When I was in New Orleans I had a coconut bread pudding at Deanie’s and also a creole bread pudding at Commander’s Palace with whiskey sauce. I wanted to make my own version and combine the two. I’ve made bread pudding in the past and I have to admit, the results were not that great at times. I find it hard to make sure the bread pudding stays moist after baking. I had my fingers crossed the entire time it was in the oven! I was really happy with the results and hope you guys give it try especially if you love bread pudding.
This is another quick and easy dish to make with just a few ingredients. It’s also a good way to use up some of the veggies you may have laying around.
No trip is complete to New Orleans without a trip to Cafe du Monde for beignets and cafe au lait! This was the first stop when we arrived. Although Cafe du Monde is extremely crowded we did not have to wait at all for a table. If you have never visited, just walk in, find an empty table and take a seat. Just be aware that there is powdered sugar everywhere and you will probably leave with powdered sugar on your clothes. But, it is definitely worth it.
Happy Valentine’s Day everyone! I just got back from New Orleans and wanted to share a few pics from New Orleans and Mardi Gras. I will be doing a separate post on the food so don’t worry! I had a blast and will hopefully get the chance to go back next year. I hope you enjoy the pics and keep a look out for the next food post.
I’m back and so happy to finally be posting again! I know it’s been a long time. I’m still having some computer problems, but hopefully they will be resolved soon and I’ll be back to running normally in no time. I’m getting ready for New Orleans, but I wanted to get this post up before I left.
When I think of Valentine’s Day, I think of chocolate, strawberries, and champagne. This dish is perfect for your sweet heart for breakfast or even dessert with a nice glass of bubbly!
I’ve been on a biscuit kick lately and wanted to try a variation of the classic buttermilk biscuit. I recently purchased some black truffle butter from D’Artagnan and figured a little truffle never hurt anything! I have to admit, I am one of those people that love truffle and it will never get old to me. Try these biscuits on there own or for brunch with a mimosa.
