Recipe: Homemade Cajun Seasoning

I'm quite obsessive compulsive in the kitchen. I have a hard time sharing the kitchen with other people because everyone does things differently. One thing that I am extremely careful about, that most people don't even notice, is keeping spice bottles clean. I absolutely hate when I pick up a salt shaker and it makes my hands sticky.

Despite my OCD, old bottle of spices often do get sticky. This is why, with the not-so-often-used spices, rather than buying my own bottle, I prefer to make it on an as needed basis. Cajun Seasoning is one of those things I use only one every blue moon. Today, I made my own!
