So, yesterday afternoon I was craving something sweet AND it was RAINING....and I always (pretty much always) make something sweet when it rains! I decided to make some Peanut Butter Cookies, they turned out ok.....but I used Butter when I normally use Crisco. I was bummed when they didn't turn out that great. Oh well.

Larry & the girls were playing the Wii and then Kylie wanted to play the Princess and the Frog game. So while they were playing they were doing a kitchen game and I heard the word BEIGNETS.....and I great thought popped into my head. So......thank goodness the last time I went to the store I bought some Beignet Mix! I was thrilled! ***HISTORY***back in 1997 when I graduated I went on a fabulous RV road trip with a few friends and her grandparents. One of our stops was New Orleans, and we were there for a few days to take in the sites. Of course we had to try the local foods....BEIGNETS were our FAVORITE. French Doughnuts COVERED in powdered sugar and we topped them off with either hot cocoa or choc. milk. YUMMY. While we were there I bought some mix, and made some when we got home....but it had been 12 years since I made them. So when I made them yesterday I was super excited. Larry & the girls LOVED them too! So....maybe a new tradition is born. The box is great too. There's a picture of Cafe Du Monde where we ate them everyday! Memories!!!! :)

So, needless to say.....they went fast. Everyone go out and buy some mix. I think it sells for $4-$5. Sooooo worth it, and super EASY to make!

  1. Hey Erica. I just wanted to bug you with a question. Do you have any tips for sewing with minky? I know it can be done, but have never done it before. It is regular fabric on the front and minky on the back.

    If your wouldn't mind sharing some of your expertise...
