If ever there was a perfect time to remedy your inability to throw a kickass dinner party, it's now. From holiday parties to visiting in-laws, it's not a bad idea to have at least a few meals you can serve without a microwave.

The lineup is baked onion and mushroom soup, salad with herbed vinaigrette in a Parmesan bowl, crown roast of pork with fruited stuffing, layered vegetable torte with red pepper coulis and frozen chocolate terrine with caramel sauce.
