Whether you are a Broncos’ fan, a Seahawks’ fan, or just in it for the commercials, it’s not too early to start thinking about your Super Bowl Party. The best place to start is with everyone’s favorite snack: chips and dip. Here are some different takes on the great classic. Bon Appétit!
I’ve been baking up a storm over the holidays and some of the recipes have been “winners” and others, well, not so much. Here is one, however, that really knocked my socks off. Food & Wine’s Pecan Pie Bars are to die for! It has a pecan pie taste, but in a bar. Love it!
We’ve had a snowy week here in DC. Just the perfect weather for sitting inside and sipping a warm winter cocktail.
Yesterday I did some long overdue gardening. The herb garden in particular had gotten way too unruly, most especially the rosemary bush. So I took my clippers and chopped away. When finished, I had a garbage bag full of rosemary sprigs and I could have trimmed even more.
I thought it would be a shame to throw it all away so I tried to come up with some uses for it. I made a bouquet out of some and then decided to also make a rosemary simple syrup. I used this recipe from The Kitchn. I plan to use the syrup to make rosemary lemonade or maybe a cocktail of some kind. The simple syrup will keep in the fridge for up to one month so I have time to figure it out.
Have excess herbs you don’t know what to do with? Try drying them, making herb butter, a simple syrup, flavored olive oil… so many options!
As your guests dance the night away, they might long for an extra bit of sustenance. With so many late night snack options, here are a few treats sure to provide satisfaction that will have your guests raving for years to come.
I am a huge fan of the slow cooker. It is such a convenient way to put a meal on the table when your schedule is extra busy. It is not easy to find good slow cooker recipes, though. I have found the ones on Williams-Sonoma’s website to be particularly yummy. I wonder how these Spring recipes are from Better Homes & Gardens … the pulled pork sliders look delicious and I think I will need to try them!
I think I found my new favorite Fall dessert! These pumpkin whoopie pies from Epicurious are amazing. I followed the recipe to a tee. The only modification I would suggest is not candying the pecans (the whoopies are sweet enough on their own) and press the pecans into the cream rather than rolling them on the sides.
One of my favorite culinary treats in summer is watermelon. Refreshing and bright, watermelon is often a great picnic or BBQ food or a sweet dessert at the end of a simple meal. But watermelon also shines as a star in summer salads. The three below look delicious!
