Tonight we are hosting an impromptu casual dinner with friends. When I’m in a rush to throw something together, I always turn to easy recipes that I know are failsafe. Plus, I make a variety of foods because not everyone can eat everything. Allergies seem to be more and more prevalent as I’m discovering. One of our guests is allergic to nuts and one is has a gluten allergy so I’m making a fun springy arugula salad with fresh strawberries & pears, these spiced up Cabot cheddar crackers and baguettes I picked up at a local bakery to pair up with my pesto made without nuts. I’m also making some brown rice pasta which is gluten free.
These crackers are super easy to make and you can make them ahead of time – which helps when multi-tasking. These are also great as leftovers, stored in an airtight container for breakfast the next day or for lunch. Great also with soup!
