Well guys, it's been a long time coming, but I'm finally working on the new ColorMeKevin.com. Creating a new site is a ton of work, but I'm hoping that the new site will be more function and user friendly than the old site. I'll also be able to add new pages quite a bit easier. If you enjoy the site, consider signing up for a user name and password. If you log in, you'll be able to contact me, comments on posts...I may even make it so that some frequent users can add content. Enjoy the new ColorMeKevin! Please be sure to follow me on FACEBOOK, TWITTER & PINTEREST.
I LOVE entertaining. Here are some of my favorite tried and true recipes. Please enjoy them and share! Send me your pics of what you make!
Though I don't drink a ton, when I entertain, I like to keep the drinks flowing. Here you'll find a variety of drinks, from sweet to dry, strong to virgin. Try them out! They're all good!
In a quest to find a recipe comparable to Marsha Brown's Crab Cheesecake, I've turned to Emril to see how his recipe stacks up. I'll let you know how it is when I finally make it. Original recipe here.
I haven't had a chance to try this recipe, but it's to use as a side sauce with the Crab Cheesecake. "Can be served with my Shrimp-Eggplant Beignets or Fried fish. You can toss cooked shrimp in to make a shrimp salad. This is a spicy crunchy sauce. Cook time is chill time." Originally from Food.com
Another recipe I haven't tried yet. I pulled this Emril recipe to go with the Crab Gouda Cheesecake.
There is a lovely restaurant in New Hope, PA called Marsha Brown. It's on the main strip, and located in an old church. Whenever I visit new hope, I make it a point to drop in and grab the Crab Cheesecake appetizer with a glass of wine. It is absolutely incredible! I've been scouring the internet trying to find a recipe for it, but haven't found many. This recipe looks simple - and though I haven't tried it yet, I have a feeling it's going to be a pretty close match. Emiril has a recipe as well, but it's a lot more complicated....
In the office, I was speaking to my cousin Evan about the honey my bees in Elkton, MD make. The honey is absolutely amazing! Evan was telling me about a new recipe he made with it, and though I haven't had it myself, it sounds awesome....so here it is. Thanks Evan! (Photo shows Asian lettuce wraps Evan made with this sauce recipe)
Recipe yields 3/4 cup.
Very similar to the Cucmber martini. My friend Joe and I went with our friends Amanda and Max to their good friends Gallery display in Philadelphia. Before heading over, Joe grabbed a bottle of Cucmber Vodka from the liquor store, and we got on our way to pick up Max and Amanda. When we arrived, Amanda was having a bit of liqeur Cote Jolie. It's very similar to St. Germain. but not quite as sweet and with a slightly different flavor. She bottled some up to take to the gallery party and we were on our way!
This is my version of a guacamole recipe taken from an OLD Better Home and Gardens recipe book. There was a section for "great "game" party" recipes, meant for things like the Superbowl, etc. GREAT Guacamole Recipe! For years, I omitted the onion all together, but I think I'm going to start putting in a small amount of finely chopped red onion.
