Food is a form of celebration. For me, there is nothing better than making something to bring to someone else (or someone elses) and watching that person’s face transform as they love what they’re tasting. It’s a way to share what I’m thinking and what I like with what I hope you will. This whole blog is a form of entertaining in that sense, but what this page is really for is A) you’re having a dinner that you want to impress or B) you’re invited somewhere and need to bring something or C) it’s a holiday- which may really just be a variation on A or B.

Another clue before you dive in… I LOVE finding those recipes that are easy to make but disproportionately heavy on the wow factor compared to the effort you put in. Some of these do take some (fun) work, and many others will shock you in their simplicity. Happy entertaining my friends!
