Last Minute Easy Party Snacks

I would much rather whip up something quick instead of slaving away the whole party! Here are my easy to make, but sure to fly off the plate party snacks. Tested and approved! Heads up though, you’ll want to make more than you think because they get munched up in a hurry! Here we go.

Mini Cheesy Quesadilla Bites

Quesadilla bites are quick to make and delicious with a fresh side of salsa. To really impress, use corn flour tortillas for an authentic and fresh taste. Another secret tip? Buy store-bought salsa and mix in some fresh chopped cilantro. Your guests will think it’s fresh and you save a ton of time. To get the pretty bite sizes perfect for plating, use small taco sized tortillas. Easy, peasy, but still party perfect and pretty!

Pigs Do Fly- Off The Plate…

Surprisingly, these are the number one snack to disappear anytime I make them. Kids love them, adults love them, they just vanish. The best part, they are brainless to make- so turn on your favorite show you’re streaming and whip up a batch, or 5. All you need is a pack of smoked mini sausages and two cans of Pillsbury croissant dough. Cook them as directed on the Pillsbury package and time how long they last on the plate.

Final Thoughts

Enjoy these snacks, and your party too! Your snacks never have to be super intense, just quick, pretty, and party pleasing good!

Whole Foods Greek Orzo Salad Recipe Solved- Dupe Made Easy

Whole Foods Greek Orzo Salad Recipe Solved- Dupe Made Easy

 

Recipe Solved

 

If you’ve had Whole Food’s Greek Orzo Salad, the most delicious and light salad with spinach and feta, you know how addicting it is. I love it. However, for a whole family, and how much we love to eat, it gets pricey. Plus, I can’t buy everything I need at that store and sometimes can’t make it in. So obviously, I was on the hunt for the recipe. There are tons out there, but trust me when I say that none of them made the cut. They were all slightly off- UNTIL NOW! I cracked it! I figured it out, and it’s actually easy too! Plus, it’s cheaper to make at home. 

 

Some Quick Notes

   

I have a few quick notes to make this a smooth cook because I’m all for easy. You’ll need your strainer, some spoons to stir, a pot and a saucepan. No biggie. Make sure to rinse the orzo immediately in cold water, and stir the olive oil right in. Otherwise, the orzo will clump. I left our the sundried tomatoes and bell peppers, they didn’t add much to the flavor and helped cut cost so why not. You can add them in if you’d like, but again, not much flavor gained there.
