Potatoes are a favorite for family dishes and they are not just delicious but also healthy.

These are reasons enough apart from others for you to include potatoes in your dinner and you can do it in a variety of ways. Eat delicious and keep healthy this spring with potatoes.
Katie Cavuto Boyle, who appears in the US Potato Board’s educational video series “Seven Potato Types”, is a chef and a Registered Dietitian and shares with us her brand new recipes of potato salad, recipes that are just perfect for this spring.

The fourth season of Worst Cooks in America is all set to be premiered on world television. The show will feature two superstar chefs, Anne Burrell and Bobby Flay. The show attempts to turn kitchen zeroes into kitchen heroes. The concept of the show is a unique one. Previous three seasons have been a huge success and the fourth one is expected to gain even more popularity and TRP.
The format of the show calls for fourteen participants, divided into two teams. One will be led by Anne Burrell and the other by Bobby Flay. The competition will be spread over a period of seven weeks, with one episode broadcasted once a week on every sunday. After seven episodes of tough competitions, one out of the fourteen cooking-challenged contestants will take home the grand prize of $25,000. This winner will be chosen on the basis of achieving the most successful culinary transformation during the season. The victory will also be of the leader of the team to which the winning contestant would belong to.
Burrell has been the undefeated series champion of the show. It will be a tough ask for culinary master Bobby Flay to come up with something extraordinary to win this season’s show. It will be a rematch between the two masters. The last time they had competed, Burrell won the battle comprehensively. Once again, the battle will be to transform kitchen disasters into food masters, not an easy task by any means. The first episode will be premiered on Sunday, February 17th at 9pm ET/PT.

Today even levering af sodavand (The Danish Word For “Supply Of Soda”) information can be found online. No longer are the different drink companies the only ones that one has to resort to when seeking a regular supplier of drinks. There are independent suppliers who pick up drinks and beverages as per popular demand from the respective companies and they supply to the clients as per their demand. One can easily look up information on such suppliers in their region. It is best to look up reviews too in order to ascertain as to who has been around in this business for a long time and has gained a favorable name in return. There are different factors that one needs to consider when one is picking up a name of such a supplier.
Proximity Of Operations
No matter how great and reliable a supplier of drinks may be, they will tend to be expensive for one when one’s premises are located at a great distance from the region where one operates. Many such drinks supply companies or logistics vendors have international presence. They have transportation options in different counties and supply to every region as per local prices. One can avail of such suppliers if their prices and service levels are reasonable. One has to find their budget to be the guiding factor in this matter. It is best to opt for a local supplier when one has medium level of demand which can be easily fulfilled by a local person. That way, the costs fall cheaper than opting for an international logistics brand.
Kind Of Drinks Opted For
When one has to cater to a local canteen or a school cafeteria where the requirements mainly comprise of soda water, bottled water and soft drinks, then one need to look up such suppliers accordingly. Again, some suppliers have the option for cold and hard drinks as well. When one is running a restaurant or a catering business, tying up with such a supplier would prove of use. The internet provides reviews of the local suppliers in one’s area. For a reliable supply company visit Sluktoersten.dkRead More
The day is all said and done, and you’re stuffed to your own giblets with those of our feathered, fowl friends. Some people are ready for their Black Friday shopping, others are lapsing into a food coma while “the big game” plays, and even more have just gone to other family members (or those of a significant other) for more of the bountiful “nourishment”.
Chances are, you’re (over)stocked on leftovers from the day… and just doing a plate of the leftovers is acceptable, but boring. What meals can you make with the leftovers, trying something different?
Really, this is more dressing than anything. Craft a traditional hamburger patty, and acquire a bun, but leave the toppings to the leftovers. A slice of turkey, a dollop of stuffing, and cranberry dressing instead of ketchup adds a nice sweet tartness instead of the tomato taste traditional. You might not want to put cheese on this beast, or even any veggies, but the burger should be filling enough as is.
Grab some pizza crust, spread cranberry sauce as you would marinara (this is one of the few situations where naturally cranberry sauce is more suited for the task than the inexplicably delicious can of jelled), and break up whatever toppings you would like, primarily turkey (or ham, if you’re that family). If you want to go a little adventurous, roll up some stuffing in the crust akin to a stuffed-crust pizza, minus the cheese. Do you actually want a cheese on this? Try provolone or swiss; regular mozzarella isn’t the best pairing with turkey, or even try goat cheese, as it pairs well with both the sauce and the meat. Cooking should only last as long as it takes the crust to harden; with everything else cooked, you’re really just heating up leftovers on an edible plate.
No, not “pine cones”. Take whatever pie du jour you had for the event, and crush it, smush it, and shove it into an ice cream cone. Save some of the pie crust for a crumbly topping to place on top of this room-temperate or warm ice cream cone dish. It varies up your dessert with minimal effort, and presents it in a new and unique way.
The Turkey Sandwich, Bowl, Taco, Whatever
This is a tradition, and really doesn’t need much explanation. Take some loaf bread, sub bread, or even some leftover rolls, cut it open, and pour in the ingredients you want. You can do the same with a basic bowl, taco shells, or any sort of food-carrying device, edible or not. Skip the plate and go straight for finger-food or a fork, and just scoop it all together.
Take a look at your fridge, and with a little bit of creativity, you can enjoy the same old meal in a new light, with only a bit of creativity.

Christmas is the time when people look to meet their old friends and mates. Often we see people catering Christmas parties or julefrokost catering (as called in Danish) and enjoying the occasion by coming together. However, it is a very cumbersome process for the hosts. Right from the venue to the food selection and so on. There are a number of things that the host has to go through when it comes to cater a very grand celebration like Christmas. Budgeting, the most basic step shall be done very carefully and much more important part than budgeting is to stick to it.
The next comes the invitee’s part. One should make sure that the invitation has sent way ahead of event so that people can have enough time to make other plans flexible by proponing or by postponing it. This is also a time where people look to go out for a holiday and therefore the selection shall be made wisely. The very next thing that the host shall consider in order to add perfection to his catering of Christmas celebration is to select the venue and fix the menu. Venue certainly depends upon the budget of the party.
There are also some parties or get together that are held at very small places and on some occasions also at the house. One should keep in mind that it is not the lust of the party but it is about how much quality time can people spend along with their dear ones and therefore the venue should be selected according to the budget. People should also take care that the management they hire should be skillful enough to manage everything smoothly right from the decoration to the food, and there shall be no occasions that adds negative values to the catering idea of the host.

Finding the perfect gift can often be a challenging task. There are lots of factors to take into account depending on who you’re buying for and what the occasion is. Here are a few gift ideas for those foodie lovers.
These are a great option as quite often, you can hand pick the various items you’d like to include. However if you’re pushed for time, there are also a great selection of pre-made hamper packages like these online cheese hampers from Clearwater. Other hampers you can choose from include themed gifts based on different countries and occasions. The Scottish hamper for example contains delicious edibles such as smoked salmon and shortbread.
Wine Tasting Experience Days
Another great gift idea as it gives flexibility and choice. You can decide when and where you would like to go (usually from a selection of venues and dates). It makes for a memorable day out and the gifts are often for two people so it gives you the opportunity to spend quality time with a loved one or close friend.
Sushi Making Courses
Again this is a great gift for two people to enjoy together. Classes vary depending on which company you decide to opt for but a general course will run for one and a half hours put on by a professional sushi chef. You’ll usually be given some freebies to take away from the day and of course (if all goes to plan!) be a budding sushi maker!
Hopefully this has given you some food for thought! Come Christmas or birthdays, you should be able to make an informed decision and choose a gift the recipient will love.
