Local Connecticut friends, this one is for you! This past weekend I stopped into Avon Prime Meats a local butcher and specialty store with a deli selection and catering! They carry everything from prime & premium choice beef, to produce and dairy – with a section stocked full of freshly prepared foods – ready to serve.
This is a super simple, SUPER yummy Maple Chex Mix recipe - a perfect party appetizer! I made it this past weekend for a Halloween party, it was too delicious not to share! A few extra tips: 1. Use gluten free pretzels to make this gluten free! 2. You can make this for any holiday or any season by using seasonal candy or spices! Ingredients: 1 box Rice Chex 1 box Corn Chex 3 cups pretzels 2 cups peanuts 3 cups popcorn (popped) 1 stick butter 4 teaspoons maple extract 1 cup brown sugar Instructions: In a big high-side baking pan, mix together the Chex, and pretzels...
Halloween is by far my favorite holiday (aside from my own birthday). I love the idea that for one night you can become anything from your wildest dreams of adventure - it gives a certain power to creativity and imagination (two things I live for!). With so many ideas and dreams for this particular party I sort of combined a mixture of ideas and themes.
Every event needs a cheese platter - a laid-back spring time backyard BBQ, Sunday football gathering, a Halloween party, Thanksgiving feast or a New Years Eve soirée, this platter idea can cater to any style gathering.
It’s spring and my house is filled with guests every weekend! I like to plan ahead and stock up on paper plates, utensils, serving dishes and napkins throughout the year. If I see something while traveling or on a regular shopping trip I purchase it and then store it away for when I need it. Party planning or even having a small dinner party can be so much fun, as long as you’re going about it the right way! Make like a Girl Scout / Boy Scout and “be prepared”!
