Q. I’m having a New Year’s Eve Party at my home on Tybee Island, Ga. Just heavy appetizers. How many appetizers should I prepare?
A. First of all I want y’all to know that Sarah works for me. She does a great job organizing my schedule, but I guess she forgot to invite me to her party! Sarah, I always figure on 10 appetizer bites per person. The number of different appetizers you make depends on the size of your party. I like to use this rule.
Intimate Party (8-10 guests): Make 3 different appetizer choices
Small Party (11-16 guests): Make 4 to 5 different appetizer choices
Large Party (over 16): Make 6 different appetizer choices
I like to serve heartier appetizers such as The Lady and Son’s Chicken Fingers and Shane’s Sweet and Sour Meatballs when I host a party that will span over a mealtime. For parties that are held in the afternoon or evening after the dinner hour, you can offer more lighter appetizer choices, like Curry Dip and Homemade Salsa on the Fly.

I love reading about your family and seeing your pictures. I respect the fact that you are teaching your son's family values because so much of that seems to be going by the wayside anymore..maybe someday we will meet and by that time your son's may even have their own cooking show.lol..wishing you lots and lots of love from this country girl's kitchen to Brooke Deen's kitchen of love.

Love this idea. I want to do this for my sister n law for the new addition of the family. What a wonderful way to celebrate a new baby in the family.
