Sometimes I think I want to have people over to my house to watch television shows or do other things.  If you’re like me, you probably worry about what sort of special dish you can prepare to help your guests feel like they are your guests and are welcome in your home.

It turns out there are a lot of things you can do to make people feel like you want them inside your home.  I wanted to share with you one of my favorites.  I don’t think it’s too hard because even I was able to figure it out (after a little trial and error, of course).

Figure eight donut platters are a fun and festive way to tell your guests that they are guests in your home and you went out of your way to prepare something special for them to enjoy.
