Dinner 24: Hearty Holiday Feast, Dinners

A Red, Green and Pewter Holiday Table

No Comments 12 December 2012

It’s only once a year that we can break out the red and green check table linens, and adorn our table with a pewter-heavy setting – so we look forward to it with a sense of eagerness and enthusiasm reserved just for the occasion. The holidays are such a joyous time of year – spirits are lifted, there’s a special mood in the air, and decorations abound wherever you go.

We recently hosted a four-course holiday themed dinner, complete with the gorgeous red, green and pewter table you see below. We raided the Didriks store, and put together a stunning table with some of our favorite holiday pieces. We took dinnerware pieces from the Match Pewter Viviana collection, and used a variety of Match stemware and other table accents to finish the table. We also used festive Libeco Home linens to dress up the table even more.

Homemade Cheddar Cheese Crackers

Cheezt-It’s are a popular kids snack, but adults don’t generally enjoy them. Somehow, that doesn’t seem fair!  So I set out to create a more sophisticated version of those buttery, flaky crackers that adults can enjoy.

These crackers are definitively homemade and so very delicious. I used extra sharp cheddar, which made for extreme flavor-packed crackers. They’re nicely crispy and oh-so-buttery, with a bite from the freshly ground pepper. I also added in a touch of mustard powder to even further enhance the flavor. Continue Reading

Strawberry Ganache-filled Chocolate Cupcakes with Vanilla Buttercream

No Comments 24 September 2012

These cupcakes were such a sweet ending to a wonderful meal. At first glance, you’d think the strawberries are missing – but fear not, they’re just tucked inside! To pull together our strawberry-themed affair, I figured we needed a really fantastic dessert that would blow everything else out of the water. And so became these cupcakes!

The recipe begins with a basic chocolate cupcake recipe. The cupcakes baked up beautifully, but within minutes of being removed from the oven, they all collapsed! I am partial to cupcakes with nicely round domed tops, so this was a bit disappointing at first sight – but after tasting one that had accidentally broken, all doubts were gone. The cupcakes were great! Ultra soft and tender, with a generous crumb, and a smooth chocolate flavor. Continue Reading

Dinner 21: A Strawberry Summer

No Comments 07 September 2012

Today is an exciting day here on Dinner Series — we have a new Dinner Series event post to share! This is a particularly special Dinner Series, because it was the first one I ever got to take part in. I haven’t formally introduced myself, but my name is Taryn and I am the (new) voice behind Dinner Series. I started writing for this blog a couple of months ago, but this was my first Dinner Series so it seemed the appropriate time to introduce myself to you.

I was fortunate enough not only to attend this event, but to cook all of the food for it – and what a smashing success it was! I’ll recap the event and the recipes over a series of separate posts, but today I’ll be sharing an overview of the stunning setting and the delicious menu.
