I’ve had this recipe bookmarked for quite a while, and I finally decided to go ahead and try it for our Thanksgiving gathering this year. It is incredibly easy to make, looks beautiful on the table, and is absolutely delicious! I got the recipe from Delish, and made no changes other than to double the size of the brie wheel and thus the amount of biscuits.
Feta and Roasted Red Pepper Dip
My friend Talia and I went to the winery next to the barn, and of course had to try anything cheese related…which included a feta and red pepper dip. It was so good that I had to try to reproduce it! It took a few false starts, but it came out well. We served this for our Kentucky Derby party.
This is one of my favorite homemade hummus recipes – great every time. I have used both dry and canned chickpeas and it’s been good either way. I also add a sprinkling of sumac when it is done. Great with veggies and pita chips.
A typical six (or seven, if you add meat) layer dip. The only thing I really did differently was to heat up and season the refried beans so they were a little less…canned. 🙂 And I made the guacamole from scratch. One of my favorites! We had this at our New Years Eve party.
I remember our friend John making chex mix for parties in the past, so when I ran across this Pioneer Woman recipe, I wanted to give it a go. It was very good, although I think better the next day.
Spinach and Artichoke Dip
Despite the fact that this is one of my favorite appetizers, I’ve never actually made it myself. I found this Pioneer Woman recipe, and thought it would be perfect for our casual New Years Eve party – all appetizer-tastic. It was excellent!
Loaded Baked Potato Dip
My favorite thing to bring to parties is always the appetizer (probably because it’s my favorite thing to eat ;)). This was a dip I hadn’t tried before that I made for our annual potluck. It was really good, the only thing I’d say is that you would need to use thick chips to scoop up this dip! Recipe from The Kitchn.
So this isn’t really a recipe, but it was a pretty cute dinner project that was a hit with the kids. You could use homemade pizza crust and sauce, and if it hadn’t been a weeknight dinner, I probably would have (and you could get really original with it that way, too). But it was still pretty good with store bought both. You will need a springform pan for this. This might also be a fun appetizer at a small party.
These things were like crack, seriously. Delicious, and although (very, very) time consuming, they were easy. They went like crazy at our Halloween party, and I will definitely be making them again for future parties. This recipe came from Food & Wine.
Roasted Red Pepper Dip
This is a simple, healthy dip that is great for a party or just a snack. I used jarred peppers for this, but freshly roasted peppers would be extra awesome. We served this with pita chips. This is from Cooking Light.
