I saw the source of this recipe, Drago's, on a show about seafood or New Orleans. Who can keep track? The chefs at Drago's pile oysters onto the grill, shucked, and then generously brush them with this garlicky butter. The oysters get warm, the butter bubbles over and mixes with the oyster liqueur. It's magical. Then they sprinkle them with pecorino and parsley. These are wonderful with bread or crackers, but I would just go ahead and skip those accompaniments in lieu of clutching a glass of white wine or bubbly.
1/2 tsp. black pepper
3 dozen oysters on the half shell
3 Tbs. grated parmesan and romano cheese
1 Tbs. chopped parsley

The holidays are here! We did everything we could to resist the Black Friday and Cyber Monday sales, and instead put our hard-earned cash towards picking up the sweetest looking (and smelling) Douglas fir this weekend and bedecking it in several strings of pretty lights and colorful baubles. Christine dubbed our masterpiece, "Kate Spade via Jenna and Christine." The color scheme was definitely inspired by KS and her non traditional Christmas palette. Candy-colored hues of red, pink, green, purple, and teal definitely perk up our little space. We are eager to have guests over for cocktails and festive bites to share in the holiday merriment. How did you decorate your tree this year?
