I lean more towards the baking side of things then the straight up cooking side when it comes to wowing from the kitchen. I'm hosting a house warming party and while I have plenty of ideas of things to make, I feel like I'm constantly coming up with the same things over and over. This is where the board comes in and the wonderful regional favorites and differences in background for influence.
My question, as stated by the topic, is what is/are some of your favorite and relatively simple party or housewarming dishes to make? Please no cocktails or the like. Bonus if you can point myself and others towards a tried and true recipe.
