In order to throw a successful college dinner party, there are a few ways to make eating with friends more enjoyable.

The second basic step is to start cooking early before the guests arrive. This will allow you to focus better on the task at hand and allows you to make multiple things at a time. These two steps seem obvious, but you will not look as amateur if you are prepared.
