Whether you're a cordon bleu or someone who thinks cooking is a spectator sport, chances are that sooner or later you're going to have to show up with a dish to put on the table and please the crowd. Here's what your stars suggest you dish up ...
The warrior of the zodiac feels a special surge of pride bringing the meat to the table. You'll do turkey just right -- crispy on the outside and tender on the inside. Aries vegetarians still bring a main course, impressive to even the avid carnivores of your family.
Serve up the potatoes. Your Earth-sign nature suggests that you'll make them special, perhaps with garlic and chives, or mashed new potatoes with the skin still on for a pretty pop of red.
You're the kind of trendsetter that could take a dish that's as essential as sweet potatoes and turn it into a memorable moment. Consider glazing them and serving with curried onions, or go all the way, making them as creamy and sweet as a pie!
You understand comfort food like no other. That's why you have a way of bringing dressing, gravy and rolls to their highest potential. The recipe doesn't have to be complicated, so much as buttery!
You're a master of presentation. You can make simple crackers and cheese look spectacular the way you line it up on he plate. Choose an hors d'oeuvres -- like pate or hummus -- that you can build a pretty presentation around.
You are a fantastic coordinator and will bring together whatever everyone else brought beautifully. But if you're not the one in charge this year, you'll enjoy putting your spin on the healthiest dish on the table -- the salad.
Maybe it's because you're the sign of the scales and you have a natural knack for balancing the flavors and ingredients -- but you can really cook. So take on a challenging dish -- the perfect cranberry relish, a layered dip, or an impressive home made candy.
Your sign is skilled with the knife. Your fancy garnishes and the interesting ways you cut fruit and veggies will take your platters to the next level. Bring a tray of crudite!
Your hot appetizer will be a hit -- it goes with your fiery nature. Whether it's "hot" because of its temperature or its spices doesn't matter -- you have a talent for both. Try a buffalo Chex mix, a hot cheese and artichoke dip or a plate of jalapeno poppers.
You rock the baked goods, especially the ones that are more rich than sweet. You can't go wrong by bringing a cheese cake or classic pumpkin pie. Instead of whipped cream, bring the more sophisticated version -- creme fraiche!
The drinks often get overlooked, but not by you. You recognize how the right beverage can grease the social wheels and you add something unexpected to the table by choosing a novel variety of beverages to suit the menu.
Oyster stew is a tradition for some families and it's trendy to substitute other seafood stews like muscle soup too. As the sign of the sea, you could go so far as to supplement the table with shrimp cocktail or a sushi platter!
