Allrecipes’ 2016 Entertaining Survey reveals many of us are now entertaining at home year-round, not only during the winter holidays. Occasions for home entertaining have expanded, generational differences for entertaining occasions and styles are visible, and, not surprisingly, social media and digital resources play a role in everyone’s entertaining activities.  Click here to read the Allrecipes December 2016 Measuring Cup Report outlining nine insights about current entertaining behaviors and attitudes.
