Making Appetizers Everyone Will Love

There is a lot to be said for sticking to classic recipes when making appetizers. Everyone loves crisps, olives, cheese, chicken wings and cold cuts after all, don’t they? Even though this might seem like the safe route to take when planning easy party appetizers, it is fun to create memorable appetizers too.

Obviously, you want your starters to be memorable for all the right reasons, not because one of your guests suffered third degree burns when biting into a piping hot appetizer or stained his shirt with a messy red dip because you forgot to provide napkins! Making appetizers everyone will love is a mixture of creativity, know-how and patience.

Making Appetizers: Ingredients and Presentation

An appetizer might be memorable because of the way it is presented, the fine ingredients you have used to make it or because you are serving an interesting mixture of classic cuisine and exciting exotic items.

If you get the ingredients right and the presentation right, your appetizers are going to be a resounding success. Choose your dishes and plan what you are going to make in plenty of time. This means you have time to assemble your ingredients and create everything.

Quality and Quantity

Making Appetizers Everyone Will LoveRunning out of food is never a good idea so make sure you have plenty. A lot of recipes can also be enjoyed the following day if you have leftovers. Maybe you just want to make two or three kinds of snacks and this is fine, so long as you follow the recipes carefully and present them in an attractive way.

If you are not sure how many people you will be catering for, you can have nuts, bread, cheese, and olives on standby and get these out if you do not think you have enough appetizers. Hungry people will snack on any tasty-looking food you leave around them.

  • Fruity Rice SaladsHealthy Desserts with Banana
    Although fried banana wontons are not the most diet-friendly dessert, they are great for an occasional treat. If you want something a bit healthier, then you could adapt this recipe or make another one. Healthy desserts with banana as one of the ingredients are sure to satisfy your sweet tooth and they’re healthier than a simple carb and sugar confection.

  • Grilled mussels recipeHow to Grill Mussels
    When the weather is cold, mussels steamed in the pan with white wine and parsley makes a wonderful meal, served with warm garlic bread. Then maybe follow them up with some mulled wine or hot apple cider. This is why everyone should know how to cook mussels.

In the following recipe we are taking live mussels and cooking them in foil packets. They are served with a butter, parsley and white wine sauce, along with some bread. This makes a lovely appetizer for 4 or an entrée for 2. If .....
  • Lebanese Lamb MeatballsLebanese Lamb Meatballs
    I love this Lebanese lamb meatballs recipe. I’ve only made the meatballs once so far but it’s something I’m definitely going to make again! These Lebanese lamb meatballs boast plenty of herbs in the form of parsley and mint. You might be surprised at the amount of herbs in these meatballs but, believe me, the combination works really well. Ground lamb is something I don’t use that often, just because the only place I can get it where I live is the Cash and Carry and that’s not somewhere I go much, but when I do use it I like to make something special, perhaps some comfort food like shepherd’s pie, or else .....
  • Tom Kha Gai Soup RecipeAuthentic Thai Chicken Soup Recipe
    Yesterday I decided to get a Thai massage. I suffer from a stiff neck and shoulders. For some reason, I hold all my tension in there! I love a good hot oil massage but the Thai massage is, well slightly different. More ‘painful’ but today I can move really freely and feel great! The woman was literally walking up my legs and back, digging her knees and elbows into me and making me yelp! However, ‘no pain no gain’ as they say, and today I can honestly say I feel great after it. And yes, all that gave me the inspiration to make this authentic Thai chicken soup recipe.

  • Pork Crack Slaw with Ginger and SesamePork Crack Slaw with Ginger and Sesame
    This pork crack slaw recipe is really good if you want to make use pork in a low carb dish. Featuring ginger, garlic and green onions, this pork crack slaw recipe has a strong Asian theme which you will love. The original crackslaw recipe is Asian and, while you can theme your crackslaw on Greek, Italian or another cuisine, the Chinese recipes always taste best, at least in my opinion. Ground pork is a budget choice and while it is often used to make meatballs or burgers it is also great in this recipe because it suits the Asian flavors and soaks up all the different tastes. It just works well! Pork Crack Slaw: Maybe Try a Ground Beef/Pork .....
  • Stacking Jewelry Tray System
    Stackers are the ideal way to store your precious trinkets and the best thing about these is you get to choose which trays you want to have. I have a stacking jewelry tray system and really love it. Got a lot of earrings but not many rings? Then pick some of the earring trays and don’t get a ring tray. Got lots of chunky bracelets? Then get a tray divided into 3 or not divided at all. You can see how this works now! You can personalize your own stacking jewelry tray system and make it as tall as you wish. Choose from the small or large width/depth depending how big you want it and how many trinkets you have to store. A stacking jewelry .....
