Last spring we took the whole month of April to party, party, party! It was a month of entertaining, with tips on throwing birthday parties, picking out wine, and making tasty appetizers and snacks. Here's a look back at some of the recipes and ideas that emerged that month, from crisp cheesy poufs, to an addictive gluten-free flatbread.
