Can we say appetizers, YUM!

OK so I am always trying to find a new appetizer or food to bring to Holiday parties. I want to impress of course and pretend like I came up with this awesome appetizer myself ... of course I didn't LOL. Here are a few appetizers you can impress your friends and family with this Christmas..

Artichoke & Jalepeno dip
So My husband and I love this Artichoke dip it is freaking awesome and goes great with a baguette. It can be kind of pricey but its least expensive at Costco. Sometimes Smith's will have it on sale.. Sometimes..! You have to buy the Jalapeno one though, that's the best and it has a little kick to it!  If you poor some into a baking dish and warm it up in the oven, no one will never know its not homemade! Hehe just kidding..
 or am I   : D

I love these ideas they're so adorable and you can't go wrong with cheese... EVER! 

Piggies in a blanket
Piggies in a Blanket are such a cute fun idea especially for the kiddos! Just get some Crescent rolls (Pillsbury) and mini hot dogs. Than cut the crescent rolls in half and roll the hot dogs in them ,than bake them for the amount of time it says on the crescent rolls wrapping. You can also buy normal hot dogs and roll them into the crescents without cutting them in half, than cut a sliver in the hot dog to put cheese inside before you bake. Than when they are cooked, cut them in half to make them last longer.  

Bean Dip
So my step mom has this awesome Bean dip recipe which is to die for! She will give you a step by step process on Her blog on how to make it and it's super easy. You just warm it up in a crock pot and serve it up with some Tortilla chips. It actually makes a huge amount! Here's the link. Just scroll down a tiny bit until you find it!

Chicken Fingers
Chicken Fingers are another great appetizer. I found this recipe in Parenting Magazine. You take chicken tender loins or breasts and cut them into strips. Than you coat them with flour and dip them in a lightly beaten egg . You than roll them in bread crumbs, Chopped cooked bacon and cheddar cheese. Bake them for 20 minutes at 400 Degrees! So yummy! Get ranch or blue cheese as your dip. 

Santa crackers
Oh my goodness such a cute idea! I couldn't find the link for this picture on Pinterest so I have no idea where it came from. But It seems pretty self explanatory! 

Have fun with them, make them your own and enjoy, Til next time...
