  • So many delicious-looking, creative ideas! Next month I’m moving abroad for some time, so I’m planning to organise a party for all of my friends. Your ideas will cerainly come in handy, as I always have trouble with finding things to make. My apartment is way too small to serve a hot meal for everyone and snacks like chips or cakes are too obvious and unhealthy (and everyone is into quality eating right now). I’ve pinned this post and I’m sure it’ll be helpful!


  • Makes me want to throw a party just so I can try these!


  • Loved this thanks for the inspiration! I shared it on my socials! I have a modern day relationship & lifestyle blog called www.themoderndaygirlfriend.com and I felt this is the perfect fit.

  • I just learned how easy it is to make crackers, and now I see this here! It is meant to be. Also, I am such a fan of roasted nuts – the are so delicious and seem have an excellent effort-to-perceived-impressiveness ratio.

  • I love the recipes, especially the homemade chips and asparagus fries!

  • Zucchini fries are good, too, with a little tomato sauce dip, when asparagus is out of season.
    In France, it’s very popular to do an “apéritif dinatoire”–a buffet dinner of appetizers. We do it for Dec. 12, the festival of light, and invite a zillion people. That means mostly simple things, made ahead. Just a couple of dishes are hot, kept warm in the oven until being served (chicken wings, for example). We do it all ourselves–no caterer or help–and it’s SO worth it. It’s a different vibe than the usual small dinner parties of 6-8 guests.

  • The baked asparagus looks amazing!! x

  • Oh my lord these all look so yummy!! I especially love the look of the sweet potato chips!


  • Wow, these all look great — I’m definitely bookmarking this post! I made the pepper jack crackers before and they are definitely addictive. 🙂
