Entertaining With :: Aida Mollenkamp

I’ve been a fan of Aida Mollenkamp’s ever since spotting her approachable and totally delicious cooking style a few years ago on the Food Network show, Ask Aida. However, my fan-girl status turned into total girl crush-dom when we shared lunch and a glass of pinot grigio on her recent visit to Austin, and I was totally blown away by her quick wit, obvious intelligence and even-more-stunning-in-person beauty. I begged her to give us a peek into her laid-back style as our next “Entertaining With” subject, then thanked my lucky stars when she said yes and invited us to come along for a “girls’ night in” at her sister Amy’s place. If you haven’t already, be sure to check out Aida’s site, Pairs Well With Food, for a constant flow of amazing recipes — it’s always one of my first stops in the what-to-make-for-dinner-tonight search. Take it away, Aida!

My must-have entertaining tool:
A solid playlist and good lighting because they not only set tone but can also make up for a lack of ambiance or decor.
