This week on the Eat Savvy blog I shared a cute idea for St. Patrick’s Day that I thought you might be interested in. These are little pots of minty chocolate pudding, made with just a few common pantry ingredients. I liked this idea because it eliminated the typical fake green food colouring that is added to so many foods this time of year. Oh, and see the serving vessel? It’s a votive candleholder! If you don’t keep glass ramekins on hand (I don’t!) these are perfect for kid-sized portions and party foods. They cost about $3 for half a dozen or so, and I love to use them at dinner parties, for both the lighting options and the serving ones.
Two weeks ago I had the chance to chat with Chef Michael Smith about his newest project, a collection of webisodes he's prepared with Canadian Lentils and the Saskatchewan Pulse Growers. He was charming and fun to chat with and you can read more about his latest adventure here.
I was in desperate need of a shaker for my powdered sugar, so I fashioned one out of an old jam jar. A few nails hammered into the top created the holes I needed, and now it's one of my favourite new kitchen tools.
I’ve been working on the next edition of Party Savvy, and this time I found myself making a slew of themed paper cups. They were so fun to put together and I figure if all else fails, maybe I’ll have a career as a party cup designer. Ha!
Have a great day!
