Party Recipes

Are you planning a New Year’s Eve party or just a family get together over the holiday weekend? Here is an old favorite recipe – Party Mix and one with a new twist – Barbecue Party Mix – it’s really good, you need to try it! I use my Roaster with Granny Speckles to make both of these recipes. Did you think the only use for a roaster is for your Thanksgiving turkey or Christmas ham – think again. Enjoy!
