Beignets

Posted by Anthony on August 14, 2017 in Dessert


Serves: 15-20 (2 beignets/serving)

Time: 60 min (active); 4+ hrs (inactive)

Difficulty: Medium

This past Sunday morning, I wanted to surprise my wife with one of her favorites: Beignets. We had recently attended a food truck rally, which has a beignet truck that is her absolute favorite, so this treat was definitely on our minds. I found a beignet recipe from Just a Pinch Recipes, and whipped up a half-recipe, which ended up making about 20 beignets (sized about 2″ x 3″). The recipe for the dough isn’t hard at all — it’s the frying that can get a little messy. But that aside, the end result was absolutely delectable, totally worth the frying mess, and definitely a recipe I’ll be making again. So if you’re looking for a great sweet treat, look no further and try this recipe now. You’ll be glad you did!

Fresh Corn Cakes

Serves: 4-6

Time: 20-30 min

Difficulty: Easy

Last night, along with the new Strawberry Lemonade Sangria that I made, my wife and I were in the mood for some BBQ Kebabs. But I also wanted to try out a new recipe for a side dish, and ultimately landed on a recipe for Fresh Corn Cakes. I ended up making them without the “summer salsa” that the original recipe called for, opting instead to top with diced tomatoes, corn, and shredded lettuce. While I think the summer salsa from the original recipe would be delicious, I don’t think I missed it too much with just the tomatoes, corn, and lettuce. If you’re in the mood for a fresh way to use some corn this summer, give this recipe a shot. You’ll be glad you did!

Last night, I was once again in the mood for some new recipes. Since it was a nice warm summer day, I decided it was high time for a cool, refreshing drink. My wife found an article/video with 4 Frozen Sangria recipes, and we decided to try out this Strawberry Lemonade Sangria. Other than the process of freezing the wine and lemonade, this is a super quick and easy drink recipe that’s sure to cool you off on the warmest of days.

Creamy Tuscan Chicken

Creamy Tuscan Chicken

Serves: 4

Time: 30 min

Difficulty: Easy

As mentioned in the recipe for Bacon Asparagus Pastry Twists, my family and I were hosting guests a few nights ago, and I was in the mood for some new recipes. I found a Three Course Tuscan Dinner article and decided to try my hand at the appetizer and main course. The appetizer was delicious, and this Creamy Tuscan Chicken was, in my humble opinion, even better. It is creamy and very flavorful, and paired wonderfully with whole wheat spaghetti with a side salad. If you’re looking for a new chicken/pasta recipe, I highly recommend this one. You won’t be disappointed!

Serves: 4

Time: 30-40 mins

Difficulty: Medium

A few nights ago, I was in the mood for some new recipes, especially since my family and I were hosting guests. After a bit of searching, I stumbled upon an article for making a Three Course Tuscan Dinner and decided to try my hand at the appetizer and main course. Since I’m not a huge fan of bacon, I did a few of these without bacon, just with the pastry wrap, which I think was equally delicious. If you’re looking for a fresh recipe to try with some asparagus, I highly recommend this one. You won’t be disappointed!
