Thanks for your comment. Don't forget to share!

These all look so good! I'm getting hungry just reading about them. I will definitely be trying these the next time I have company over.

This is quite possibly the best page for party snack ideas. I really like that there are a lot of meaty options and even some zucchini parmesan chips, too. Fantastic!

There is nothing like the feeling of running through jalapenos in the food processor. This recipe looks like it would be worth the pain of it. I usually have a day with a big meal and the next are appetizers. This even looks festive. Adding this to my list for Christmas Day.

These snacks are perfect for New Year's day when you have lots of left overs, you are tired of eating heavy meals and of cooking and you want to sit back and relax....finally. We always have a family/friend get-together on New Year's day as each one of us has different plans on Old Year's Eve and go our separate ways. So this is where I am sourcing my ideas for that day!

Love your site. I do wish it had more pictures. Please add some type of logo that will pin your recipe on It is great advertising and we can use the recipes better. Please consider. Thank you.
