‘Tis the season of celebrations…graduations, birthdays, communions, family time, etc. Whatever it is that brings you all together, you’ll be the hostess with the mostest with this go-to special occasion recipe. The goddess that is the Barefoot Contessa will never steer you wrong. Ever.

So who better to have by your (virtual) side than she when preparing for a special occasion? Hosting is a breeze with her divine ORANGE BAKED HAM recipe. Serve with a warmed baguette, and a simple butter lettuce salad with apples, craisins, and crumbled blue cheese, dressed with Newman’s Own Balsamic Vinaigrette.

PS. For the perfect party starter, channel your inner Mary Giuliani and serve those beloved “Tiny Hot Dogs”.

Now go celebrate!
