I hosted a celebration for a good friend at home with members of my family and the birthday guest. Family, friends, a good meal, wine and laughter. You cannot ask for more.
VODKA – SAKE – TINI + IRISH SMOKED SALMON – FLAVORED CREME FREICHE ATOP A TOASTED SESAME SUSHI CRACKER
Our Creative Cooking Crew April challenge was to pair a cocktail with a canapé. Easier said than done as I like my wine and rarely touch strong liquor except for sake and vodka on occasions.

JANUARY CHALLENGE: Repurposing Leftovers or How Many Meals Can You Get From One.
Our Creative Cooking Crew’s October challenge: It’s Halloween. What’s in your cauldron?
Trick or treat? horror film-inspired? creepy dishes? black and orange? Interpret it as you like.

This is recipe was sent to me by Paulding & Company, a full catering kitchen based in San Francisco boasting vast opportunities for bonding and excitement founded by mother-daughter duo Tracy and Terry Paulding.
These days I am always looking for healthy meals and lots of veggies. While surfing the net, I came across this recipe from Bon Appetit.
