Welcome to The New Hostess! My name is Lucy.

 I love to document my adventures in food, entertaining, home design, and travel. 

I created this site with the hopes of inspiring everyday tastemakers by posting easy recipes and entertaining ideas. I hope you enjoy!

Cook Simple. Share Often. 

A Munchery Miracle

A Munchery Miracle

So the holidays came out of NO WHERE yet again (and WHAT is with the tropical weather?? Let me wear my turtlenecks in peace!!!). It's one of my favorite times of the year, but finding the the time to sleep, yet alone cook, is difficult. Which is why my friends at Munchery are the BEST - Peyton hosted our crew for the annual Secret Santa exchange last week, and we enjoyed a delicious, chef prepared dinner delivered to her place by way of my office. Easiest entertaining ever. Happy week before Christmas!  :)

Also - side note - I did manage to catch my hair ON FIRE (I'm talking FLAMES) holding a candle trying to take pictures, but I escaped unscathed. Another #MuncheryMiracle.

Of couuuurse a spread from Murray's  to kick things off
