Party food!


I promised more party food, so here it is! Before we get to today’s recipes, I thought I’d mention that there are quite a few party-friendly recipes in the Recipe Index. For instance…

Dip made from stuffed tomato recipe, & crackers!

Buffalo chicken dip – serve with veggies!

Liquid chocolate – serve with sliced strawberries, bananas, & apples!

Oopsie pizza! Made a traditional pizza or use the crust to make cold veggie pizza.

…if any of these were served at a party I attended, I’d be pretty happy. All the recipes are gluten-free, grain-free, & primal friendly. & the best part? They taste so good, no one will realize they’re eating what we know as Real Food. Why? Because people don’t even realize that the crap they’re eating doesn’t even taste good!

But, that’s a topic for another day. Because now, here are two more recipes for you to try! Both are easy & incredibly yummy. First up we have stuffed dates. Stuffed with cream cheese & cinnamon, the sweet & savory combo just melts on your tongue. Your guests will gobble these up as fast as you can make them!

What you need:
» pitted, dried dates
» warmed cream cheese
» cinnamon

How to do it:
01) Slice dates in half
02) Mix cinnamon with cream cheese; add a bit of cinnamon at a time until you reach a level with which your tastebuds agree
03) Place cream cheese mixture into small ziploc blag. squeeze it all to a corner, then snip off the tip. Squeeze a la pastry bag onto your sliced dates
04) Serve!

Next up: bacon-wrapped dates. They’re best served warm, so throw them in just before your expect guests to arrive & then serve them fresh from the oven. They’re chewy, sweet & salty bits of fantastic. Try them & see if you don’t agree!

What you need:
» pitted dried dates
» bacon
» bamboo skewers

How to do it:
01) Slice bacon in half lengthwise, then cut across the middle. You’ll end up with four pieces from each slice.
02) Wrap a piece around a date
03) Slide onto a bamboo skewer

04) Once you have as many as needed, make a few more (they’ll go quick!) for yourself. Bake for about a 1/2 hour, or until the bacon is nice & crispy, at 350°. Allow to cool for a few minutes before serving!

Are you throwing a party this holiday season? I might be throwing the New Year’s Eve party, & if I do, you better believe there’s going to be tons of yummy food. What will you be making?
