Relish Recipe: Jambalaya

Have you ever visited New Orleans? If so, how about during Mardi Gras? I agree it is an awesome experience but a little crazy! You don’t have to be physically in NOLA to take part in the festivities. Host your own Fat Tuesday Mardi Gras themed party with flashy decor, king cake and of course great cajun eats! Anytime you entertain, the less mess the better; that is why I am obsessed with one dish meals. The Staub 5.5 Quart Cocotte is great for making large batches for big groups of people, all with little cleanup. The Staub dutch oven is the best piece of cookware I own. I am just in love with the cherry red color. Red isn’t your color? No worries- they come in a ton of colors, shapes, and sizes. The Staub 5.5 Quart Cocotte is great for stove stop sautéing and stewing and then finishing up in the oven. To celebrate Mardi Gras in our house, I will be making a big old Staub pot of Jambalaya. It is super easy and sure to please your entire party. Check out the simple recipe below!

Eerie Halloween

Eerie Halloween

If you’re trying to figure out a color scheme for your Halloween party, make it easy on yourself. Going traditional orange and black is always a great idea, sticking with the season’s traditional pumpkins and eerie ghouls and monsters of the dark.  If you want to take it up a notch, get fired up by our Eerie Halloween palette, inspired by our Halloween cocktail, the Vampire’s Kiss.  Adding some yellows and gold electrifies the evening, a touch of blood red adds to the spooky vibe—and all pair well with your jack-o-latern orange and black.  We hope you enjoy your celebrations.  Happy Halloween!
