2 Cents On Appetizers Guests Love (Via Fab Friends)


Time for the next segment in my 2 cents series where I let blog friends share their heartfelt opinions on topics I find interesting. Today I have invited a few wonderful friends to share their favorite appetizer recipes! It is a real mixed group, just the way I like it! Two terrific food blogs (I have eaten a lot of their foods and I love their cooking styles. Uncomplicated and really good comfort food!) mixed with three super stylish design & lifestyle blogs.

But they all have something in common, the people behind the blogs. Good hearted, fun friends (I hang out with several of them) who are creative, have great style and who just like me, like food and people! I am over the moon delighted that they all wanted to share their:


And pay attention! Not only did they contribute the recipes, most of them also created their own master pieces and took their own pictures! Enjoy!


Inspired by the classic salmon, caviar and cream combo, this appetizer is as easy to make as it is on the eye and is guaranteed to be a crowd-pleaser!  Serve as amuse or appetizer. Enjoy!

This is absolutely the easiest and most delicious appetizer I know of. I keep the ingredients on hand at all times for unexpected guests. It is always gone by the time a party ends and the recipe is asked for every time. I am not even sure if you can consider it a true recipe with how simple it is though!

When it comes to appetizers, especially at parties, I usually make a beeline straight for anything “mini.” I love the idea of nibbling on delicate looking, tasty bites that are packed with fresh and savory ingredients. So of course when I think about what to take to a party or serve at my own gatherings, I’m all about “mini” and “tasty” and these little quiche hors d’oeuvres definitely hit the mark. They are easy to make and can be prepared ahead of time which adds to their winning combination. The only drawback is that you may be tempted to dip in before the guests arrive!

These are delicious and so simple and easy to make that they are a hit at any party! They are great appetizers since they are finger food. You can make these ahead of time and warm them up when guests arrive.  The caramelized onions and the soft melted feta cheese makes each bite heavenly!

Be ready for bursts of flavor! I love that this dish is simple, fresh and healthy, and that this time of the year everything is in season. I really enjoy cooking with the seasons.

There you have it – some new, great appetizers! Fun to to see what these friends came up with, don’t you think? And don’t you love the photos they took? Make sure to visit their blogs for more loveliness!

I will continue to make my way around blog land and tap into the smarts of my friends. They are all sitting on a wealth of information and I can’t wait to share with you!

Hugs to everyone!
