There’s something about afternoon tea that ignites the Downton Abbey in all of us. Tea cookies are an ideal treat for guests because they’re not an overly rich dessert. Add some matcha to the mix, and you’ve got a burst of pure green tea flavor without the bitterness.


Wheat Berry Arugula Salads

Making the transition into a healthier season is something you and your guests can get behind. If you’ve scoffed at salads before, let this hearty recipe be the solution to your new and improved you.


Cupcake Decorating Made Easy

So instead of long lines and sold-out flavors, you can still create something worth savoring and save the overhyped trendy stuff for next time.


Romantic Valentine Garlands

Sometimes the hangover struggle is all too real, but a hostess is always prepared. Whether you’re hosting friends or a significant other, impress them with a dish that cures all your worries. With hearty potatoes and protein-packed ingredients, you can whip this up in under a half hour and feel like a chef.

Other than leaving a party with a resolution, give your guests a sendoff with some favors that fit the theme. Everyone’s got a clean slate going into 2015, why not give them a nudge in the right direction?
