November Holiday Preperation for Make and Take Gals!

The Make and Take Gals gathered at Poh's today to stock up on appetizers and gifts for the holiday season. As she does every year, Poh showered us in new recipes that had us nibbling the whole day! Tucked inside in a cozy warm kitchen, it was bitter cold outside as Portland received an early cold snap from Canada this year. 

No worries for us, because Poh had hot tea and blueberry crumble bread waiting to greet us. Then it was down to work! We made Bourbon Spiced Pumpkin Seeds, Spiced Pecans, Cranberry Curd, Peanut Dipping Sauce, and Poh's famous 3-layer spread!

We worked up quite the appetite. Poh was ready with some peanut sauce with a kick to try on a yummy bed of chicken, rice and vegis! Delicious! For dessert... brightly presented parfaits with pound cake, cranberry curd, whip cream and spiced pumpkin seeds sprinkled on top.

After getting our fill we headed back to the work table and packaged up our creations. Another holiday prep in the bag! Thanks Poh!

Recipe: This is a keeper! Recipients have been asking for more! Enjoy!
