Stars' Signature Party Dishes
"I'm really great at cracking open coconuts with a machete! I give [my guests] a little sip of the coconut water then add a little rum. It's very refreshing and it's a good party trick."
"I'm a big fan of some homemade guacamole. Lime and cilantro are the key ingredients. And you can't make guacamole without a mortar and pestle!"
"The mint julep is my southern summer drink and we make burgers and hot dogs on the grill. We're sort of old school that way."
"I make a lemon tart. My friends always beg for it during the summer. It's a Barefoot Contessa recipe-I swear by her cookbooks!"
"I make very good vegan macaroni and cheese, but I use real milk and cheese so I guess it's not really vegan."
"I love paella. The presentation is beautiful and you get to share it. I serve it with mojitos."
"Homemade mint-chocolate ice cream with mint from my garden. It makes me scream with pleasure!"
"I do a whole grill party where I get everybody outside and put everything on the grill. I cook lamb chops on the grill with my special chimichurri sauce."
