Happy Hour Celery Sticks

Happy Hour Celery Sticks
An old timey classic, so dam popular in the ’50s….let’s bring it back!

Let’s admit it, celery is a great low-carb snack and the crisp crunch of a celery stalk is very satisfying but it is so bland on its own. I usually make a dip for celery or melt cheese on it, but lately I’ve been loading the celery channel with cream cheese.

Cocktail Meatballs

Tasty little morsels perfect for a single bit.

Everyone likes good food and good conversation. Being able to combine the two can be a bit challenging. In a party setting you need food that is appealing and portable/convenient. These meatballs are just the thing!

Baked Brie

Baked Brie for boardgames night or just hanging out by yourself

I love brie cheese, I love it even more when it’s baked and has yummy stuff on it like sundried tomatoes or pesto or bacon or mushrooms. When I feel like brie and don’t have company coming, I’ll bake up half a wheel just for myself. Lucky for me friends left a half wheel of brie behind this past weekend and I made up this yummy appetizer just for myself.

Deviled Eggs

A classic served at every gathering my parents ever had.

Growing up there was one constant at every event or gathering where food was provided was deviled eggs. I continued this tradition when I had my own family and these became my youngest son’s favourite. So much so that he had to be reminded that there were other people that wanted food as well. I hope your family enjoys them as much.

Roasted Pumpkin Seeds

Feel like a crunchy snack? Roast up some seeds!

It’s Halloween tomorrow and after carving a pumpkin I kept the seeds and roasted them up for a super crunchy snack. There are about 85 seeds in one ounce of pumpkin seeds. That one ounce contains healthy fats, magnesium, zinc, and antioxidants. They are powerful little seeds.
