Recipes for baby shower orderves, and appetizers?

CHiken wings are great for mini appetizers and easy to make for acrowd you can get the frozen tyson kind in bbq terriyaki and buffalo for a lower price they tase like homemade when you bake them.
I made these for a recent going away party and they went quick.
PARTY MINI - CHEESECAKES
16 oz. softened cream cheese
1 tbsp. lemon juice
3/4 c. sugar
1 tsp. vanilla
Beat all ingredients until fluffy.
In 2 dozen muffin pans, place cup-cake liners (silver ones are very festive). Drop a vanilla wafer into each lined pan, then fill 2/3 way full with cheesecake mixture.
Bake at 375 degrees for 15 minutes. Allow mini cakes to cool (will flatten, after puffing up during cooking), with cherry or blueberry canned pie filling.
I used one part with strawberry pie filling.
If you do this I highly reccommend you use the foil liners. Its an easy recipe to make.
Have you thought about rotell dip?
the link below has a huge section of appetizer recipies for a party. Good luck. Every recipe Ive tried so far from the site has been good.
You could also make mini meatballs to serve.
What about a vegetable tray with ranch dip?
4 (8 oz.) cream cheese
2 pkgs. Hidden Valley Original Ranch party dip
1 3/4 c. diced red bell pepper
2-2 1/4 oz. diced black olives
1 (4 oz.) can diced green chilies
Blend cream cheese. Add Ranch party dip (dry). Stir in red bell pepper. Drain and dry black olives and chop green chilies (if necessary). Add to mixture. Chill at least 1 hour. Can be shaped into football using spatula and decorated with cheese and raw vegetables, using strips of cheese to make laces on football. Use with raw vegetables as dip or on party crackers. Very good with either.
SPINACH AND ARTICHOKE PARTY DIP
1 (16 oz.) carton sour cream
1 (1 oz.) env. Hidden Valley Ranch party dip mix
1 (14 oz.) can artichoke hearts, rinsed, drained and chopped
1 (10 oz.) pkg. frozen chopped spinach, thawed and well drained
1 (2 oz.) jar diced pimentos, rinsed and drained
1 lg. (1 1/2 lb.) round loaf bread, sourdough or any variety
1 lg. round loaf bread, cut in cubes for dipping
Assorted vegetables for dipping (optional)
Combine sour cream and party dip mix in medium bowl. Stir in artichokes, spinach and pimientos. Cut slice off top of round loaf of bread. Hollow out center of bread leaving a 1 inch shell. Reserve bread pieces for dipping. Spoon dip into bread shell. Serve warm or cold. To serve warm, bake in 400 degree oven for 20-25 minutes. Cover loaf with foil if browning too quickly. Serve with bread cubes and or assorted fresh vegetables. Serves about 12.
CHEX PARTY MIX
1/2 c. (1 stick) butter
1 1/4 tsp. seasoned salt
4 1/2 tsp. Worcestershire sauce
2 2/3 c. Corn Chex cereal

Mix until all pieces are coated. Heat in oven 1 hour. Stir every 15 minutes. Spread on absorbent paper to cool. Favorite Party Snack.

www.cooks.com and I love to cook if you use the mini cheesecakes you could play a game with them by stashing a mini baby item in a few for prize drawings if you are playing games for prizes
hot wings, beans with rice, salads, deviled eggs, bread, etc.
Make pinwheels by spreading cream cheese on different types of tortillas and adding various meats and cheese.

Meatballs in a crockpot

Layered taco dip and chips (find recipe on allrecipes.com)
Spread cream cheese on a tray, add a jar of seafood sauce, add couple cans of drained small shrimp, serve with crackers.
Hot wings go over good. Finger sandwiches, meatballs with a side bowl of different dipping sauces
Visit Tonys website, www. Tonysmarket.com
and go under recipes.... im sure you will find something useful.. hope all works out!
besides chips n dips there's hot or sweet wings, pigs n a blanket using hot dogs, Lil smoke sausage in BBQ sauce and use tooth picks to eat them with instead of forks, I myself like chips and dips like spinach dip with baguette thinly slice. meat ball in spaghetti sauce in small rolls. I'm making myself hungry! Have fun :]
Check on websites like Kraft foods, or Betty crocker. You can choose any of their ideas and then make them your own.. Instead of big brownies or cookies.. make them baby size... or use gender colored frostings or dips..
Ham rolls are always a hit and they are easy.
Polish ham (the good stuff, costs around $6-$7 a pound) sliced MEDIUM- too thick, not good, too thin not good. I would say at least one pound per 15 people.
Cream cheese, whipped for easy spreading
Scallions or green onions (you can omit these if you want) sliced thin
spread each slice of ham with cream cheese, sprinkle slices of green onion, then roll. put toothpicks in the roll and cut into "wheels" between the toothpicks. You should get 4 or 5 wheels per slice.

Try making mini cucumber sandwiches like you would for a tea party. All you do is spread cream cheese on toasted white bread and top with thinly sliced cucumbers. Add another piece of toast with cream cheese on top. Cut it into four squares, stick in toothpicks, and serve!
Note: The cucumber sandwiches go really well with iced tea or lemonade.
Carve a watermelon into a baby basket. Fill with fruit. (watermelon, pineapple, cantaloupe, honeydew, strawberries, blueberries) You can also use the cantaloupe, pineapple or honeydew shell as a bowl for fruit dip, whipped cream, or to hold another fruit.
Veggie tray with a choice of dip. (red, yellow, and green bell peppers are great for holding the dips)
Zucchini or banana bread muffins
A variety of crackers and cheese spreads.
A meat tray (ham, turkey, & roast beef) with fresh sandwich rolls. (white and wheat) Don't forget condiments!
Pink and Blue frosted cupcakes. (If you know the babies gender....) Use cute sprinkles or find some "baby" cupcake decorations
shrimp cocktail is always a hit!
stuffed mushrooms (yummy)
I hope I was able to give you a few ideas. If you only go with one of my ideas, I recomend the fruit. Trust me, they will love it!!
little boys/cocktail frankfurts wrapped in pastry and cooked in the oven,served with tomato sauce
I say keep it simple. Deviled eggs, slices of cheese and cold cuts, cucumber sandwiches, and other finger foods. You could also do fruit salad, pasta salad, and a tray of veges with dip.
My favorite baby shower punch is sherbet punch. Use 2 two-liters of Ginger Ale, one carton of orange juice, and one box of orange sherbet. Pour the Ginger ale in the punch bowl, then add the juice, then add the sherbet right before the guests arrive. It's delicious.
Lots of good baby shower planning ideas here:
Enjoy the baby shower!

Bruchetta! I have a very easy recipe that I came up with on my own. You will need:
-Fresh Roma Tomatoes (I use about 1-1.25 lbs. per loaf)
-Newmans Light Basalmic Vinaigrette Dressing (1/2 bottle per 1-1.25 lbs. of tomatoes)
-Basil (I don't even use fresh basil)
1. To make the bread for the Bruchetta, slice the baguettes.
2. Melt butter in microwave with a little bit of garlic powder and spread on the bread slices.
3. Bake on cookie sheet until golden brown. ( I usually set oven to 375 or so)
4. Cut up Roma tomatoes.
5. Mix in bowl with Newmans Basalmic Vinaigrette dressing and add some basil. (I usually refrigerate for a minimum of 30 minutes, I have even kept it overnight and it is fine.)
6. You can serve on a platter with the tomato mixture separate from the bread so that the bread doesn't get soggy, or you can scoop the tomato mixture on the breadh ahead of time.
Your guests will love it
