I see many of my readers are fans of the Barefoot Contessa like I am.  If you’re still looking for a few ideas to round out your holiday get togethers, check out the links below.  And don’t forget to bookmark one or two – they’re perfect any time of the year.

I love Ina Garten’s quote: “I try to greet my friends with a drink in my hand, a warm smile on my face, and great music in the background, because that’s what gets a dinner party off to a fun start.”  This is the hostess I’d like to be, and I hope your holidays are filled with similar warm welcomes.

I’m outta here until January 7.  Here’s to a fantastic 2014 – enjoy!
