Little sandwiches (cheap and easy!)
Chips & Dips (salsa, french onion/ranch)
veggie tray
cheese/meat tray with crackers and cheese ball
ham rolls (cream cheese spread on ham rolled up)
salami rolls (cream cheese spread on salami folded in half, you can add a peppercini pepper or a bell pepper piece to make it different)
deviled eggs
Tortilla Roll-Ups (use cream cheese as the spread, add Bacon lettuce tomato or ham cheese and lettuce well you could add anything really roll it up and cut it)

most all this stuff can be done in advance (early that day or the day before)


Margarita Dip---- for fruit

This cool and creamy dip is so refreshing. Try it with fresh or grilled fruit.

total- 1hr and 10 min

1 pkg. (8oz) Philadelphia cream cheese, softened
1/4 cup frozen limeade concentrate, partially thawed
2 Tbsp. orange juice
1/2 cup thawed Cool Whip Whipped Topping
a couple drops of green food coloring-optional-looks great.

Beat cream cheese, limeade concentrate and orange juice in medium bowl with electric mixer on medium speed until well blended. Gently stir in whipped topping, cover.

Refrigerate at least 1 hour

Serve with cut up fresh fruit and nilla wafers.
Makes 1 3/4 cups or 14 servings, 2 tbsp. each


I'm also looking for some finger food ideas!

My party is a valantines theme so was gonna do choc dipped strawberrys, might be good for a girls night as well.

Of course you need the basics ie. chips and dips, carot and celery batons with humous. A balance of sweet and salty would be good.

Cold pizza is always a good one and not too much hassle, or you could have it hot if it is convenient.

How about chocolate fondue with marshmallows etc to dip in?

Lots of things can be done with Filo. Make petite cupcake size shells out of filo and fill with anything you like - cream corn, cream cheese & smoked salmon, spinach & ricotta, pie filling for something sweet....goes on and on.

Sushi is always good too.

Or, marinated chicken drummets and wings....

Have fun!

Here are several delicious (and easy) suggestions:

Smoked Salmon Roll-Ups

Your Ingredients:

1 (3-ounce) package cream cheese, room temperature
1 tsp creamy horseradish
fresh dill, to taste
1/4 pound smoked salmon, thinly sliced (lox)
handful of watercress
caviar (optional)

WHISK together the cream cheese, horseradish, and fresh dill in a medium bowl and blend well.

SEPARATE each slice of salmon and lay individually on your work surface. Spread a thin layer of the cream cheese mixture evenly on each slice.

ROLL up each slice like a jelly roll and slice each roll-up into 1/2-inch pieces. Squeeze each roll-up a bit so that the cream cheese mixture forms a mound at the top. Refrigerate until ready to serve.

ARRANGE each salmon roll-up vertically (mound of cream cheese mixture on top) on a few leaves of watercress on a decorative platter.

GARNISH the top of each roll-up with about 1/4-teaspoon caviar. You'll need to press the caviar into the cream cheese mixture to adhere.


Celery Appetizers

Your Ingredients:

15 celery hearts (only use the hearts because they're more tender than the ribs on a regular stalk of celery)
3/4 cup fresh blue cheese, room temperature
1 (8-ounce) package cream cheese, room temperature
1 tsp freshly minced garlic
1/4 tsp freshly ground black pepper
kosher salt, to taste
chopped walnuts

WASH and trim the celery hearts on both ends of each rib. If the ribs on the outside of the celery hearts are pretty thick, just pull them off and save them for another recipe. You're only going to use the tender inner ribs.

CUT each rib into 3-inch pieces.

USING a paring knife and a cutting board, lay each piece on the board and make multiple thin half-inch slits on both ends. It's sort of how a fork is made... it starts out as a flat piece of metal and then they cut out the four tines on the edge. Only you want more than four, that's why you want to make 'thin' slits.

PLACE the 'slitted' celery pieces in a bowl of ice water and refrigerate overnight.

THE day of the party, you will have beautiful, curly-edged celery pieces! Drain celery and place on paper towels and pat dry.

PLACE the blue cheese, cream cheese, garlic, black pepper, and salt in a bowl and mash with the back of a fork until mixture is well blended.

FILL the centers with the cream cheese mixture and garnish with a sprinkling of chopped walnuts. (You may need to press the walnuts into the mixture for them to stick.)

ARRANGE on an attractive serving platter.


Spicy Crabmeat Deviled Eggs

Your Ingredients:

1 dozen large eggs, hard-cooked, peeled, cut in half lengthwise
4 T Hellman's mayonnaise
1 T Dijon mustard
2 T sour cream
2 T freshly squeezed lemon juice
1/2 tsp salt
1 T Louisiana hot sauce
1/2 pound lump crabmeat, picked over to remove any shells and/or cartilage
1 T capers, drained well

PLACE the yolks, mayonnaise, and Dijon mustard in a medium bowl and mash the mixture with the back of a fork.

ADD the sour cream, lemon juice, salt, and hot sauce; blend well.

GENTLY stir in the crabmeat.

USING a teaspoon, fill the whites (in even mounds) with the yolk mixture.

ARRANGE deviled egg halves on decorative deviled egg platters.

SLIP a few sprigs of flat leaf parsley or alfalfa sprouts underneath each egg.

GARNISH the top of each half with a few capers.

CHILL for a few hours.
