Admit it, Martha Stewart has talent. I love this photo of a recent casual gathering she hosted and it would be so easy to replicate for your own party.
I grudgingly subscribed to MARTHA STEWART LIVING (does her empire need my $19?), and I am now a fan. While Martha and her staff do many things well, the woman is an hors d'oeuvre goddess. Martha's book is a must for anyone who loves to entertain.
All of the recipes can be found in her book or on MARTHA'S website.
A few of my favorites:
Potatoes with Creme Fraiche
Spicy Shrimp and Avocado
Brioche with Creme Fraiche and Caviar
White Crudite with Buttermilk Dip
Baked Artichoke Dip
