Xmas party food

Every year for the Christmas party I'm usually on appetizer duty. I will usually make bacon and dates in mass quantities. It is super easy and mostly everyone loves it. Simply take a date, roll it in a strip of bacon, bake until bacon is crispy, and stick a toothpick through it. You can't go wrong. :-)

Baking with fresh-frozen blackberries

Use a bit of cornstarch to thicken the juice. Frozen berries tend to give off more runny juices. It will certainly taste just as great though!

Hottest Food Network chick?

@BangieB Haha, I caught that comment, too.

Tailgating... oh yeah baby.

Spicy chili con carne (with a dollop of sour cream, of course).

It Doesn't Taste Like Mom's

It would most likely be spinach and cheese pie. No one else can do it right.

9 yr old Niece's Birthday baking type gift what to buy?

I agree with the apron idea. A good cookbook is an idea, too. It would be something she would have for a very long time and she could learn a lot from it.


@meleyna: Yes, I agree with limoncello! It is a fantastic drink that I thoroughly enjoyed on a recent trip to Italy. It is a great drink to make at home.

I further recommend a lemon-poppyseed bread- sweet and tangy, with a nice crunch from the seeds... delicious.

Just Curious: What really starts your engine in the morning?

Usually just a cup of coffee. On the rare occasion that I'm hungry early in the morning, I'll sometimes make an english muffin/egg/cheese melt to go.

Traditional Spanish Foods

Thanks for the great feedback everyone! I'll do my very best to try all (if not most) of these tasty dishes.

Kashi Frozen Entrees

I'll probably give these a try, too. Kashi products, in general, I tend to avoid. Their cereals aren't bad, but when it comes to the small snacks like the TLC bars... I know they're healthy, but I just can't get over the bland taste.

Help Finding a Traditional Moroccan Dish

Tabouleh is a great dish that is often associated with Moroccan cuisine. It is extremely easy to make, tastes delicious, and is great for you. It's basically a parsley salad with lemon juice, tomato, and some minced garlic. You can eat it right away or put it on flatbread and make small wraps. There's a great recipe up on the Food Network site.

Hope this helps! Good luck

Do You Love Onions?

Raw onions are great, but there is nothing like caramelized. Cooking them with mushrooms is especially great. The mushrooms soak up all the flavor. Add that to an omelet with cheese. Delicious!
