I'm a magazine editor turned freelance writer and blogger. My mantra: Parties are always more fun when everyone downs one or two drinks more than they should. What you’ll find on my blog: Menus and entertaining know-how that let you hang out—not stress out. What you won’t: DIY decorating projects (who has time for that stuff?) and recipes that won't keep you slaving over the stove while your guests bathe in bubbly.
