We like to think we are always giving you some new ideas, but lately we had a lot of new visitors to our site, thanks to giveaways and some features in magazines, and we find ourselves wanting to share these oldie but goodies! And even as we go through our archives, we get excited about past ideas.  So forgive us for the repeats, but we still get inspired by them and hope you will too!

The holiday season means it is time for lots of fun drinks and cocktails.  And, it is the only time of year you find eggnog.  We came up with a unique way to serve this festive drink…our plastic milk bottles.

How cute would these be on Christmas morning?  All it took was some red felt, glue dots and a pair of scissors.  We love to use felt because it doesn’t fray on the edges.  Just snip two cuts on the side to slide in your straw.  And you don’t have to limit this to eggnog…you could make up some mimosas for holiday brunch, or apple cider for a skating party. What’s your favorite holiday cocktail?

Let it be known that at Garnish…we love a good french fry.  You know the kind that are crunchy on the outside but soft in the middle.  Maybe with a side of mayo and a Diet Coke (excuse us as we wipe up the drool off the keyboard).  Our love of the fry definitely was influential in acquiring the latest new Garnish, the fry scoop.

Well, wouldn’t you know, when we saw page 61 of this month’s Food Network magazine, we saw a different kind of fry that was perfect for our new fry scoop…..a pie fry!  They looked so yummy, we decided to make them ourselves and Garnish it up!

Step 1: Unroll your favorite refrigerated pie crust, and cut it into strips.  We used a fancy waffle cutter, but a plain old knife will work just fine.

Step 2: Brush your dough with melted butter and sprinkle with cinnamon sugar.  Bake at 375F for 15 minutes, or golden brown.

How yummy do they look?  Seriously, it was that easy.  Just put a few into our fry scoop, (we used a sheet of our waxed tissue to make it look extra fancy) and serve them up with a side of strawberry jam in our squeeze bottle.  A fun after school snack, dessert or anytime you have a fixin’ for some fries!

Walk With Me

Come on folks…we’re going on a field trip! Where are we going? Memory lane. This is the story of how Garnish came to be. So sit back, relax and enjoy the ride.

The love (dare I say, obsession) with packaging has been there for many years, but it all came to a head during the holidays of ’06. My youngest of three boys was barely 2 months old and while I birthed him, he birthed in me a huge creative streak. (more…)
