I would consider “hosting parties” a hobby of mine. Honestly, I will find any excuse to decorate my house and gather our friends for food & cocktails, whether it’s two people or ten!
Having hosted a time or two, I’ve learned a few tricks of the trade. For example, your menu should consist of dishes that both require baking and that DON’T require baking. An added bonus is any item that can be prepped in advance! I learned the hard way that filling your menu with multiple items that need to bake in the oven right before serving is a recipe for disaster (no pun intended).
I’ve also “hired” a new sous chef and her name is The Pampered Chef! If you haven’t heard of them and you enjoy cooking, boy, you’re in for a real treat…and I’m not talking about baked goods!
The Pampered Chef is a direct seller of my favorite kitchen tools! They have everything from mixers to cookbooks …and now I’m giving you a chance to bring some into your own home!
