Fat Tuesday Comfort Food Dessert

A trip to New Orleans during Mardi Gras has always been on our bucket list.  I enjoy all types of French Creole food .  We used to have a little family-owned Cajun restaurant down the road a piece, but sadly it closed.  Their seafood was terrific!

King Cake is also popular during Carnival Season here in New England and available in local bakeries.
