Lately I have been receiving many requests for party menu ideas, as people begin planning their Holiday festivities.  I thought it would be fun to share some recipes from my favorite bloggers.  I gathered the most amazing appetizer and dessert recipes ~ think savory dips and spreads, as well as dessert dips and simple cheesecakes.   They are all easy to make, many require no cooking or baking, which is all very welcome when it comes to planning a party!


As I compiled these recipes, I noticed a common theme.  Savory or sweet, each of these recipes was made with cream cheese, yogurt and/or sour cream.   From using Greek Yogurt for dips to creating quick and easy cheesecake bars with cream cheese, let’s raid the refrigerated foods aisle to come up with over 30 Perfect Party Dips and Desserts for your next gathering!

I have divided the recipes into two categories – 1) Savory Dips/Spreads Treats 2) Dessert Dips and Easy Cheesecakes

Now, enough chit chat.  Happy planning and enjoy!
