Countdown Day Two to the Virtual Tapas Time Party

The Virtual Tapas Time Party is starting on Saturday and I can't wait to see what my blogger friends are making for the party from my newest cookbook, Nibbles and Bites - A compilation of Appetizers, Canapés and Finger Foods.

Nibbles and Bites - A Compilation - Appetizers, Canapes and Finger Foods
We have a Tapas Time Party most months and I make a lot of appetizers, and in this book I've compiled just a few of my favorites.  Most of them are easy to make and serve, and best of all, not only do they taste great but many of them can be made for last minutes parties, using items from your pantry.

I thought that this weekend would be a great time to really introduce the book, as Tailgate season is starting and many of the recipes from the book can be made and brought to any gathering. 

I included the crab cakes I won the People's Choice Award for in 2016 and 2017, as well as the sauces.

Marinated Olives pg 121 These are a great thing to have on hand BTW.
Tomato Bites pg 123, easy to make and tastes wonderful

Some of my favorite food people are participating so visit their sites as they post recipes, host Nibbles and Bites giveaways, and help celebrate with me.

I'd like to introduce you to Colleen. From Faith, Hope, Luck & Love Survive Despite a Whiskered Accomplice.
Again, I met her through the Secret Recipe Club, and have marveled at her food and her photography ever since. She's not just an accomplished cook but her recipes have been featured in several national publications.   Here's her blog.

And don't forget, you can buy the books here.
