Sometimes you want to skip the formalities and get right to the fun stuff, and a dessert party lets you do just that. It's
a recipe for pure pleasure. This sweet spread offers a little something for everyone: lightly glazed, herb-scented cake, bittersweet
cocoa meringues, and a galette featuring ripe plums. Make your desserts beforehand, then simply put on fresh coffee and pour
prosecco once the guests arrive.

Entertaining doesn't always mean hours of planning, prep, and production. Sometimes our best evenings are spent relaxing with
friends over good conversation and simple meals. We've gathered menus and one-dish meals to keep casual gatherings... well,
casual. No fuss―no problem.
At the center of our Vegetarian Holiday Supper menu is pure luxury: the flavors of truffles in a mushroom-studded lasagna.
Omit the anchovies from the Broccolini recipe to make it vegetarian-friendly.
The flavors of Asia, Italy, America, and the Middle East: total harmony in cooking, at least.

We love this open house menu for its versatility: a dress-up evening or a casual day, a low-key Sunday afternoon drop-around
or an elegant Saturday night, even a New Year's Eve. The dishes are small, full of flavor, suitable for adults or kids, and
can be dressed up or dressed down. The best part? This beautiful party menu, including drinks, comes in under $10 per guest.
Now, that's reason to celebrate!
