My daughter is a bagel addict. She could completely live off of bagels if I let her. After a while I get bored with just a plain old bagel and cream cheese. She also really likes butterflies. We are moving soon and she might have an all butterfly room! I’m a little nervous to over do the butterflies in case she changes her mind but I don’t think butterflies can go out of style. I made these cute butterfly bagels for her as a snack and she loved them! Add sprinkles to anything and she will love them. It may not be something to have every day but for a fun creative snack or a spring party butterfly bagels are a cute way to dress up plain bagels. Plus, they are incredibly easy to put together. You don’t have to have sprinkles, you could add cute cut out fresh fruit too. I tried to do that with my daughter but she wanted her fruit on the side and had the butterflies pretend to eat the fruit. However she has the fruit I am happy with as long as she eats it too. I think these bagels would be adorable for a brunch with kids and adults. Who knows the adults might like them even more than the kids!

For parties or having company over I just love appetizers! Partly because I don’t cook a lot and appetizers can be easier. Also, if I mess something up then at least there are other options. It takes the pressure off! Appetizers tend to take less time to make and eat ;). They are good for social eating because you can walk around and mingle while enjoying tiny bites. Although, I tend to end up glued to the food because I that’s one of the best parts about parties. Presentation is an important part about serving appetizers. I’ve seen so many cute ways to serve little bites. These are some creative ways to serve appetizers from around the web, click on the page name to see the recipes and how tos. I also added a few of my own ideas. These ideas can work great for homemade and store bought appetizers. Any food will look great served in these creative ways!
I personally do not have a lot of time to cook. Especially for special occasion or large groups of people. While I wish I had time to take cooking classes and perfect the skill, preferably in the south of France. A girl can dream right?! In the meantime I will stick to easy recipes that anyone can prepare in minutes. Let me tell you, these easy pizza cups are as easy as it gets! They use Pillsbury crescent rolls, which are delicious on there own and even better when you add in some pizza goodness. These little bites of pizza are perfect for the non-chef to make as an appetizer or for party food. They were approved by my picky five year old. Kid and adult approved that doesn’t happen often! With the holidays coming up I know everyone needs some easy appetizers or weeknight meals to make for guests from out of town. You have to save the heavy lifting for Thanksgiving. You could also make these for holiday parties. Trust me they will be gone in minutes!
