Christmas is About Eating, right?
For Christmas Eve I was in charge of bringing a few appetizers and a dessert to my sis-in-law's. These are the dishes I brought. Three of them come from the kraft What's Cooking magazine ( I just love it, it's free and has fabulous recipes!). The recipes can also be found online at Kraft Canada, just enter the name of the dish in the search engine!
The one pictured above is called Green Chile Roll-ups. I substituted jalepenos for the chiles and sun dried tomato tortillas for the whole wheat ones, just to be a little more festive and add some more heat to the dish!
Fruit Salsa and Cinnamon Chips:
This one is not from Kraft Canada, I have made it a few times now and forget where the original recipe came from. You basically take 1 can of crushed pineapples and add other finely chopped fruit( this time I added peaches,apples, and mandarins, it changes depending on the season) and two heaping spoons of brown sugar, put in fridge. Meanwhile brush white tortillas with water and sprinkle with cinnamon and sugar, cut each circle into 8-10 triangles, place on cookie sheet and cook at 350' for about 10 minutes. Cool on cooling racks, serve with salsa!
Hot Artichoke- Parmesan Dip (from Kraft):
First time making an artichoke dip and it turned out great!
Shrimp Ring with Seafood Sauce (bought at M&M Meats):
I love shrimp rings!
Chocolate-Peppermint Striped Delight (from Kraft):
A so-easy, so-yummy dessert!! Made with candy canes, cream cheese, and chocolate pudding....Delicious!
Hope everyone had a fabulous Christmas surrounded by family and friends!! All the best in the New Year!
