Like most people, the first thing I think about when hosting or being invited to a game day party is the food. To be honest, I don’t even know the rules of football or who plays on what team. I don’t care about half time, especially this year, and only a portion of the multi million famed commercials grab my attention. All I care about are the snacks.

Manchego Quince On A Stick:

Oh my GAWD!!!! I think I just died and went to cheese heaven. For the first time in my life I had Manchego Quince on a stick. It’s the first time because I’ve never seen them anywhere else in my time on earth. I was sitting home getting ready for the football game and wanted a batch of mozzarella sticks, but then thought it boring. “The same ol cheese sticks again?” is exactly what ran through my mind. Instead I jumped into action and paired my beloved manchego cheese with quince fruit paste, a flavor combination typically intertwined in Spain. Quince fruit paste goes by the Spanish name Membrillo, and is becoming very easy to find in bigger supermarkets and Mexican boutique markets. Once I settled on the flavor, I breaded the manchego quince stacks and fried them to a golden crisp. (more…)

My cousin Justine and her roommate are insane soccer lovers.  Their favorite team is Mexico, actually during the current soccer matches they have several teams they will be rooting for as it is a process of elimination.  My cousin is interested in celebrating her favorite sport this year by having a soccer viewing party.  There’s only one problem, she’s never had people over to entertain before.  She’s a bit nervous about it but I told her I’d help her with her big soccer entertaining debut. Cost Plus World Market is this Summer of Soccer shopper’s one-stop shop and they would cover all her entertainment needs with foods from around the globe, dish-ware, and gorgeous decor. This gathering was sure to impress her friends and her roommate. (more…)

It’s funny how quickly time flies. Last summer, I was in Italy absorbing the culture and of course eating lots of amazing food, grabbing anything I thought would be a delicious discovery. I remember sitting on the coast of the Tyrrhenian Sea at a little outdoor cafe and ordering a bag filled with beer battered veggies and fries served with a cold beer. I had never seen anything quite like it back here in the United States and was ready to adopt this new treat. (more…)

I enjoy hosting people over at my house, but as you know hosting requires serving, cleaning up, pouring drinks, changing the music selection and so forth. Sometimes you get so wound up in attending to people that you actually don’t have time to sit down and enjoy your company. (more…)

I’m a mom. A mom that tries to satisfy everyone in my family. If you follow me on social media or here on my blog you know my son is a strawberry fanatic. He is extremely picky with the quality of strawberries and will not allow them to pass his lips if they are not red to the stem or even slightly bruised. With this type of inspection going on we have bought strawberries grown around the planet in search of what is ideal to his tastes. He has finally nailed down that he prefers strawberries grown here in his homestate of California. (more…)

Food On The Go: I got portable deconstructed nachos on my list of things to do this week. My son recently joined a little league baseball team, which in turn means this little mama will be spending way more time at the park. I’m not the biggest fan of the eats at the concession stand so I make sure to pack something that will make me happy while I take in the game. (more…)
