well, for starters...

Happy Tuesday, lovelies!

Today, I'm linking up with Meg over at Life of Meg for the Mingle Monday prompt. (Yes, I know it's Tuesday but the link-up is open all week...)

The prompt for this week is YOUR GO-TO APPETIZER RECIPE(S).

Whenever I'm invited to a dinner party/gathering and I'm slotted to bring an appetizer there are a few stand-bys that I go to. Honestly, I think appetizers and hors d'oeuvres are pretty much the same thing, right?

Coincidentally, I've blogged about some of my fave recipes in this category before. Here is the highlight reel...

1. Chocolate Chip Cheesecake Dip. Perhaps this is a dessert appetizer, but as my mantra says, I'd always prefer to eat dessert first at every meal. Here's the blog post I did about it.

2. Ham & Cheese Sliders with Poppyseeds. Mmmmm. Seriously. :) Warm and perfectly portioned as an appetizer.

3. Pretzel Hugs. These are easy to make and a definite crowd-pleaser. They are perfect with adults and kids alike!

4. Apple Dip. This is another sweet appetizer that I love to bring. It's sorta healthy because you eat it with apples. Well, at least that's how I rationalize eating it. ;)


Linking up with Meg.

  1. Those sliders look great! My go to appetizers are Mushroom Logs (awful name, yummy food).
    I also love the no cooking required Cream Cheese with Mango Chutney. Just plop the cream cheese on a plate, pour the chutney on top and serve with crackers. For added flavor pour bacon bits and/or chives on top of the chutney. Yummy!


Comments make me SO happy! Go ahead...make my day. ;)
