KCL Friday Finds

Happy weekend, and welcome to Friday Finds! Today it's all about holiday hostess gifts. It about the time when you may have several seasonal parties and functions to attend, and you should never show up empty-handed. The best hostess gift should be something just for the hostess that he or she can use at a later time, either for entertaining or just for themselves. Just because you may have been assigned a side dish or drinks, you should still being along a special hostess gift.

A hostess gift doesn't need to cost a lot. They can range anywhere from $10-$25, and really should be on average $20. There are so many appropriate options in this price range - anything from a set of tea towels to a cookbook, or something gourmet, or even a little bath and body gift. If you need a hostess gift for a party or dinner this holiday season, you can't go wrong with one of the picks below.


This first one is my favorite, because it's a versatile multi-use item, and it's so chic. …

Easy Appetizer: Phyllo Egg Cups


Need an extra easy appetizer for your holiday brunch? These Phyllo Egg Cups are so cheap, easy and delicious. All you need is a box of frozen pre-baked mini phyllo cups, eggs, and fresh parsley. These are simply phyllo cups filled with scrambled eggs, garnished with parsley.

The phyllo cups are in most grocery stores, in the frozen dessert & frozen fruit section. These little phyllo cups are completely ready to go. You don't even need to warm them in the over. Simply let them come to room temperature while you prepare your eggs.
 
You can even cook your scrambled eggs ahead of time and warm them in the microwave the day of your party. I used a melon baller to scoop the eggs into the cups. You can switch it up with different garnishes like mini capers, parmesan shavings or chopped scallions.
 
*Entertaining Tip: Buy a large amount of the mini phyllo cups and save on prep time by using the cups to make several different dishes, from other hot appetizers to mini desserts like fruit tarts.
