Anna's Family Kitchen was inspired by my love of food and desire to feed my family healthy, home cooked wholesome meals that are beautifully presented and appealing but don’t require hours of prep in the kitchen.

Scallop & Chorizo Canapé Skewers

These skewers are a great canape idea. They can all be prepared in one griddle (or frying) pan and take less than 10 minutes. Finish with a cranberry and splash of green from a single basil leaf and they look super festive for Christmas.
