Finishing Touches! (+ A New Chef to Choose!)

It's often the little things that make a difference, so this week our theme is...

Finishing Touches!

Make any Curtis Stone dish featuring or including some special finishing touches such as: a sprinkle of this, a dusting of that, sauces, dressings, croutons, condiments, or any other extras that finish your dish with flair!

Make and post your Finishing Touches recipe by Sunday, September 11th and link your picture and post up below.

Please remember to link a thumbnail image and do please leave a comment after you link so that we don't miss out on your dish.

I made a vegan version of Curtis's Hot Chocolate & Ice Cream Floats and even though my vegan whipped cream was not a visual success--they were DELICIOUS! ;-)

Made one of my favorite Curtis dishes so far: Potato and Zucchini Enchiladas with a Fiery Habanero Salsa.

Exciting to see the voting this week!
