Gatherings are full of all the things we love...getting together with family & friends, sharing conversation and laughter, and eating delicious food.
Whether you're celebrating a birthday or anniversary, hosting the kids' friends for a slumber party, or getting a few people together for a casual game night or backyard movie night, Quick & Easy Recipes for Gatherings will help you make it memorable. Fill the appetizer table with creamy dips and spreads, crunchy snack mixes, spicy chicken wings and savory sausages...there's something for everyone! Or make family night special, sharing a yummy dip with chips while watching sports on television. For heartier appetites, platters of sliders or sandwich loaves, cheesy nachos and saucy ribs are just the ticket. Cook up a big pot of chowder or bake a comfort-food casserole, and round out the menu with a big veggie-packed salad. Dessert is really the star of the show...a sheet pan chocolate cake or sweet fruit tart will feed a crowd.
You can plan a whole party menu with the recipes in this book, jazz up your tried & true favorites with one or two new-to-you treats, or even cook up a fun weeknight meal for the family. They're all so easy, you'll spend less time in the kitchen! You'll also find helpful entertaining tips to make planning a breeze. So start making your guest list...every day's a party when we gather together!
