A family affair...

I helped my aunt throw a bridal shower yesterday for my cousin's fiance, Ashley (welcome to the family!!).

It was the debut of my culinary skills in Miami (well, I have cooked for my family, but not really for others).

I am so pleased with how everything turned out!! Experiences like these help me learn and grow and I am grateful for the chance to do it (and I slept 12 hours last night to recover from the exhaustion!).

So, here are the pictures and the recipes, as requested (just click on the name, it will send you to the appropriate website)...

Mini Cheesecakes

Turducken Cupcakes and Buttercream Frosting

Cranberry Feta Pinwheels

Mexican Quiches

Recipes for items I did not take pictures of:

Cilantro Cream Sauce (Make it. Don't ask questions. Just make it. And then drink it, with tortilla chips or the Mexican Quiches.)

Cheese Fondue (so good!)

Brigadeiros (I like to roll these in powdered sugar. Or raw cocoa. You pick.)

Bruschetta (we omit the cayenne, FYI)

Strawberry and Spinach Salad (the dressing is a-ma-zing!)

Good luck with the recipes!
And as my Aunt Sally says, just follow the recipe and you will be fine...

I was at the party and can attest that the food was DELICIOUS and the presentation was beautiful. Thanks for the the way, it's my first time at this blog. Looks great. I'm planning on coming back.
