I know I haven’t written a blog about cooking in ages but I haven’t stopped making new dishes. I have actually been doing it just don’t have much time to get here and sit and write out what I have to say. Needless to say we watched the Princess and the Frog the other day with Kennedi and I was inspired by the movie to try and finally make the gumbo I was going to make when we had New Orleans night. I know I didn’t post about that either but I will have to post those pics of the Po Boy Sandwiches that I made and the Hurricane cocktail I also made for that night, when I download them from my camera.
So watching the movies I decided to make gumbo and beignets. I found the gumbo recipe on a website that had lots of different gumbos to try and give you a base to start from. It was super easy and simple to make and follow I would highly recommend it. The beignets were a little harder to find something that I wanted to lock on to but I found one by Emeril and I used his Sweet Beignets recipe. These were probably not your typical beignets but they were good to me and Steve. It had a very crunchy texture on the outside and nice and airy on the outside but it was a short cut recipe but I think its my go to one from here on out. Check out the pics below.
