      Appetizers are great but can get expensive. I avoid all the expense by starting with the basics like homemade spiced nuts(see my article), pretzels and chips are great fillers in your appetizer buffet. No one can resist appetizer munchies and they fill you up quick. Just make sure there are drinks nearby.

      Go old-fashioned with simple and quick appetizers like celery sticks stuffed with peanut butter and carrot sticks for topped with cream cheese and raisins. These can be cute and quick to make also.

      Warm appetizers like meatballs with bbq sauce of your choice is a quick item to throw into a slowcooker and forget about. I make meatballs out of ground beef, salt, pepper, mustard, garlic, parsley and cayenne. Then I pour a bottle of whatever bbq sauce I have on hand. I put it in there for 4 hours on high(or 8hrs on low). But watch it and stir so nothing burns. Done. Specifics are in my article about slow cooker meatballs.

      Dips are great and quick to make the night before parties. Use corn tortillas cut in 6 pieces and lightly fried and salted for nachos and pita chips made by baking cuts of pita bread. It ends up cheaper then buying the chips premade.
