Teriyaki Meatballs

Teriyaki Meatballs

A few more appetizers to add to our three part series about the Wedding Shower and then we’ll move on to other things.  Not to say that these last two “bites” are to be dismissed.  I definitely think you should try them.  Once is so simple that you will wish you would have thought of it sooner.

A wedding in the family: Wedding Shower Part II – Blue Cheese Wrapped Grapes with Spicy Pistachios

Wedding shower food-5866 webAs promised, here is more of the food that Yes!Chef! prepared for his daughter’s wedding shower:  Blue Cheese and Pistachio Wrapped Grapes.  If you have never made these before, this is the time of year to try these.  They are cool and refreshing, sweet, crunchy and spicy.

No More Wimpy Yam Fries or I Yam What I Yam

I love the idea of Yam/Sweet Potato Fries.  I just don’t like many of the recipes that I have found.  Reason:  Wimpiness.

I can’t think of any good reason anything or anybody should be wimpy.

Wimpy is not a good quality and is definitely not a good quality when it comes to food.  Name me one food that is described as wimpy and is something you would cook?  I can’t think of any.
