Q My niece is having her first baby this summer and I'm hosting her baby shower this spring for about 30 ladies. Understandably, she's very conscious of what she eats. Ideas?

- Melody


It's very kind of you to consider your honored guest's preferences when planning your menu! The focus is on the mother-to-be, so let the food be uncomplicated.

Try Black-Eyed Pea & Pasta Salad, a light pasta salad with a flavorful sweet and spicy lime jalapeno dressing. Complement that with Savory Breadsticks embellished with herbs, followed by Turtle Thumbprints (chewy caramel chocolate cookies) and ice cream. Perfect!
