Appetizer Party Class

Last night I taught another appetizer class. This was a first at one of the venues I sought out last spring.

Asparagus,Tomato and Mozzarella Salad

This phrase both excites and frightens me. How can that possibly be true? Simple, I love hosting but I have a hard time deciding on what to make and serve. There are so many simple dishes to make but then who wants to go the easy way? Not me! I am a glutton for punishment, … Continue reading
