Your Turn To Host? Need An Appetizer?

When I attend work events, social events, or even Kraft Services on set the snack/appetizers are unfulfilling as far as my needs, wants and goals. They are usually full of grains and unnatural ingredients. You can avoid taking these steps in the wrong direction. Remember if you can’t pronounce the ingredients you surely don’t want to eat it. If you need to take a dish to pass or if you’re hosting a cocktail party these healthy, yet delicious little veggie cakes will be a hit. You’ll be asked for the recipe and given compliments as well. Trust me when I say, “You won’t be taking leftovers home.”
