On with our Brazilian food week, today I bring you an easy to make savory appetizer that also packs a ton of flavor! Kibbe (also kibe or kibbeh) originally  a Middle-Eastern dish brought to Brazil by immigrants, but now it's been thoroughly embedded in Brazilian culture and cuisine, so you always find at parties, bars, restaurants...it's become one of their most popular dishes! And it's a perfect appetizer or snack when you're watching the Olympic Games in Rio this year! ;)

Tips for Hosting a Relaxed Dinner Party

Tips for Hosting a Relaxed Dinner Party

This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of  Santa Margherita USA  . All opinions are 100% mine. The best dinner parties I've ever hosted, or at least the ones I remember most fondly; are the "relaxed" ones where I, the host, get to enjoy every minute of it as much as my guests! So throughout the years, I've tried to hone in on what works and perfect the art of dinner parties by  keeping it all as simple as possible. Whether I have days to plan ahead, or for a last-minute get-together. For me, simplicity is the name of the party game when dinner parties are concerned!  

Smoked Salmon Vol-au-Vent Baked Eggs Recipe

Smoked Salmon Vol-au-Vent Baked Eggs Recipe

Following from last week's brunch post , and as promised; here's my recipe for Vol-au-vent Baked Eggs. Baked eggs is something I've pick up in France ( œufs cocotte ), and it's a great way to serve eggs for an occasion such as brunch, because you can get all the yummy flavors and fun of the egg (yes, eggs are fun!) without the 'slaving over a hot stove' factor.

The Holiday season is here, and I find myself mentally salivating over all the  dazzling party food ideas and quick recipes I can serve for my end-of-year parties. Let's just say I'm a tad obsessed with canapés and appetizers this time of year. It's sort of a personal challenge to try to find THE perfect Holiday recipe that ticks all the boxes (quick, easy, tasty, pretty...), and become my new go-to party food favorite!

Party Food | Gourmet Polenta Bologenese Cups Recipe

Party Food | Gourmet Polenta Bologenese Cups Recipe

Being from Italian descent, I grew up with polenta. And one of my fave dishes is creamy polenta with Bolognese sauce and generous sprinkles of Parmesan on top. SO yum!! So naturally, when thinking up delicious appetizers for our end of year parties , I turn to my Italian roots. And polenta usually figures in some shape or form, in the array of bite-size delights I serve time and time again... It's like bringing a little bit of Italy to my table :)

Party Food | Italian Sausage & Ravioli Appetizer Recipe

Italian food has a very special place in my heart due to my Italian roots. To me, it's more than food - it means love, comfort, family values, tradition... I still remember to this day, being in awe of my grandmother's pasta-making skills , in her kitchen cutting tagliatelle with a  knife, dusting them with semolina and hanging them to dry on a  broomstick made by my granddad!

St. Patrick's Day is 'round the corner, and what better appetizer than a creamy houmous, to soak up the lashings of Guinness ?!  This is a favorite dip in our house, and makes a welcome appearance on many cocktail parties because it's super easy and quick to make, quite healthy, you can make it a day in advance, and tastes DIVINE!  My husband has been know to "drink" the stuff. Neat! So I always make sure I make plenty. And I have a little secret for making it super creamy too!

Brazilian Appetizer Coxinha de Galinha Recipe

Brazilian Appetizer Coxinha de Galinha Recipe

Onward with our Wold Cup Party ideas, today I'm sharing another of my fave Brazilian recipes: Coxinha de Galinha . Coxinha come from the name for 'little thigh' in Portuguese, because these little morsels look just like...well, little chicken thighs. They are really popular, and present in most Brazilian parties and celebration buffets, so we couldn't have a Brazilian inspired World Cup party without them. Even Nigella has her own recipe for these! 

Gluten-Free Brazilian Appetizer Pão de Queijo Recipe

Gluten-Free Brazilian Appetizer Pão de Queijo Recipe

The football or soccer World Cup kicks off tomorrow, and what better way to celebrate, party and watch the games then with some traditional Brazilian recipes, snacks and appetizers ?!  They'd be cool for February's Mardi Gras or Carnaval also. These little pão de queijo (little cheese breads rolls) are typically served at breakfast or at afternoon snack, but these bite-sized morsels are also perfect appetizer to accompany a nice cold beer!! Tried and tested ;)
