Live A Little - Foodie Made Easy

One of the best ways to enjoy life and live a little is to have spontaneous get-togethers. Of course, not all of us are born hostesses who can throw together a party in an instant. Some of us have to wing it. 

In my youth, entertaining used to be pretty simple- buy a twelve pack and a couple of bags of chips or uncork a bottle of wine. Now it's all about cocktails and hors d'oeuvres. I maintain, however, that foodie doesn't need to be fancy. As long as it looks moderately appetizing and tastes fantastic, your friends will be happy. 

Here's the easiest, quickest, gourmet-ish snack you can make. Take one bottle of Fischer & Wieser Original Roasted Raspberry Chipotle sauce. Pour about 1/4 of it over a block of cream cheese on a pretty platter. Surround with crackers. Devour.

The last time I did this, we went through two blocks of cream cheese. Nom. This stuff is also unbelievable for leftover Thanksgiving turkey sandwiches. They sent a copy of their catalog along with this bottle of sauce and I want literally one of everything. Perfect pantry goods for insta-parties!

Check out this easy gourmet dinner suggestion using Fischer & Weiser Whole Lemon & Fig Marmalade:

Bake for 35 minutes, basting frequently with more marmalade. Remove chicken from baking dish and place on warm platter. Pour cooking juices over chicken as sauce. Garnish with fresh parsley and lemon slices if desired. Serve with a tossed salad and a side of rice, and you’ve got dinner!
