I remember simple things like celery with cream cheese filling, or whole pitted dates stuffed with walnuts before a holiday dinner. I especially loved cheese and crackers.

Today I would mix up some Nuts'NBolts, or Herbed Pecans, or Herbs'NCheese; and prepare fresh celery, carrots for dipping known as Crudites. I love the Mexican Seven Layer Platter also, but we didn't have that when I was a child. There are also fancy things like Shrimp Wrapped in Bacon, Sweet and Sour Meatballs and Puff Pastries.

How to Make Finger Food a/k/a Nibbles

Step-by-Step

  1. Simply let cream cheese soften and mix with your herbs, and a little minced garlic if desired, for vegetable platter. I use Herbs'NCheese- Joyce's Recipe. It's like that commercial cheese you buy in a small box at the store which is expensive!
  2. Mom always had celery with cream cheese filling, or dates filled with cream cheese or walnuts!
  3. Savory nuts are wonderful, and I had a recipe given to me which used Pecans, and it's called Herbed Pecans! I love it, and it makes a very sophisticated appetizer for a grownup-buffet party table.
