Mary Kay Party - Food Ideas

I'm hosting a Mary Kay party for a friend this week and am looking for ideas for quick foods I can make. Nothing heavy, just finger foods or yummy desserts. Please help! I'm not exactly a domestic goddess so any and all suggestions are welcome.

Serve veggies or fruit or crackers and cheese. I got this super easy dip at a bunco party.

Cream together 1 8 oz brick of cream cheese and 1 cup of mayo. Add 1/4 to 1/2 cup of fresh Parmeson cheese, some bacon pieces, a little chopped green onion if you want and some garlic powder. It is always a hit and it's easy.

Take 2 blocks of cream cheese and let them get room temp. Then add a packet of ranch dressing mix, chopped olives, and Rotel mild. Mix it well. Spread evenly on a flat tortilla. Roll the tortilla pretty tight, then cut. You then have cute little pinwheels that are delicious!! I've served them before at get-togethers, and they're always a hit. The only downside to making them is that you don't have any left over to snack on!!

Mix all ingredients. Roll into small balls. Bake on ungreased cookie sheet for 15 minutes at 350. May be frozen, then baked.

I like yummy, easy ones like:

1. Veggie tray - with the ranch dip (powdered mix with sour cream). I usually use: cut up broccoli, grape tomatoes, and sliced cucumbers.
2. Fruit tray - get some fresh green grapes, red grapes, cut up cantelope, and strawberries - place neatly on a pretty tray.
3. cheese biscuits - Get canned biscuits (any kind) and cut each one in half. Flatten each half out a little, sprinkle some grated cheese (I like sharp cheddar), and fold over to look like a little half moon. Pinch the sides to keep the cheese in. Bake according to biscuit directions. You can sprinkle the top with a little garlic powder, if you want that flavor added.
4. Brownies - they're always easy! I just get the kind that makes a 9x11 tray (and especially like the kind with choc. chips in them).

Enjoy your party!

This one is easy and good although the ingredients are a little weird:

Sweet and Sour Cocktail Weiners

Take equal parts yellow mustard and grape jelly (I use about a cup of each). Heat in a saucepan until the jelly is all melted and everything is combined, stirring occasionally. Add a package of cocktail weiners and heat through. Serve warm in a chafing dish with toothpicks to spear the weiners.

As some others posted a fruit and veggie tray is great! Many of us try and get back on track once school begins! Having treats like this help!

I find a big hit is a large bowl or two of M & M's! (strategically placed!) It is easy to sneak a handful, and our hands won't get dirty! giggles

I usually always have something sweet and something salty-so everybody will be happy!

This is quick and easy

Add garlic salt, and oregeno to taste to a pack of cream cheese.

Spread in a small baking dish.

Top with pizza sauce and mozzerella cheese.

Bake until hot and bubbly.

Use as a spread for french bread.

I always make spinach dip and its always a hit! Buy a round loaf of sourdough bread or pumpernickel and scoop out enough to put the dip in! Cut the rest of the bread you scooped out into bite size pieces for everyone to dip. Everyone loves it and its DELICIOUS!!! We also make mini weenies and those are yummy too! We buy the mini weenies and a couple packages of crescent rolls in the dairy section - cut each roll in half and roll the cooked weenies in them and bake until the dough is done! They are great too!! Enjoy your party and the food!!!

I always make nachos it fast and easy and there are many different ways to make it.

Velvita Cheese w/ 1 can chili mix and heat

Velvita Cheese w/ 1 can rotel mix and heat

You can also make a layered dip mine is as follows:

1 can warmed refried beans
Then add melted velvita cheese
Then add Sour cream
Then add avacado
Then a layer of diced tomatoes
then add some minced green onion

Have a great time at your party :-)

World's easiest party dessert

A friend of mine at school once brought a clever dessert to a little shower we were having at school. She sliced up cream horns (from the bakery- you know, the pastry shell tubes with cream inside) and placed a half a fresh strawberry on top of each slice. They were lovely, tasty, and it doesn't get any easier than that! I serve them all the time now, and they go fast!

Hi just a note, chances are your friend is offering you some free-bees depending on your sales at the party? If so, & she should--don't make a lot of food--do simple snacks, as you want your guests focus on the product not on the food. So pieces of bread with dip, veggie cuts with dip, and maybe some purchased mini cupcakes or something to that effect.
