It’s always nice to have some recipes on hand that will serve a crowd. Better yet is having a collection of simple recipes that people ask you to make over and over again. If you’re asked to make a dish for a large group there are 3 things that you should keep in mind to avoid fluster. First, find recipes that are made with ingredients that everyone likes. Next, look for recipes that are appropriate for the occasion. Finally, choose a recipe that is simple to make.
