Warm-weather entertaining made easy with expert tips and recipes
(BPT) - Warmer temperatures often mean a busier social calendar. So whether you’re planning a meal to enjoy al fresco, or whipping up a sweet treat for a neighborhood block party, it’s a great time of year to experiment in the kitchen.
But when you’re trying out a new recipe, do you hesitate when it calls for certain ingredients? Ted Allen, television personality and cookbook author, suggests making simple substitutions in your cooking and baking to cut back on added fat and calories and improve the nutrition profile of favorite dishes.
“Whether I’m judging dishes on TV, or hosting a dinner party for my family and friends, taste is always key for me. That’s why I like to use a spread such as I Can’t Believe It’s Not Butter! or Country Crock, both made by Unilever, instead of butter,” says Allen. “They are made with a delicious blend of oils and have a rich, buttery taste. Spreads are a great-tasting recipe ingredient and help me feel good about the food I serve to my guests because they have less saturated fat and fewer calories than butter.”
