    use egg roll wrappers, place them in a cup cake pan (they shape like a taco bowl

    then put a teaspoon of sloppy joe meat or taco meat in it will a cheese topping, and bake for 6 minutes until the cheese melts,..boy are they good and fast.

    I also cut crescent dough into smaller pieces and wrap them around a hot dog or little smokie, they are cute and tasty when they come out of the oven.

    If you want to eat truly healthy, lose body fat consistently, normalize your blood pressure, cholesterol levels, prevent cancer, and even boost your brain health and energy levels, you may have heard all over the news that the Paleo Diet has been found to be one of the best methods of achieving all of these benefits compared to any other popular "fad" diets out there. Go here

    The truth is that the Paleo Diet will never be considered a fad because it's just simply the way that humans evolved to eat over approximately 2 million years. And eating in a similar fashion to our ancestors has been proven time and time again to offer amazing health benefits, including prevention of most diseases of civilization such as cancer, heart disease, alzheimers, and other chronic conditions that are mostly caused by poor diet and lifestyle. One of the biggest misunderstandings about the Paleo Diet is that it's a meat-eating diet, or a super low-carb diet. This is not true

    Antipasto is the best for a house party. Just put layers of cheeses and Italian cold cuts together on a plate.

    Different Types of Crostini's. Buy a baguette from the supermarket. Slice them and brush with olive oil and lightly toast. Put what ever you want on them. Roasted Peppers and Cream Cheese, Saute some mushrooms and top with pecceriono cheese or the classic brusetta.

    How about Pizza? Get some Boboli from the supermarket and top it with whatever you want and slice into small pieces.

    Theres this cold salad my mom always makes, its super easy, and you cant go wrong w/ it. Everytime she makes it, people always ask what she puts in it.

    *First bring the chicken to a boil. (A whole chicken) (Dont throw away the broth, you might want to add some at the end)

    *Then in a separate pot, boil a bag of cut peas and carrots

    (remove the water from the peas and carrots, before they get soggy)

    *Boil potatoes (about 8-9) I have a big family and make up to 10-12 servings

    *Now that you have boiled the chicken and peas, cut the chicken in little shreds, and mash all the potatoes. Mix the chicken and potato,

    *Add mayonaise, about 5 spoons, depending on how much you like. Keep tasting it, thats how I measure ;)

    *Finally add the peas and carrots, mix it up a bit

    and there you go. Chicken salad.

    *Oh and add some salt and chicken broth for more flavor.

    Eat with Crackers. (saltines)

    Or with Tostadas.

    YOu can also make little subs. Its very inexpensive and everyone likes them. You can have turkey, ham, and tuna. SEt it up in a way that they can choose and pick what they want on their little sub.

    Have fun! Hope you like the chicken salad!!

    Here's a couple of my favorite appetizers:

    1) buy some deli thin sliced corned beef and thin slices swiss cheese. Lay a piece of beef flat, spread with mustard, top with cheese. roll up to make a roll and use toothpick to secure. easy and yummy

    2) Spread an 8 oz. package cream cheese out on to a plate, like you were icing a cake. Add a cup of cocktail sauce and spread evenly. top with crab meat or shrimp. Serve with crackers. Yummy

    Put a bunch of lil smokey's in a crock pot, cover with BBQ sauce and heat till hot and then turn down to keep warm. Serve with crackers and cheese. If you don't want to buy lil smokeys you can also slice polish sausage up. Its cheaper that way but still very good.

    spread cream cheese on a flour tortilla, line with ham, roll up with a green onion in the middle and slice in rings.

    Either buy or assemble a veggy tray with ranch dip.

    Finger sandwiches or a lunch meat tray with cheese and crackers are good as well.

    Homestyle Potato chips


    4 medium potatoes, peeled and sliced paper-thin

    3 tablespoons salt

    1 quart oil for deep frying


    Place potato slices into a large bowl of cold water as you slice. Drain, and rinse, then refill the bowl with water, and add the salt. Let the potatoes soak in the salty water for at least 30 minutes. Drain, then rinse and drain again.

    Heat oil in a deep-fryer to 365 degrees F (185 degrees C). Fry potato slices in small batches. Once they start turning golden, remove and drain on paper towels. Continue until all of the slices are fried. Season with additional salt if desired.
