Best Easter Hostess Gifts

Loving these Easter gifts we discovered on RealEstateClientGifts.com. Not only do they make great company holiday gifts, they would also make lovely Easter hostess gifts.  Admittedly, the daffodil cheesecake is probably more than the average guest wants to spend, but the others are all under $40.oo, well within the average hostess gift price range, especially when attending a special occasion dinner. Easter dinner is a big deal – not a last minute throw together neighborhood BBQ. Your hosts have most likely spent hours and hours preparing for this day, so a lovely thank you is definitely called for.

How to Get Ready to Party >> 5 Home Entertaining Essentials

This morning we were inspired by an article we stumbled upon an article on PopSugar addressing how to get ready to party and what exactly guests notice in your home.  All of us who entertain at all know that one of the most stressful aspects of home entertaining, whether you are hosting a dinner party or your child’s first birthday party, is getting your house in shape for your guests.  Yes, you do need to clean but focus your time and efforts on making your bathrooms and kitchen spotless. Otherwise, shut the doors to rooms your guests do not need access to.  As for the rest, we sorta agree there are generally just a handful of things your guests will notice about your home.  No one will say – wow she so needs a new sofa or her carpet really deserves a cleaning.  Your home decor is almost irrelevant so long as the rooms your guests see are tidied up and lack clutter.  You can transform any room from drab to fab by implementing a few of these simple home entertaining essentials.

Best Ever Meatloaf Recipe

One Meatloaf Recipe to Rule Them All, Best Ever Meatloaf Recipe

Bon Appétit’s One Meatloaf Recipe to Rule Them All | Article By Dawn Perry | Photo by Alex Lau

Best Ever Meatloaf Recipe

We are always searching for the perfect meatloaf recipe for one of of all time favorite dinner party themes, the ultra casual but oh so much fun  Gastropub | Craft Beer Dinner Party.  So we were thrilled to have found this recipe for the One Meatloaf to Rule Them All. It turns out that over the course of two weeks, Bon Appétit’s Test Kitchen contributor Jessie Damuck and author  Dawn Perry ate meatloaf every single day, sometimes twice a day. And while meatloaf is not typically part of their regular diet, Jessie had taken on the noble task of developing Bon Appétit’s Best Meatloaf. Not a turkey loaf, not a lentil loaf, a meatloaf. It doesn’t sound pretty. Go on, say it, “Meat. Loaf.” But a meatloaf like this one is a thing of beauty.

Here is not only the recipe but also a description of what went into developing their recipe for the best meatloaf ever. Continue Reading →
