Girls, I'm looking for ideas for some yummy appetizer-type things to serve at my jewelry party on Saturday. Any suggestions??

I'm definitely serving my brother-in-law's delicious taco dip, a fresh veggie tray, shrimp cocktail, and strawberry pretzel salad. I think I need one or two more things though. Bam is catering...haha! ;)

I am a BIG fan of two particular Giada recipes: Pita chips with mascarpone chive dip and stuffed mini bell peppers! If you want the recipe for either, let me know! :)

Here you go! :) I think they are good with and without the peas. :)

Buy dates [medjool ones if you can find them]. Stuff an almond in them. Wrap them in bacon. Cook on the stovetop until the bacon is just about crispy. SO good.

Place an almond and a bite size piece of brie or camembert on a dried apricot. Drizzle a little bit of honey on top. SO good.

Both sound delicious! Have you served them before, or have they been served TO you?

I've made them both before - we had a wine, cheese and chocolate party for our first anniversary and I made up all of the finger foods. :)

lol, i was going to suggest the bacon wrapped dates. (my mother in law calls them "roaches" and usually makes them for halloween parties.)

My suggestion is much less fancy than the two before me, but I'll try anyway!

I LOVE a nice assortment of cheeses (my favorites are a smokey-tasting gouda, and brie), cheese spreads (there is this lobster/crab cheese spread that my friend serves that is DIVINE), accompanied by crackers and things like honey (regular and flavored with things like lavender - lavender honey drizzled over brie is heavenly!). And then maybe an assortment of meats, too, like salami and prosciutto (sp?). Yum!

I have a friend who serves figs with his cheeses, too. That's always a nice combination, too!

I LOVE a nice cheese plate as well. You just made me want some good cheese! Is your friend's lobster/crab/cheese spread something she makes, or buys? It sounds heavenly!

She buys it - and I think just at Shoprite (though we have an International Shoprite, whatever that means!)! It comes in one of those round, flat-ish plastic containers (similar to containers for Tribe-brand hummus, if you've ever seen that).

Ooh, fruit skewers are a great idea! Kind of like a classy take on the classic fruit salad!

Lol...look at my husband's menu and I'll send you the recipes of whatever you want.

But I vote spinach artichoke dip because it's awesome.

Also, I usually end up doing a cheese platter with some candied walnuts, dried figs, kalamata olives, and a few different pestos/tapenades plus crackers.

Also, if you want to mix up the fruit skewers thing a bit, try watermelon + goat cheese + balsamic reduction. awesome.

Fruit salad/fruit skewers for sure. Then my lol suggestion is mini cocktail hotdogs/saussage wrapped in pastry/crescent roll dough. Other suggestions: cheese plate with assorted crackers/bread, dips (hummus/spinach artichoke/cheese/etc. Type dip) with chips/crackers/bread, mini bruchettas. Maybe also have a bowl of small chocolates out, like kisses? Or a small selection of cookies like pepridge farm if you're serving tea or coffee?

I made these artichoke turnovers, from Martha Stewart, and they were the yum:

Even easier - buy puff pastry, defrost, cut into squares, and fill with pesto and goat cheese. Seal up the little pouches and bake until golden brown. SO GOOD. We sometimes have them for dinner :)
When we go to parties, everyone always wants these sliders that I make. They are not the prettiest things in the world, and they're not fancy, but they are really easy, crowd pleasing, and soooo good!!

I have an amazing crab dip recipe. I'll try to remember to type it up when I get home. I still owe Jan AND Steph recipes too. I just forget when I get home....but now I have a planner so I will write it down right now!

pimples are really annoying, you can kill them using benzoyl peroxide but it will also make your skin red.
