There is nothing quite as special as gathering with friends. You look forward to it with great anticipation, and you love making them feel welcome and a little pampered. And so you make sure everyone has a drink in hand and something to nibble because it elevates the moment into a celebration of friendship. It can be tempting to go a little overboard and wear yourself out in the preparations. But remember that your friends love you and want you to feel relaxed so that you can enjoy the time together. With that in mind, Mark and I always pair one or two of our favorite recipes with a couple of assembled items from the market to keep things manageable. Cooking should always be a joy… just like gathering with friends.
