Mardi Gras

Is there anything better than Mardi Gras.  Everybody having fun, the bright beautiful colors and don’t get me started with the food.  Obviously,  that’s my favorite part so I would like to share some of our  recipes that I believe will make your Mardi Gras celebration a hit!

Let’s start with what everyone associates with the party and that is the King Cake.  One of my favorite takes on this classic is the King Cake Bubble Up.  Beautiful cake with the pretty colors and so fun and easy.  Another version of the classic cake is my King Cake Earthquake Cake.  Amazing flavor and a great way to use that extra box of yellow cake mix you already have in your pantry.  Mardi Gras makes me think of New Orleans so food with a kick is essential and the Cajun Sausage Chicken & Spinach Pasta hits the spot.  But, if you want to start the party with an appetizer that you can’t stop eating try the French Quarter Cheese Ball.  Yep, it’s that good!
