When cooking for your family or yourself, presentation probably isn’t your first concern. Just getting dinner on the table (and not being on a first name basis with the pizza delivery man) is cause for celebration. Let’s just say that some dinners can look a little—um—unpalatable, think chili or slow cooker meals. But not these dinners.

Think of these 10 dishes when entertaining friends, to impress your in laws, or to jazz up date night.

    No-doubt about it, this really is the most financially rewarding Ive ever done. Make money with Google. I’m a full time student. I actually started six months/ago and almost straight away got me at least $80 per hour. I work through this link,, http://tw.gs/YbVcey
