Cooking Tip #6

Know what your guests like

Serve a dish that you know your family and friends will enjoy. Then add some others that perhaps they have never tried – it’s a great way to get them involved in the meal.

Cooking Tip #7

Ask your guests to help

Having your guests help with meal preparation is another way to get them involved. And it really adds to the fun in the kitchen!

Cooking Tip #8

A meal is only as good as its ingredients

Don’t cut corners or buy cheaper spices, meats, vegetables or other ingredients. Fresh is always best, and your guests will taste the difference.

Cooking Tip #10

Make ahead

Are you having a dish that you can make the day before? It really saves time!
