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. :-)
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!
@BangieB Haha, I caught that comment, too.
good cook = good food
Spicy chili con carne (with a dollop of sour cream, of course).
It would most likely be spinach and cheese pie. No one else can do it right.
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.
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.
Thanks for the great feedback everyone! I'll do my very best to try all (if not most) of these tasty dishes.
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.
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
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!
