  1. Mix Ice Cream, Stout, Dash of Luck

    Hide

    This Saint Patrick's Day, enjoy a cocktail version of a root beer float: vanilla ice cream topped with Irish stout. With the ice cream sweetening the rich beer, the float is as much a dessert as it is a drink. Scoop ice cream into a pint glass, and pour in enough stout to fill it. One pint of ice cream and one 12-ounce bottle of beer will yield 2 servings.

  2. New Year's Champagne with Grapes

    Hide

    In Spain, revelers mark the new year by quickly eating a dozen grapes at midnight. The fruit is said to be a predictor of the year ahead: Each sweet grape represents a good month, each sour grape a less-than-lucky one. 

    Adopt the tradition by threading grapes onto skewers, and serve each in a glass of Champagne just before the countdown.

  3. Ring of Rolls Christmas Centerpiece

    Hide

    This centerpiece of pull-apart rolls rises to the occasion. 

    Use your favorite recipe (or try the Parker House Rolls). Roll dough into sixteen 1 1/2-inch balls. Arrange in a ring on a parchment-lined baking sheet. Brush with butter, sprinkle on parsley, rosemary, or thyme; bake as directed. Serve on a cake stand atop a bed of whole herbs.

  4. Valentine's Day "Candy" Hearts Arrangement

    Hide

    This arrangement speaks for itself. To create it, cut out paper conversation hearts and, using string, attach them to an 11-inch piece of wire bent into a curve. Tuck into a bouquet (we used parrot tulips and nerine lilies).
