Panini BOOffet Halloween Party

Tuesday, November 1st, 2011
My roommate Amber Robinson and I both love fall and holidays and wanted to do a Halloween themed party…but we didn’t have time to do all of the work Test Nest style. I was looking through a booklet of Panini recipes and it hit me…lets do a Panini buffet…so the 1st Annual Panini BOOffet was born. Yep, it was that good and easy that it will become a yearly event. We had a great time, everyone brought an ingredient and we made Pumpkin Chili and Pumpkin Swirl Cheesecake to go alonRead More....

My testers were Amneris Pascasu, Marcus Bowers, Daniel and Megan Parker who did some great publicity for me and brought friends John, Dani and April. It was great to meet new friends and welcome them into my home. Since it was a Saturday night we all sat back, relaxed and enjoyed the food and company. We talked and talked and covereRead More....

Apple S’Mores

Saturday, October 16th, 2010
The October issue of the Food Network Magazine had a calendar page called "An Apple A Day" with 31 ways to add apples to your daily meals. I loved this feature since many of the suggestions sounded fantastic to me and made me really excited for Fall. One idea in particular would only be fun with friends. My friend Mala and I recently took a trip to DC to visit Hillary and had Darla join us on Sunday for our night snack. We made Apple S'mores, a fall twistRead More....
