A few weeks ago, I hosted my very first “adult” dinner party for my family. Guests were my mother, two of my brothers, my sister-in-law (who is a phenomenal chef and foodie), my “adopted” sister Katie and my boyfriend. I wanted to make as many of my specialties as possible and serve them tapas-style in a casual environment. While I did overdo it (you never want anyone to be hungry), everyone benefited from leftovers and not having to worry about cooking for a few days. Links are included for the recipes of all things made by me below. For my entire arsenal of recipes, click here.
