Welcome! My name is Katherine and I like to cook while eating (gets rid of that ravenous hunger thing). Please have a look at my recipes and always remember, never cook on an empty stomach!

For Your New Years Party: Salami Crisps

New years is a week away, and here's a recipe that'll be nice to your wallet and your guests. Can be prepared early up to step 4.
(Taken from Giada De Laurentiis, a chef whose recipes I steal often)

24 slices of dry salami (half a packet)
Sour Cream (full fat, it sticks better)
Sliced basil
Tin foil

1) Preheat oven to 325 degrees. Line two baking sheets with tin foil and add salami.
2)Place salami in oven for 7-10 minutes. Watch carefully to insure the sides don't burn.
3) While salami is in oven, julienne your basil so you have nice, even strips. You'll need about a small handful of basil.
4) Drain salami on paper-towel lined plates and let cool for 5-10 minutes.
5)When cool, put salami on serving trays and add a small dollop of sour cream and half a slice of basil.
6) Enjoy your party!
