    Jambalaya is always a favorite at my house and of course some King Cake.

    We love polish donuts for fat tuesday- Ponchiki (poon-chski). I am a Buffalo native and they are the best way to pig out!


    Jambalaya of course!

    I wish I was able to make beignets, but probably just make jambalaya.

    I like to make a lot of little party dishes. Will likely be making some pigs in a blanket, some corn fritters and some other dippable items!
