Mozzarella and Tomato Kebabs with Balsamic Glaze

These easy to make Mozzarella and Tomato Kebabs with Balsamic Glaze are a refreshing snack or appetizer, and always get devoured whenever I bring them to a pot luck. I wait to put the Balsamic Glaze on top until serving time or it can drizzle off. You can also add a basil leaf in between the mozzarella and tomatoes for a Caprese Kebabs. 500 recipes like this one can be found in our cookbook "Rocky…... view full recipe

Hollowed out potato skins filled with melted cheddar cheese, crisp bacon pieces, sour cream and chives

Potato Skins

These Potato Skins are easy to make, and even easier to eat! They disappear so fast whenever I make them as an appetizer. They are always a sure bet to never have any leftovers. I often use small baby potatoes for these and they're "popper" size. But you can use full sized potatoes as well for larger ones. Typically with the larger ones I'll cut each half into 2 or 3 wedges to make them…... view full recipe

Bacon Wrapped Jalapeno Peppers filled with cheese and sprinkled with brown sugar and chili powder

Jalapeno Poppers

These Jalapeno Poppers are super popular in my family. When I host a party, I ALWAYS have to have these Jalapeno Poppers or I will be chastised. They aren't hard to make, and are always a hit.

Buffalo Chicken Dip with Tortilla Chips

Buffalo Chicken Dip

My daughter shared this recipe for Buffalo Chicken Dip with me several years ago. She makes it all the time for her family as appetizers, they all love spicy foods. This is more of a "medium" heat. If you want it spicier, add more wing sauce. If you want it more mild, add less. You can also change it up and make it a BBQ Chicken Dip by substituting BBQ sauce for the wing sauce.…... view full recipe

Black fondue pot with melted cheese and dipped bread with wine and more bread and cheese in the background

Cheese Fondue

Who doesn't love Fondue?! We do! I have tried numerous fondue recipes over the years and this by far has been our favorite cheese fondue recipe. And there is so much more to dip in this rich cheese sauce other than a good bread. Try veggies such as broccoli, cauliflower, asparagus and carrot slices, for example. Freshly sliced apples and pears, along with some grapes are also an excellent accompaniment to this delicious cheese sauce.…... view full recipe
