We will be hosting a very large Yule gathering in our home next month, and I need ideas on ways to feed people affordably but impressively with simple but very elegant dishes. We set the bar pretty high last year, so the H is O. [more inside]

Need recollections, tips and inspiration for a dinner party themed around the Oscars Nominees for Best Picture

On Saturday, I'm having a french themed cooking party. The idea is that we all cook collaboratively to make a meal together. So far we have five confirmed guests. So far we Cassoulet and Reiene de Saba (cake) on the menu. Please suggest ideas for menu items and ways to pull off the timing. I have an induction cook top with five burners, two ovens, a fairly large kitchen with lots of counter space, and most basic cooking implements-but if there's something specialized you think I should have, please share that too! Also I own mastering the art of French cooking and the joy of cooking so I'd like to stick to recipes in those cookbooks or available on the web! thanks!
What are easy to make meals that are high in (thc storing) lipids and would be good for a party? [more inside]
I'm organizing a monthly event where I will be feeding appetizers to up to 100 people. I'm a good cook, who will have much of the food pre-prepared. Unfortunately, I have a negligible budget. I need what is prepared to be tasty and diverse crowd pleasers, using ingredients that are as inexpensive as possible -- possibly available in bulk -- while still containing some protein. Carbs should be fairly healthy, unrefined, inexpensive ones. There can be some items made with flour, but not to excess. There will also need to be vegetarian dishes. Extra points for food that can be frozen and prepared as needed. I am a good cook, have a wide variety of spices, etc., rice for basmati and sushi. I also have good access to Indian, Asian, and Mexican supermarkets. I'm fine with doing extensive cooking in advance, so long as what I have is both affordable and easy-to-serve on the night of the event. Any ideas / recipes?
I'm throwing a Cupcake Candyland party that promises to be a sugar&booze fueled shindig of over-the-top girliness. I have questions about cupcakes that aren't really cupcakes, gluten-free cupcake recipes, frosting & decorating, and pink cocktails that utilize homemade grenadine. [more inside]
We're having a "tiny food" party / BBQ, and I need menu suggestions. Sliders (obviously), cornichons (or gherkins) and tiny cupcakes are readily available. Coronitas (7 oz. Coronas) to drink. So, what else? Other mains, sides, desserts, beverages. Any suggestions would be helpful. [more inside]
