We’ve all fallen into the trap of setting the bar a little too high when it comes to entertaining. We see these celebrity chefs like the Pioneer Woman and Paula Deen throwing amazing parties and cooking for large groups of people to show off how great of a host they are, but when I’ve tried to throw parties like this, something always seems to go wrong! And it’s not really anyone’s fault. My expectations for the party are just too high from watching the Food Network too much. With these 14 Celebrity Chef Copycat Recipes, though, you don’t have to think about the food. Just focus on being the best host you can be!
Paula Deen’s got the perfect desserts to bring life to your dessert table like an orange coffee cake recipe and some fancy brie en croute. The Pioneer Woman has a potatoes au gratin side dish that everyone will be talking about. And the legend herself, Julia Child has the fancy French main dish that she’s famous for—beef bourguignon! Give these recipes a try, and you’ll be throwing parties to rival these world class hostesses.
