A.J. Rathburn shows you 50 different recipes that you can use to satisfy those late night munchies or for hors dourves at your next party. From finger foods like Caprese Pizza Puffs to more substantial fare like Cannoli, you'll find so many lucious choices that you won't know where to start. There's simple ideas like making finger sandwiches or your basic onion dip, but there's also more elaborate recipes like the Grilled Honey Teriyaki Chicken. But take heart, all of these recipes are very simple and usually only require a half dozen ingredients. Take the Caprese Pizza Puffs, for example. All they take is a can of refrigerated biscuits, some marinara sauce, fresh basil, and your choice of cheese. 10 minutes to make and 10 minutes to bake and you're done! Bah-da-bing, bah-da-boom! All of the recipes are accompanies by gorgeous color photographs and many include suggestions for complimentary libations that are equally inventive and easy to prepare. What more could you ask for?
