Food plays a huge role in all of these happenings but I just want you to know that it doesn’t have to be complicated! You can throw a magnificent event…one that will put a smile on everyone’s face and it can be relatively easy. How you ask? Why not try a Food Bar approach? Select a theme…such as pancakes…waffles…taco’s…even pizza…gather all the makings and focus on what you need for that dish.

Set up a wonderful table with fruits…syrups…ice cream…all kind of toppings and you can even make the waffles right in front of everyone or have a friend help out with that.

It’s wonderful and cost effective!
This is just a brilliant idea and there is absolutely no cooking involved! Perfect for a morning event…brunch or any time. Have large beautiful bowls with favorite flavors of yogurt and then bowls of all kinds of toppings. Looks amazing and tastes fabulous! Oh once again…No COOKING!!!!
