23 Skinny Appetizer Recipes

When sit down dinners are too formal, I love finger foods – something you can prep ahead then heat just before serving. I went through my recipes and picked out some favorites that would be perfect if you are hosting a party. Some served cold, others hot, a perfect combination to make any table proud.

  4. Every dish is just so tempting and delicious even the plating is done so beautifully. Mouthwatering recipes i must say.

  5. We preferred this place because they are all-inclusive, so you don't have to worry about linens, chairs, catering, and cake because it's all part of the package.
