The Way You Look Tonight

Simple, bold flavors liven up tailgating festivities right away. When time is short & something a little more sophisticated than the standard game day dip is in order, Blue Cheese-Pecan Spread takes to the field offering speedy preparation time & zippy flavors. This versatile superstar is perfect for parties at home or it can be packed in a container for a travel-friendly option. Be certain to nestle in a cooler filled with ice to make transporting easy & safe. Pack a small wooden board, a white ramekin, an heirloom silver cheese knife & a few strings of miniature bunting for a lovely dose of charm that can be styled quickly under the tent upon arrival. A fine selection of crackers & bright, colorful crudités completes the look for a beautiful nibble that the ladies especially, are sure to appreciate.

How To Zest Fresh Citrus

A little lemon zest is a wonderful way to add fresh notes to appetizer spreads.
Pep up a variety of your favorite foods with this easy technique.

Hold the microplane grater over a cutting board, allowing the tip to rest over the surface at an angle. Swipe just the outer portion of the citrus over the tool towards the board. Turn the fruit after each swipe. You only want to collect zest with color & not the white, bitter pith just underneath the surface. Repeat the process until you have collected the amount you’d like to add to the recipe.
