Overview –

My current classes are Card Buffets. I create 6-8 different cards/party favors that attendees can choose from. Make as little as 4. Or, make more.

I spoil those that attend. All cuts are made. Bases are scored. Everything is bagged. Adhesive is provided. You stamp, assemble, socialize, snack and place an order if you like.

Recipes –

Pumpkin Bars

  • 1 egg
  • 1 16 ounce can pumpkin
  • 1 box Gingerbread mix

Preheat oven to 350. Spray a 9×13 jelly roll pan with nonstick spray. Beat/mix eggs & pumpkin. Add gingerbread mix.  Combine all ingredients. Spread in pan. Bake for 20-30 minutes until cake tester come out clean. Dust with powdered sugar or ice with cream cheese icing!

At my monthly classes I have a few *staple* recipes that I use over and over.

Wine Sangria. Here are the basic components –

  • 1 bottle of wine (cheap, expensive, red,  white – it does not matter)
  • 1 frozen mixer (like a Margherita or a daiquiri)
  • 2-3 bottles of sparkling flavored water (1 liter size)
  • fresh fruit

I combine the wine, mixer and fruit and let them *marry*. When its time to serve, I add ice to my pitcher, the *mix*, and the sparkling water. Stir and serve!

Some idea combinations

  • 1 – Margherita mixer, lemon/lime sparkling water and cut up oranges, lemons, and limes.
  • 2 – Peach daiquiri mixer, peach sparkling water, and fresh or frozen peaches.
  • 3 – Strawberry daiquiri mixer, lime sparkling water and any kind of berries, fresh or frozen!

Quick Artichoke Dip

  • 2 8oz packages of soften cream cheese
  • 1 16oz can of artichoke hearts (non marinated), chopped
  • 1 bag (1 1/2 cup) shredded parmesan cheese

I combine all 3 ingredients and microwave to soften. Serve with crackers or bread!

For an added touch, pour into a baking dish. bake at 350 until browned and bubbly. Serve warm. Or you can serve it warm from a miniature crockpot.

I have tried all 3 ways and they are always a hit – it just depends on your time!

Happy Snackin’


One thought on “CLASS INFO

  1. I tried the “Pumpkin Bars” recipe–everyone at Crafty Thanksgiving loved it, and that’s saying something because they usually do everything from scratch. To break up the texture a bit, I added a vanilla soy milk + powdered sugar glaze and pecans.

    I’m thinking of using it again for thanksgiving at Brett’s house! I don’t want to come empty-handed!
