August – Annual Roofdeck Appetizers Party!

Kim may have moved and she may have a different roofdeck view, but we’re still carrying on the Roofdeck Appetizer Tradition!  Our Beacon Hill Roofdeck appetizer fete was held on Thursday, August 25.

SADLY, though, our evening of overlooking Boston on a Beacon Hill roofdeck was thwarted by the rain L  So, we had an indoor gathering at Laura’s instead



  • Cocktail: Stacey – Dark and Stormy
  • Vegetarian Appetizer: Meredith – Corn Cakes – A fun recipe from her Farmer’s Market Cookbook!  Here it is:  2.5 cups fresh corn kernels (about 5 ears); 3 large eggs; 3/4 cup milk; 3 T butter, melted; 3/4 cup flour; 3/4 cup cornmeal; 1 8-oz package fresh mozzarella cheese, grated; 2 T chopped fresh chives; 1 tsp salt; 1 tsp freshly ground pepper
    1. Pulse first 4 ingredients together in a food processor 3-4 times or just until corn is coarsely chopped.
    2. Stir together flour and next 5 ingredients in a large bowl; stir in corn mixture just until dry ingredients are moistened.
    3. Spoon 1/8 cup batter for each cake onto a hot, lightly greased griddle or large nonstick skillet to form 2-inch cakes (do not spread or flatten cakes).
    Cook cakes 3 to 4 minutes or until tops are covered with bubbles and edges look cooked.  Turn and cook other sides 2 to 3 minutes.
  • Vegetarian Appetizer: Laura –
  • Meat Appetizer: Kelly – homemade Gaufrettes with Filet Mignon and Gorgonzola sauce for a pretty amuse-bouche! My mandolin is not great, so it was hard making a full waffle chip, but I got a lot of halves! It was labor intensive, but the flavors were fun! A crip chip with a slice of filet on top, drizzled with the gorgonzola sauce.  The sauce has a nice kick to it, too. Yum!
  • Meat Appetizer: Kim –
  • Dessert: Erin – Key Lime Cannoli!  She used two different recipe versions: Lime Marscapone Cannoli with Mango Sauce and Summer Cannoli. Fresh and light!
  • Sadly missed:  Sarah and Kelly J.
  • Wine: Guests – Thanks to Aaron, Andy, Keegan, Bryan, and Ryan.
