Party Appetizers that are Sure to Impress

We all know that entertaining guests is all part and parcel of the summer BBQ season starting with the unofficial start of summer, May long weekend running all the way through to Labour Day celebrations.   That is a lot of food to prepare whether hosting or even just showing up as a guest with a plate of apps.

We attend a lot of picnics, barbeques and pot lucks all year long, but summer is my fave. I am always on the look out for a new recipe to try and share with friends. Something quick and easy that will not make the house hot while preparing is good for me. Salads are always great, but changing things up is fun as well. Below is a great list of Party Appetizers you can make for your next occasion this summer.
