This-An-That: Appetizers, Desserts & Drinks

So yesterday I hosted a  Party, for my daughter’s consulting business. Of course, this gave me an opportunity to work on  more recipes. 


Myself and my daughter, Katie (And grand-baby number two is hiding in there 😉 )

And we had a helper in the whole ‘set-up process ….


This is grand-baby #1….he likes to help his mommy!

For drinks, I did Rum, Vodka and Wine. For the Rum & Vodka, I tried using fresh fruit in a nutribullet….pomegranate, avocado, lemon, lime and orange. However, my friends and I noticed, the vodka seemed to neutralize the fruit… and it came out bland…so if anyone has another way to make mixed drinks with real fruit and be less bland, feel free to post below.


For a simple quick dessert, I made mock taffy….


It’s simple….marshmallows and peanut-butter….that’s it.  Then I drizzled some melted white chocolate for a topper.


For some veggies:  I went with Sweet Peppers, saute’d in Olive Oil….


Then I decided to stuff them with fresh avocado and cream cheese…

After stuffing the  cream cheese and the avocado in there, I served them on some cute little appetizer trays, I picked up at Pat Catan’s.

For small sandwich bites, I sliced sausage and  garlic bread sticks.


But the real hit seemed to be the pumpkin pie with graham cracker crust, topped with drizzled white chocolate……

For my friends and family, Thank You All so much for attending….it was nice to have a gals night. And as soon as my orders come in AND I order a couple more items, I’ll  post the finished laundry room….By the time I’m done, I’ll be HYPER-organized.
