To make sure I&rsquo;m prepared, I always stock a few nibbles—cheese, crackers, olives and fruit—and my favorite drinks. Now that I live in Vermont, I do have a few craft beers in my fridge, but what I really stockpile is wine. </p></div> http://www.eatingwell.com/blogs/food_blog/wines_10_and_under#comments Healthy Cooking Blog Breana Lai Budget meals Dinner Entertaining Food News & Origins - EatingWell Magazine Mon, 29 Jun 2015 17:38:46 +0000 kurtschulitz 286042 at http://www.eatingwell.com A Make-Ahead Mexican Fiesta http://www.eatingwell.com/blogs/food_blog/a_make_ahead_mexican_fiesta <div><a href="http://www.eatingwell.com/blogs/food_blog/a_make_ahead_mexican_fiesta" target="_blank"><img src="http://bed56888308e93972c04-0dfc23b7b97881dee012a129d9518bae.r34.cf1.rackcdn.com/sites/default/files/imagecache/148_148/141007_EW_07TableHero_611_Cropped.jpg" alt="A Make-Ahead Mexican Fiesta Blog Post" title="A Make-Ahead Mexican Fiesta Blog Post" border="0" width="148" height="148"/></a></div> <div><p>When I entertain, I often make Mexican food.

Each family and restaurant has their own specific way of making them. Some are skinny and tall, others flat and wide, and some come nestled together like Parker House rolls in cast-iron pans. Served with butter or jam, smothered with gravy or topped with ham and cheese or a piece of fried chicken, biscuits are as Southern as bourbon, collards and mac and cheese. </p></div> http://www.eatingwell.com/blogs/food_blog/the_difference_between_biscuits_and_scones_plus_6_healthy_recipes#comments Food Blog Healthy Cooking Blog Breakfast Breana Lai Cooking tips Dessert Entertaining Recipe Makeover Multimedia & Tools - Blogs Thu, 16 Apr 2015 15:47:40 +0000 suzie.qu_559209 285584 at http://www.eatingwell.com “Spiralized” Vegetable Noodles: Recipes to Up Your Pasta Game http://www.eatingwell.com/blogs/food_blog/spiralized_vegetable_noodles_recipes_to_up_your_pasta_game <div><a href="http://www.eatingwell.com/blogs/food_blog/spiralized_vegetable_noodles_recipes_to_up_your_pasta_game" target="_blank"><img src="http://bed56888308e93972c04-0dfc23b7b97881dee012a129d9518bae.r34.cf1.rackcdn.com/sites/default/files/imagecache/148_148/mdp_12952.jpg" alt="“Spiralized” Vegetable Noodles: Recipes to Up Your Pasta Game Blog Post" title="“Spiralized” Vegetable Noodles: Recipes to Up Your Pasta Game Blog Post" border="0" width="148" height="148"/></a></div> <div><p>When I was tasked with testing vegetable noodle makers—aka “spiralizers”—I was hesitant. Growing up with a Chinese father, I primarily ate an Asian-inspired diet that included a lot of rice. But on special occasions, I had another option: noodles. And like most kids, when given the choice between rice and noodles, I’d always pick noodles. Noodles, in this case, meant ramen, lo mein, soba or egg and I loved them all—and still do. I was afraid that vegetable versions of my beloved noodles couldn’t come close to my enjoyment of the starchy originals. </p></div> http://www.eatingwell.com/blogs/food_blog/spiralized_vegetable_noodles_recipes_to_up_your_pasta_game#comments Food Blog Healthy Cooking Blog Breana Lai Cooking tips Dinner Kitchen tools Multimedia & Tools - Blogs Thu, 16 Apr 2015 14:12:52 +0000 suzie.qu_559209 285583 at http://www.eatingwell.com How to Buy Thai Curry Paste, Plus Easy Recipes to Make with It http://www.eatingwell.com/blogs/food_blog/how_to_buy_thai_curry_paste_plus_easy_recipes_to_make_with_it <div><a href="http://www.eatingwell.com/blogs/food_blog/how_to_buy_thai_curry_paste_plus_easy_recipes_to_make_with_it" target="_blank"><img src="http://bed56888308e93972c04-0dfc23b7b97881dee012a129d9518bae.r34.cf1.rackcdn.com/sites/default/files/imagecache/148_148/23974_Allen_310.jpg" alt="How to Buy Thai Curry Paste, Plus Easy Recipes to Make with It Blog Post" title="How to Buy Thai Curry Paste, Plus Easy Recipes to Make with It Blog Post" border="0" width="148" height="148"/></a></div> <div><p>We love a good Thai curry.
