Hey. I'm Kate. I was voted "Most Likely to Become Martha Stewart" by my sorority in college because I hosted some fabulous pre-parties and always had drunk foods and a very clean bathroom available for the after-party. The truth is that I'm a lazy girl who likes to be able to drink at her parties, but who is obsessed with having things look, taste and smell good. So the key is to have things that are easy, can be made ahead and popped in the oven when the goodies on the table get low, and that can still be handled when I get a buzz on.
This is my guide to fabulous party foods and tricks of the trade. And probably some crafts.
