Hey party lovers, are you excited for 2018? I sure am!! 

Even though I have high expectations for 2018 and am hoping for a year of prosperity, joy and blessing...I'm not one to really go to town with parties on New Year's Eve, I have to admit.

Smoked Salmon Vol-au-Vent Baked Eggs Recipe

Smoked Salmon Vol-au-Vent Baked Eggs Recipe

Following from last week's brunch post , and as promised; here's my recipe for Vol-au-vent Baked Eggs. Baked eggs is something I've pick up in France ( œufs cocotte ), and it's a great way to serve eggs for an occasion such as brunch, because you can get all the yummy flavors and fun of the egg (yes, eggs are fun!) without the 'slaving over a hot stove' factor.

Party Food | Gourmet Polenta Bologenese Cups Recipe

Being from Italian descent, I grew up with polenta. And one of my fave dishes is creamy polenta with Bolognese sauce and generous sprinkles of Parmesan on top. SO yum!! So naturally, when thinking up delicious appetizers for our end of year parties , I turn to my Italian roots. And polenta usually figures in some shape or form, in the array of bite-size delights I serve time and time again... It's like bringing a little bit of Italy to my table :)

Party Food | Italian Sausage & Ravioli Appetizer Recipe

Italian food has a very special place in my heart due to my Italian roots. To me, it's more than food - it means love, comfort, family values, tradition... I still remember to this day, being in awe of my grandmother's pasta-making skills , in her kitchen cutting tagliatelle with a  knife, dusting them with semolina and hanging them to dry on a  broomstick made by my granddad!

Come New Year I'm all partied out to be honest, so don't fancy slaving away in the kitchen to create a hoard of food for my cocktail party.
