For a spectacular beignet recipe, check out this Serious Eats video recipe:
Espresso Chocolate Sauce recipe: In a small saucepan, heat 1/4 cup cream (I used low fat milk cause that’s all we had), 1/4 cup espresso or strong coffee (chicory coffee would be perfect), and 1/8 cup evaporate cane juice (or granulated sugar). Whisk and bring to a boil. Place 4 oz. good quality chopped semisweet chocolate or chips in a heat safe bowl. Pour the milk-coffee mixture on top of the chocolate and mix until smooth. Serve with the beignets or some fruit too!
My dad is also making some Filipino Fried Chicken, which is my grandmother Inang’s (my Mom’s mother) recipe, can’t wait!
What are you up to today?
To all my readers,
Happy Fat Tuesday!
(“Let the good times roll!”)
Now I gotta go exercise after eating a couple of beignets!
Also, I can’t forget…
Happy Darwin Day and Happy President Lincoln day too!
