The 10 Entertaining Recipes You Loved This Month

December  6, 2014

This month you went all out; you were the very definition of a gracious and organized host. You showered guests with snacks as they waited for their meal, refilled their glasses with inventive cocktails, and made sure that there was cake -- lots of cake

Overnight guests were met with bright eggs, warm biscuits, savory spreads, and -- you couldn't help yourself -- even more cake. At a point, you worried they might move in. It's a testament to your hospitality, warmth, and talent in the kitchen. We think we'll stop by, too, if you'll have us.

Wondering why the buttermilk biscuits are listed with so many comments under it from multiple people ending up with flat biscuits due to possible error in the recipe. :-?
