Start with an appetizer like cheese and crackers so that your guests aren’t starving.


Make sure to have enough utensils and cutting boards for each guest. I have a few Kitchen IQ  The Potato Tools that make it possible for several guests to peel potatoes and slice them with ease. The Potato Tool has non-stick stainless steel coated blades on the straight edge peeler and paring knife, scrub brush for cleaning potatoes and other veggies, and a paring knife, which stores safely inside the peeler handle.

I kinda obsessed with all the Kitchen IQ Kitchen items that make cooking and prepping so much easier. I also adore The Edge Grip Knife Sharpener. It has a unique design sharpens straight edge double-beveled Euro / American style knives with two stages of sharpening, in one small compact unit at a great value! There is also a coarse sharpening slot includes carbide blades that quickly sharpen dull or damaged knives with just a few pulls. Fine slot’s ceramic rods are ideal for finishing and polishing the edge, and are perfect for light touch-ups to an already sharp knife. Edge Grip Bottom allows stable sharpening on the counter top or edge of the counter top or table. Designed in the USA by Smith’s Consumer Products, Inc. the Edge Experts Since 1886.
