From this blog - Shrimp and Grits
I made this dish last year and even though the pictures aren't that great (I've grown a lot since then) I still love this meal. I literally wish I had it on the stove right now.
Curry and Comfort - Shrimp Creole
I'm tempted to spend the time making this tonight (even though it's more of a totally busy microwave kind of night) since it's so simple and healthy. It looks like it's packed with spicy cajun flavor, which I love.
Annie's Eats - Chicken and Shrimp Jambalaya
I definitely don't have the time to whip this dish up tonight, but I wish I did! It's something I've made in the past unsuccessfully, and I'd like to give this recipe a go.
Serious Eats - Muffaletta Sandwich
I'd like to try this traditional New Orleans sandwich with its olive salad and provolone cheese. I wouldn't mind swapping out the deli meat for grilled veggies.
All Recipes.com - Mint Julep
Believe it or not, I've still never had a mint julep! This is a drink I really want to try soon.
Nigella Lawson - Mint Julep Peaches
Ever since I saw this picture in Nigella Lawson's book Summer I've been dying to try it. It would work great as a healthy summer dessert.
Snippets of Thyme - Galette de Rois
I put this on here because I think the picture and story behind it are awesome.
Southern Living Magazine - King Cake
Of course I couldn't have a Mardi Gras round-up without a King Cake. I figure the people at Southern Living Magazine know what they're talking about.
The Curvy Carrot - Bananas Foster Cupcakes
Bananas foster always reminds me of New Orleans. A cupcake that combines bananas foster and rum cinnamon buttercream? Perfect!
I can't wait to (hopefully) get to some of these recipes over the coming months! They all look amazing. Happy Mardi Gras :)
