User Review: "Best bread pudding ever! I have made other bread puddings that took much longer to make and weren't nearly as good. My family asked for this one again so I was glad to find it on the website -- I'm so excited!" --slom05
Traditional King Cake
Recipe: Our Most Traditional King Cake
User Review: "I have been using this recipe for nearly 20 years, and it not failed me yet. The only change I have made is to the glaze recipe. I use an 8 ox. package of softened cream cheese creamed together with 1 1/2 to 2 cups powdered sugar, 1 stick of butter (room temperature), 1 to 2 tsp lemon juice and 1 tsp pure vanilla extract. I don't like overly sweet things and this glaze is just right for this not-too-sweet pastry. Laissez Les Bons Temps Rouler!" --Marybeth
Said to be The Big Easy's first cocktail, it was originally served at the Sazerac Coffee House.
