Make it easy! Cook up a main dish and have everyone bring a side, app or dessert. Small plates dishes are also a great option and typically things that can be made ahead or you can take in from your favorite local market or deli. I like to serve Italian green beans, sautéed asparagus, broccoli or kale salad, strawberry bruschetta, and other recipes I can prepare the night before. I recently started using these glass canning jars for just about everything! They’re great for jams, jellies and salad dressings, but I also love storing crudité in them until I’m ready to serve. I’ve also used them yogurt parfaits, on-the-go salads, and the latest - cupcake jars.
