This collection of family recipes for appetizers, hors d'oeuvres, dips, spreads and other party foods includes many of my favorites. Every now and then, I plan a dinner using a variety of finger foods in place of a regular meal because I like them so much. Placing the recipes in categories on this page for ease of browsing was a challenge, mainly because some can be used interchangeably. For example, all of the hors d'oeuvres are wonderful on a party buffet, but some can also be used as a first course appetizer. Additionally, some of the appetizers can be served as main dishes, as indicated on the individual recipes. I hope you find what you are looking for....and enjoy!
