A bunch of this, a little of that - oh, and a cookbook giveaway!
It's a cold dreary day, and I've chosen to combat that by eating chocolate covered dried strawberries. It seems to work, but it's amazing at how fast they disappear. I have to tell you how much I'm enjoying the list of favorite meals you're submitting for the Vintage Taste Cookbook Giveaway! Don't forget, you have all week to respond - just submit a comment below with your favorite meal and you'll be included in the drawing for all one hundred elegant-to-easy recipes with beautiful glossy pictures (my prerequisite to a good cookbook).
I just filled out a rebate for Andes Mints - I couldn't resist the impulse buy at Food Lion when a shortbread cookie recipe stuffed with Andes Mints caught my eye. I'll be fixing those this week. Who doesn't love shortbread or Andes Mints? Sounds like the perfect cookie match to me. Stay tuned on that!
In channel surfing the other night, the remote mysteriously landed on the Foodnetwork and I came across a must-fix recipe for Crepes stuffed with Cheese and covered in a Poblano Creme Sauce. I just had to wipe drool off my keyboard over that one. But you'll have to wait until tomorrow, as tonight is Mahi Taco night!
As if that wasn't enough, I'm in the midst of planning a baby shower (hello homemade party favors!) and contemplating life altering decisions like catering. Oooooooooooo! Excitement at every turn. And did I mention Valentine's day is less than a month away? I'm already planning every sweet bite.
Have a delicious day and we'll chat soon!
