Housewarming ideas

Recommended Posts

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!!!

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!

    • I have stayed at Dreams La Romana and Dreams Dominicus.  The two resorts are very different in style and decor. A few comparison points are below and fact sheets are attached for both.   Both resorts are approx 45 minutes from Punta Cana airport, close proximity to Saona Island, Catalina Island and Altos de Chavon. Top championship golf courses in the Caribbean are just minutes away including Teeth of the Dog, Dye Fore, The Links and La Estancia – all designed by world-famous Pete Dye. Restaurants are similar at both resorts.  Both offer the Explorers Club for Kids.  Dreams Dominicus  Brand new resort and in 2016 488 rooms (however additional construction was underway) More contemporary style & decor Good beach area Rooms were very nice Preferred Club located in main lobby and adjacent to main pool & beach front Food was good Center plaza area with nighttime entertainment Main lobby is small, but outdoor bar off lobby is nice Dreams La Romana Originally built in 2003 & opened as Dreams La Romana in 2008 756 rooms Recently renovated and new preferred club adults only lounge & pool added  Rooms are more traditional Caribbean decor Grounds are very lush and tropical Good beach area food was good    Dreams Dominicus fact sheet.pdf Dreams La Romana fact sheet.pdf
