Though I posted these recipes individually, I wanted to collate them, since they comprised the menu for a recent dinner party. Most people think of dinner parties as stuffy and fancy, but I maintain they can be fun and casual, depending on the food you serve. I opted for items that mostly could be eaten by hand, so people could stand and mingle while eating. I also chose to serve familiar food (albeit dressed up) to put guests at ease.
