Since there isn’t a single difficult recipe in the bunch, you can put everything together in a flash. Then you can enjoy the fun and conversation.

Your guests will certainly think you’re a brilliant host. After all, your cool calmness belies what tastes like you spent hours in the kitchen. If your guests ask for recipes, it’s up to you whether or not you want to divulge your secrets about how easy the food was to prepare.

Enjoy Your Guests

A lot of party hosts make the mistake of getting too bogged down in details. Instead, they should be having fun with the guests. This is your opportunity to shine in more ways than one.
