When you can’t travel cook…beignets

So it would be naïve to think that we all had an unlimited budget and time off work to continuously travel the world, at least I don’t! So when you can’t travel, instead bring a piece of the world to you home via the kitchen. Food is one of the best ways to explore a new culture.

beignets

A few mornings ago I was inspired to take out taste buds to New Orleans with some beignets (delicious pockets of fried dough with powdered sugar). Although I did not make these from scratch, they tasted heavenly! FYI, I cut the Cafe du Monde box recipe in half because there was only two of us and I try not to eat a pound of doughnuts in one sitting. 🙂 See recipe at the end of the post!
