Though you may be one of the few who consider yourself a “super-hoster” who is not phased in the least when you entertain, chances are you are like the rest of us who find it at least somewhat stressful (if not very stressful).
1). Buy “upgraded” ready-made ingredients
This tip works especially well for appetizers, especially if you want to serve something pretty and impressive looking without spending any time in prep mode (except for chopping a few raw veggies).
3). Have a healthy dessert option.
So maybe you’re not ready to give up having cookies or cake for the finale, but its always a great idea to have a healthy dessert option for you AND your guests to eat.
