Based on a Martha Stewart Recipe, but I altered it (because I think this tastes better! haha)
Bite size fresh strawberries filled with a sweet cream cheese mixture. I took these to a party and they were gone in minutes with tons of complements! :)
OMG.. These are like heaven in your mouth! Talk about great taste sensations... I made these for one of my cooking and recipe events that I hold monthly, and these were a HUGE hit... A must try for sure! You can use low fat cream cheese to make these lighter if you like. You can also dip the ends with any kind of finely chopped nuts, mini chocolate chips, graham cracker crumbs, sprinkles, or dip the ends in chocolate or drizzle with chocolate. You might even try adding some cocoa powder to the cream cheese and make it a chocolate filling. The sky is the limit here, just use your imagination!
The cutest, delicate mice you ever saw! Everyone remarks about them. I give trays of assorted cookies each year and place them on top. They just make it! It actually is a help when the kids can put on the almonds. I don't remember where I got the recipe, so I gave the best measurements I can recall. It sounds like it could be a Hershey's recipe!? For adults you can strain the cherries, then add rum or almond liquor and soak overnight drain and dry proceed with recipe. Save the rum for drinks.
This is a 2ND PLACE WINNER. I won second place in a chili cook-off as well as a 2 foot trophy for my chili recipe. I hope you enjoy :)
For a special treat top with grated cheese, onion and a dollop of sour cream.
My Nana makes great a Spanakopita, but refuses to show me how to make it because I don't visit enough. It has taken me years of practice but now my father thinks mine is better than his mother's--don't tell Nana.
This is my kind of Super ball food! If you don't like endive spread it in crackers or use as a dip for vegies. Use as a condiment for a sandwich or serve with grilled chicken.I`ve also added 1/4 cup diced red onions to the mixture.
This is a great recipe for marinated feta. Try to chop the red bell pepper and the olives as small as possible. Together with the green herbs the feta looks really colourful and tastes delicious. The recipe is adapted from a Swiss cooking magazine called 'Le Menu' (September 05). I changed the oil as I prefer olive oil to rapeseed oil. But feel free to use rapeseed oil if desired. The stated amount serves six as an appetizer. Marinating time of 24 hours is included in the cooking time.
A very impressive cold appetizer. The color of the oranges and spinach really brighten up a buffet table. My guests loved this appetizer and devoured them all. Adapted slightly from a Creme de Colorado cookbook.
I made these for dinner guests and everyone enjoyed them. Cooking them in batches takes a little long but if you have a few oven trays it would be faster. These could could serve these unusual crackers after dinner (supper) with cheese, dried fruit, nuts and wine. I served the with cheese and grapes. The recipe comes from a book called 100 favourite cakes and biscuits by Alison Holst
This is a party favorite. A very nice recipe that you can keep in a crock pot for those holiday festivities or anytime that you want to have finger foods. While the water chestnuts are unexpected, they are a hit surprise!
You're guests will go bonkers over these! Basil and Parmesan, always a winning combination! You can make these up to a month in advance and freeze them, then take them directly to the oven from the freezer.
