Party time! Cooking with a large group is really fun. Our church encourages members to offer small groups with any topic of interest. I offered a "cooking together with friends" group and limited the number to 12. Many of you have gatherings of friends or family that are about that size and these recipes are really fun and flexible for such a group. Who doesn't like a pasta entree or a fruit crisp for dessert? Since the quantities for the recipes on my website are mostly for six - I doubled them. Each person was assigned to bring some of the ingredients and we were able to keep it under $8.00 apiece. Everyone was also asked to participate in the clean-up. I've included the menu items which are linked to their recipes on my website. Since each recipe makes six generous servings, we found that we had a lot left over, however, we didn't have heavy eaters in our group. You should take into account the individuals that are coming to your group and adjust the quantities needed, though they do make great left-overs. Have this great meal with good friends and enjoy the party!
Below is a one minute video of the making of the meal. Cooking together, not only results in wonderful food, but creates a sense of community and smiles of contentment.
