Here’s the scenario, you go to a party and you want to make sure there is nothing left on the plate of food you brought over. There are ways to make sure the foods you travel with stay fresh and finger licking good! When you are traveling with a dish, you have to think carefully about what you’re making. If you make a big pot of chili the Personalized Casserole Dish is what you need! The best part? It already has your name on it! If you don’t want to use a casserole dish you can always use a Personalized Casserole Carrier, as long as your dish fits inside the bag, it works!

But enough of how to carry the yummy snacks, it’s time to talk about the best foods that will make any party delish! One of the most important tips I can give you is to plan ahead. Think about what you can make in advance (sauces, dips, chili, meatballs) and what you need to make when you get to the party (anything toasted, fried, or crispy). Once you know what needs to be done when, you can plan what time you’ll need to get to the party so that you don’t miss the game! It is March Madness but that madness doesn’t have to extend to your cooking.

Here are 7 no fail party favorites:Buffalo Chicken and Bleu Cheese

Buffalo Wings with Bleu Cheese Dipping Sauce. The crispy wing coated in hot sauce then dipped in a creamy dressing makes anyone’s taste buds wanting for more! But, for the best results, you should see if you can do the frying when you get to the party. Bring the pre-made sauces so that it’s easy to put together. – courtesy of Living Well Market Street


Jalapeno Poppers, is another great snack that will have people coming back for seconds, thirds and fourths. Why do you think they’re called poppers?! Who can resist a cored jalapeno stuffed with cheese and spices that can be grilled or baked? Not fried. – courtesy of Skinny Taste


7 Layer Dip, is what every party needs! With the layers of salsa, jalapenos, refried beans, guacamole, sour cream, cheddar cheese, and black olives. I am pretty sure people will want to lick the bowl with their fingers! – courtesy of I Thee Cook


Sausage and pepper sliders on toasted Italian rolls are what every game day party needs! These are best made just before served at the party. – courtesy of The Food Network

032713 Buffalo Chicken Potato Skins 500 3393

Potato Skins stuffed with cheese and bacon with a sprinkle of chives and sour cream. It is better than French fries! Stick it back in the oven when you get there to crisp it up. This recipe even has some buffalo chicken added…do you dare?! – courtesy of Closet Cooking


Meatball Parmigiana Sliders is not your typical slider, the tomato sauce with melted mozzarella on top of the meatball in a sandwich pairs perfectly with a bottle of cold beer. Another trick: use turkey instead of beef for a healthier and just as delicious treat.- courtesy of What’s Cookin Chicago?
