Grilled Party Kabobs / #OurFamilyTable

If you are looking for a tasty, and easy New Year's Eve recipe for your family and guests, Grilled Party Kabobs are for you! They are full of good-for-you ingredients, for those new year's resolutions, and they are fresh and tasty, so you will want to make them again and again!

Grilled Party Kabobs  

(makes approx. 2 dozen kabobs)

(printable recipe at end of page)


1 small blue Baby Potato per kabob

1 lb. raw Chicken Breast

1 small Cherry Tomato per kabob

1 medium/large Red Onion

1 package medium length wooden skewers


There are just a few ingredients in the recipe, making it easy to put together, with products you probably already have in your kitchen. Cut the onion into long, thin pieces. It will give a fun look to the kabob! 


Start by rinsing the potatoes in the sink. These potatoes are easily found at the grocery. The size works perfect for the kabobs. They are from Melissas's Produce. The bag includes several colors, all of which would be perfect for this recipe. You could mix them up too!


Once you decide on the color you want to use, place the potatoes in a bowl and add a little bit of water. Place in microwave for 2-3 minutes. You are just letting the potatoes get a head start on the cooking, because they take a bit longer to grill than the other ingredients on the stick. 



Cut the chicken breast into small bite size pieces, thick enough to cook on the skewers. If your pieces are cut too thin the meat will cook faster than the other food on your stick. Sprinkle your chicken with garlic powder and black pepper.


Put your skewers together. I styled these to be appetizers, so I used one of each vegetable and 2 pieces of chicken. Putting the onion in a circle makes for a fun and pretty look.


Grill for approx. 10-15 minutes, turning the skewers to grill evenly. 



Add a favorite dipping sauce, or several to the party tray!

Cherry Cordial Hot Chocolate / Recipes From Our Dinner Table

When winter shows its nasty head, and drops by with crazy wind, and freezing temperatures, hot chocolate often makes an appearance at our house. This Cherry Cordial Hot Chocolate is the perfect remedy for the weather. It is full of chocolate and cherry flavor and it is best served with a dollop of whipped cream on top! Mmmmm!

This recipe uses chocolate syrup for the chocolate flavoring. I used a recipe I have made in the past to make homemade chocolate syrup. It makes a tasty base for the hot chocolate. Of course, store bought syrup will work just as well.  



Cherry Cordial Hot Chocolate
(makes 8 1/2 cup size,  hot chocolate drinks)
(printable recipe at end of page)

5 1/2 cups Milk
1 1/2 cup Half and Half
1 1/2 cups Chocolate Syrup
1/2 cup Maraschino Cherry Juice, divided
1 3/4 cups Whipping Cream
1 tablespoon Powdered Sugar 

Chocolate Syrup
1 1/2 cups Water
1 1/2 cups White Sugar
1 cup Cocoa Powder
1 dash Salt
1 teaspoon Vanilla Extract


 It is easier if you make the Chocolate Syrup first. That way you can put the hot chocolate recipe together quickly. Mix together the water, sugar, cocoa powder and salt in a saucepan over low heat. Whisk until the mix begins to thicken and begins to simmer. Take the chocolate syrup off heat. Add the vanilla and stir. Let cool. You will have extra chocolate sauce. Refrigerate for other uses!

Start the hot chocolate by mixing together the milk, half and half, chocolate syrup and seven tablespoons of maraschino cherry juice in a large pot. Use medium high heat. 

 
Beat the whipping cream using medium speed with mixer. Add powdered sugar a little at a time. Add powdered sugar and the remainder of the cherry juice, until soft peaks start to form.

Place the hot chocolate in a mug, add a dollop of whipped cream, serve and enjoy!
