Caviar Pie
Very Good 4.0/5
(2 ratings)

This is a great showpiece for a party. My children and grandchildren ask for it and everyone else raves about it.
And there are virtually no carbs (except for the crackers you eat it with).

New Years Party Bars
(no ratings)

High-test, perfectly sweet espresso "brownies" (no chocolate, but they are brown!) perfect for those parties that run into the wee morning hours! I cut these into petit-four sized pieces and decorate them with little rosettes of vanilla icing and chocolate-covered espresso beans for parties. If it's just for home noshing, though, feel free to cut them as big as you like!
