The holidays are here! I honestly love this time of year because everything just seems to be so magical! It’s fun to gather with friends and family and spend time with those that mean the most to us. And, let’s be completely honest, there are some awesome food gatherings that happen this time of year. It seems like this is the time where we set out to impress our guests with our holiday décor and the appetizers we set out for everyone to enjoy.
However, I know that this can be such a stressful time when you’re trying desperately to figure out what to serve those who are coming over. No worries here because I am going to guide you through on some recipes that are sure to please everyone when you have them over!
Probably the greatest thing about all of these recipes is that they are super easy to make AND you don’t have to go to any weird specialty store for off-the-wall ingredients! I mean, the pomegranate molasses I used for the glaze for my meatballs came from Walmart (though you can definitely find it at any international foods market). All of these recipes don’t require any fancy equipment or and intricate techniques but they look (and taste) amazing!

Now I want to make your life as simple as possible with throwing your holiday party with these yummy appetizers. Along with the recipes, I am including a shopping menu of all the ingredients I used, as well as a meal prep schedule that I used to get everything done on time for my taste testers to enjoy. These are fool proof (I used them while watching my crawling baby) and I know that these will ensure you success for your party coming up. If you want a shopping list and a meal prep schedule, sign up below and they’ll be in your inbox before you know it!
