I love feeding a crowd of hungry family and friends. Long before the designated day, I pour through cookbooks and my favorite recipe blogs, looking for the perfect recipe.
Then comes shopping for all those great ingredients. I wander down the isles, challenging myself to keep the budget down. This, of course, never happens.
For days before, I start chopping and prepping. Pulling out all my party gear, and torturing my husband with requests to clean this, or pick up that.
Then comes party day. Boy am I in my glory then! Watching as people come and go, carrying plates of food back and forth to the table. They visit and laugh, enjoying every morsel of my labor of love.
Over the years, I've collected a few recipes that feed a crowd, and have always been a hit. I'd like to share them with you.
