Holiday Series: Party Food

Many people go away for holidays. However, for many people, December is the month of visitors and house guests.  Having guests staying in the house can be stressful because of hospitality that needed to be provided for guests. Food is one of elements that can impress the guests. Therefore, planning on what to serve your guests in advance is essential. I recommend serving the food that can be prepared in advance and required short time to prepare before serving. Preparing some party food and freeze them in advance so that it can be heated and served when some friends drop by. By doing this, you will have time to dress up or chat with your guests. Isn't that great? Those food can also be delicious breakfast or afternoon snack for your in-house guests.

 Let's prepare the menu for a cocktail party!

:: Tip
 Even though each baked dish may requires short baking time, all the time needed to bake all dishes can be long. Therefore, do not include several bakes dishes in one meal. The combination of the recipes on the menu should be the combination of some baked dishes ans some cold dishes.
