With your busy schedule, it’s challenging--but important--to make time for family and friends...especially over the holidays.

Keep your parties fabulous (and your stress levels low) with these entertaining tips from Food Network personality and Share Our Strength ambassador Sandra Lee.

Lee advises that you prepare smartly by shopping ahead of time. Think through your food storage strategy: For instance, just by using LG’s Mega-Capacity French-Door Refrigerator, you guarantee yourself the largest French-door model on the market. Thirty-three cubic feet of space means there’s enough room to stock every family favorite...whether you have a hungry few or you’re cooking for a crowd.

Keep your affairs simple and casual. Serve food buffet-style and allow guests to help themselves as needed. Have some easy snacks on hand for guests who arrive early.

As for food, stick with comforting favorites that appeal to all age-groups, like stuffed mushrooms, chicken potpies or Lee’s famous BLT sliders.

Finally, be sure you’re thinking about more than just your own family; a donation to Share Our Strength--helping to eradicate childhood hunger--can go a long way.

Good food, good cause, good fridge. Sounds like a good time to us.
