Tip # 6: Test your recipes
I often get a lot of my inspiration for the menu of a party from the Internet or cookbooks I have accumulated at home. The images I see look so amazing and easy, I always think my food will turn out looking exactly how it does in the picture. But this is not often the case! The last thing you want to have happen, is test out a recipe the day of a party and have it not turn out. Testing your recipe a week or two before your party can really help you save time and present a dish that looks and taste amazing. Its also a great way to personalize the recipe with something you might not see in your cook book .
