - Dear Readers Cath is back in the hospital for another few days because she developed an infection post-surgery. This is rare. Our surgeon told us this happens to 1% of his patients. I also had an infection after my endometriosis surgery. Rare, you say? This is what I think: 1) We’re totally ruining our doctor’s percentages. (Now he has to tell patients, “it’s less than 1% likely you’ll have to come back — unless, of course, yo... http://ow.ly/2TysQ4

AsianCajuns.com: Festive Hibernation - Dear Cath I know you must be feeling nervous for your surgery on Tuesday. It feels unreal to me because I can’t be there with you, and it feels unreal because I was right where you are now just last year. I know the anxiety you must be feeling but also the hope that this will end the endo pain. I want you to know that you will feel so, so good once this surgery is over and your body has had time to heal. I still can’t believe I’ve ... http://ow.ly/2SQalB

AsianCajuns.com: Beating the Post-Christmas Blues With Jamberry http://ow.ly/2SIm6A
Dearest Lar, I think almost everyone gets the post-Christmas blues. I'm jealous the Brits celebrate Boxing Day because it puts off the inevitable depression for a day. However, this year I didn't f...

AsianCajuns.com: A Winter Sea - Dear Cath I think Saddell House will always be one of my favorite places in the woooorld. I’m not sure how many people wouldn’t enjoy a large, comfortable home by the sea — even though it’s a blustery, wintry Scottish sea. Somehow the remoteness, the shush-shush of the waves and the sound of the wind through the pines makes it all the more perfect. And once you’ve had your daily tramp along the pebble beach and your cheeks are rosy from t... http://ow.ly/2RLq0B

AsianCajuns.com: Real Kitchen Inspiration From Iceland - Dear Lar, This post is kind of the opposite of the Konmari method of organizing. I forget how I stumbled upon these Kitchens of Iceland photos by Emily Johnston (possibly via Cup of Jo), but I just fell in love with them. Not only are they great photos, I just love, love, love the imperfect, messiness of the kitchens. Even though we’re more Type A’s and love organization, we’ve both talked about getting so bored w... http://ow.ly/2R90P0

Twin Sisters Blogging An Ocean Apart
Introduction
We (Cath and Lar) created AsianCajuns in April 2007 as a creative outlet to share all the things we love: style, fashion, art, food, literature etc. We're twins - part Chinese American and part French Cajun and love Peking duck and gumbo with equal fervor. In September 2011, Lar moved to Edinburgh, Scotland officially made AsianCajuns an international blog! In addition to sharing things that inspire us, we now use the blog to stay in touch with each other.
