Preparing a lavish spread for a Valentine’s Day soiree? Good for you. But if fast and fun is more your style, look no further. Here are three ideas that will help make you holiday entertaining a breeze.
Cupid’s hot dog
Kids will get a kick out of hot dog hearts adapted from Disney’s Family Fun website. All you need is a cooked hot dog, an uncooked linguini noodle and a piece of cheese cut into two triangles. Cut the hot dog in the middle on a diagonal and push the cut edges together to make a heart. Hold the two pieces together by pushing half the noodle through it. Then mold the triangle pieces on the end of the noodle to form an arrowhead. Now you have an edible Cupid’s heart hot dog.
