The Holiday Domestic Goddess

Playing hostess this holiday season? If you want to step up to the serving plate and make your party a wild success—without letting the noshing get out of control—borrow a few of our party tricks:
  • Stock up on small plates—they make portions look bigger.
  • Offer shrimp cocktail, cider and candy canes in addition to the less healthy party foods.
  • Set out nibbles that stand on their own, like Bissinger's Chocolate-Dipped Oranges and Starbucks Dark Chocolate Espresso Truffles.
  • Dole out desserts in a shot glass, says Shape magazine—they downsize portions by 80 percent.
  • Buy raw almonds and roast them in festive flavors, suggests fitness expert Jennifer Galardi.
