Here’s to the Hynsons

The phyllo favorite.

The phyllo favorite.

We couldn’t have chosen a more beautiful day to cater the future Mrs. Hynson’s wedding shower—sunny skies, a nice breeze and a front porch packed with rocking chairs…what more could you ask for? (Besides great food, of course)

Our menu was small, but just right for a late-afternoon get-together. Phyllo wrapped asparagus, mini pumpkin muffins, deviled eggs, a cheese and grapes platter, and lemon squares provided a nice variety of savory and sweet.

To prepare these dishes for a party of twenty we started last night with the eggs, muffins and lemon squares, and finished up this morning with the asparagus bundles—which were the real hit of the party.

Always a perfect pair.

These dainty phyllo appetizers are both delicious and simple to make, because they only require 4 ingredients—asparagus, phyllo dough, butter and Parmesan. Just roll up three thin stalks in a layer of buttered phyllo, sprinkle with Parmesan, and pop them in the oven for 12 minutes at 375. They can be served fresh out of the oven, but are equally delectable at room temperature—personal preference is what matters here.

Pumpkin...not just for jack-o-lanterns.

After a couple of non-stop days in the kitchen we’re ready to hit the sack early! But, on a final note, we’re so happy to have been a part of Janie’s shower and wish her and Warren all the best!

The finished product.

Until next time,
