The '90s brought us the grunge look, (good) Madonna, and one long list of cult-classic moviegoing experiences. It also gave us a decade of perfect teen-angst melodrama that you are still reliving with your friends 20 years later. This weekend, call up your best bud, put on your favorite flannel, pop in the VHS, and munch on our '90s-inspired fare.
You loved our corn bread hors d'oeuvres baked in mini-muffin tins, so we found a way to make them even more scrumptious. Mix in one of the sweet, savory, or spicy flavor combinations below, or create your own. You'll have appetizers to feed an army, or at least a few dozen of your closest friends.
European immigrants made this confection -- which has large, crisp crumbs on top -- a New York City coffee-shop favorite. An optional layer of jam between the batter and topping adds a fruity component.
These hulled pumpkin seeds are tossed with lime juice for zing and chili powder for spice (we like arbol for its extra kick), and then toasted into a crunchy -- and addictive -- appetizer. Counter the heat by washing them down with a refreshing Mexican beer.
