Not only did PopSugar's Lindsay Miller speak with Wolfgang Puck about the menu at the Governors Ball, but she also talked to one of our favorite entertaining experts Katie Lee. Lee's partnered with the Academy and Moet and Chandon to create the official cocktail of the Oscars. It's a refreshing sounding punch that's super simple to prepare. Learn all about it when you check out the video now!
We can thank Katie Lee for bringing some bright color to tonight's red carpet. Her rich yellow gown is made further fabulous via the beaded neckline. Diamond drop earrings and a small clutch are her accessories of choice. Do you love it or hate it?

Although they are traditionally associated with Hanukkah, latkes or potato pancakes, make a delicious appetizer even after the holiday. The thin, crispy shredded potatoes can act as a scrumptious base for everything from sour cream and smoked salmon to spicy apple chutney — as is the case with this recipe. When making latkes, it's important to squeeze the excess water out of the potatoes. It's a tedious job that normally ruins a kitchen towel, but it's essential to creating a cake that has a crunchy texture. These savory bites would be welcome on a spread of appetizers on New Year's Eve, so get the method now.

I'm a huge fan of dips: I serve them at all my parties and am constantly searching for the best dip recipes. Although I've made classic onion dip a couple of times, I've been disappointed with the variations I've tried. None of them tasted better than the onion dip from a seasoning packet. I was just about to give up on homemade onion dip, until one day, while browsing Katie Lee's book, The Comfort Table, I stumbled upon her recipe. It seemed simple enough and since it would pair well with brie-stuffed burgers, I decided to make it. Good thing, because — finally — I've found a wonderful onion dip! It's thick and creamy with a rich caramelized onion flavor. Lee recommends serving it with homemade potato chips, but I paired it with thick-cut Kettle Chips and it was absolutely delicious. Warning: it's an addictive dip; you might just eat it all! Here's her recipe.
The Kentucky Derby, the most talked about horse race of the year, is this Saturday. I like to use it as an excuse to gather friends for a little party. The race starts at 6 p.m. on the East coast and 3 p.m. on the West coast. The ideal time to throw a party is before the race; have guests come at 4 p.m. (East coast) or 1 p.m. (West coast) and serve a spread of upscale Southern-inspired appetizers. Blackened shrimp with roasted garlic aioli will have your guests licking their fingers and hungry for more. Deviled eggs go glam with the addition of tangy goat cheese and chunky chutney.
Crunchy fried green tomatoes add an element of necessary fried goodness to the menu. Mini grilled cheese and ham sandwiches are a crowd-pleasing classic. If you're hosting a Kentucky Derby shindig, I highly recommend you check out these recipes after the break.

Katie Lee looked majorly cute at a book party soiree for Derek Blasberg's Classy at Barneys in NYC. She took a cue from the floral minis trend and donned a watercolor version from J.Crew with a white double-breasted blazer. A white tank keeps her palette simple, while lace booties add textural pizazz. We love it all.
