Those of you who have been following the blog for a while know that I love skewers! They’re super fun to eat and easier to serve. So, why not have them at your next tailgating party! They’ll make your life easier and your party a blast. The nice thing about most of these recipes is that you can make them before you leave the house, and then warm up when you get to the stadium.

1. Bunless Burger Bites Forget sliders! Grab all your favorite burger toppings, some skewers and hed to the grill. This Delish recipe has you cook the mini patties first and then assemble them on kabobs.

 

2. Loaded Tater Tots You can’t go wrong with tater tots, cheese and bacon! If you want to snack on these before the game you could try cooking them on the grill or just make them ahead of time and warm them up.

Cake pops that get their colorful toppers right from the pantry! Dried fruits, nuts and cookies make beautiful and tasty decorations for this classic treat.

 

The gooey, soft centers of cake pops are irresistible!  Pretty sure that’s why they are ever-so-popular. They’re pretty fun to make (crumbling up a perfectly good cake into tiny crumbs and mashing it together with frosting!). They’re also very fun to decorate.

Cake Pops With Pantry ToppersThis variation is not claiming to be healthy because of fruit and nuts. But my goodness they make for pretty decorations. I love the pop apricots and cranberries make on the white and brown chocolates. I chopped the dried fruits into tiny little pieces to they look like little jewels on the cake pops.

Any nuts or seeds will do, but the green pepitas are the cutest; and white speckles of coconut are quite tasty. I don’t need to tell you crushed cookies are a great topper. You know that!

Nachos For A Party Crowd

By | 4th of July, Appetizers + Nibbles, Easy Dinners, Entertaining, Fall, Father's Day, Holidays + Seasons, Kid Friendly Dinners, Kids, Main Dish, Party Foods, Snacks, Summertime Favorites | No Comments
More days than not there are nachos in my house. For parties, game days (read Super Bowl), movie night and the like I need a lot of nachos! Layer your fixings and bake them in the oven for Nachos For A Crowd.

When I entertain at home I take a step away from the brain-work of major creativity (I cook for a living) and stick to things that are easy, crowd-pleasing and fun. For the Super Bowl, I’m making nachos with all the fixings. Along with some drinks and my chocolate chip cookies, I’m going to be totally set. See this recipe on KSL.com where it was originally published.

Nachos For A Party Crowd

I make my Nachos For A Crowd in the oven. No melting cheese sauces and cleaning up drippy messes and no heating small batches of chips and cheese in the microwave. Depending on the party I’m having, I’ll add beans or shredded meat, and I have sour cream, salsas and guacamole in bowls for people to add to their plates.

Make nachos for everyone all at once by cooking them on a baking sheet. I line it with foil (for easy cleanup), and layer the goodness of chips, cheese and other tasty additions, then bake for about 10 minutes.

Making Nachos

The cheese is key, and I like a variety. Mixing cheeses gives depth of flavor and texture. Some cheese melts silky smooth, some get a bit chewy and others are crumbly and salty delicious like Cotija.

My favorite is a Monterey Jack of course, and then you have his brother Pepper Jack to add spice. A little mild or sharp cheddar adds classic flavor and even pieces of Velveeta gives a silky melt on top of the crunchy chips. I love a good carnitas nacho (braised pork), shredded steak or chicken as well. Adding meat makes the nachos more substantial, closer to a meal, if you eat enough like I usually do.

Nachos For A Party Crowd

Check my list below for any extras you can add and layer, layer, layer. It’s an oven-nacho trick. One layer of chips, cheese, toppings, covered by another layer and sometimes even a third. The even heat from the oven melts all the cheese and heats everything perfectly. Serve with tongs so guests can grab an entire serving at once.

Nachos For A Crowd checklist:
Cheese Please

Monterey Jack is perfect for melting. Pepper Jack adds great spice. Crumble Cotija or other Mexican cheese on top when the nachos come out of the oven.

Layers of Good

Two or three layers of chips, cheeses and toppings are perfect in the even heat of the oven.

Meat the Merrier

Add braised pulled pork for carnitas nachos, or shredded chicken or beef for a more hearty snack.

Top That

Additions like canned beans, white onions, pickled jalapeños, fresh tomatoes and sweet peppers are added in layers with the cheese and cooked along with the chips.

It All Adds Up

Have bowls of these add-ons for guests to try on their servings: sour cream, cilantro, sliced scallions, olives, guacamole, salsa and hot sauce.

Nachos For A Crowd

Prep Time: 25 minutes

Cook Time: 15 minutes

Total Time: 40 minutes

Yield: Serves 12

Nachos For A Crowd

Crunchy chips with loads of toppings for hungry party-goers are easy to make when you do it in the oven.

Ingredients

  • 2 11-oz bags tortilla chips
  • 5 cups shredded cheese
  • 1 can drained black beans
  • ½ cup chopped white onion
  • ½ cup pickled jalapeños
  • Toppings such as cilantro, scallions and olives
  • Serve with sour cream, guacamole and salsa

Instructions

  1. Heat oven to 350 F. Line two large rimmed baking sheets with foil. Arrange half of the chips on pans and top with some cheeses, beans, onion, and jalapeño. Repeat layers for two to three layers total. (These can be assembled up to one hour before baking.)
  2. Working with one sheet at a time, bake until cheese is melted, 10 to 15 minutes. Sprinkle with cilantro, scallions and olives if desired and serve with desired toppings. Heat a second pan as the first for fresh, hot nachos.

Apple Cream Cheese-Stuffed French Toast

By | Breakfast + Brunch, Christmas, Fall, Holidays + Seasons, Kids, Uncategorized | One Comment

Apple Cream Cheese-Stuffed French Toast could be this weekend’s highlight!

Here on the East Coast we are preparing for a Nor’easter. One of those big storms that bring snow or rain and wind, and ocean waves crashing onto the coast, Philly and DC.
I’ve been part of some doozies! One of my favorite things to do when the snow hits is to strap on my boots and wander the middle of the streets of New York City. You can walk down the middle of the snow-covered streets that are usually crammed with cars and buses. For a few hours the city is quiet and peaceful.
Needless to say, the impending moment of peace is preceded by mass hysteria. Seriously. New Yorkers know how to panic (and then thankfully they know how to cope). The store shelves are already empty. I doubt there’s a water bottle or loaf of bread to be had. But I’m going to go find one, and some apples, and some cream cheese. This French toast is perfect for staying in and waiting out the storm.

Apple Cream Cheese-Stuffed French Toast

This recipe is inspired by fancy New York brunches, like the ones you eat at Norma’s or Sarabeth’s. (Wait…why are some of the most delicious brunch places named after ladies? Ladies rock!) The French toast, pancakes and omelets are always over the top delicious.

Apple Cream Cheese French Toast

I’ve made it simple enough to make at home. Some stewed, sliced apples, spiced cream cheese and maple syrup. Brioche bread makes it extra indulgent but you can use your favorite bread, no problem. Even better, the fresh-squeezed orange juice won’t cost you $9. Nine dollars!!! New York is sometimes crazy. Sometimes.

Ingredients

  • 1 pkg (8 oz) cream cheese, softened
  • 4 tbsp confectioners' sugar
  • 2 tsp ground cinnamon
  • ½ tsp ground ginger
  • 5 baking apples (about 2¼ lb), peeled, cored and cut into ⅛- to ¼-inch thick slices
  • ¾ cup granulated sugar
  • 6 tbsp unsalted butter
  • 1 cup whole milk
  • 4 large eggs
  • 1 1-lb loaf brioche or soft French bread, cut into eight ¾ -inch-thick slices
  • ½ cup chopped toasted pecans, plus more for garnish
  • ½ cup maple syrup
  • 2 tbsp vegetable oil

Instructions

  1. In a medium bowl, stir together cream cheese, confectioners' sugar, ½ tsp cinnamon and the ginger until combined well. Set aside.
  2. In a large bowl, toss together apples, granulated sugar and 1 tsp cinnamon. In a large nonstick skillet, melt 4 tbsp butter over high heat. Add apple mixture and cook stirring occasionally until just softened, about 8 min. Remove from heat.
  3. In a 13- by 9-inch shallow dish, whisk together milk, eggs and remaining ½ tsp cinnamon, set aside.
  4. Spread a heaping ¼ cup cream cheese mixture onto each of 4 bread slices. Top each with 1 tbsp nuts and 6 to 8 apple slices. Cover with remaining 4 bread slices to make sandwiches.
  5. Soak 2 sandwiches at a time in the milk-egg mixture 5 min per side.
  6. Add maple syrup to remaining apples in skillet and stir to combine.
  7. Heat a griddle or large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add 1 tbsp oil and 1 tbsp butter to pan. Add 2 sandwiches and cook, turning once, until golden brown. 6 to 8 min. Repeat with remaining 1 tbsp oil, 1 tbsp butter and the sandwiches.
  8. Cut sandwiches in half and serve immediately topped with apples in syrup. Garnish with toasted nuts, if desired.

Shriveled Ogre-Nose Pizza

By | Appetizers + Nibbles, Bread, Easy Dinners, Entertaining, Fall, Halloween, Healthy + Diet, Holidays + Seasons, Kid Friendly Dinners, Kids, Main Dish, Party Foods, Uncategorized, Vegetables, Vegetarian | No Comments

Making little kids laugh has got to be one of the best things on the planet. I love when they lose it! Just toss their heads back laughing. It’s so gratifying to know that they are laughing, not out of courtesy, but because they genuinely think it’s funny. (Well at least most kids haven’t honed the skills of manipulation and the courtesy laugh)

My 3 year-old nephew Sawyer is a sucker for gibberish. All I have to do rattle off a nonsensical sentence to him in a language no one understands and he’s a gonner.

If you just read the name of this recipe to kids, I’ll guarantee at least a crinkled nose and grin. But, I’m pretty sure you’ll get a full blown laugh.

It’s the perfect, pre trick-or-treating dinner. Made with store-bought pizza dough, canned tomatoes, creamy ricotta and colorful roasted veggies, it’s simple enough to prepare–even while wearing your witch hat.

Cut zucchini lengthwise in half, then into ¼-inch-thick slices. in a large bowl, toss together bell pepper, zucchini, remaining 2 tbsp oil and ¼ tsp salt; add to roasting parsnips on baking sheet. Roast until tender and just golden, about 20 min. Remove from oven and let cool slightly.
  3. 3. Increase oven to 450°F and place rack in lower third. Sprinkle a baking sheet with 1 tbsp cornmeal; set aside.
  4. 4. On a lightly floured surface, roll out half of the dough and, using, hands, stretch to 1/8-inch thickness. Transfer to prepared baking sheet. Top with half of each tomatoes, ricotta (in dollops) and roasted vegetables. Bake until cooked through and bottom is golden brown, 15 to 18 min.

Baby Broccoli with Hazelnut Butter

By | Buffets, Christmas, Easter, Entertaining, Fall, Healthy + Diet, Holidays + Seasons, Side Dishes, Thanksgiving, Vegetables, Vegetarian | No Comments

Baby Broccoli with Hazelnut Butter

Holiday Dinner Comes Together

Whether you have a traditional roast, meatballs, ham, turkey, fish, tamales or goose (hello Tiny Tim) for Christmas dinner, this gorgeous side will be pretty perfect. Or pretty and perfect. Depends on how you like to look at it.

The perfection comes in the special little hazelnuts sizzled in butter that browns into a tasty golden sauce. It’s just fancy enough for a Christmas Eve, day or holiday dinner, but easy enough that you might just want it on a regular Wednesday.

Tip: Baby broccoli is dark green with tender long stems and tiny tree tops. If you can’t find it in your market, broccoli rabe is a great substitution. I like the mild flavor of baby broccoli though, so I suggest you ask your grocer to order it!
