Fruit and Caramel Brie and a giveaway!

by Laura


The holidays are just around the corner. It is the time of the year that is usually filled with parties, gatherings, and dinners – all of which usually include food. If you happen to be the host of one of the many holiday get-togethers, you want to impress your guests but not be stressed. Today, I am going to share with you some ways to make your holidays stress-free, including a simple recipe and some new products for your kitchen.
First off is a simple appetizer. I wanted to get one that had Thanksgiving flair, but this really could work for anytime during the holidays. I wanted something that would be quick and easy to make but also wanted it to be special. This would be a great way to start off your Thanksgiving meal.

Fruit and Caramel Brie

  • 1 round (13.25 oz) Brie cheese
  • 1/3 cup caramel ice cream topping
  • 1/4 cup dried cranberries
  • 1/4 cup chopped dried apples
  • 1/4 cup chopped walnuts
  • Sliced baguette bread or crackers
    1. Remove the rind from the Brie and place the cheese round in a microwave-safe serving bowl.
    2. In another bowl, combine the caramel topping, cranberries, apples and walnuts.
    3. Spread the caramel mixture over the Brie.
    4. Microwave, uncovered, on high for 45-60 seconds or until cheese is heated through and slightly melted. Serve with toasted baguette slices or crackers. 

Now that you have a simple appetizer for the holidays, I want to share with you some new products from GE Café™ that can also help make your holiday cooking easier. First is the new GE Café™ Double Oven Range. Who couldn’t use two ovens when preparing for a meal like Thanksgiving?
The cook-top has:

  • Tri-ring burner – goes as high as 20K BTUs (most powerful GE Café™  has ever made)
  • Allows for GE’s most powerful boiling technology but can also be brought down to a simmer
  • Can adjust to pan size
  • Distinct Simmer burner – 5K BTUs
  • Integrated non-stick griddle (8K BTUs)

The oven has:

  •  6.7 ft³ capacity – largest oven capacity in the US industry
  • Two fully functional ovens that can be set at different temperatures
  • Top cavity – 7”H; Lower cavity 13”H
  • Both self-cleaning
  • Lower oven gas convection
  • Fan circulates air evenly allowing for even cooking that seals in flavor/juices
  • Extension slide-out rack

Next is the GE Café™ Advantium Oven. It is Four Ovens in One!

  • Speedcook
  • Traditional Convection Bake
  • Warming/Proofing Oven (great when making those Thanksgiving rolls!)
  • Sensor Microwave (perfect for warming up your Thanksgiving leftovers!)

It also has 175 preprogrammed recipes, a programmable nightlight, and a stainless steel interior.
I know either of those appliances would help make my holiday cooking easier!  GE Café™  and BlogHer have also been nice enough to provide a $100 Visa gift card to give away to one lucky reader.  To enter, just leave a comment telling me a tip you use to help make holiday cooking less stressful.
In addition, you can win your own GE Café™ Advantium 120V by sharing a recipe or tip between 11/10/11 – 11/30/11.  Visit the GE Café™ Promotions and Prizes page for more details and a chance to win. Good luck!

The best way to make it less stressful is to not do it! LOL I do not typically do any holiday meals for family. We don’t travel, so its just the hubby and I and we are a great team in the kitchen. When we go home, I always bring dessert and for me that means Pillsbury refrigerated cookiee dough! LOL Yeah…I would not win the Betty Crocker award!

A tip for making the thanksgiving day easier is I get all the stuff ready about 24 hours before the big day, I cook the bird, and make the spuds, regular and sweet spuds, freeze the turkey, put the spuds in the fridge, make the dressing the day of Thanksgiving and keep it in the fridge to put in the one oven I own with the bird all sliced up, make gravy then, cranberry sauce is easy a fresh one..The pies are all baked up before the feast and we are good to go…easy peasey as I say..

This was the first Thanksgiving in several years that I had one oven and I terribly missed my double oven. I planned ahead and ended up with only three things in the oven at the same thing. Only problem . . one of them was the turkey!

I put the frozen turkey in the fridge the Saturday or Sunday (depending on the weight of the bird) before Thanksgiving so it will be thawed and ready to go in the oven Thursday morning. No last minute stress or delay trying to quick-thaw a partially frozen bird.

To make holiday cooking less stressful, I choose tried-and-true recipes and do as much ahead of time as possible. And ask for help from my guests!

I really enjoy the holidays and cramming a thousand tasks into a 100 task day. The only thing I know I do to get myself in the ultimate cooking or preparing mode is to play all those old wonderful Christmas tunes. I know I am a sap but there is something about those old songs that bring back wonderful memories and get me in the best mood possible.

Like lots of others have said, I start a few days early! Anything that can be started , then kept in the fridge till the “big day”, such as homemade dinner rolls (which were made with the help of my bread machine!), stuffing, etc. I also have Crock Pots in various sizes to cook in and to keep things like gravy warm so my stove and oven are not jammed packed! I also make use of post it notes to keep track of what needs to be started and when, etc, so everything is ready all at the same time!

Responsibility for the meal is shared in our families. The host generally does the turkey, stuffing, and mashed potatoes, and others bring desserts and side dishes. I think the important thing is to remember that while the meal is important, being with loved ones is more important.

The main thing I do is remind myself and those around me what the holidays are supposed to be about. It makes things easier because then everybody wants to help as a family unit. Littles are in charge of veggie tray and dip(dressing and sour cream) while larger ones help with dressing and cranberry sauce. Finally hubby is in charge of degutting the innards of turkey and salting and oiling. This leaves me with supervision, dessert and details.

Create a plan for when you will prepare and cook thing, those you can get done a head of time, etc.This will save you loads of time, and minimize the stress.

Making holiday cooking easier begins, for me, with not biting off more than I can chew. I think about the most important dishes that we simply MUST have and arrange the rest of the menu around it. Simplicity is key. Quality over quantity. But it’s SO hard when you really want to try a dozen new recipes!

I make holiday cooking less stressful by enlisting my husband’s help and dividing the tasks.

I love making holiday cooking easier by doing it with family. It just feels more homey that way! The kids run around and play, we get to chat, and the work feels easier for doing it with someone else there to help.
