It's a Party Down Here {Top 10 Party Recipes of 2014}

I admit it.  
I'm a sucker for those "Year in Review" segments 
highlighting the best songs, best books, best movies, and best moments of the past year.

Of course, I've usually never heard the songs, 
read the books, 
or seen the movies.

But when it comes to laissez les bons temps rouler
...over the past year, apparently I had it covered!

Out of the Top 20 most viewed recipes of 2014, half of them were party foods.

Thank you for visiting over the past year and rolling through the good times with me.

(based on reader's views)

10. Puff Pizza w/ Collard Greens (or Spinach)
Elegance from leftovers.  Who da thunk?

(Sneaky Blue Cocktail)
For the sneaky trickster in all of us.
Canialle Bleu Cocktail | Ms. enPlace

8. Crab Artichoke Squares
Parties, breakfast,
or just because crab.

7. Snakebite
Don't worry, beer.  You can be turned into a cocktail too.
Snakebite | Ms. enPlace

6. Cape Codder
One of my favorites too.
I drank the hell outta this all summer long.
Or something less incriminating.

5. Who Dat Hot Wings
Why Who Dat?
Because Louisiana ingredients go into the sauce.
One of our favorites--we ate tons of these while watching the Saints lose play.  
The Boy mastered the sauce mid-season.

4. Roasted Poblano & Corn Dip
Because I firmly believe roasting all vegetables rocks.

3. Lemon Drop Martini
Technically not a martini.
But after a few, will it really matter?
Lemon Drop Martini | Ms. enPlace

2. Crab Rangoon
Because more crab.
And fried. And creamy.
Crab Rangoon | Ms. enPlace

1. Cuba Libre
Because everyone needs to get their pirate on
from time to time.

  1. Giggle .. I never know the names of the songs that are in the top 20 or whatever, but I can certainly sing along when they are playing ... just one of them weird things... I should share my Honey Ginger Jack recipe with you ;-) ... I think I will link it up afterall!

  2. I love party food! :) I don't even know which one I would start with - I guess I'll need to try them all! :)
