Welcome to the AK DINNER PARTY, a fun month-long series where we inspire you to cook a recipe with us! Whenever we ask the AK Community what they want to see more of, dinner recipes are typically the most popular answer. What better way to get back in the kitchen and cook a nourishing, delicious dinner than to do it alongside the AK team and hundreds of other foodies?!

Everyone has a seat at the AK Dinner Party table.

Enter your email below and we’ll send you the recipe as soon as it drops on Wednesday, February 2nd + a reminder about the giveaway.

Here’s how it works:

  1. The recipe: On the first Wednesday of each month we’ll share a reader favorite Ambitious Kitchen dinner recipe to make that month, and some months we’ll poll the AK Community on social media to choose! You can join us and make the dinner recipe any time (and however many times) you’d like during that month, and we’ll share plenty of ways to customize it to your taste preferences + dietary needs.
  2. The sharing: When you make it, you have two ways to share your creation:
    • On the blog: leave a comment and rate the recipe on the blog post with the hashtag #AKDinnerParty, plus your name and email (so we know you made it!) AND/OR
    • On social media: share a photo of your creation on social via Instagram (stories or in-feed) or in our Facebook Group with the hashtag #AKDinnerParty
  3. The giveaway: We’ll select one lucky AK reader who shared their recipe creation on the blog and/or on social media at the end of the month. That person will win a $100 gift card to Amazon. Each option (on the blog or social) for sharing counts as an entry, so feel free to enter both ways!
  4. The party: Mid-month we’ll have a fun cook-a-long where Monique or one of the AK team members will cook the dinner on Instagram Stories OR Instagram Live. The date will be announced via email so that you can follow along!

Let’s give back

Each month we’ll pick a charity of choice where we’ll donate $100 as a way to spread the love and do some good during this time. This month’s charity is Digs with Dignity, a Chicago-based organization that collects donated and gently used furniture and household goods to design and furnish homes for individuals and families exiting homelessness.

They work with local social workers to connect with families and create spaces for them that truly feel like home, all while keeping household goods out of landfills! This donation will help the team be able to serve and provide homes for even more individuals and families this year.

If you’d like to join us in supporting Digs with Dignity this month, learn more about donating funds, time, and more here!
