How Much Do I Love Anderson Cooper?

Enough to stay up well past midnight to watch the ball drop with him on CNN. But we'll start with bubbles & Party Treats & Diana Krall around 9-ish, because some things just can't wait.

Party Treats
2 boxes Trader Joe's Vegetable Bird's Nests (julienned veggies formed into tempura-enhanced nests) 
4 oz. smoked salmon
Crème fraîche
Fresh chives or dill

Preheat oven to 400 degrees.  Place Nests on a baking sheet and, reducing oven to 350, bake for about 10 minutes on each side until crispy and golden.  Remove & let cool slightly.  Layer with salmon and a dollop of crème fraîche, then top with finely chopped chives or dill and serve.  Makes 16 bite-sized morsels.  (Also yummy when ossetra caviar is substituted for salmon & layered on top of the crème fraîche.)

Happy 2009!
