Link Parties We Love!
I work at Benigna’s Creek Vineyard and Winery and during the month of March we have the wine trail (Susquehanna Heartland Wine Trail) going on. We have food and wine pairings at each of the wineries on the trail. I was looking for some unique recipes to pair up with wine for our appetizer weekend.
I stumbled across the Savory Truffle recipe on myrecipes.com. and decided to experiment. To incorporate wine into the recipe I substituted the fresh lemon juice with wine. Turned out pretty tasty served on crackers!
With the Super Bowl coming up in a few days there are lots of parties being planned. I pinned this recipe from Taste of Home. The Pizza Wonton cup appetizer recipe can be added to your list.
Back in July I posted a Sausage Wonton Cup recipe that is very similar just using some different ingredients in the filling. The step for baking the wonton is the same. It calls for turkey sausage, but you can use whatever kind you like. I happened to have leftover fresh pork sausage in the refrigerator so I used that. And I always use what I have on hand or is left in the refrigerator.
Let’s take a look at how to make this recipe – and at the end, you can find even more links to great party-friendly foods perfect for Super Bowl Sunday.
As I’ve noted in past posts, I’m not the biggest fan of veggies.
This problem is most pronounced when I’m cooking dinner for other people. This past December, I planned a dinner party for 13 people, so I neededsomekind of vegetable dish. What to do, what to do…
Make them as unhealthy as possible, of course! :-p
I saw a recipe for green bean fries on Pinterest, and since I love Applebees green been fries, I thought these would be a great choice for the holidays with friends. I was right – they were a huge hit. Even if we did mess up the recipe a little.
Then I went to look up this recipe again to write this post…and it was GONE! Don’t you just hate that? So I found one that was close (if I’m remembering correctly), but this is a good reminder to print out recipes you really love!
These BBQ Meatballs are our favorite meatball recipe of all time. I usually make three or four batches at once and vacuum pack them for the freezer. It’s nice to be able to get some out whenever you need an easy meal.
My husband really enjoys this meal, so we made them fairly often.
Allison’s note: I recently made a big pan full of these for a dinner party with about a dozen people and they were gone in the blink of an eye. We were actually joking about bidding on the last one! No matter where we take these meatballs, everyone LOVES them! They’re great as an appetizer for a party, on a sub for lunch, or as dinner.
This recipe doesn’t from Pinterest, but instead from a close friend of our family.
Now that we’re knee-deep in football season (and baseball season for that matter), I wanted to share another great dip recipe to serve at your next tailgate or game day party. Even if it’s just you vegging in front of the couch watching the game by yourself, this Spinach Artichoke Dip makes it a party! Woo!
And if you’re not a sports-y type of person, I won’t tell if you have an Animal Planet or TLC or Bravo party with this dip instead. Woo parties!
(So much wooing! That’s how you know this dip is good!)
As you may recall, I already posted this Cold Crab Dip recipe, which is perfect for parties, and I highly suggest bringing today’s recipe to the party as well. Guest love options, and this is an especially good choice if you have friends who are vegetarian or just not into seafood.
Okay, well our grandmother doesn’t love a big bowl of gooey melted cheese. She doesn’t like cheese at all. She’s weird.
I liked the end result, but be warned – this recipe makes a ton of queso. It would be perfect for a party, just like this crab dip recipe, but for me, a lot of it went to waste because there’s only so much cheese one person can eat!
Sometimes, you need a quick recipe that holds up well as you travel to a party. When I find myself in that situation, my answer is often to bring a dip. Dips get better as the ingredients meld together, and they’re definitely crowd-pleasers.
Oh, and did I mention how gosh darn easy they are? Love it.
Last weekend, I headed to beautiful State College, Pennsylvania for some awesome Penn State tailgating with my best friends. I’ve known most of these guys and gals since kindergarten (yes, really!), so it’s always a good time when we get together! I decided to make a bunch of dips to take to the game, and this cold crab dip from Paula Deen was definitely one I’ve been meaning to pinter-test out.
Thanks goes out to Jennifer Pickard for pinning this recipe so it showed up in my stream!
These sausage appetizers are a great snack to make for any kind of party or occasion. You can easily find all the ingredients in the grocery store or change up the ingredients with whatever is in your refrigerator or pantry.
The wonton cups can be made ahead and the ingredients can be mixed ahead. I would wait to assemble them and do the final baking when you are ready to serve. You want to give your guests the tastiest little bites possible, not sad, soggy sausage cups.
