    Goodies for Quilting friends

    My fellow quilter is kind enough to open her house for get together. We are all going to take an appetizer. I initially thought to take cookies but it seems that's what everyone else is taking. Any suggestions for a quickie, tasty appetizer?

    What about a cheese ball and crackers? Or vegetables and dip? There are some cute display ideas for both on Pinterest.

    Vegetable dip tray. I know at our get togethers there are way too many sweets. Now sweets are my weakness, but it's oh so nice to have a plain carrot stick or celery to cut the sweetness.

    This is a great cheese ball recipe & very easy to make.

    Dried Beef Cheese Ball
    2 (8 oz) packages cream cheese, softened
    6 oz. dried beef, washed thoroughly & cut into small pieces
    4 green onions, chopped
    1/2 t. onion powder
    1/2 t. garlic powder
    2 T. Worcestershire sauce
    Finely chopped nuts

    In a medium size mixing bowl, combine cream cheese, dried beef, green onions, onion powder, garlic powder and Worcestershire sauce. Form the mixture into a ball. Roll the ball in finely chopped nuts & refrigerate overnight.

    Here are a couple of my 'go-to' quick appetizers..

    ShoePeg Corn Dip (I don't always put in the jalapenos) - https://thesouthernladycooks.com/201...epeg-corn-dip/ I buy the big Fritos for this dip.

    Artichoke Dip - https://www.allrecipes.com/recipe/14...artichoke-dip/ You can use Pita Chips, Baguette Bread or just about any type of cracker/chip that you prefer for this dip.

    There are many ways to make Tortilla Pinwheels that are always a hit too.

    Good luck!

    A friend needed an easy app for a church gettogether recently. I did stuffed celery for her. One batch with cream cheese/bacon bit stuffing; one batch with cream cheese/chopped walnut stuffing. Apparently every piece was gone before she even got any, lol! Quick and easy.

    For a quick item, I buy the package of phyllo cups and fill them with a chicken salad, tuna salad or even a thick pudding (my friend's favorite is a banana pudding with a crushed vanilla wafer on top). They are the perfect bite size treat and couldn't be faster and easier!

    You just reminded me of one my Mother used to do at Christmas time ...... prunes stuffed with orange cream cheese. Hated the thought then, but now ... I think I just may like it!

    Stuffed celery for us meant stuffed with cheez whiz!
    The irony ... liked it then, but now ... hate the stuff!
    Now, just give me cheddar cheese. The older the better!
    (and yes, I hated old cheese as a kid)

    I have made this cheese ball several times. I have even cut the recipe in half when I want something for a smaller gathering. It has always impressed and there has rarely been any leftovers. Plus it's just darn cute!!

    Never argue with an idiot. They'll drag you down the their level and beat you with experience.

    I have a similar type party on Saturday, so I'm enjoying all the answers too. Think I will bring quiche and stuffed celery to mine.

    This is a great recipe and is a sweet twist to a cheese ball. Enjoy.

    Chocolate Chip Cream Cheese Ball

    1 package ( 8 oz) cream cheese, softened
    cup butter (no substitutions), softened
    cup powdered sugar
    2 Tablespoons brown sugar
    teaspoon vanilla
    cup miniature semi-sweet chocolate chips
    cup finely chopped nuts
    Graham crackers

    Beat cream cheese and butter until fluffy. Gradually add sugars and
    Vanilla. Beat just until combined. Stir in chocolate chips. Cover and
    refrigerate for 2 hours. Place cream cheese mixture on a large piece
    of plastic wrap. Shape into a ball. Refrigerate for at least 1 hour.
    Just before serving, roll cheese ball in nuts. Serve with graham crackers.

    Yield: 1 cheese ball – about 2 cups

    Quick, easy, not sweet
    use one block of cream cheese
    Put it on a pretty plate with a cheese spreader
    pour salsa over the cream cheese
    Put some crackers on a plate
    Done. Disappears quickly!

    BONUS: You can assemble it all at the location of the party, so no spills or mishaps on the way to the gathering.

    That's OK ... I'm quite happy to get your recipe.
    Looks like easy, yet quite tasty!
    I'm always keen to find new easy ones ... yet look impressive.
    This probably fits the bill!
