Who needs to go out, when you can have a fantastic Girls' Night In? If you've been around me that past few months you've heard me say "Cheese Board" only about a gazillion times. I tend to keep a half dozen cheeses in my refrigerator to put together a cheese, veggie, and cracker bowl/plate/board at a moment's notice.
Really, who wants to cook when you can just eat cheese?
Sometimes, though, I'll also whip up an interesting appetizer or dip that I find a recipe for, like these Red Neck Appetizers I learned from Chris, a crockpot full of meatballs, or just good ol' Pie Dough Cookies. Those go great with fancy girly drinks, no?
I wanted to make a collection of some of the really interesting party recipes on my blog today because The Housewives of Oak Cliff, my best friends, are real foodies. Chris, Sheri, and Melody will certainly appreciate that I've included beets, sriracha, and prosciutto in this collection.
This Collection of Girls Night In Recipes was made using Foodie.com, which is a unique recipe collecting platform, kind of like Pinterest. They are sponsoring this post along with Trop50 and this collection that I'm sharing with you. You can sign up for Foodie.com and follow me as I build interesting recipe collections. I'll follow you back if you do!
This collection of 15 Girls Night In recipes includes:
