We made beignets this morning, using the recipe from The Joy of Cooking. Since I have never had beignets before, I’m not sure if they turned out the way they’re supposed to, but they were yummy. I like the way they flipped themselves over while cooking. Sort of cute—if food can be cute. My house still smells like hot oil though and I do not like that. They will probably be made again despite the lingering smell because anything easy, fun and delicious deserves to be repeated.
