Artichoke Dip with Pimentos & Chiles

I love any kind of artichoke dip. I usually make this basic recipe, but I found this recipe that incorporates pimentos and green chiles. It's really good.

Curried Shrimp Croustades

I have a lot of catering “secrets” and won’t divulge many, but these Curried Shrimp Croustades I will part with.  It’s a wonderful recipe, that is incredibly easy, a huge crowd pleaser and you can make them in advance and freeze them.

Sun-Dried Tomato & Basil Cheese Ball

I am not a big fan of serving a boring cheese platter at a party. It usually doesn't get eaten. I guarantee this cheese ball will be the hit of your next party. Cheese balls were all the rage in the 1970s, but this Sun-Dried Tomato & Basil Cheese ball is an updated version of an old classic. So easy to make and the best part is that it has to be made ahead, so you can enjoy your party.

Chorizo, Potato Tortilla & Egg Skillet

On the weekends, I usually look through the fridge and concoct some sort of breakfast. This Chorizo, Potato Tortilla & Egg Skillet is what I came up with. Having a cast iron skillet works really well for this. Chorizo is a type of pork sausage with smoked paprika.
