No matter how many parties I host, somehow planning the menu still feels so stress every single time. I've learned to conquer that hump by master simplification, like this perfectly easy (but still elegant!) cheese and cracker spread. All you'll need to do is make a quick trip to the store and spend a few minutes arranging.
A massive ball of cheese on the table makes a big, "welcome to our party! " statement. How could it not? It's lovably retro, easy to make in advance and a cinch to customize. So go on and choose your own cheese ball adventure below — just don't forget the crackers.
If you're anything like Today Show weather anchor Dylan Dryer, your weeknight menu requires minimal prep, minimal mess and minimal cleanup. The simple solution? A dinner you can make in one pot, like this new take on lasagna (and all the other dishes in Dylan's cooking class with chef Ryan Scott).
Everyone knows the best projects are the ones you make yourself. Get inspired by your fellow crafters and find your next creation!
