ModernHostess: The Other Holy Trinity – Capr...

Sometimes, the whole is greater than the sum of its parts. Perfect example- the delectable trifecta of tomato, cheese, and basil.

ModernHostess: Finger-Lickin’ Chicken

As most of us probably are, I’m a real sucker for chicken fingers. What’s not to love?? It’s crispy, delicious comfort food, and the dipping sauce variety is just delightful.

ModernHostess: Adventures with Baked Brie

Mmmm baked brie. I’ve enjoyed it many times at dinner parties and restaurants. However, I must admit I have never attempted to make it on my own, despite my obsession with all things cheese. So I decided it would be the perfect appetizer to serve at my cocktail party this weekend. Baked brie looks pretty impressive, but it’s a cinch to make....
