Three Amazing Sauces for burger's and fries!

When I was young I used to dip my french fries in tartar sauce or this pink concoction of mayonnaise and ketchup. Fast forward.......

These days, I don’t eat a lot of french fries or burgers, but when I do I like a aioli or a more complex flavored sauce to dip my fries in or smear on my burger. It’s not quite as simple as my ketchup and mayo of my youth but, it’s 1000 times better and I just can't get enough of it when it's time for burgers and fries!

Double cooked French Fries

When done well, French fries are truly remarkable—crispy on the outside, light and fluffy on the inside. Truly delightful!

About a week ago I created a Slider Bar for my 4th of July party, one of the side's was these delicious fries in which I used a double cooking process that I think is the best! This approach to preparing French fries has set a new standard by which other fries are judged, in my opinion!

Party Trend- Food "Bar" idea's!

Lately, some of the most popular party planning ideas seem to center around the next “bar” idea. And no, I don’t just mean alcohol and beer…I mean food too! We’ve all seen the “candy bar” idea for kids parties, weddings and the ever popular “popcorn bar", but what about some new ideas too?

Just yesterday, July 4th I hosted a really fun party for friends and family. I decided to do a "Slider Bar", oh my.....I realized how much work there is to making a really tasty slider bar! I made many of the sauces, the coleslaw, the potato salad and putting together all the cheeses, and toppings is really time consuming. I always plan ahead and do as much in advance as possible to free me up to enjoy my guests. However, in this case, much needs to be done all at the same time! My friends and family jumped in to help, NOT because I asked, but, because they were having fun participating! It was really fun!

Now here are some fun ideas I incorporated into my "Slider Bar"!
