One sure fire appetizer we've always used in my family is to pour a lot of pickapepper sauce (you'll find it near the A-1 sauce) over cream cheese and serve with crackers.  It sounds disgusting, but it looks elegant and everyone loves it!

One of our favorite kid things is to buy a "can" of dinner rolls (y'know, the dough you find in the refridgerated section in a tin you have to pop?), roll out the whole sheet and slice it in two lengthwise.
Then you roll each up with a couple or three hotdogs so that it resembles a snake. Olive rings for the eyes, some gentle knifework to make scales, red bell pepper for a tounge...
bake it, then serve with mustard. So cute!
Happy birthday, baby! Cheesy

There's always something good.

For a fancy-schmancy-looking one that is super easy, you can buy these Pepperidge Farm frozen puff pastry sheets...thaw one out, take a wheel of brie or other meltable cheese, put it in the middle, spread jam on top and then wrap the pastry around it.  You sort of pinch it together at the seams and stick it in the oven for like 20 minutes (or whatever it says on the package) and voila!  So impressive, so simple.  I took one of these to a party and this one girl ate the entire thing.

for a sweet treat you could go retro and make cake and jam pinwheels.

mix up a box of yellow cake mix and pour into a jello roll pan
bake it
let it cool
spread it with preserves (or icing if you want)
roll it tightly along the long edge
let it rest on the seam so it sticks together
slice in one ince sections all the way down the log
arrange them on a tray

not super healthy, but not store-bought!


you could try your hand at a berry and grape topiary.

there's a place in town that makes these with all sorts of fruit cut into flower shapes, but to make it easier you can use berries and grapes which only have to be washed

styrofoam cone
aluminum foil

cover the cone in foil (you may want to anchor it to a plate or something with a bit of hot glue on the bottom)

stick toothpicks halfway into the foil cone in a symmetrical pattern all the way around.

gently push the fruit onto the toothpicks.

continue until you can't see the foil.

you may want to set out a bowl of sweet yogurt dipping sauce, too.


You got no fear of the underdog. . .that's why you will not survive!

OOH!  This is a holiday tradition at my house!  Serve with wheat thins and triscuits.  Perfect!

Now some actual suggestions:

My mom does little ham rollups that look really classy.  Buy some sliced ham from the supermarket.  Spread a thin layer of cream cheese on a slice, and roll the whole thing around a scallion (those thin, tubular green onions).  Then cut the thing into inch-thick slices.  Serve with crackers.  They look like little spirals!

You could probably do some without the onions if there's little kids, but scallions are pretty mild anyway.
