It's the day after Christmas, and if your holidays were as hectic as mine — with tons of time spent in the kitchen — you've probably got lots of leftovers. However, I know not everyone is a fan of leftovers, so I'm wondering what your cooking plan for today is: will you eat leftovers or make something new and different? Or perhaps you're so sick of cooking that you'll go out?
This question was posed the other day on Twitter by Kristy of GeekSugar, and it is indeed a very tight race. Goldfish are less fattening, but Cheez-Its are undeniably cheesier in flavor. Kristy maintains it's an East Coast versus West Coast thing. I'm on the Left Coast, but in my mind, there's no contest: Cheez-Its win. Thank goodness that our office is stocked with both.
Many people are proclaiming pie to be the next big thing, and according to Google trends, pie is beating out both cupcakes and bacon as the trendiest food topic. While I love pie, when it comes to a showstopping celebratory dessert, I prefer cake. That's why I'm serving cake at my Christmas dinner. How about you? Which do you enjoy more?
You may not think there's much of a difference between stovetop and baked macaroni and cheese, but really, there is! The stovetop version, like the childhood classic from the blue box, is wonderfully creamy. Oven-baked macaroni and cheese, on the other hand, has an addictive cheesy and crispy topping. I like my mac and cheese piping hot from the oven. How about you?
Chocolate truffles are essential to the holiday season, and while there's nothing like opening a beautifully wrapped box of store bought truffles, I also enjoy the process of making the rich treats at home. Which kind do you prefer eating?
Pairing wines with Thanksgiving dinner can be a tough (and controversial!) task. Some swear by a fruity and light Pinot Noir or Beaujolais Nouveau, while others wouldn't dream of drinking anything but a crisp white with their turkey and taters. How about you?
