Chicken Wing Drummettes with Hot Sweet, Teriyaki or Tomato Sauce
These mini-drumsticks are so much easier to eat, with great flavor and our most requested sauces.

Seafood Cocktail offers chilled shrimp, scallops, whitefish, lobster and whatever else you like - with great sauces.

Baked Brie comes out perfect, with butter-roasted pecans and hazelnut liqueur. Our secret is simple but works every time for one of our favorite appetizer recipes.

Maple Scallops. We begged the chef for this recipe – only then to find out how completely simple it is. Spicy sweet – too good.

Crab Cakes. I knew my new son-in-law was an OK guy, the first time he made these for us. His own recipe no less. What a pleasure to make and serve.

Salmon Roll Ups are just one of those great combinations of tastes, with a caterer’s secret thrown in. So easy – so good!

Cheese Bread. My Mother’s recipe – she always served this when company came. The wonderful aroma and taste will fill your home too.

Bruschetta is served on flat crescent roll dough, fresh garlic, sun-dried tomatoes, mozzarella - you gotta try this!

Cheesy Meatballs use seasoned beef wrapped around cheddar cheese.

Easy Shrimp Scampi wraps pasta around each shrimp and marinates in garlic rich sauce.

Spinach Quiche, brilliant with red bell pepper and fresh spinach - beautiful and outstanding.

BBQ Potato Skins - Traditional skins are filled with sausage in BBQ sauce, sour cream and cheese!

Tuna Slices are hot pan sauteed, seasoned, sliced and served with sauces.
