I love throwing parties. It’s a great way to get all of my friends together without all of us ringing up a hefty bar tab at
our favorite watering hole. (Plus, we can listen to music we like!) The key to being the hostess with the mostest is being
armed with some ridiculously simple
crowd-pleasing appetizer recipes
that come together in minutes. That way you don’t have to stress out doing
anything too complicated before the party starts, and once your friends come over you can actually spend time hanging out.
These 5 appetizers are perfect any time of year.

Smoked salmon gets an added crunch when served on radish slices.

Skewering mozzarella balls and cherry tomatoes makes them easy to nosh at a party.
Get the recipe: Steak-&-Boursin-Wrapped Bells
For an even quicker preparation, try deli roast beef.
Get the recipe: Wasabi Crab on
Spicy wasabi mayonnaise makes crab sing in these easy appetizers.

These sweet and savory bites are like a cheese course in a bite.
