Did any of you see Gladys Knight co-hosting on The Talk yesterday? The audience went wild seeing Gladys join the girls. She talks about dancing on Dancing With The Stars and making it through another week. She was so relieved. Lots more here. You can also see she and Tristan dance for the show below. So cute!! Such class acts!
You, our readers, never cease to amaze me with the great ideas you come up with 😀 After someone mentioned in another thread that some of the Strictly Come Dancing fans had a sort of food & drink recipe exchange, some of you suggested a “PureDWTS Cookbook” – so thus this weekly edition was born! We’re hoping to give you guys a new DWTS-themed recipe each weekend, so we can all enjoy some tasty snacks & refreshing drinkables together during the show on Monday night. And we need your help – send us your DWTS-themed recipes at firstname.lastname@example.org and each week, me, Heidi, & Vogue will pick one or two to share. The sky is really the limit with this one, kids – recipes can be appetizers, desserts, main courses, breads, even cocktails! The only rule is that it somehow has to be DWTS-related – either to one of the pros, the celebs this season, the judges, the dances themselves, etc. Get creative! Here are some suggestions to get your kitchen mojo working…
*Dance-themed dishes – it’s your interpretation of the dances, with food & drink as the medium. What might a samba casserole look like? How ’bout a foxtrot pie? Or a tango party punch? 🙂
*Dishes from the celebs’ & pros’ hometowns – how ’bout some traditional Greek & Boston-themed recipes for Maria? Some good ol’ “soul food” recipes for our Empress of Soul, Gladys? Even some cheese-filled dishes for Donald the Packer!
*Recipes that correspond to the theme week – maybe some popcorn balls for movie theme week? Or a sinful chocolate dessert for “guilty pleasure” week? We don’t know all the theme weeks yet, but keep an eye out as they’re released, and send us some fun ideas 😉
So now that we’ve got your creative juices flowing, we want your ideas for Rock Week recipes! We’d like to get them posted Sunday, so that everyone has a chance to go to the grocery store to get the necessary ingredients for Monday night 🙂 So ready…set…COOK!
