National Appetizer Day

National Appetizer Day

Did you know January 28th is National Appetizer Day? I learned this during a grocery trip to Trader Joe's. I figured I'd share with you some of my favorite appetizer recipes (among the more than 1,500 recipes already published on this site to date!) so you can get a few ideas and prepare for your big game day or your next dinner party.

Last Friday we threw a winter social party and had a lot of bite-size portions so our guests could mix and mingle. The party was such a success, people didn't want to go home! If you entertain as much as we do, I hope you'll find plenty of inspiration in this post.
