Always happy to return to the Today Show for Kathie Lee and Hoda’s fourth hour… this time, I’m sharing my favorite bites for back to school parties! As most kids love Italian comfort foods, I’ve got my mini versions and kid-friendly portions of caprese sandwiches, spaghetti and meatballs, caesar salad (hold the anchovies please!) and buttery, delicious garlic bread. Served with lemon cups filled with lemonade and lemon stick straw. Of course, there’s a little something on the menu for the parents as well, a grown up version of lemonade… the Italian favorite, Sgroppinos! Lemon sorbet, vodka, prosecco whipped together in a cold copper bowl, poured into flutes or lemon cups and topped with limoncello!
You and both know that no kids party is complete without some sweets, so I brought out some of my mini breakfast items to share. All items that my own daughter loves in the morning or afternoon, such as: Rice Krispy Canapes with Greek Yogurt, Fresh Blueberries and Yogurt and my mini Wild Blueberry Pancake Stacks. Always a pleasure to hang out with the ladies of morning talk!
