Aloha Friday

Photobucket

It's Aloha Friday over at An Island Life! Answer my question and make sure you post one on your blog! After that, go relax because today is Friday!!

My question for this week is:

What is your favorite finger food or dessert? Do you take a gift for the host?

We have two Christmas parties tomorrow and I have to take a finger food or dessert. I always take my brownies but am thinking of taking a finger food of some sort too. And I usually take a bottle of wine with a stopper as a gift for the host.

Pin It!

I really like these stuffed jalepeno peppers that I make. We usually take a bottle of wine as a hostess gift! :)

I always take a hostess gift...candles, wine, chocolates..etc.

I love spinach dip!!

Emilie said...

I think a hostess gift is always nice but rarely get one myself and I'm not great about giving one either although I do always offer to bring something.

I love anything wrapped in bacon, like bacon wrapped water chestnuts or wieners! :)

I usually bring something like my olive dip or cheese ball.

I like the finger foods- especially the veggies. Depends on the host and the circumstances.

Kelli @ RTSM said...

I usually take cookies of some sort, but I have a recipe for a Bacon Cheese Ring that is an amazing appetizer!

dont know never been invited to that kind of party ..sorry im of no help.. but a pan of warm brownies are welcome at my house anyday ..

Carrie said...

My favorite finger food is pretty much anything :) I eat it all!

And I always bring a gift. I used to live in Ukraine, and you NEVER show up to someone's house emptyhanded there. It's stuck with me.

Love to make chicken wing dip & taco dip.

I usually bring an ornament for the hostess.

Annie said...

I love "cielito lindo" it have cream cheese, cheddar cheese, lettuce, tomate and mild sauce and you put it on tostitos (chips).

Stopping from An Island Life.

Have a great weekend.

I think this year we'll be bringing bottles of mead to our party hosts/hostesses. We recently found some DELISH local honey mead.

I think desserts are easier to bring than finger foods -- you can't go wrong with brownies!

Midday Escapades said...

I like savory foods - maybe shrimp wrapped in bacon. Yes, I think it's appropriate to bring a small gift.

I love spring rolls, and warm crab dip, and desserts...Christmas cookies! I do bring a hostess gift. Usually wine, flowers or something that goes with the theme of the party.

Kari @ A Giveaway Addicted Mommy said...

I love those cheesy pigs in a blanket or bagel bites. If I am making something however, brushetta is always an easy thing and people think you really worked hard and you really didn't.

As for a hostess gift, I normally bring stationary.

Baba said...

I'm a cheese and crackers person and yes I do try to take the hostess a gift. Wine or flowers/plant.

~ Noelle said...

lol, i am not one to cook, so i normally ask if i can bring plates/cups..
but, in my defense, i hung with the party crowd... normally guys and i was in charge of a party... lol, that meant meeting up somewhere.

Stacie said...

Well since christmas day is at my house this year I am make a Ginger Roll Dessert. I am also making part of the dinner too.

Xmas Dolly said...

I make a veggie dip with Philadelphia cream cheese, a tiny can of V8 Juice, and a package of Seven Seas Italian dressing. I mix it all togeter and dip raw veggies in it. Mmmm that stuff is good. As far as a gift for the host it depends what kind of party it is. If it's a fancy party (dress-up party) then yes I'll bring a bottle of wine, but if not know, I just bring something to pass.

Jess said...

I dont go to many parties.
Fudge, veggie tray, chips & dip, gosh what else....oh this yummy raspberry pretzel salad & I usually do a hostess gift
