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. 

Bakeless Cookie Dough Pretzel Bites

Yesterday, (a snowy magical Sunday in the West VIllage; winter I love you so much!!) Michele and I baked our favorite treat, Cookie Dough Pretzel Bites from Sally's Baking Addiction. My favorite part of cooking is the social component - food brings us together: it is at the table and in the kitchen that culinary customs and traditions are shared and enjoyed. So without further ado, I'm introducing a series: The New Hostess Wants to Know - think Family Feud lightening round. It seems so appropriate that Meesh (foodie and amazing, loyal proponent of this site) is the first up. :)
