“I love spending hours searching for recipes, struggling to write a menu, and figuring out all the other details for my event!” said No One, Ever
Get ready to say goodbye to stressed-out hosting, and hello to pulling off an awesome (and delicious) gathering – without all the hassle.
If you’re anything like me, you’re already busy with a million things on your plate – and you may scream if you have to figure out details for one more thing!
I LOVE a good gathering. People hanging out at my house is my jam. In 2015, I was working full time with a newborn baby at home and – you guessed it – the ability to build a creative menu, find all the recipes, plan a list, shop, timeline, AND cook just FLEW out the window. Sound familiar to anyone else?
Ever find yourself resorting to sad frozen appetizers or sub-par premade grocery store dips?
Sister, life’s too short to celebrate over crappy food. Amen? So I put together a complete blueprint for your next awesome get together – I’m talking everything you need to dish up a memorable meal.
It’s time to stop juggling ALL the things, from kids and work to trying to find five seconds for yourself in all the busyness. Imagine being able to host a gathering without hours of planning. You’d have all that time to do literally ANYTHING else (or maybe just Netlfix + chill). I’ve done all the work so you get to do the fun part: cook, eat, and hang out with the people you love.
You can almost taste it: the whole plan – the tools, recipes, and resources – ready to go with ZERO effort from you. Because you deserve that #imsomartha effect… without the migraine.

Talk Data to Me
Recent surveys found that:
- Americans planning to host in their home rose by 25% over pre-pandemic levels.
- Post-pandemic, 46% of people are very excited to host in their home for milestones and casual events alike.
- 71% of participants described party planning as a “stressful event.”

What real home cooks are saying about the gathering guides
Fabulous presentation and content! When do we eat? I can’t wait to cook and serve this meal in my house.
Questions? I have answers!
You'll receive an email with a link to download the PDF file, it's yours to keep!
Nope! All of the content provided is exclusive to that particular Guide, meaning you won't find it anywhere else on my Blog or website.
If you're having trouble with the directions or timeline, you can shoot me an email at chrissie @ chrissieknudsen dot com.
All of the recipes in each guide configured for eight servings but can be easily scaled up or down.
I'm not able to customize a Gathering Guide for your particular dietary needs. However, when possible, I do include suggested options in the recipes such as adding protein to a vegetarian recipe, a lower-carb alternative, etc.
I really hope you'll love the food and the resources, but if you cooked all the recipes and felt that the instructions and details were not sufficient, please contact me to discuss.
