I don’t think baked brie is really affiliated with any holiday; it seems to show up whenever there is a party. But the pretty pink color of this Opal® Apple Cranberry Chutney was too lovely not to share for Valentine’s Day, especially since Opal Apples are in season right now.
I have a new appetizer for your Super Bowl party today, and I can’t believe I haven’t shared them with you yet: Bacon Cream Cheese Bites. Now before we talk about these gems, let’s set a few things straight. Our food on Garnish with Lemon is generally family-friendly and mostly healthy (with the exception of excessive chocolate or cheese here and there). I am a firm believer in balance and not elimination of any food group. These Bacon Cream Cheese Bites I’m sharing today are in no way, shape or form healthy, but they are family friendly and incredibly easy. It is a simple indulgence, and I know you will be thanking me for it later.
There are some foods that are simply synonymous with the Super Bowl. I’m talking wings, nachos, chili, pizza…the list goes on and on. But don’t forget the tried and true jalapeño popper in the midst of all that football food goodness. These little babies have been a mainstay at nearly every game day party I’ve ever attended, and they are always a crowd pleaser. So this recipe for Bacon & Apple Jalapeño Poppers may seem like a no-brainer to you. But adding a bit of tart Granny Smith apple and savory green onions to the mix takes these pops to a crazy addictive level.
Your favorite team may not make it to the big game in February, but that’s no reason not to celebrate football – and party food – at a Super Bowl soiree with friends and family. There is something for everyone in this delicious collection of munchies. So grab your plate and your place on the couch. It’s game time.
You know the appetizer that keeps you circling the table to see if there is one more to pop in your mouth? These Crispy Italian Ranch Cups are that appetizer.
The Super Bowl is coming up, and I love having people over to watch it. Not because of the game (or the commercials) per se, but because of the food. I love having an excuse to have appetizers as my main meal. Crispy Italian Ranch Cups are a fabulous addition to a party spread. I mean how can you go wrong with ooey, gooey cheese, ranch and Italian seasonings, and a crispy little phyllo cup? Truth is, you can’t. Plus they still taste great when they are room temperature. Pretty much the definition of perfect party food, at least in my book.
It’s the day after Christmas, but the end to our celebrating isn’t anywhere in sight. I don’t know about you, but I have consumed more than my fair share of calories over the last few days and have loved every minute of it. But since the parties continue, my appetizers need to take a slight shift in caloric intake. I was on a girls’ weekend recently, and one of my friends brought these yummy Apricots with Goat Cheese, Basil and Marcona Almonds. Um, Y-U-M. Why haven’t I had these before?
