Dinner Party – Deliciousness!

A favorite hobby of mine is curating recipes. I’m a self-taught cook (more Rachel Ray, than Wolfgang Puck). I find solace in ingredients, and joy in family gatherings around the table. When designing a menu for a recent dinner party, I headed directly to my Pinterest recipe boards and started perusing the deliciousness I have parked for such an occasion.

For dinner with friends, I was looking for a chicken recipe that would be unexpected, along with a creative pasta that would accompany the happy bird.

Get ready to lose your face, because this menu was beyond expectation…

Chicken with Tomato and Basil Cream Sauce
Pasta with Brown Butter and Pine Nuts
Sauteed Broccoli with Olive Oil FinishMixed Greens with Blue Cheese, Pear Shavings and Candied Walnuts
Crusty Bread with Garlic Butter

This menu was off the charts delicious when it was served, but the leftovers were even better because the flavors of the chicken really molded together overnight.

If you are looking for an easy dinner party menu for your next extravaganza, I hope these recipes will help you to be the hostess with the mostess!

WE…

Love to play

Exercise our imaginations as much as our bodies

Know lipstick, a blow out and lashes can change everything

Live with wanderlust

Crave experiences worth talking about

Travel to feed our souls

Design events that create stories

Share the awesome people, places, and things on the planet

Believe laughter should be a food group

Cultivate relationships as much as our reputation

Understand lifestyle is not a luxury, but a choice

Love when hanging upside down feels right side up

Cherish creating memories with our families

Champion eating well, drinking often, and being infinitely merry

Know a small but mighty group of friends is our lifeblood

Give ourselves daily permission to design the life we want to live
