Temple and Table is all about parties and fun gatherings! We use them as an opportunity to have some fun with flavor and presentation of healthful foods. Recently, T+T provided hors d'oeuvres for the album release party of His Own, a beautiful women's ministry. Below are some recipes that we served at the party! Enjoy!
Skewer sticks are an easy way to serve foods at parties and guests love them. We used bamboo skewersand long toothpicks here, which can be found at your local grocer or party store. Simply stack the ingredients on the skewer and you are good to go! Ingredients can be prepped a day ahead and these can be assembled several hours ahead. Here are three varieties to serve at your next get-together...
