I tend to have an open door policy all year long. I love it when people stop by, and it's especially nice during the holiday season when I have all my Christmas decorations out and the house is all glittery and bright.
And for guests who show up after dinner, it's nice to throw together a quick dessert with what I consider frig & pantry staples. I always have some of my GF Puff Pastry on hand in the freezer right next to another quick dessert essential - frozen berries. I can sprinkle those berries with some turbinado sugar and a smidge of cornstarch.
Thanks for popping in and feeding a crowd with me. These are my go to pantry and frig items for on the fly entertaining. How do you stay ready for drop by guests?
