Last Monday I asked you to help me plan a cocktail party for my super smart friends, Elena and Sean, by placing your best cocktail party recipes in the recipe database with the tag Cocktail Party Menu. I told you I needed the following:
- 4-5 hors d'oeuvre recipes
- the recipes had to be cold and hot
- two sweet treat options
- specialty cocktail
When I went to plan the menu I was super excited to see what you guys had come up with and was utterly and totally disappointed to find that nobody had left me any recipes!
