I always love opportunities to throw parties. There is something about cooking for a group of friends that is so much more rewarding than cooking for yourself or for work. This month, I was chosen to participate in Driscoll’s Berry twitter tasting event. We were sent all sorts of goodies and tasty recipes for the event. These recipes are definitely keepers; I had no idea how much you could do with berries!
The appetizer was a Warm Brie with Raspberries and Pistachios. This was probably my favorite thing from the entire event, so delicious! This is a great recipe to save money because you don’t need to buy an expensive brie to make the dish taste delicious, all of the other flavors can disguise a cheaper brie.
For our “main” we had a Wild Rice Dressing with Raspberries and Celery. This is a great side dish for turkey or chicken. Once again the berries added an extra flavor element that I was not used to. I would have never thought to put berries with rice but they went great together!
