In New Orleans, Mardi Gras isn't limited to just one day. There are multiple days of parades, parties, music, beads, costumes, and eating leading up to February 12th. We like their style—following the simple equation that more fun > less fun—and we're planning on making many New Orleans inspired treats this week. Want to follow along with us on the party train?
