Daddy's Birthday Dinner

What special gift do you give someone who has everything? What gift is better than any new sweater or wallet – a gift from the heart?

This year for Dad’s birthday, I wanted to put a different spin on my gift to him. Cooking and entertaining is a gift that I love to give. My parents are super busy people, but that keeps them young. We scheduled the birthday celebration for a few weeks ago, so they could be pampered and enjoy a four course dinner.

Pear and Proscuitto Crostini
Mixed Greens with Pomegranate, Blue Cheese and Candied Walnuts tossed with a French Vinaigrette
Asian Braised Short Ribs with Orange Hoisen Sauce and Creamy Sour Cream Mashed Potatoes
Brownie Sundae with Rocky Road Ice Cream and Chocolate Ganache Sauce accented with Homemade Toffee

Great Parents...Great Memories....Great Times!
