Let's get cooking!

New Year’s Eve Appetizers and Drinks

I always enjoy a gathering of appetizers where I can pick and choose my favorites, and pile them on a plate one by one.

I think there’s something in my brain that tells me that because they’re small the calories don’t count as much…so please don’t burst my bubble. After all, diet season is right around the corner so we can worry about those pesky additional pounds then.

Until then…Happy New Year! Let’s Party!! 

Rudolph the Bread-Nosed Reindeer

Or, you can use store-bought frozen bread dough and follow the instructions for forming and shaping.

Either way you make him, your family and friends will be delighted to see Rudolph making an appearance at the holiday table!

Slow Roasted Baby Back Ribs

As much as I enjoy eating baby back ribs, I never order them in restaurants. Ever. I just can’t seem to bring out my cannibal cave-woman side in public.

At home, however, all bets are off, and you can find me gnawing on bones with the best of them.
