There are no shortages of special occasions that might require a more elegant menu this time of year. Since I’ve been asked to tape another guest chef appearance next month, and they requested I make a holiday and/or special occasion recipe, I thought I’d come up with some ideas, and let YOU decide which one you
would like to see me make? Let me know what looks good to you and why in the comment section below, and be entered to win a copy of my mini eBook Party Accomplished! Share this blog post on facebook and Twitter for more entires (limit 3 entries per person). I’ll put the name of each entry in a hat, and Tatjana will be here to draw the winners name on December 15th! If you already have a copy of the book, I will be happy to email
it to anyone on your gift list you would like to send it to. As for which menu will I cook on the show, I can’t make any promises since ultimately the decision will be made by the producer, but I’m sure she would be as interested as I am to hear your thoughts. Here are my top contenders….
Roasted Mixed Vegetables
Horseradish Mashed Potatoes
Seared Duck Breast with Cherry-Pomegranate Sauce
Stir-Fried Cabbage, Carrots, Peppers & Mushrooms
Cinnamon Rice Blend Pilaf
Apricot-Pecan Stuffed Roast Pork Loin with Apricot Sauce
Maple Glaze Brussels Sprouts & Pancetta Hash
Smashed Carrots Tinged with Orange & Herbs
