Baked Ham Balls

Many many years ago, I was a horribly fussy eater. I didn't even like meatballs. How could I not like meatballs? Well, I had a deep fear of my mom trying to sneak mushrooms, or God forbid... cream of mushroom soup into anything I would eat. It was absolutely forbidden for any mushroom fragment to touch my food. If anything was suspicious, I would do a full dissection on it until I knew for a fact that they were not trying to pull one over on me! But, when Mom would make her Baked Ham Balls…

Party Food at I ♥ Cooking Club - Caramelized Chicken Wings

Tis the Season for parties and coincidentally, is also the theme at I ♥ Cooking Club! While we are not social creatures and haven't been to a party in years and years...if I did have a party I would want to serve these wings. They are super easy to make and a natural finger food at a buffet. Plus they taste soooo good. Caramelized Chicken Wings 3 pounds (1.5kg) chicken wings, wing tip removed ¼ cup (60ml) sherry vinegar 1 teaspoon caster (superfine) sugar sea salt flakes sour cream dressing…

When Brandied Eggnog gives you a buzz..... counter with Donna Hay's Quiche ♥

We are late getting the tree up. I guess. We have never adhered to a particular schedule or planned which day we would decorate. This was the first year I thought we may not do it at all......but...we were motivated by drinks and foods and the promise of a good time. The idea was to make all sorts of appetizers and I honestly don't know why that fell apart. Poor planning on my part, that's what I am thinking. We started with rich eggnog liberally laced with brandy and a sprinkle of nutmeg…

Party Food! Bacon Wrapped Shrimp, Artichoke Risotto and Corn Fritters

I knew I'd get your attention with bacon AND shrimp combined. Even vegetarians love bacon.......have you ever noticed the soy bacon in the grocery store? BAcon....I love saying it. Yes, over this new year's weekend we had a party. Of two. The way we like it most times. If my son and his wife could have joined us that would have been nice too but overall.....we just aren't big on crowds. So anyhoo, while the prep for some of this chow was in the works, Doug was able to go out with his…

What could be better than prime rib infused with an awesome garlicky flavor? Prime Rib: King Of Roasts This cut is called the “King of Roasts” for several reasons.
