Christmas is over, and I’d say it’s no time to get soft, except that’s kinda the name of the game this time of year.
How bout, “It’s no time to slow down.” At least in the kitchen.
Enter – my mini collection of 3 recipes perfect for you New Year’s Eve table. A cocktail, blinis, and goat cheese truffles.
Booze and cookies. No. Strike that. Let’s try again.
Cookies and booze. Ah yes, much better.
Welcome friends, to the two-week, pre-Christmas, cocktail/cookie extravaganza!
When life hands you tomatoes, make fresh tomato juice, and add vodka – or something like that.
Note to self: when grilling marshmallows over an open flame for the purpose of making s’mores, do not, if said marshmallows catch on fire, flail the skewer around wildly, to put out the flame. You might fling it onto a stranger’s leg and catch their pant leg on fire… true story, me… this past Memorial Day.
In that vein, and the fact that there was a call for more creative S’more recipes, I bring you my Stout S’more Shakes, less chance of catching anyone on fire here.
The sweaters are coming off, the birds are singing, the flowers are in bloom, the Earth smells of awakening, our pale winter bodies rejoice in some sun and processed Vitamin D… it’s spring time, baby!
It might not be bathing suit time yet, but it sure is “park yourself on the porch, and enjoy a tasty beverage time!” This weekend – you, some sun, and a pitcher of this tasty sangria.
We survived the election, Thanksgiving came and went, we’re in the thick of a crappy football season (well, some of us), and the Christmas season has descended upon us out of no where. Who’s ready for a drink?
The table is set… Decadent sides. Deep fried turkeys. Indulgent desserts. We need some libations!
