Be the Hostess with the Mostess at your next party

Whether your hosting a Stella Dot Party, a Girls Night out or just having a few friends over this summer, why not impress your guest with some fabulous easy recipes. I've partnered with Chef Michael Hall of Richmond, Virginia to bring some fabulous recipes to you each month. You'll soon be the Hostess with the Mostess Fabulous party on the block! ( just go with the flow, I was on a roll for a second)

Chef Michael is well known in Richmond for his mouth watering Crab Cakes and Rum Bread Pudding, but he's got a lot more than just these tummy teasers under his recipe belt. He's been Executive Chef at Ukrop's Super Markets Inc, and Joe's Market, None Such Place, The Berkeley Hotel and owner of The Vine Restaurant. His most recent position is Executive Chef at the Bull and Bea
r Club, a premier private club that's been in downtown Richmond, Virginia for 40 years.

I'd tell you to stop by and check our more of Chef Michaels recipes, but without an exclusive membership, that can't happen, so each month I'll bring Chef Michael to you. The connection...parties, fashionable, trendy and things you MUST know of course! This month, Chef Michael shares with us his Pumpkin Tiramisu with Almond Macaroons...sounds lovely!
