    I am hosting my second party tomorrow and as of right now my host's home is without power. They do have a generator but it doesn't run the stove. She is a good friend and we are just going to roll with it anyhow. :)

    I was planning on making the veggie pizza. What would be another alternative to make or do if I can't bake or use the stove?

    I was thinking of making something at home and bringing it and talking about the tools I used. I'm just now sure what to do.

    Thanks so much!

    Take some chicken already cooked, and make the Southwestern Salad. It's yummy and everything can be prepared there....use the salad chopper.

    For desert, melt some chocolate chips and pour into silicone floral pan....refrigerate to let set....you can pop them out at show while explaining that all you did was micro the chips.

    Does she have a microwave that would run? You could do a micro recipe if so? Or do a search for no bake recipes. Or actually a good one that you could start at home is the Club House Chicken Squares. Even if you can't use the fridge to cool them no one has ever complained that they aren't any good. You would probably just have to cook the chicken, bacon and base at home but you can still demo most of the recipe. I'm sure you can find the recipe but I have it in word so I'll attach it.

    You could definitely bring it already made. I do that a lot, especially when they want a quicker show or have seen a lot of the products already. I'll then let them play with other tools, show the Pineapple Wedger, etc.

    Still no power as of right now. I've decided I would try the volcano cake in the rice cooker. I am also going to look into the southwestern salad but I didn't see a recipe for it?

    I'd personally do a no-cook recipe or take one already cooked. Generators can only run so much, and a microwave would be a high-wattage item. I would feel really bad if I used too much power. :D but that's just me.

    Any trifle, if you have a trifle bowl. Any layered salad - also in the trifle bowl. OR, Do one of the no-bake desserts - the Pineapple Mango torte is really good! Also, a few seasons back is the awesome No-bake Cherry Cheesecake.

    I'd be inclined to show the APC/S and sprinkle with cinnamon/sugar.

    You could even do some layered Batter Bowl mix recipes, or even Power Cooking Chicken or Power Cooking Beef - you just cook the meat up ahead of time; bring the bags already portioned for folks to hands-on interactively make up the recipes.
