Help me bees! I’m having my family and Future Mother-In-Law over this weekend for dinner and I am totally failing at finding anything for appetizers/snacks before dinner. I’m hoping for something that will wow them a bit, more than the typical taco or buffalo chicken dip (although those sound delicious right now!). I’m a good cook so I can whip up pretty much anything with a recipe, but I am having total appetizer mind blank! Any suggestions?
Right now I think I’m doing these – but I need more ideas!

you should get on pinterest. They have a ton of ideas for that! Here’s one that comes to mind (I hope the link works):

I don’t have any suggestions but I am going to stalk this thread because I need finger-food app ideas for a “get to know the neighbors” party for when Darling Husband and I move in to our new house.

What about bacon wrapped gorgonzola stuffed dates and a baked brie with honey and almonds in pastry (you can do a neat design on the pastry)?

I usually do bacon wrapped weenies, different meat skewers with little bowls of dips, a cookie dough dip, and spinach artichoke dip with flatbread. If any or these sound good let me know and I can post a recipe.
Bruschetta is always good too!

You guys are awesome! And I am totally on pinterest, but for whatever reason nothing was really jumping out to me last night. That Ricotta/gorgonzola/honey bruschetta looks divine!

Tender-crisp asparagus (only like 2 mins or so in the water) wrapped in thin slices of honey ham and provolone, drizzled with balsamic vinagrette! Always a hit at my house.

Love these stuffed mini peppers
Tomato Bisque, Butternut Squash, or Gazpacho Soup Shots look really cute and you can always use store-bought if you dont feel like making the soup. If you need any soup recipes, let me know.
I also make the Barefoot Contessa’s roasted shrimp cocktail alot. It is really good. Get the biggest shrimp you can afford for maximum impact when plating them.
