  1. Now this is what I’m talking about! These look delicious and they don’t look overly complicated either! I’m doing lots of entertaining over the holiday and I’ll be trying several of these recipes out.

  2. I was just telling my daughter that we should do an appetizer lunch for Thanksgiving this year. These all look like delicious options!

  3. I am all about the appetizers when it comes to this time of year! These all look great but I am so drawn to the shrimp with spicy mayo one!

  4. Yum! We love appetizers for spontaneous gatherings at our place. In fact, our New Year’s Eve party is always all appetizers and it’s always very well received.

  5. OMG bacon candy! I have a friend who is obsessed with bacon. She will go crazy over this! I will have to share it will her.

  6. Oh my goodness! All of these recipes sound so amazing, but the two tot recipes look the best, to me! I will definitely have to make these this year! I wish I could make the shrimp, but my husband has an allergy to the preservatives in shellfish when frozen.
