I don't really cook . What can I make that's super easy and will transport well, or even better, is there something I can buy that wouldn't look tacky? Maybe some Trader Joe's thing I don't know about? The host is already providing drinks, so I can't cop out that way like I normally would . There are about 15 ladies attending. The only things claimed so far are quiche and 7 layer salad.

Buy some good soft cheeses and fresh fruit. Maybe add some crackers. Arrange on a platter and you are done.

Or buy soft cream cheese and pour raspberry-chipotle sauce over it to dip crackers into and eat. So yummy!

A cheese plate and a charcuterie board. Easy peasy.

Fruit! Either toss it in a bowl together to make a salad or arrange it on a tray. Pretty, colorful, and yummy

Blueberry cobbler is easy to make, easy to transport, doesn't need refrigeration, and has always been a hit for me.

So easy!!

2 refrigerator crescent rolls (if you can find the ones w/o seams even better)
8 oz cream cheese
1 pound jimmy dean spicy sausage(it doesn’t taste spicy when prepared)

Brown the sausage
Blend in cream cheese over stove
( I do this the night before then refrigerate)
Spread 1 of the crescent roll sheets on an oil sprayed cookie sheet
Spread cream cheese and sausage (if refrigerated from night before nuke to make it spreadable)
over the first sheet of roll.
Cover with the second roll of crescent roll.
Bake according to crescent roll package.
Place in a large platter and cover and take to your event.

3 ingredients!!!!
Always disappears!

Fresh strawberries and that fruit dip made by mixing cream cheese + marshmallow creme together.

Thanks PT friends! I knew there were obvious things I wasn't thinking of . The mention of the fruit and cheese reminded me that I'd seen a recipe for cheesecake fruit dip. All you do is mix up the ingredients, so I should be able to handle that, and then of course I'll get some fruit to go with it. That way I don't look like a total slacker just bringing a store bought thing by itself.

Try a “French Toast Bake”. There’s a lot of different recipes & flavors on Pinterest or just google it.

It’s basically bread soaked in a custard (eggs, cream, sugar, vanilla extract, cinnamon) over night (or less) then baked. It requires minimal cooking skills & is always a crowd pleaser. It looks fancy but it’s really easy
