Welcome to my favorite, always reliable, completely delicious, never-fail dinner party recipe! Dinner party chicken has been my go-to meal whenever I need something I can whip up quickly, that uses simple ingredients, but still comes out with the pizzazz you NEED to make a special evening special. And if you are wanting to make a regular old Thursday night special, it’s perfect for that too.
So if you are wanting a can’t miss dinner party recipe full of bright and colorful veggies and a luxurious, deceptively simple sauce, grab some chicken and let’s make it!
So here’s how this recipe for easy steak au poivre (otherwise known as steak with pepper) came about. We were ambling through a new supermarket near our house recently, and they have an enormous meat counter. And right in the center was a glorious display of pepper-crusted filet mignons, all ready for the cooking. I think the Southern husband actually got a little misty-eyed, and it got my competitive juices flowing, steak-wise.
So I picked up a couple of plain filet mignon steaks and decided I was going to one-up the supermarket steaks with a creamy, slightly boozy sauce to go along with the pepper crust. And let’s just say the Southern husband is cheery again. Ready to kick your steak up a notch? Let’s make it!
Oh, this recipe. If you love pasta, if you love basil, if you love a plate of cheesy, creamy, comfort food deliciousness, then this recipe for tortellini with basil cream sauce has your name on it. It’s had my name on it ever since I first made it, and it’s usually the first thing I make when the first sweet basil makes an appearance in the summer. Oh, and just for good measure, it’s one of those recipes that has you in and out of the kitchen in about 15 minutes or so.

Mussels are up there among my very favorite kinds of shellfish, and this recipe for mussels with shallot cream sauce is one of the reasons why. They are delicious, they are inexpensive, they are reliably easy to cook, and they are all kinds of dramatic with their pretty blue shells. Combine all THAT with some delicate angel hair pasta and a creamy, dreamy shallot wine sauce and I am head over heels in seafood love.
This also gives me the chance to tell you about one of the Southern husband’s preferred way to eat certain dishes like this one, but in the meantime, let’s make it!
It would be impossible to keep count of all time times this Heath Bar Birthday Cake has been requested in my mama’s house, not only for birthdays but also for holidays, parties of all kinds. And sometimes just because someone or another has a sudden and urgent need for a light and lovely angel food cake frosted with a decadent creamy frosting filled with crushed bits of Heath bars, which are toffee candy bars covered in chocolate (and you can also get them in packages of baking bits, too). I’m pretty certain that my mama goes all in and makes the angel food cake herself, but whenever I’m the one making it I go for the pre-made angel food cake from the market, and spend my time making the delectable frosting. Which means this cake is all of five ingredients, with no baking and maximum dramatic creamy Heath Bar deliciousness. Let’s make it!
