Holiday entertaining - easy recipes to impress your guests

Last weekend, I hosted a small holiday gathering for a few close friends. For me, the best part of holiday entertaining is creating not only a lovely atmosphere, but also a delicious menu. Yet with so many party and entertaining websites, the task of selecting the best menu can be daunting!

So today, I want to share some fabulous “finger food” recipes that I served. They were not only a huge hit, but also quick and easy to make!

Happy holidays and happy entertaining!
