by in Entertaining, Recipes, Shows, December 3rd, 2016

Cheese and Cracker HouseAt holiday parties big and small, cheese-and-cracker platters are practically required. You can keep them simple with just some slices of your favorite cheddar and kid-friendly crackers, or you can dress them up, offering an array of fresh and funky cheeses and various trimmings. You can even ditch the platter notion altogether and instead opt for home construction when building your cheese-and-cracker setup, like the co-hosts of The Kitchen did on this morning’s all-new episode. With four walls, a stable roof and even pepperoni shingles, their Cheese-and-Cracker House is the ultimate in party-ready edible entertainment, sure to keep your guests chatting as they pick away at its exterior and interior.

Easy, Cheesy Appetizers Your Holiday Guests Will Hover Around

by in Holidays, Recipes, December 1st, 2016

Bacon Ranch Cream Cheese WellingtonSome people like receiving gifts. Others? They’d be quite pleased with one thing and one thing only: cheese — lots and lots of cheese. When family and friends converge at your place this holiday season, these are the cheesy appetizers you should greet them with.

Think of Melissa d’Arabian’s Bacon Ranch Cream Cheese Wellington (pictured above) as a cross between baked Brie en croute and a cream cheese log. After covering a bar of cream cheese in ranch dressing, chopped bacon and green onions, wrap it up in store-bought puff pastry and bake. It’s a flaky, oozing appetizer that’s elegant enough for entertaining, but the bacon and ranch flavors mean kids will love it too.

12 Lunches You Can Pack in a Thermos

by in Recipes, November 28th, 2016

Kid-Friendly Pasta SaladAt the first sign of frost, it’s time to whip out the thermoses and start filling them with as many hearty, warming lunches as possible. (Yes, that’s right. You can put more than just drinks in those things.) I often rely on two categories of thermos-friendly dishes — pasta and soup — to get the job done. Read on to get some of my favorite recipes for both.

Pasta

I love a dish like this one from The Pioneer Woman because it can be served at room temperature, which means there’s no need to fill the thermos with hot water in the morning.

3 Ways to Infuse Cocktail Flavors Into Party-Time Snack Mixes

by in Recipes, Shows, November 26th, 2016

Bloody Mary Cocktail Snack MixChips and dip, carrots and ranch, maybe a fruit platter — these are all fine party starters. They’re great ones, actually. But when it comes to holiday parties, sometimes we like to up the appetizer ante a bit, all while keeping it casual and easy, of course. On this morning’s all-new episode of The Kitchen, the co-hosts introduced a trio of snack mixes that are the kind of next-level recipes that will transform your seasonal spreads. Combining two party-time favorites — booze and bites — the co-hosts made three cocktail-inspired snack recipes that range from savory and salty to sweet and oh so crunchy. Read on below to find out how they turned a Bloody Mary, a White Russian and a tequila-based cocktail into eat-with-your-hands nibbles. (Spoiler: It all comes down to spiking, pouring and mixing.)

Bloody Mary Cocktail Snack Mix

The flavors you know and love in a classic Bloody Mary are well-represented in this big-batch mash-up of rice cereal, bagel chips and pretzels. Just as tomato juice and vodka form the base of the drink, this snack mix is made with tomato paste and vodka, plus a few splashes of Worcestershire sauce, which deliver the salty, deeply umami flavor you love in a Bloody Mary. Once the mixture is warmed, it’s poured over the munchies, which get microwaved for just a few minutes so the flavors can marry.

What Do Food Network Staffers Eat the Night Before Thanksgiving?

by in Holidays, Recipes, November 22nd, 2016

It’s no secret that Thanksgiving requires a ton of preparation, from planning the menu and shopping for ingredients to ensuring the bird, side dishes and dessert turn out exactly the way you want them. For many of us, that means getting a head start on planning — sometimes as far as a month in advance. If any night is the most critical, it’s the night before, when many Americans will bake pies and prepare reheatable dishes, like casseroles and soups, so that Thursday morning doesn’t dissolve into chaos. Once those tasks are finished, we’re left with little time to figure out dinner on Thanksgiving eve. What do most people eat? Takeout Chinese? Quick pantry pasta? We polled Food Network staffers to find out what exactly they’re planning to rustle up the night before the big feast. Some of the answers might surprise you!
