Our apartment building had its annual holiday party last Fri so here's what I made for it...
> roasted garlic hummus (couple of containers)
> 2 loaves of the wonderful New York Times No-Knead Bread
plus I threw in a baguette
> 3 onion-cheese quiches (thank you, Julia Child!)
> French cheese puffs (Gougeres)
- thanks for the help on these, DC members!
> 2 doz "rich roll sugar cookies" (recipe from the Joy of Cooking) - decorated by my neighbor's five-year-old son
Produced lotsa food for relatively low cost (the most costly item was good quality cheddar and gruyere cheese for the quiche and cheese puffs).
Time to think about speciality gifts for my foodie friends, but most of this doesn't involve baking.
