Cocktail Parties...

To say these have a theme is really pushing it. I don't want to hear from any ethnic groups saying how horribly I've mangled their culture and/or cuisine. These parties are loosely based on different cuisines. Each party has a mix of things you make yourself, and things that you buy ready to go so that you're enjoying the party, not the kitchen.

Clicking on "shopping list" for a complete rundown of what you need, clicking on links will show recipes or samples of items you can purchase pre-made. Mix your dips the night before so the flavors meld, whip up a pitcher of the cocktails a half hour before your guests arrive. Enjoy!
