Beignets

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!

Grilled Three-Cheese with Tomato, Basil, & Honey

Serves: 2

Time: 15 minutes

Difficulty: Easy

For Mother’s Day this year, I wanted to treat my wife to something extra special. One of her favorites is the Grilled Three-Cheese Sandwich from Café Muse in Royal Oak, Michigan. Their sandwich first received national attention being featured in a 2008 Esquire Magazine article about the “best sandwiches in America”, was later featured on Oprah in a “sandwich showdown”, and has been named as the “best grilled cheese sandwich in Metro Detroit” (Detroit Free Press) and “one of the perfect grilled cheese sandwiches in America” (Reader’s Digest). Unfortunately, trying to get a reservation at the renowned Café Muse on Mother’s Day is near impossible, so instead, I decided to make it at home for us to enjoy. The end result was absolutely delicious, and is most definitely a recipe I’ll be making many more times to come. If you’re a fan of grilled cheese, do yourself a favor and make this recipe soon. You’ll be glad you did!
