What party would be complete without a cheese plate, and what could be better than a warm, baked brie!!! It definitely makes a comforting cold-weather addition to your next soiree. While some recipes serve up the gooey goodness in puff pastry, this version takes an even simpler approach, with just four ingredients to spread atop accompanying crackers or crostini...come on who doesn't love easy?!?!
I don't know if I am just really hungry but the maple-pecan-topped wedge just looks so incredibly yummy that I think I am going to have to make this appie for my hubby's bday celebration tomorrow evening

New Year's Resolution #1: Low Calorie Cocktails
Another high-calorie monster, the margarita was long overdue for a makeover. Whittle down the calories in this happy hour classic by leaving out the Cointreau (saving 95 calories per ounce) and adding a powerful punch of wasabi powder. Her (Ruhe) clever spin on this go-to is unexpected and guilt-free.
1 teaspoon wasabi powder
3/4 ounce lime juice
1 ounce light agave nectar, such as Wholesome Sweeteners
1 3/4 ounces Tequila blanco
Salt rim of a margarita glass. In a shaker add all of the ingredients with ice. Shake vigorously for 30 seconds and then strain over fresh ice into glass.
In 2012, brides will look to be transformed on their big day and they will make their day an extension of their personal individuality. According to one of our wedding community's members, Streetlight Republic Photography¸“2012 is all about Romance. Lace. Ruffles. Princesses. The scenery and props of Pride and Prejudice combined with Cinderella’s wedding gown and horse drawn carriage (maybe not a pumpkin though) would be right on trend." Here is a little preview of what Streetlight Republic Photography expects to see this coming year:
"Deck the halls with be boughs of holly, fa, la, la, la!" Serve these us as your signature cocktail for your Holiday Party this weekend and everyone will be singing, "Tis the Season to be Jolly!"
4 oz Korbel® Sweet Rose
1 oz Chambord Flavored Vodka
2 oz Cranberry-Apple Juice
Shake vodka and juice with ice and strain into a chilled wine glass. Top with champagne and garnish with a strawberry slice.
