Making Better Dishes

How committed are you to creating interesting, delicious foods? I began thinking more seriously about honing my cooking abilities a few years back, and it was really cool to me to see how much happier it made my family. Night after night, I would prepare dishes that I knew everyone would love, and it was really neat to me to see our little family growing closer together. I decided to start a website completely dedicated to cooking better foods for your family, so you should check it out. I know that a lot of these tips have helped me along the way.

Lucky 7 St. Patrick's Day Party Hors D' Oeuvres Ideas

St. Patrick's Day is just around the corner, so it's time to start planning your fabulous party now. Here are seven ideas for appetizers and hors d'oeuvres that will help keep the whiskey and green beer flowing.

Shamrock Dip Bowls

This super simple idea is inexpensive as well. Simply slice off the top of green peppers and core. Slice a thin cut off the bottom so the shamrock-shaped pepper sits flat. Fill each pepper with the dip of your choice. Green Goddess dip, with its fresh herbs, is a great idea, and it goes great with fresh cut vegetables.

Corned Beef And Cabbage Bites

Finely chop corned beef, cabbage, and minced onion. Add cracked black pepper. Whip a few eggs and add to the mixture, stirring well to incorporate. Spoon the mixture into greased mini cupcake tins and bake until set for an Irish twist on a quiche.

Potato Pancakes

Shred potatoes and onions. Add a drop or two of green food coloring along with salt, pepper, and a wee bit of flour. Fry bite-sized pancakes in a mixture of both butter and vegetable oil until tender yet crisp. Set aside to drain and cool on paper toweling. Once cool, top with a dollop of sour cream, a small piece of smoked salmon, and a sprinkle of fresh chives and dill.

Tortilla Rollups

Use green-colored spinach or veggie sandwich wraps to make festive green pinups. Spread a layer of cream cheese lightly over each tortilla. Then place a layer of ham, followed by a pickle spear. Roll up, and then slice into bite-sized pieces, securing with a toothpick.

Open-Faced Ruebens

Make a Reuben with cocktail rye bread squares. Spread each square with Russian dressing, then layer with corned beef, sauerkraut, and Swiss cheese. Pop under the broiler for five minutes or until the cheese is melted.

Deviled Eggs

Deviled eggs are not only super easy, they are really inexpensive, too, and everyone loves them. For a creamy green twist, add mashed avocados to your egg mixture and then garnish with slices of green olives.

Fruit Kebabs

Use wooden skewers to place cubes of green apples, green grapes, and slices of kiwi interlaced together. Make a dip out of vanilla yogurt and a drop of green food coloring for extra added luck of the Irish.

If you are short on time, hors d' oeuvres, while easy can be labor intensive and time consuming. Consider hiring a catering company instead to help you out.
