Apple Kielbasa Stack / #SundaySupper

I admit that I am not much for football, but I am very much for the food served at football games and parties! I am a finger food lover for pretty much any event. What is it about finger food? I think I love it because it is cute and small, and you can eat a lot of different types and not feel like you are eating too much! That is definitely the case with these Apple Kielbasa Stacks! Tons of great flavor, stacked to enjoy, and drizzled with Balsamic Glaze! 
 Apple Kielbasa Stack 
(printable recipe at end of page)

 Balsamic Vinaigrette (find recipe here)
1 tablespoons Butter
1 Granny Smith Apple
2 tablespoons dark brown Sugar
1 ounce Water (if needed)
1/2 teaspoon Roasted Cinnamon
Kielbasa
Dark Bread




Make Balsamic Vinaigrette. Set aside. Cut apple in to small pieces. Add butter to a frying pan set on medium high. Let butter melt and add apples, dark brown sugar, and roasted cinnamon. If sauce becomes too thick, add a bit of water, a little at a time.  Drop heat to low and simmer until apples become soft, but still have a little crispness. The best way to check them is to poke a couple of the larger pieces with a toothpick.
Slice kielbasa into thin slices. Cook in butter until brown like above, on both sides.
 Use a cookie cutter to cut out the pieces of bread. The cutter I used was 1 3/4" circle. You could use a 1 1/2" cutter also.
Stack a slice of kielbasa on top of each piece of bread. Top the kielbasa with a piece of sauteed apple. Use a wooden hors d'oeuvres fork or any type of appetizer fork to serve with the stack.
Drizzle each Apple Kielbasa Stack with Balsamic Vinaigrette. You can find the recipe here.

Four Ingredient Cheese Ball

If you are looking for a quick and easy appetizer to enjoy as the clock strikes midnight, this 4 Ingredient Cheese Ball is for you! This cheese ball is so easy that the only thing that takes time is letting the cream cheese get soft! This recipe was one of my mother-in-laws favorite things to make for family gatherings, and I hope it will become one of yours! It would be wonderful for football parties too! The original recipe called for it to be rolled in chopped nuts, but the shredded cheese adds a different dimension that is really tasty!


Four Ingredient Cheese Ball 

( printable recipe at end of post)
(makes 1 cheese ball)
8 ounces Cream Cheese
6.5 ounces Spreadable Cheddar
2-3 ounces Chopped Onion
3-4 ounces Mexican Style Finely Shredded
                  Four Cheese Blend

Place softened Cream Cheese and Cheddar in to a bowl. Mix together with a fork. I used Kaukauna Spreadable Cheddar, which is found in the deli area of the grocery.
Add the onion and mix together.
Roll the mix together into a ball.
Spread the shredded cheese mix onto a cutting board or a bowl. Roll the cheese ball over the cheese, patting it onto the ball as you roll it around. Refrigerate until you are ready to serve.
Serve with your favorite crackers. Thanks for joining me today!

Have a Happy New Year! See you next year!

Stuffed Meatballs / #SundaySupper

This Stuffed Meatballs Appetizer comes together easily and is fun to eat with friends and family. We are talking about eating, sharing and enjoying the heck out of meatballs today for #SundaySupper!  The meatballs can be put together ahead of time by letting them simmer in a crock pot, and then just place the meatballs in the bread cups when it is party time!

Homemade Chicken and Vegetable Egg Rolls

These  Homemade Chicken and Vegetable Egg Rolls are a fun and tasty party food for your New Years Eve celebration! They take some time to make, but most of the time spent is on prep, cutting and dicing, so they can be rolled earlier in the day, or even the day before and fried up before guests arrive. They stay hot for quite a while, and even at room temperature they are fantastic! I have also made these for vegetarian guests, and they were a hit. Just leave out the chicken!

Springtime Chocolate and Almond Biscotti

It's finally spring! So to celebrate, I made Springtime Chocolate and Almond Biscotti! They have the crisp outside of biscotti, and they are filled with the sweet taste of Springtime morsels. Then, about a quarter of it is dipped in chocolate and decorated with sprinkles! Sounds yummy, doesn't it! This biscotti would be the perfect addition to your Mother's Day luncheon or dinner, May Day celebration, or even an end of school teacher's luncheon!

Championship Party Dip

As we are getting into the first games of the NCAA College Basketball Tournament, I want to share this simple Championship Party Dip! This party dip came about after I bought a box of Everything Crackers from Trader Joes. I tore in to the bag as soon as I got home. I was curious as to the taste and if they were anything like the everything bagel. Well, they were really a little too strong for me. I figured that a dip was the perfect solution. I know I needed to start with cream cheese, because it certainly makes an everything bagel taste good! So I came up with this recipe. The ingredients may seem rather bland, but when you dip the everything crackers into it, it's totally amazing! It brings out all the great taste of the crackers, and is rather addicting!

Mini Meatball Subs/#Foodie Extravaganza and a Giveaway!


It's that time of year when we are busy celebrating our favorite football teams with tailgating  and parties. It is also that time of year when many of us are watching what we eat, resolving to try to do it healthier during the new year. I think this Mini Meatball Sub is perfect for watching the
 game, and because it is made with oatmeal it helps you feel better about eating and loving it!

I made this recipe to be quick and easy. It takes longer to roll the meatballs, than anything else. I used a jar of sauce instead of making it from scratch. There were several reasons for this. First, it is easier and quicker. Whether you are entertaining, making dinner or just trying to get a meal done and on the table, quick and easy is usually a priority. Second, I used a sauce that I knew was great tasting, has no added sugar, and low sodium.  I have used this sauce many times, Silver Palate San Marzano Pasta Sauce. I love substituting the oatmeal for the breadcrumbs. The oatmeal gives the meatballs a great texture, just like the breadcrumbs, and oatmeal is packed with vitamin b, and has no salt. Give it a try.
You won't be disappointed!
