I love cooking for other people and these are the recipes that have gotten the most compliments! They're all very Google-able. 👍🏼
  1. Barefoot Contessa roast chicken

    Better than any scented candle for making your house smell like a home! My dad always asks for it when I have him over for dinner. I use potatoes and zucchini instead of carrots and fennel and they melt into garlicky, lemony goodness every time.
  2. Joy the Baker banana bread with chocolate chunks
    Static
    My grandma loves chocolate and my grandpa loves banana bread, so I bake this for them for every birthday and anniversary. I use muffin tins and it bakes in half the time!
  3. Smitten Kitchen raspberry coconut macaroons

    This is how you win at Passover.
  4. Smitten Kitchen challah
    Static
    "You MADE this??"
  5. Leite's consummate chocolate chip cookie (via Smitten Kitchen)

    People freak out over these cookies!! (I use regular chocolate chips and they still turn out amazing.) Bring them to a meeting and everyone will be extra nice to you.
  6. Barefoot Contessa minestrone
    Static
    This is a good one for winter dinner parties with some bread and salad.
  7. Atlantic Beach Pie
    Static
    It's a saltine cracker crust with lemon filling and unsweetened whipped cream on top. I made it for my birthday this year and we all had seconds :)
  8. Mrs. Butterworth waffles on my Mickey Mouse waffle iron

    Especially with Nutella ✌🏼️✌🏼
