What to Bring to a Party When You Don't Have Time to Cook
Few things are more stressful than prepping for Thanksgiving when you don't have time. If you've been working late, shopping for gifts, or just haven't found the time to cook a dish, Camille Styles has a simple platter that takes minutes to make (but still looks seriously impressive). "I'm a big fan of appetizers that are assembled using high-quality store-bought ingredients. When you're juggling a main course and side dishes, who has time to cook some fancy hors-d'oeuvres?" she tells MyDomaine.
Her go-to quick dish is a "seasonal platter" that makes predictable cheese boards pale in comparison. "Like a cheese plate, this platter is a crowd-pleaser with something for everyone, but I love that it brings a fresh twist to the table," she says. Oh, and it's just as Instagrammable. "The key to making this feel thoughtful is to focus on a beautiful presentation—a mix of brilliant colors, varied textures, and of course, great serving pieces."
Styles, who is Target's entertaining editor, recommends keeping these ingredients in your pantry ahead of time so you can assemble it in minutes. Forget cheese platters—this seasonal spread is a guaranteed crowd-pleaser.
