If bringing to a party, make ahead, but save the baking for when you get to the party home!

If serving in your own home, we’ve had these hot out of the oven, and also at a cooled temp. Both are delicious!

Shoes or no shoes rule?

So here’s a question for my reluctant entertainers. :)

First of all, we do not have a no-shoe rule in our home. So we’re easy, come on in … take your shoes off if you want, but don’t feel like you have to. We’ve always been that way.

The last thing I want to do is make my guests take their shoes off when they didn’t come prepared (with their own slippers or socks).

Or even if I did have a basket of socks by the door, maybe they really do not want to take their shoes off.

Here’s a “sock” tip:

I always appreciate when a host gives a head’s up in advance, so that people can come prepared. If I know, I’ll throw in a pair of socks. 

Or, what if you’re grossed out by bare feet in your house? Another reason to not enforce the rule, but let people be free to do what they want!

Let me know your thoughts, dear readers! :)

  1. Hi Sandy,

    I think this sock thing is good to bring up not a huge deal but it’s a part of hospitality. Good idea as a host to give your guests a heads up on this. Since we live in NH you pretty much always have to take your shoes off mud, rain or snow is almost always going on here but it’s almost a given when you walk in to slip your shoes off. Some folks bring their own slippers or house shoes with them which is great. I know in some cultures such as Hawaiian it’s a custom to take your shoes off as soon as you come in.
