    I'm doing my Spring Preview Open House on the 28th at my house and I sent out 131 e-vites, 20 mail invitations, more on the way and so far I have two attendees. I'm using the Spring Preview flyer idea with tickets and drawings but I'm not sure which recipes to make or which one will demonstrate the best.

    For those of you who have done this already what worked for you if you don't mind sharing. Thanks.

    When I did mine last year, I had THEM fix the recipes and I did several. Anything in the DCB in the microwave would be an awesome demo. The pineapple salsa tastes great, and gets better as it sits, so I'd do that one in advance. The double-chocolate things are quick and easy and really, really good!

    I agree...getting EVERYONE involved (even the wall flower of the group) seems to get people talking about the products, asking questions, and above all....BUYING MORE!

    also, make the desert dip with the sprinkles in advance. It will deffinately get you some sprinkle orders, or the crescent rolls with the sprinkles.

    The pineapple salsa is a FOR SURE! I think the jalapeno poppers is a great & easy demo just do your bacon ahead of time. I cheat though & use the real bacon bits from sam's they are really good! When I did the California club pizza everyone was amazed that I used the refrigerated pizza dough, I think they all had a "light bulb" moment. I sold 2 par pans & only had 10 guest 2 of which already had the bar pans. Also, I used the citrus press instead of the juicer & everyone aww'ed over it too. I had a couple who tried it for themselves also.

    Also, the pineapple rum sauce is good over cream cheese & that would be easy to show.
