I've wanted to go back to New Orleans since Katrina.  Years ago the hubs & I wanted to do habitat for humanity, but it never worked out, so we sent them money instead.  This trip was for our anniversary the hubs knew how much I wanted to go there to eat and support the area. The food was amazing, I'd go back in heartbeat.  Cafe Du Monde was a must for breakfast.  The beignets are sweet and the perfect balance to the chicory coffee they serve.  I introduced muffuletta to the hubs and now he wants me to make them.  We walked around Jackson Square, and the rest of the French Quarter, stayed in the Garden District and admired the lovely homes. We ate our way across town.  I tried to take a picture of the alligator & sausage cheesecake from Jacques'Imo's, but it did not turn out.  I highly recommend ordering it if you go and wash it down with a watermelon mojito.    Sorry about the quality of the pics - all are from my phone. 



  1. I've never been to New Orleans so I love seeing pictures from there!  It looks just beautiful.  I'm a new follower :)  I'd love if you'd stop by my blog some time and say hi (and follow back if you're interested).

  2. You should visit NOLA if you get the chance.  A lovely city with such fabulous food.
    Following you as well.  gigi

  3. Looks like a great trip! All of that food looks so good!
