So simple and satisfying, cooked and chilled shrimp served alongside a flavorful dipping sauce has well earned its unquestionable spot among the most cherished classic appetizers. The finger-licking rémoulade sauce gets its distinctive flavor edge from the Creole mustard and smoked paprika. Definitely save any leftovers to spread onto sandwiches--in fact, you may just want to go ahead and pick up some extra shrimp and plan on making po'boys. If you have trouble finding Creole mustard, you can substitute Dijon or whole-grain mustard. This swap will make for a slightly different--but still totally delicious--flavor profile.

Trends come and go, but this recipe is proof that doughnuts are eternal. Even that box of Krispy Kremes that you picked up at midnight last night. Stale doughnuts need love, too. Which is why we’re recycling them in a warm, custardy bread pudding disguised as the greatest brunch dish of all time. As if the doughnuts weren’t enough, we add an extra layer of decadence in the form of white chocolate and raspberry sauces. Drizzle them on the bread pudding or directly into your mouth. We won’t judge.
