Appetizers

Appetizers are delicious at restaurants, but even better if they are home made. The true definition of an appetizer is “a small dish of food or a drink taken before a meal or the main course of a meal to stimulate one’s appetite.” They might play a small part in your meal, but you still want them to have big flavor!

Typically, my appetizers consist of dips, finger foods, spreads, wings and everything in between. Appetizers are the perfect addition to any Holiday, New Year’s, Birthday or Super Bowl party. I don’t know about you but when it comes to family parties, mine loves appetizers! Almost more than the meal itself! Having guest bring one is a great way to have everyone participate.

When coming up with a new appetizer recipe, I focus on creating something that is quick and easy to make but still tastes delicious. You want to offer your guests yummy ‘before dinner’ dishes that look fab, but are also easy to throw together.

So what do you say? Start your ‘get together’ by browsing through some of my appetizers!
