Talking party food, friends! Specifically, appetizer boards (aka no ovens needed)! I’ve decided that designing appetizer boards is equivalent to creating little works of art! They’re so much fun to pull together with your favorite cheeses, crackers, fruits, veggies, etc. There really aren’t any rules (ok, not many) when it comes to appetizer boards which is good because I hate rules. Simply, these food displays are
Pausing the fall fun to bring you details on our amazing beach trip… Living in a landlocked state (for the first time in my life) has made visiting the beach a bit more difficult. While I was a beach baby to the max, my daughter hadn’t had an opportunity to see the beach….until…we headed down to the gulf coast to Sandestin Golf & Beach Resort
Hooray, another delicious recipe to share with y’all! You know I love my appetizers, right? Even if you don’t have a party coming up, just enjoy a plate of these Shrimp & Tomato Pastry Tartlets for dinner, they’re delish! Naming this tasty appetizer was tricky, so many amazing things all in one bite! Shrimp, herbed cream cheese, tomato, AND puff pastry. What’s a hostess to do?
Watch out! I’m back with another “mini” version of another favorite party food…TACOS!! Who doesn’t love tacos, truly!? It’s the ultimate crowd-pleasing fave! However, friends, you know me! Food for parties is best served “mix and mingle” style so I am sharing my easy little trick for making teeny tiny tacos! You can serve them “soft taco” style or “hard taco” style, it’s up to
Every hostess needs a fabulous baked dip in their recipe repertoire! I grew up along the coast when I was young so I absolutely love seafood! My husband is the spicy lover in the house (though I’m getting used to a little heat now!) so I knew I wanted to create an absolutely delicious hot ‘n spicy shrimp dip! This reminds me of the baked dips
Have you ever left a party to find yourself still starving because the party food wasn’t exactly hearty or filling? So I fully believe that you can still have serve easy mix-and-mingle ready foods without limiting yourself to veggie sticks, friends! Pick your favorite burger or sandwich and “mini-fy” it! That’s right, make it party ready. I’ve done it with mini burgers and pimento BLTs, and it’s
Do you have your New Year’s menu ready? Whether you’re hosting dozens for a huge party or just enjoying appetizers with the family, this recipe for sweet ‘n spicy meatballs is the perfect New Year’s Eve party appetizer! I’m always surprised how fast meatballs disappear at my parties, and I think it’s because they provide a heartier bite than other hors d’oeuvres. Might I suggest
Christmas is in 2 days! I have toddler toys to build but first, I just had to share one of my favorite holiday appetizers! Cherry almond brie bites are easy to make (especially if you use phyllo cups) and always a crowd pleasing appetizer. You can customize them with your favorite jams or follow my recipe for cherry almond (my favorite). Cherry and almond have
While I’m usually at no loss for a fabulous holiday dessert, appetizers can be a bit trickier. I always like to serve something a bit heartier than a veggie tray which is why I love these coconut shrimp lettuce wraps! They’re topped with diced peppers for a festive touch of red and green! Plus, they’re “mini” for easy pick-up and eating. You’ll find me quick little
Growing up on the coast, seafood has always been one of my favorite types of food! I always like to have a handful of really great seafood appetizers on hand for parties throughout the year. A lot of people tend to only make seafood dishes in the summer when they’re at the beach or thinking about all things coastal, but you can and should enjoy
Move over sliders, there’s a new- even-tinier – burger in town! It’s really shocking that I haven’t already turned this favorite food into the perfect party bite but alas, here we have the ultimate mini cheeseburgers. My favorite part about these little cheeseburgers are the itty bitty burger buns. They’re so easy to make and you can control just how small you make them. I should host
My Mom has been making mini biscuits for parties for years! They are her “signature” item at baby showers, holiday parties…you name it. So when she says “OH MY WORD. I’M CHANGING MY RECIPE TO THIS ONE FROM NOW ON!”…you know it’s good. That’s exactly what she said when she tried these mini cheddar biscuits. Hands down, the cutest and tastiest bite sized biscuit around. Let’s talk about this recipe!
