CRANBERRIED MEATBALLS - Ho, Ho, Wholesome!


This is a fun and sweet variation on the traditional boomer classic appetizer of Swedish Meatballs. It's kind of a Christmas style sweet and sour meatball recipe and it's really good!

Serve it up with The Christmas Cranapple-tini and then get on over to my pop culture blog for baby boomers because:

IT'S GRINCH TIME with my Mean Grinch Spinach Dip

THE TINY FOOD DIVA GOES GREEN - TEEHEE!

Today on The PopArtDiva Blog I posted "You're A Mean One, Mr. Grinch" for my Old School Friday meme. I just love The Grinch and I love that song - it always makes me laugh.

So, here's a little more Grinch for you for the Christmas season with Mean Grinch Spinach Dip for some holiday laughter - and this one you get to eat! And you can even have a Grinch inspired martini: The Grinch-a-tini!

Baked Cranberry Brie - Holiday and Christmas Appetizers

My last post was a recipe for Sugared Cranberries which ties in very nicely with this Baked Cranberry Brie appetizer. This is an easy snack recipe - just grab some of Pillsbury's Pie Dough Rolls, a round or log of good brie, some whole cranberry sauce, some pecans and you're ready to create an elegant, warm and creamy appetizer.

Try this with The Christmas Cosmo which is a cranberry based martini and will complement this dish nicely!

HOLIDAY FINGER FOODS - Sugared Cranberries

One of my favorite holiday garnishes is Sugared Cranberries. They are a wonderful accent to meat and cheese plates or charcuterie platters.

They are wonderful as a snack all by themselves, make perfect Holiday Martini garnishes and are a wonderful taste accent on a baked brie!

And remember, if you need some holiday or Christmas cocktails, stop by The Martini Diva for all my Christmas Martini recipes this month!

Christmas Appetizers - Blue Cheese Pear Tartlets

These Blue Cheese Pear Tartlets are so good I serve them all year but they are a really nice combination of sweet and savory to add to your holiday table.

To perk them up for your Christmas buffet cut some of the phyllo dough out with mini Christmas cookie cutters and place that on top of the filling just before you heat it again.

These are also great for a cocktail hour of a few people - especially if you serve them with my Pear Martini!

CHRISTMAS CRAB STACKS - Crab in puff pastry for your holiday buffet

If you read this blog often you will know I am very fond of crab appetizers. Whether they are hot or cold, dips or spreads, if there's crab in a tiny food I'm all for it!

This recipe uses puff pastry to make little fluffy crab sandwiches - stacks - for a perfect little finger food bite. The touch of horseradish gives the crab a great little zing!

Try them out and pop over to the Martini Diva for my latest Christmas Martinis to add some extra holiday cheer to the season!

Christmas Cheese Ball - Traditional holiday appetizer

I'm going to be posting my Christmas Tiny Food recipes this month and to start I decided to post the one thing you almost always see on a Holiday H'ors D'oeuvre table - the traditional Cheddar Cheese Ball rolled in pecans.

No, it's not fancy or gourmet - but the reason these are still popping up during the Christmas party season is that people like them! So don't miss out on a finger food with that comfort food touch and try my Cheese Ball out for the holiday season!

I'll be posting my Christmas Martinis this month too at The Martini Diva so stop by there and download those recipe cards for your holiday parties.

GUACAMOLE - Avocado Dip

Today is my first post from California so I decided to post one of my favorite recipes that uses avocados - Guacamole. When I lived in California before I had an avocado tree and so I was lucky enough to be able to have Guacamole from my very own avocados! I plan on planting a tree again now that I am back in the Golden State.

I can be very happy with a huge bowl of Guacamole, some crisp white corn tortilla chips and a martini from The Martini Diva! In fact, I shall be sitting on the back deck later today, letting the warm California sun caress my body as I sip a martini and enjoy my avocado dip and chips - care to join me?
