EasyNoms Presents a Friendsgiving Feast

Standard

With Thanksgiving right around the corner, it’s time to start planning that Thanksgiving feast, and by feast we mean an abundance of food other than your bag of bread and discount shredded cheese (let’s be honest, do you even grill your sandwich or do you just eat your cheese with bread on the side?).

Your friends are lazy, so it’s up to you to feed them. Normally you would resist, but it’s the holidays and you feel this inexplicable urge to act the good samaritan. Lucky for you, EasyNoms has just the recipes to make a feast without all the fuss.

Check back every day leading up to Thanksgiving for a new recipe, and Tweet pics of your creations to us @EasyNoms.

Bisou, our loves, and happy Thanksgiving!

Halloween Tip #2: Reeses!

Standard

20141101_194431

Halloween instantly brings to mind Trick or Treating!  And that means lots of candy.  One of my favorites is Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups.  To get into the spirit for Halloween (or to get rid of that mountain of candy you’ve accumulated), here are 3 quick tips on how to further incorporate these bits of chocolate-y, peanut-buttery goodness into your life.

1. Hot Cocoa

Next time you’re settling down for a cup of hot chocolate, add a Reese’s to your cup before you add your cocoa powder mix, marshmallows, and boiling water.  It’s delicious!

2. Waffles/Pancakes

Right after you pour your batter into your waffle-maker, pop a handful of these on too!

If you’re making pancakes, you can use Reese’s Pieces, or chop your Reese’s into smaller bits, and sprinkle them into your batter.  Then make pancakes as normal.

3. Cupcakes/Muffins

Just before you pop your next batch into the oven, press a Reese’s right into the middle of each muffin!  When it’s done, you’ll have a bite of molten chocolate and peanut-butter filling as a surprise for whoever you want to impress!

Halloween Display Tip #1: Pumpkin Bowl

Standard

WH-Pumpkin-Bowl-Soup

It’s October now!  October means the start of Fall, and the coming of Halloween.  If you’d like to add some of that October flavor to your meals, use a pumpkin for a serving bowl!

No, I’m being serious.  What better way to add pumpkin and Fall to your life than hollowing out a pumpkin to use as a serving bowl?  You could also get a couple of smaller pumpkins for a personal touch.

Simply heat up some canned soup if you don’t feel like cooking, hollow out a pumpkin, and that’s it!  (The pumpkin filling with some spices and a pre-made pie crust would make an amazing pumpkin pie.)
