    Hi ladies...i'm throwing a housewarming in a couple of weeks and since we'll have 20 or so guests, we decided to do an appetizer buffet instead of a dinner.
    Does anyone have a favorite homemade or semi-homemade recipe or idea to share?

    thanks in advance!

        I made two recipes from BDW recommendations and they were fabulous! The first was a beer cheese dip and the second was meatballs in a crockpot with grape jelly and chili sauce. Sooooo yummy!

                Beer Cheese Dip Recipe from BDW with my suggestions

                2 pkg 8oz cream cheese (softened)
                2 handfulls shredded cheddar cheese (regular grate)
                1 packet Hidden Valley Ranch dip mix
                1/2 cup crispy bacon pieces plus a little extra for garnish
                chopped chives or green onions for garnish
                1/3 cup beer

                Mix cream cheese, ranch mix, and beer together with mixer. Add handfuls of cheese and 1/2 C crispy bacon and mix by hand. Spoon into serving dish and garnish with some cheese, bacon pieces and green onions/chives. I served with pretzles, chips and carrots. I recommend taking it out of the fridge at least 30 minutes before serving because it will be very firm. I zapped it in the microwave for 20 seconds and that worked well too. It's soooo good!!!

                    So there's no corn in the corn salsa?

                      I'm horrible at cooking, see previous threads on my attempts! I am good for making dark chocolate covered strawberries. Just buy the microwaveable dark chocolate, I usually get Baker's Secret, dip the strawberries, place them on wax paper, pop in the fridge to cool and voila!
