So, BGU now offers mini hors d' oeuvres?  Yes!  I have been cooking and baking for 33+ years, but somehow my baked goods have always stood out in people's minds.  After many years of baking professionally, a client requested that not only did she want me to provide desserts, but she also wanted me to make hors d'oeuvres for her event.  Of course, my answer was, "Sure, no problem."  I felt equipped and confident in not only the sweet department, but also the savory side of things.  You see, I have been cooking and creating my own recipes for many years. One of my biggest joys is seeing my family and friends enjoying my home cooked meals.  I know that their taste buds detect the "love" that was put into every detail and element of the dish.  I was humbled to be asked to provide a variety of savory items.  

The savory menu included:  Ecuadorian Shrimp Cocktail, Sausage Tapenade on Garlic Crostini, Mini Meatball Sandwich Bites, Spinach & Artichoke Dip, Ham & Bacon Quiches, Chinese Chicken Salad, Crackers w/ Goat Cheese & Port Fig Sauce, and Mediterranean Quinoa Salad.  

The sweet menu included: Coconut Cream Pies, Red Velvet Cake Pops, Lemon & Blackberry Tarts, Raspberry Cheesecakes, Caramel Apple Tarts, and Turtle Brownies.

After, many hours of work, I can thankfully say that the event was a hit.  I got through this event with the help and assistance of my husband and daughters.  We are working on the hors d'oeuvres menu with items and pricing.  I'm hoping to have this information up soon : )

Thanks again for your support.  Now, off for more planning for my son's wedding in less than 3 weeks....so excited!
