Sending Love to Ellicott City, MD

On May 27, 2018, our beloved Ellicott City, MD was flooded yet again by a torrential downpour that totaled 9 inches of rain over a two-hour period. Here’s how you can help.

All cleaning supplies and food should be directed to the Community Action Council of Howard County, which is collecting materials at the Howard County Food Bank, 9385 Gerwig Lane, Suite J, Columbia, MD 21046.

All philanthropic contributions should be directed to the Community Foundation of Howard County at www.cfhoco.org.

December Update from Passanante’s

Happy Holidays

Picking a menu for a large holiday gathering can seem like a daunting task. Something for the kids, something for the picky eaters and something for everyone else – it’s a lot to think about!

Our advice? Stick with what you know. A big group gathering may not the best time to try out a brand new recipe. Not to mention, nothing brings back great memories quite like a old family favorite. Whether it’s a classic green bean casserole or your great great grandma’s curried apple squash soup – flavors are a powerful vehicle to transport you and your family back to a simpler time.

This holiday season we hope you’re able to unplug from all the distractions of 2016 and connect with what really matters – your family. Happy eating!

5 Tips For A Low-Stress Holiday Dinner

  1. Assemble salads in advance.
    • Go for a salad that uses heartier ingredients that won’t wilt or get soggy too easily like escarole, frisee, cucumbers and tomatoes.
  2. Cut up your veggies to save time.
    • Whether a dish requires boiling or roasting, the smaller the vegetables are cut, the less time it will take for each piece to cook though.
  3. Skip the goose and ditch the roast. 
    • Fire up the grill and opt for a juicy steak instead! With way less prep, mess and fuss than some of the other options, steak is a delicious alternative that your family is sure to enjoy.
  4. Share the responsibility.
    • Have teens or young adults home for the holidays? Encourage them to get involved in the kitchen. Maybe this year’s a good year to pass the torch on a few recipes!
  5. Clean while you cook.
    • Don’t let a messy kitchen keep you away from all the fun and festivities. Keep the counters tidy and load the dish washer as you go – you’ll thank yourself later.
