I love to host dinner parties, but I really don’t like doing all the work. My husband is this huge foodie. I make a gourmet meal almost every day.

So over my many years of entertaining…

I have come up with a few tips and tricks to pull off an outstanding spread, while making my guests…

Thanksgiving Planning

When I was growing up, Thanksgiving at my Grandmother's was always a huge deal. The entire family got together - my mother has seven siblings, and all of my aunts, uncles and cousins were always there for Thanksgiving.

Two rooms full of food and desserts on a table near the porch - it was definitely a sight I'll cherish in my memory forever.
