Simplify Your Celebrations: 2-Ingredient Cooking for a party


I don’t know about you, but when I am planning a celebration, I sometimes overdo it, and end up too stressed or tired to really enjoy myself when the guests arrive.  This time could be different!  Try these simple 2-ingredient recipes, and save time shopping and preparing.  All of these can be prepared the day before, so you can put your feet up and enjoy a glass of wine even before the guests arrive.


Salmon Spread

12 ounces salmon, cooked and cooled (bake or steam it, or buy it already cooked)

7 1/2 ounces Boursin or Alouette cheese spread

Mash up the salmon with a fork.  Remove any bones or bits of skin. Soften cheese in microwave for 10 seconds. Mix everything with a mixer, or by hand with a fork. Chill and serve with crackers or  sliced rustic bread.


Fruit Dip

1 (8-ounce) package cream cheese, softened

7 ounces marshmallow cream

Combine in a bowl and mix thoroughly with a mixer. Serve cold with sliced fruit or berries.


Flourless Nutella Cake

4 large eggs

1 1/3 cups Nutella

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease an 8-inch round cake pan or springform pan. Line with parchment paper (don’t skip this, especially if using a cake pan!).  In a large bowl, beat eggs with an electric mixer on the highest setting for 6 minutes until they are three times their original volume. Microwave Nutella for 10-20 seconds to soften. In a bowl, combine the Nutella and 1/3 of the eggs. Continue folding in the eggs until combined.  Bake for 20 minutes, until just set.  Serve warm or room temperature with cocoa powder, powdered sugar or whipped cream.
