This Year, the Only Table We’re Setting Is the "Kids' Table"
We're highlighting clever tips and tricks for pulling off any holiday get-together without breaking a sweat. It's Your Party, after all, so you might as well enjoy it!
Who doesn't love a good party? For me, there's nothing better than figuring out the menu for a large get-together by burying myself under a mountain of cookbooks and recipes. Growing up in an Italian family, I learned from a young age that there is nothing more important than spending time with loved ones, making memories, and of course, eating delicious food.
Earlier this year, I launched a campaign to make my dad's Thanksgiving stuffing a year-round event. So far, I have a campaign manager (my older sister, Zoe), and one fervent supporter (my little sister, Clem). Here's why we think it has year-round potential as a party dish:
You can prep the whole thing in advance, chill or freeze, then bake with a little more liquid added when you're ready to serve.
It's a "kitchen sink" recipe—you can swap or skip the sausage, sub in any nuts or seeds or dried fruit you like, lose the mushrooms, add some oysters, or if you're bringing it over to my apartment and want me to beg for seconds, add a whole lot of cheese over the top.
It travels like a dream. The more it gets jostled around, the better it tastes—I swear.
Not only does it feed a crowd, but it's also painfully easy to double (or triple) if you need a bigger batch.
Since I hit the campaign trail—which mainly involves feeding my loved ones warm bites of the stuffing—it's really taken off. In fact, these days, I'm rarely welcome at a potluck without it.
