Let’s Be Friends Blog Hop is Now Live! Come join!

A blog hop is a set time frame for current or aspiring bloggers to find new blogs and quality content. It is a great way to make new friends and find inspiration! It is also a fabulous way to promote your own blog and posts.

Dear Friends,
What a day to celebrate! This is the 202th week of the Let’s Be Friends blog hop! Thanks for joining us on this special day. Chelsee and Tiffany are extremely delighted to see the way this hop has grown and love to see your faces each week!

Join us every Tuesday at 7am (MST). This blog hop focuses on content. LINK UP YOUR FAVORITE POST from last week in this fun content-sharing blog hop! I love the idea of blog hopping, but I love the idea of reading posts and quality content on new blogs I’ve never been to even more. Instead of simply linking up your blog button, you are now able to link up your favorite post you recently wrote. Have a delicious recipe to share, DIY tutorial, or heartfelt post? Share it with us! All hosts and co-hosts put up some unique and fun content from the past week. Make sure to check them out. P.S.- you may still link up your blog button and blog name, but it is encouraged to link up your favorite post instead. You will get more page views and interest if you do so! Some of the most successful blog hops I have participate in focus on content rather than just exchanging follows. You never know who will become a loyal follower or pin that delicious new recipe you posted!
The BEST part of this blog hop? Each week there will be a WINNER! That’s right, each week we will choose one lucky blog to feature from the previous week’s hop. This hop receives thousands of page views every week, so your blog will have the chance to be center stage for free. You must follow all the hosts in order to win. Only those who link up a specific post are eligible to be featured! *You must follow all the hosts and co-hosts in order to win.

Go-To Holiday Appetizers

The holidays are such a busy time of year! Between ugly sweater parties and holiday events, I think everyone is looking for easy ways to entertain. I’ve attended several parties and hosted a couple, and needed to come up with simple and fun party appetizers. This year I made an easy Christmas Tree Guacamole Appetizer that was a huge hit, along with some Pita Tree appetizers with Feta Cucumber Dip and veggies. These make delicious and easy snacks for adults and kids!

I made the Guacamole Trees for a holiday party my friend and I hosted. They were so good that as I was making them my daughter (who is four) and I consumed enough for lunch. Adults and kids loved these little appetizers, which consisted of minimal prep and about five minutes of work. I simply diced fresh tomatoes and shredded sharp cheddar cheese. The crackers were lavash crackers from Sprouts. Perfect for guacamole as they are crispy and did not get soggy. I then spread a thin layer of GoodFoods Chunky Guacamole on each cracker and sprinkled cheese or tomatoes on top! So Good!

My favorite combo was the guacamole and cheese. I could eat a million of these! Having a “savory” snack at holiday parties is great since so much of the food consists of sweets around this time of year. Plus, there is some nutritional value to these awesome little tree appetizers!

The second appetizer that is super easy and yummy are little tree pitas. I simply cut up the pita bread into triangles and spread the GoodFoods Feta Cucumber Dip on top. I diced some fresh red bell peppers and sprinkled on top. The flavor combo was simple and amazing! These appetizers went super fast, and I was amazed how many people commented how delicious they were!

I found GoodFoods Chunky Guacamole and Feta Cucumber Dip at my local store Sprouts. We shop at Sprouts all the time and love all of the healthier options! I also grabbed the other items needed to make my appetizers, as well as some gifts for the hosts of the parties we were attending!
