Get great ideas for reunion fare from Curtis Aikens–a guy who really knows how to cook.
One of Curtis's passions is using fresh fruit and vegetables as much as possible–like those found at produce stands and farmer's markets around the country. Barbecue Eggplant is an incredibly simple vegetable dish that can be either broiled or grilled. Plus, minimal prep means more time to spend visiting with family!
For Curtis, food is more than–well, food! It's a basic part of community, and that is never more evident than at a family
reunion. "It's that social interaction and breaking of bread that makes preparing and eating food so much fun," he says.
This Chocolate Zucchini Cake is a marvelous finale to a home-cooked spread. It's easy to make and earned five stars from MyRecipes reviewers, who say it is "very moist and very chocolatey" and "a great cake to bring with you if you're asked to bring dessert."
