Re: Help!

Do a veggie platter in front of them with mandoline, APCS, or maybe a fruit tray (or both!)

Re: Help!

YES! The Spicy Pineapple Rum Sauce over Cream Cheese - I have been doing this at every show, and it is one of my top selling items! Soooo simple, and it's the perfect answer for those people who come to a show and say "I don't cook". Just sold 2 bottles to a lady last night, who told me when she walked in the door that she was just there as a friend of another guest, and she wasn't buying anything. She ended up spending enough to get the Rubs for free! :D (2 Sauces, and a Knife)

Yep, just goes to show you that some of the simplest things we do have the biggest payoffs!

Re: Help!

Just wondering, does she want a no bake completely, or does she want it not baked at her show.... because for the Clubhouse Chicken Squares you bake the crust ahead of time and then add the other stuff as your demo, so that way you wouldn't be heating up her house or "baking" there, but if she just wants something that isn't cooked at all, then that wouldn't work. But they are really good. There are quite a few recipes like that, the 7 layer salad pizze or something like that, I understand is good, I've never personally made it...

Re: Help!

Steamed wontons purses are great too. I like mine fried better. Simple and easy and very delicious! Look under the recipe files. I think that Joy listed a great dipping sauce recipe too.

Good Luck!

Re: Help!

Thank You all for the recipies and ideas.
I went with the Greek Cheese Torta and everyone LOVED it!
Also made the lemon gingertini's which have also been a big hit this season.

Can't wait to try the fiesta version. And those wonton purses sound really yummy!
