Fig, Goat Cheese, Honey, and Crackers
I first had this appetizer at my friend Mary's house- I love an appetizer that looks pretty and is quick to make!
Figs are from Whole Foods
Goat Cheese is from Costco
Spinach Artichoke & Parmesan Dip
I sampled this yummy dip at Costco one day and decided it could definitely be an oven-dip (it's supposed to be served cold, but hot spinach and artichoke dip is my fave).
So I scooped it into a dish, grated some fresh parmesan on top, and baked it on 350 for 25 minutes.
I used these same crackers for the Fig and Goat Cheese appetizer.
This deliciousness is also from Costco. I took it out of the jar, put it in a fancy bowl, and pretended like it was homemade (well, not really... but a fancy bowl made it not look store-bought). It takes extra yummy with these crackers. The Spinach Dip and this cheese can be found in this section.
Brown Sugar Pork Sliders
I started with this recipe in the crockpot (which cooked all day while I was at school), cut up pineapple, grilled it on the George Foreman, and made little sliders using King's Hawaiian Rolls.
I learned this trick from my mama:
Start with store-bought brownies, add store-bought chocolate icing, and voila... not nearly as fancy as these homemade brownie bites, but super quick and yummy!
