Front Burner: Cookie butter is easy, tasty, adaptable

posted: 12/21/2016 2 a.m. Discuss

Several years ago, Santa left a jar of cookie butter in my stocking, along with the usual earrings, underwear and orange. One taste and I was hooked.

The serving suggestions on the jar included eating it with fresh fruit or on toast. But within days I had eaten the entire jar straight off the spoon.

Tools that do only one thing have no place in most kitchens. And the same could be said of appliances. So I was a bit surprised when I found myself drawn to the Dash Rapid Egg Cooker.

From mulled cider and wine to cocktails made with the fruits of the season, beverages are just as much a part of holiday entertaining as the food. Whether it's to welcome and warm guests coming in from the cold or to soothe a scratchy throat, a hot beverage is the way to go.

Front Burner: Sweet! Potatoes produce caramel

posted: 12/07/2016 1:58 a.m. Discuss

Would you believe me if I told you you can make caramel from sweet potatoes? With no added sugar. Just sweet potatoes?
