Ready, Set, Cook!

‘Tis the season’, well it’s almost the season. I just realized that Thanksgiving is actually next week and from there it’s a frenzy of cooking and baking throughout the month of December. Of course I have my favorite cookie recipes, but I’m alway on the quest for great new recipes for entertaining and gift giving.

Gourmet magazine is gone but there are still other great food publications. I was really impressed by December’s issue of Food & Wine and these are my picks for recipes to try in the next few weeks:

For Entertaining:

Tomato Tartlets
Boiled Shrimp with Spicy Mayonnaise
Lamb Pizzettes
Sausage Stuffed Peppadews
Curried Crab Dip
Mixed Mushroom Strudel
Brown Butter Cranberry Tart

There’s also a wonderful list of pairings of sparkling wines and cheeses.

For Gift Giving

Classic Butterscotch Sauce
Chocolate Dipped Vanilla Caramels
Chocolate Almond Toffee

And for Breakfast after all the cooking and partying:

Eggs Roasted in Tomato Sauce

Happy Cooking to one and all!
