New Yorker Moments: A NYC Spring Dinner Party

L1020004My friend recently got engaged, so what better excuse to have a spring dinner party, right?  While I’m still a novice at this whole cooking thing, I went out on a limb and tried some new dishes–baked ricotta with lemon, garlic and chives, creamy watercress soup, and strawberry goat cheese squares for dessert.
