Two Appetizer Bites - Gorgonzola Grapes & Spinach Puffs

Little appetizer bites, little bits of yum. I know you’ll love these heavy hors devours. These two recipes are delicious and relatively simple. The gorgonzola grapes are rich and juicy and the spinach puffs pack a salty little feta punch. 

Spinach, Feta, & Onion Puff Pastry Bites - a quick, delicious appetizer.

One of the most fun ways to eat at home is to have a large spread of several small items. It's easy to lay out a cutting board filled with cheese, crackers, and olives; a bunch of fruit; some nuts; and a few puff pastry treats. The best part is it looks impressive! We eat with our eyes as well, so having a table set out with lots of different types of food makes people feel like there's an abundance, even if it didn't take you hours to make.
