New Orleans is one of my favorite spots in the U.S. I have ever visited, and a big part of that is the food. Oh, the food. On our trip a few years ago, we visited the famous Cafe Du Monde for beignets and have been talking about them ever since. I was gifted a box of Cafe Du Monde's beignet mix awhile ago, and this weekend we finally made the French doughnuts at home. While it wasn't quite the same as enjoying them in NOLA, it was pretty darn close.
