It depends on two things. If I'm bringing it to a party, no trial run. Worst case scenario is I dump my dish and swing by the grocery store on my way. If I'm hosting, how difficult is the recipe and if it's a disaster, will my party suffer without it?

No, but I do make iffy things far enough in advance to switch to the old standard if it fails.

I guess I'm adventurous and so are my friends - never really had a disaster we couldn't fix if we put our heads together!

No, but if something doesn't turn out, I won't bring it.

My poor guests are usually the guinea pigs! Thankfully, it usually goes well. The worst experience I've had is with the timing. I once served a dinner 2 hours late!!

I've learned the hard way to ALWAYS test out a recipe beforehand.
