Green Bean Salad

This past weekend I had the pleasure to cater a wedding! One of the side dishes I made was a cold green bean salad  served with a lemon vinaigrette and golden/red grape tomato. This was great as a cold side dish to add some texture and flavor contrast to the deep, rich, fall  flavors from the rest of the menu.

To make this plate:

All you need to do is shock the green beans ( add them into boiling water for about 5 mins take them out and place them in ice water)

Make a lemon Vinaigrette

Slice grape tomatos in half

Sprinkle lemon zest on top of salad and mix together.

Thanks for reading!

Apple Season Part 1

Hello Readers,

Today I am sharing with you the first of many apple desserts to come this season. Now this is something we have made before called apple dumplings. I find this treat to be a unique twist on eating apples through out the season, I mean who doesn’t love pastry crust, warm spices, brown sugar, butter and tart apples in September! The recipe is simple and I follow a great one from the food network, but you can make it even more simple by buying pre made pastry dough. Here are some fun pictures and a quick video of my sister attempting to core apples.

The replacement

Hello All,

Recently I had a small event that I catered and the dish I got the most feedback on was actually not on the original menu. I replaced a more complex dish with stuffed mushrooms, a last minuet decision made while out shopping because the store was out of stock of what I was originally looking for. Now stuffed mushrooms are delicious on their own but, I was honestly worried because as it was not as planned out as the other plates were. The amazing reviews about the mushrooms reminded me that cooking is an expression of love, and as long as people can taste the love I put in my food, I do not have to fear the outcome.

Happy Friday!
