Creating the perfect dinner menu is always a challenge so we picked some of our favorites here!
Our favorite Celebrity Chef is Amanda Freitag! She's shared her recipes with you for years on Chopped and in her new book "The Chef Next Door".
Don't have the book? You can order it on Amazon today! Click the link to the left to buy Amanda's best-seller and bring it as a hostess gift or get it for yourself and use it as a guide to some of the best dinner party recipes!
We added a few of our favorites below and hope you enjoy them. If you're like me and not the best cook in the world, take time to make a few of these and try them out weeks leading up to your party. Take notes on your "practice" dishes so you can cook them up to perfection by the time your holiday party arrives.
Snap a few pics on your phone and use them as a reference. Prepare as many ingredients as possible the day before so you have them handy and the prep work is done!
