I survived my first experience as a cooking class instructor! I actually had a lot of fun. I mean, I’m not gonna quit my day job or anything…
I demonstrated 6 recipes in an hour and a half, made 4 trips to pick up what I forgot and lost my corkscrew. Needless to say, it was a whirlwind! I couldn’t believe it – people actually took notes on what I had to say! The class was on holiday appetizers. Several of the recipes are in my cookbook. A couple others are just favorite stand-bys. I am going to give you the newest recipe I created. It is for a cranberry orange relish that you serve over cream cheese as a spread for crackers or baguette toasts.
Orange Cranberry Relish:
½ can whole berry cranberry sauce
3 T Sweet Orange Marinalade
½ C Orange flavored dried cranberries
½ T Pumpkin Pie Spice
¼ C Chopped Candied Nuts
1 Pkg Cream Cheese 8oz.
- Let cream cheese soften on serving plate.
- Mix together all other ingredients and spread over top of cream cheese
- Arrange crackers around the cream cheese and serve.
