Fall colors beg for cobalt blue in the mix along with orange and yellow to create a beautiful table top. Cobalt blue with navy and orange makes a table scape dance with vibrancy and crispness, just like fall days with the cool winds and soft sounds of falling leaves. This table top has it all, the centerpiece is made from twigs spray painted white with small maple leaves glued to the ends of the branches, just as in nature where the leaves seem to fall first.
Buttermilk Biscuit Recipe is made with bread flour, sour cream, icy cold shaved butter, baking powder and buttermilk. Cheddar Cheese and other herbs/spices can be added to this basic biscuit recipe by adjusting the amount of buttermilk. If the dough is too dry add more buttermilk, if it is to wet, add more bread flour. The bread flour along with the baking powder and pinch of baking soda makes these biscuits sky high. Delicious!
Whether your table is set for two or twenty, dining on your patio or in a grassy field next to your garden, your guests at this dinner party will be filled with joy, laughter and fabulous food. As the summer garden winds down sun-ripened tomatoes are in abundance and play a vital role in this dinner party menu. The fine flavors of heirloom and cherry tomatoes makes every dish even dessert one to savor.
Need a few ideas for Tailgating before the actual tailgate? How about a brunch menu. Setting up for the big tailgate begins bright an early so why not make the morning set up just as festive as the big tailgate extravaganza. Whatever team you support, color coordinate the food and table decor for a festive and fun tailgate. This tailgate was created using Orange and White color scheme with two teams in mind, Virginia Tech featuring Orange and Maroon color scheme and the University of Virginia with Orange and Navy color scheme. Since the two teams are great rivals the ideas can be adapted to fit either team. So Go Wahoos! Go Hokies! and Go Big Orange! Make this tailgate yours!
This Apple Dumpling Pastry is made with puff pastry strips wrapped around a 3 minute microwaved whole apple that has been peeled, cored and filled with brown sugar, cinnamon, currents and chopped pecans. The pastry is brushed with an egg wash and baked in a preheated 375 degree oven for 35 minutes. The pastry turns into a beautifully golden fall apple shaped pastry. No sauce here but a scoop of cinnamon vanilla ice cream and drizzle of caramel sauce would be a great accompaniment.
