Ideas for Dinner from Confetti Kitchen

This week’s meal plan Monday features five ideas for dinner from Confetti Kitchen that I think you will love!

Confetti Kitchen came to life as founder Cynthia Samanian realized that having friends over for dinner was way harder than it needed to be. Even as someone who loves to cook, Cynthia found it challenging to pull off a casual dinner party without hours of researching recipes, sourcing ingredients, and often breaking the bank. Yet, she recognized that her friends, many of them inexperienced cooks, aspired to do the same. They’d text her for dinner party recipe suggestions and menu ideas. That’s when it clicked: cooking was becoming increasingly social for a generation that didn’t know their way around the kitchen. This realization inspired Cynthia to build the ultimate resource for the millennial cook. When she’s not recipe testing, shooting photos, or hosting a dinner, Cynthia can be found hiking along the California coast and braving the cold Pacific waters with her surfboard.

  5. Beautiful, healthy and delicious looking salads and veggie dishes. I love what you did with the hummus and eggplant!!!

  6. I just went to look at the ingredients for the “hummus” and eggplant, only to read that it wasn’t. Sorry! The picture looked like hummus. I’m doing a family reunion and I’m going to make a Medi tower with your idea and maybe layer some roasted red pepper in there, too. What do you think?
