Pepper Parmesan Crisps Recipe

Pepper Parmesan Crisps Recipe | CatchMyParty.com

As the holidays approach, Strongbow hard cider asked us to come up with a second party food pairing (our first pairing was our quick and easy aioli recipe).

We chose to pair our pepper parmesan crisps recipe with the hard cider because we love the combination of apples and cheese. The cider brings a tangy, tart, appley-flavor, and the cheese brings a salty, unctuous richness that stands up well to the sharpness in the cider. Both play off each other effortlessly.

Quick and Easy Aioli Recipe

Quick and Easy Aioli Recipe | CatchMyParty.com

I was asked by Strongbow to come up with a recipe that would pair well with the flavors in their hard apple cider. When I think of drinking hard ciders, with their warm apple-y bite, I think about hanging out with friends on a winter day in big, bulky sweaters (maybe that's what I'm thinking about right now because it's cold and cloudy here in Northern California). So I wanted to come up with something that would work well for a casual winter get-together.

I love serving French fries when I entertain because... everyone loves French fries. Honestly, do you know anyone who doesn't? But to elevate them, I like to serve them with unique and flavorful dipping sauces. So enter my quick and easy aioli recipe!

California Cosmopolitan Cocktail Recipe

by Jillian Leslie on

We were asked by DeKuyper to come up with a signature cocktail that would be fun to serve during the holidays. Most people think of eggnog or peppermint as their Christmas flavors of choice, but when I think winter... I think citrus!

I love the sweet and tangy flavors citrus brings to a drink, and since I am a California girl (by way of New Jersey), I wanted to create a California cosmopolitan cocktail recipe that highlights the relaxed, casual, West Coast lifestyle and would brighten up any holiday party.

Candied Orange Slice Recipe

Candied Orange Slice Recipe | CatchMyParty.com

If you're serving cake this holiday, and need to save time, do what I did here. Buy a white cake at the grocery store, and add some homemade touches like candied orange slices and I promise your guests will be impressed.

Making these candied orange slices was super easy. The only thing you need to be aware of is that your orange slices need time to dry, like two hours in a warm oven. Other than that, there's really nothing to it and the candied orange slices were delicious -- sweet, tangy, and chewy. They're definitely great for cake decorating, but you can serve them on their own as a candied treat, and your guests will eat them up!
