  • Catering recipes add flavor to engagement party

    Our family has been a busy one this week. We spent June 12 hosting an engagement party for our daughter and her fiancé.

    It was only for the family, but the groom’s family is quite large. It was fun for me because now that I no longer cater, I have the time to do more meals and parties for friends and family, which I love to do.

    Since I did not know the likes and dislikes of the group we were entertaining, I tried to include some very simple, but well-liked foods that I have served over the years.
