Hi Essiebunny,

- crostini with devilled chicken livers;
- crostini with scambled eggs and smoked haddock;
- crostini with cream cheese and smoked salmon - crostini can be prepared ahead of time (toasted/baked) and cream cheese and smoked salmon ahead of time so only place the mix on the crostini at the last minute;

Hi All,
I hit a wrong button at the wrong time and got cut off mid sentence - apologies for this. Will need to wait and find out how much of my posting got through and what I need to add! And there was me thinking that I was on a roll! I was enjoying my moment of posting even if nobody else was - oh well - back to merry Scotland and re-runs of the Rockford Files.
All the best,
Archiduc

I really enjoy cream cheese topped with a dollop of jalepeno jelly on top of a stoned wheat thin cracker.

You all are making me hungry.

Essiebunny, you've probably had dinner, but came across these cute little tomato tartlets... just had to share:

http://www.bbcgoodfood.com/recipes/2942/tomato-tarts

Maybe next time?

The ingred amounts are a little vague, but definitely a recipe I want to play around with in the future.

Thanks for all the wonderful ideas. I've chosen two. They all sound so good, I think that I'll have an appetizer party and try several more.
Thanks again.

If you want to put on a show and have some fun at the same time for your appetizers, check out my profile pic. Cream cheese stuffed olives. They will make quite the splash and once you get going, only take a couple minutes each, and I also have made a cream cheese walrus (hey, I got bored, too bad lol) to go with them, as a set, they are too cute. I do not have a link or pic for the igloo, it didn't last long enough to get a picture. IF you'd like more detailed instructions or more pics PM me, and I'll get you the addy. It was very easy though. I simply removed the crusts from white bread, cut it into small (about an inch) squares and toasted some mozzerella cheese onto them, then i used a dab of cream cheese to stick them to the side of an upside down bowl and sort of staggered them or a brick effect, i stuck some on the front, placed my penguin army, walrus and igloo on a white serving platter, and laughed for days.
