This tutorial popped up in my blog reader a couple weeks ago, and it made for a quick gift for some teachers and neighbors. The instructions come with printable labels and directions, and it was a great project to do with my girls. We made a batch in our own kitchen this past weekend too - gotta test them out, right?
A friend and I also got together recently and spent most of the day making a big batch of dutch croquettes, a yummy meat filled and battered delicacy. We hope to get together in the new year to do some more cooking for our freezers. I love being able to pull something quick and easy out of the freezer for dinner on a busy day.
I grew up with a professional caterer for a Mom, so our kitchen was food-safe, complete with inspections from the occasional health authority. I know the rules about wiping down the counters, disinfecting sinks, handling meat, and cross-contaminating foods. I'd like to think that I have a food-safe kitchen in my house now, but I do like to rely on my antibacterial cloths and Lysol® wipes to ensure the job gets done. Today I'll be making some appetizers for a New Year's celebration and I'd like to wish everyone a safe and Happy New Year's tonight!
