I've been assigned bread this year for our Thanksgiving meal, and instead of doing the usual Pillsbury crescent rolls or buying rolls and just heating them up, I'd really like to put my baking skills to the test and bake some rolls or bread from scratch. Problem is, every recipe that makes my mouth start to water involves a stand mixer. While I do hope to get one of these someday, I don't have one now and I definitely won't have one by Thanksgiving. Does anyone have a drool-worthy recipe that I can prepare without this wonderful kitchen appliance?
I'm trying to eat a little healthier and I get squicked out by raw poultry anyway, so I'd like to start using meat substitutes when making my dinners. I'd like to be able to use a marinade on my "chicken" but is this possible or even necessary?
I'm so lost.
I'm going to a wine and cheese party this weekend and I am absolutely befuddled as to what to bring. I'm not an expert in either department. What are some good and dependable wine and cheese combinations that can ensure that I don't show up with a box of Franzia and a can of EZ-Cheez?
I'll be hosting a Cinco de Mayo party at my house next month, and I'm trying to come up with some different ideas for food and drink. It would mostly be snack type food, and not a complete meal. I just would like to stay away from typical choices for a theme like this: tacos, burritos, etc. But variations on those would be helpful too!
Plus, any drink ideas?
