It’s getting to be that time of year. Soon the invitations will start filling your inbox and mailbox. It may be dinner or a cocktail party or even a fancy holiday party. Invariably you will be asked to bring something; either you’re given an assignment or you’ll be asked to come up with something on your own. I will tell you a secret. I get a little stressed out when this comes up. I always hope for dessert. It’s my thing. So to help ease my mind I make sure to have a nice bottle of wine or Champagne available, to bring. I also, have the ingredients to make a great appetizer; that travels well.
I keep cherry preserves, balsamic vinegar, Brie cheese and crackers. If all else fails you can take just cheese and crackers with some wine. However, here is a recipe that will dress it up and impress your host. Have a festive holiday season!
