Ashli Christoval aka Jazzy Ash just released her latest album Bon Voyage. This fantastic album takes listeners on a trip to New Orleans where each track contains the region’s signature celebratory brassy sounds coupled with Christoval’s upbeat, jazzy vocals. Christoval’s family is from New Orleans so making this album very much touched upon her roots.
In keeping with this theme, and as a gift to her fans, Christoval is featuring a recipe for beignets on her site (thanks to Gina over at Shabby Creek Cottage) and including it in the album’s CD packaging. This is recipe that Christoval loves making with her family. She shares that “it’s an easy recipe, but it does take time…. a labor of love, so to speak. So, grab someone special and make some beignets together. Betcha can’t eat just one! Bon Appetit!”
As we head into Labor Day weekend, I thought it would be fun to feature some fried, sugary, doughnut-ty goodness. We can’t wait to dive in and bake these. Give it a try! Get crazy, powder your nose (see what I did there), take pics, and dance your sugary pants off while listening to Bon Voyage.
We’d love to see your baking photos! Share ’em if ya got ’em.
Get to know Jazzy Ash at her official site, check out a video from Bon Voyage inspired by Louis Armstrong and keep up with her on Facebook and Twitter. Bon Voyage is available via iTunes and Bandcamp.
As I get back into the swing of things dealing with some injuries and getting into the routine of school I will see you back here next week for some more music, creative stories, interviews, videos and all kinds of goodies for all ages.
