Last Saturday, I made it just in time for Barbara Tenney’s savory appetizer demo at KaTom. The recipes were so quick and easy that I would consider trying to make them in the future. Here is a quick photo review.
First, I watched Barbara prepare the rosemary roasted cashews.
Fresh rosemary is essential for this appetizer.
You will use most of a container of cashews. We buy this container at Costco or Sam’s Club and they are fabulous!
The recipe is very easy: mix, stir, and bake. The aroma invited all KaTom customers to come over to the kitchen area.
It is one of the easiest appetizers to prepare for the holidays—or anytime.
Next, it was time to see the demo for parmesan and thyme crackers.
Chill the dough first. The secret is to use White Lily flour. That is always the best choice.
The directions are as simple as mix, roll, chill, cut, and bake. Voila!
The crackers do not ‘rise’ as a biscuit or roll; rather, they become warm and fragrant. I was surprised how light and tasty the crackers turned out and tried a couple more to make sure. So good!
KaTom has one more holiday demo this Saturday when Barbara Tenney will prepare New Year’s appetizers: overnight marinated shrimp and cheddar-stuffed mushrooms. One could easily envision those treats served on an elegant tray at a party so that will be a nice end to this holiday series. The demo starts at 11:00 so save me a seat at the counter!
