Sorry for the very slow posting week. You’d think with Thanksgiving I’d have a million recipes to write about, but with the million recipes also came entertaining and visiting family, so not so much on the blogging front. I did make a new Cornbread and Sausage stuffing recipe from Allrecipes.com that turned out delish. I added extra liquid (the turkey drippings) and really soaked the stuffing half way through baking. Highly recommend it. Give it a try for Christmas.
This week’s winner of The Little Book of Christmas Cooking and The Starting Cooking Kit for Kids donated by Usborne Books and my good friend Glenda is……
Laurie said…Thanks for the contest!
My four year old granddaughter loves to cook! Those cookbooks are earmarked for her if I win.
Congratulations Laurie. I hope your granddaughter gets inspired and grows up to be a food
freak enthusiast like yours truly. Please send us a picture of one of her creations.
New York Style (you know, the Bagel Crisps and Pita chips people) recently released a new crunchy snack called Focaccia Sticks.
These tasty snacks are made from twice-baked focaccia bread that is lightly seasoned with natural herbs and spices. They are available in Roasted Garlic & Herb, Rosemary & Sea Salt, and Quattro Formaggio.
My suggestions for Focaccia Sticks:
· Jazz up your fruit and cheese platter by serving Focaccia Sticks –Try serving a platter of Rosemary & Sea Salt Focaccia Sticks, fresh pears and goat cheese
· A new vehicle for your favorite dip — Focaccia Sticks are hearty enough to hold your heaviest of dips. (I served them with the Sausage, Rotelle and Cheese dip I made a couple of weeks ago. Yum.)
· Use as croutons for salad or soup or in pasta. Try cooked salmon with whole wheat pasta, peas and spinach, a little olive oil, garlic and parmesan cheese. Crumble some Focaccia sticks for a nice crunch over top.
The generous folks from New York Style are giving away 3 prize packages including one bag of each flavor. Just leave a comment below by Tuesday, December 9th at 11:59pm, remember your contact information. The winner will be selected through Random.org.
