I've never been to a Mardi Gras celebration, but that's all about to change because this Sunday my #SundaySupper friends and I are bringing the festivities to you with a Fat Sunday party.

Mardi Gras is the annual celebration of Carnival with festivities in major cities around the world like Rio de Janeiro (Brazil), Mazatlán (here in Mexico), and New Orleans (US). The festivities conclude on Fat Tuesday, which is our last day to binge on rich, decadent foods (and beverages) before the Lenten season starts on Ash Wednesday.

Since New Orleans is home to the biggest Mardi Gras celebration in the US, we will be serving up plenty of traditional New Orleans fare like beignets, po' boys, and jambalaya with lots of cajun and creole influences. And if you're looking for sinfully delicious desserts, we've got plenty of those too. And it wouldn't really be a Mardi Gras party without a few cocktails. So be sure to tune in this Sunday for our Fat Sunday celebration.

Here's a sneak peek of the recipes coming this Sunday...
