My parents started having a holiday open house party for the neighbors when my sister and I were really young. As we grew up, the party evolved from just cookies to appetizers as well. I still come home to my parents house every Christmas, so the holiday party has become a great way for me to try out some appetizer recipes and catch up with all the neighbors. I might even love cooking all day even more than I love the party itself!
Here’s what we had:
Bacon-wrapped dates stuffed with almonds
Red curry shrimp with basil leaves
Tofu-Mushroom Spring Rolls with Black Tea Mango Chutney
