    I do them every January. I have everyone wear their cutest slippers, and I do a soup, garlic bites, and an easy dessert--brownie banana bites or an easy trifle. Prizes go to the cutest and the ugliest slippers. I have 12 shows booked for January. Soups are usually baked potato, chicken torilla, or the white chicken chili.

    do your hosts provide all the ingredients? Do you prepare some and bring it to the show? It seems like three things would take a lot of time to prepare at a show.

    No the host provides it. Most soups take less than 20 min to make/cook....I start the Garlic bites in the oven, do the soup prep, while it is cooking i throw together the dessert, it all lands at the same time. If I do the banana brownie bites I pre-bake the brownies and the host replaces them is the only difference.

    My director does these. She also gives a door prize to the wildest pair of slippers. It's no fun if everyone has plain slippers!! I think she just makes the soup as the demo. I highly recommend the Loaded Baked Potato Chowder. The soup itself is fairly plain and everyone can add the toppings they want.

    HI Nancy- I was wondering if you'd be willing to share your recipe for the chicken tortilla soup? I just a host call and that's exactly what she wants but I'm not finding a recipe anywhere... thanks!

    The Chicken Tortilla Soup is part of the Power Cooking - Chicken Theme. If you go to CC and look under Products and Recipes, and then Theme Cooking Shows, you'll find it. It's very good!

    I was going to do the beer bread in the loaf pan since it's a January guest special with the soup and slippers show.

    I don't do categories. I just give everyone two slips of paper and tell them to vote for their two favorites. Then I tally them up and the top 3 get prizes (if there's a lot of people)

    How do you make sure that the host spreads the word to the guests about the slippers and the "competition"?

    Found this from an earlier thread...I've made them and they're yummy!

    1 can of grands biscuits - any kind, 8 count
    1-2 cloves of garlic
    Parmesan Cheese to grate
    1 Tbls. Italian Seasoning Mix
    1/2 stick of butter

    Preheat oven to 350. Melt butter in 10" saute pan (can use 8" too) press garlic into pan. Using Microplane grater, grate in cheese to cover bottom of pan, sprinkle on seasoning. Cut biscuits into quarters, and toss in pan with butter mixture to coat. Bake for 15-18 minutes - until golden on top.

    What do you bake them in? The bread pan?


    Years ago I had a PC party and the consultant made some sort of garlic cheese bread in the stoneware bread pan using canned biscuits. Anybody have that recipe?

    I'm curious too, Kristen; do you cook the garlic bites in the sauté pan, or transfer to the bar pan?

    I will say, these have been a HUGE hit for me. At my last s&s show, we had quite the slipper turnout! Packers slippers, bear slippers, bunny slippers, kermit the frog slippers, Redskin slippers, Sponge Bob slippers, and so many more! Awarding the winner was REALLY hard- let a non-slipper wearer pick!
