Ask Ina

I'm newly engaged and I'm dying to have my mother in law over for dinner. What's a great menu to impress an experienced cook that won't have me stuck in the kitchen when guests arrive?

I would make Slow-Roasted Filet of Beef with Basil Parmesan Mayonnaise, Roasted Broccolini, and Couscous with Pine Nuts. If you only have one oven, you can roast the broccolini while the filet of beef rests. I'm sure your mother in law will be impressed!!
