Impressively Easy Dinners
Simple enough for “just us,” good enough for company.
By Wendy Ruopp
Luckily, the Test Kitchen has put together a fabulous set of easy dishes that also happen to be festive enough for a holiday dinner party. With speedy recipes like Seared Scallops with Crispy Leeks, all I have to do is mash some potatoes and steam some vegetables and I’ve made the transition to competent hostessing. Because I can never resist buying cranberries at this time of year, I’ll make Turkey Tenderloin with Cranberry-Shallot Sauce and bring it out with a flourish. Meat-loving friends will enjoy Moroccan Skirt Steak with Roasted Pepper Couscous or Quick Chicken Cordon Bleu. Thanks to the Test Kitchen, I’ll also be able to entertain vegetarians unapologetically, with savory stuffed acorn squash. (Look at me go!)
Easy, fast and delicious: that’s my kind of entertainment.
