If the temptations of holiday snacking are too much for you, be a game changer and make some healthy, tasty party mix to munch on.
Oscar Wilde wrote, "I can resist anything except temptation."
True enough, especially this time of year. Those of you who know me know that I'm a big guy. I always reach for crunchy carbs when I want to snack, so I decided to try and make a party mix that I can eat without guilt and without popping buttons. Yesterday's snow was a perfect opportunity to get in the kitchen and experiment. Here's my first two versions:
Holiday Survival Party Mix Version 1 (super simple)

What I like about Anthony Bourdain is that he delivers the honest to goodness truth.
His writing on his experience in the kitchen is accessible. It's as if Mr. Bourdain is sitting across the table from you with a cup of coffee (or beer) and giving you the lowdown on the area's restaurants. His travels are honest and inspiring. He delivers his take on food and life with a punch, cutting to the real heart of the matter.
I really hope you'll come to our Harvest Days cooking demo this Saturday. It will be the largest and most spectacular demo we've ever hosted. Chef Shellie sent me a note this morning to remind me what she'd be preparing -- pickled beets, beet green and walnut pesto and roasted Kohlrabi with Parmesan Cheese...Yummm! And, yes, she is making enough for you to try it, too!
