I'm assuming you mean food...so I have some recipes for you. 

Quick Chocolate Truffles:

   1 pkg. (200g)  Chocolate Wafers, crushed (these are like an oreo with out the icing (one side))
   1 300mL can sweetened condensed milk 
   1 cup Chocolate Chips
   1/4 cup margarine, melted
   Chocolate chips, cocoa, icing sugar, ground nuts, or chocolate sprinkles, garnish 
 
 
  COMBINE crumbs, condensed milk, chocolate chips and margarine. 
  CHILL until firm enough to handle, about 1 hour.
   SHAPE into 1-inch (2.5cm) balls; roll in cocoa, icing sugar, ground nuts, or sprinkles.
   STORE in airtight container in refrigerator.


****************

Bite Sized Cheese Balls

 2 pkg. (250 g each) Cream Cheese, softened
 1 pkg. (200 g) Kraft Double Cheddar Shreds
 1 tsp. garlic powder
 Dash ground red pepper 
 1/4 cup chopped roasted red pepper (in jar, or char you own under broiler until black, place in covered bowl to "sweat" then peel and chop)
 1/4 cup chopped green onion
 Plain Crackers (Ritz)
 
 
 
  BEAT cream cheese, shredded cheese, garlic powder and ground red pepper until well blended. Divide in half. Add roasted red peppers to one half of the cream cheese mixture and green onions to the other half; mix each half until well blended. Cover. 
 
  REFRIGERATE 2-3 hours to allow the flavours to blend.
 
  SHAPE cheese mixtures into 1-inch balls. Roll in one of these options: finely chopped nuts, Kraft Double Cheddar Shreds, paprika, sesame seed or chopped fresh parsley. Cover and refrigerate until ready to serve.

Chop up 8 oz of mushrooms small, throw in a pan with butter, garlic, thyme, salt & pepper. A couple tablespoons of minced onion or shallot is also good. Cook it down, add a splash of sherry and a couple tablespoons of sour cream and set aside. Get yourself some puff pastry sheets and cut 2"-3" circles. Place a dollop of mushroom stuff in the middle, top with another circle, brush with egg, and bake 'em at 400 for about...20 mins.

Best stuff ever.

This  is really easy and the results are great! I usually serve it with tortilla chips and french bread slices. There is never any leftover.... Sad I guess I should be happy about that, but it is sooooo good.


SPINACH ARTICHOKE DIP

1 pkg.  (8 oz) Frozen Spinach, defrosted
1 can (13 oz) Artichoke Hearts, non-marinated, drained
2 cloves garlic, minced
2 pkg. (16 oz. total) Cream cheese, softened
1 cup heavy cream (or milk)
1 cup shredded Monterey Jack
1/2 cup shredded Parmesan

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  Mix the spinach, artichokes, garlic, cream
cheese, cream, 1/2 cup Monterey Jack and Parmesan in food processor.  Place in
oven safe dish and top with remaining 1/2 cup Monterey Jack.  Bake covered for
15 minutes, remove cover and bake 10 minutes longer.  Excellent in a crock
pot for parties.

Not sure if you want appetizer recipes or "adult beverage" recipes, so here goes:

Rich Cheese Wafers
 
1 cup softened butter
2 cups grated sharp cheddar
2 cups flour
1/8 teaspoon cayenne
 
Cream butter and cheddar, work in flour that has been sifted with cayenne.  Wrap dough in foil and chill one hour.  Roll dough 1/4 inch thick cut into 11/2 inch rounds and bake on buttered cookie sheets until golden at 350 about 15 min.  Let cool.  Make Filling:  1 1/2 cups
grated sharp cheddar 1/2 cup softened butter, 1-2 tablespoons sherry, salt and cayenne to
taste.  Spread on each wafer, top with parsley or a second wafer as a sandwich.

I had forgotten about this...we used to put apple cider in a crock pot and heat it, then add cinnamon schnapps right when everyone arrived.  the easiest spiced/spiked cider ever.  I just found a bunch of yummy snack recipes last night...did you ever specify if you needed food or drink recipes?
