Friday night cocktail party

It’s Friday night! Are you ready to usher in the weekend and host a little cocktail hour? You may have the bar stocked, but what about the snacks? Let’s face it, dinner’s going to be late tonight and people will need a little sustenance along with their libations. Sure, you can swing by the market and pick up some chips, dips and a veggie tray, but if you add even one of these homemade appetizers to your spread, your party host reputation will be made. In a good way.

(If you’re hosting a cocktail party for two, make a couple of these and a nice salad, and mix up your favorite drinks. Put your feet up and think about the weekend. You won’t even need dinner.)
