Actually just typed this up to give to someone.  I brought it to a party and like 5 people asked me how I made it.

Rotisserie Chicken, Bacon & Cheese Dip

Ingredients:
2 cups Sour Cream
2 cups Mayo
Splash of white vinegar (can use lemon juice, I don't like lemon juice so I use vinegar)
salt
pepper
1 chicken
Rotisserie seasoning
Splash of Worcester sauce
Bacon (Maybe 4~ strips)
4-6 celery branches depending on size
3-4~ cups shredded mild smoked cheese
optional:
Fresh herbs, chive/basil

This entire recipe is based on a pretty large serving like we had.  Halving or quartering is probably fine most of the time.  As is, this is probably a bit more than a quart.

Prepare the chicken:
We rotisserie it but roasting should be fine too.  For a quicker preparation a rotisserie chicken from Krogers should work alright.

Degut the chicken and trim skin to remove the flappy parts.  Place fingers under skin to loosen.  Take approximately 1/2 to 3/4 the bottle of rotisserie seasoning and put it in a bowl.  Rub it under the skin on the breast/thigh meat etc.  Since this will be going in the dip, you are trying to season it much stronger than you would if you were just eating it.  Pin skin back to its original placement with tooth picks so it stays in place during cooking.  Either roast or rotisserie it until 165~.  Let cool and carve.  Cut breast and dark meat into approximately 3/4 inch squares.  Pulse through food processor to lightly shred.  Set aside.

Small dice (or chip in food processor) celery.  Shred cheese (I use havarti or gooda, any mild cheese will do though.  I stay away from cheddar unless you are going for a strong flavored dip)
.  Cook and chop bacon.

In large bowl mix mayo, vinegar, sour cream, chicken, Worcester, cheese, bacon, celery, herbs (if using).  Mix with spoons until uniform.  Taste and add additional salt/pepper/rotisserie seasoning.

The basic foundation of it is 1:1 of sour cream & mayo with a bit of acid.  The rest you can customize.  With some acid it tends to taste too sour creamy.  Both the bacon and chicken add a lot of salt.  So depending how you handle those components more or less salt is needed.

Eat & Enjoy.

Bloody Marys on a Stick

1 quart boiling water
2 dozen cherry tomatoes
freshly ground pepper
celery salt
½ c vodka
¼ to ½ t horseradish
1 T Worcestershire sauce
Several dashes of Tabasco or favorite hot sauce
Squeeze of lemon juice

Slip skins of tomatoes by placing in boiling water for 30 seconds. Rinse the tomatoes under cool water in the sink, but don't cool them off with the water. The skins should slide off easily. Remove stem spot with a sharp knife. Place peeled tomatoes in a shallow bowl.

Sprinkle tomatoes with a dash of freshly ground black pepper and a generous sprinkling of celery salt. If you don't have celery salt, you can use kosher salt, but the flavor will be different. Mix horseradish, Worcestershire and Tabasco into vodka in a glass or measuring cup. Add a squeeze of lemon juice. Pour the mixture over the tomatoes. Allow the tomatoes to marinate for a couple of hours at room temperature. Turn them in the liquid a few times to make sure that they marinade evenly. Cover and transfer to the refrigerator to chill prior to serving. Serve with toothpicks.

My company is trying to have more "Company is Family Events", which is cool; we're doing monthly birthday parties, and catered lunches for special occasions, and sign ups as a company for various raise money runs/walks.

Well, they're going to have at the end of this month an afternoon July 4th picnic party at a park, a Friday afternoon where everyone can leave early for the picnic. Thing is, Friday's are always my early days, I already leave at 2 and don't really want to go. Does that make me a bad employee? I was thinking about making my cheesy hashbrown casserole that everyone up here loves and just have someone else take it over there and tell them I have something I have to do that afternoon....

Get some scallions

Get some cream cheese

Get some thin sliced ham, (cheap - Buddig, expensive - Prosciutto) cut pieces in half

Trim the roots of the bottom of the scallions

Slap a bit of cream cheese in the meat and roll the bottom of the scallion in it.

I made this for Kentucky Derby.  It was gone in 10 minutes and I'm pretty sure somebody licked the bowl.

6 slices bacon, cut into 1 inch pieces
8 ounces cream cheese, softened
1 cup finely shredded cheddar cheese
1 teaspoon Worcestershire
1/2 teaspoon horseradish
1 tablespoon mayonnaise
1/3 cup sour cream
2 green onions, diced

Cook bacon in a skillet over medium heat until browned. Transfer to a paper towel lined plate and set aside.

Throw cream cheese, cheddar cheese, Worcestershire, horseradish, mayonnaise and sour cream in a food processor. Process until smooth, about 30 seconds.

Put the mixture in a bowl, stir in the green onions and reserved bacon pieces. Cover and refrigerate for an hour to let flavors mingle.

Allow to come to room temperature before serving with crackers (Brown Rice Triscuits w/ Sea Salt and Black pepper FTW)

A recipe my grandma taught me, I bring it to pretty much any party we have to bring a side to.  Kind of an Italian mac and cheese.

Macaroni Cake

1 box each penne, spaghetti, and rotini
1-2 sticks of pepperoni, cut into 1/4 in. cubes (pretty much to taste)
8 large eggs
1.5 pounds shredded Parmesan cheese
black pepper to taste

Brown the pepperoni in a skillet to cook off some of the grease.  Cook pasta to al dente.  Preheat your oven to 375.  Mix eggs and cheese together in a bowl with the pepperoni.  Then stir in the pasta until well mixed.  Spray a 9x13 inch pan with cooking spray, then fill it with the pasta mixture, packing it densely.  Bake for 30-35 minutes or until the top is browned.  Slice into squares and serve.

Ever have Olivie (Russian Potato Salad)?

It's pretty much a staple at any family event. There are about a million ways to make it, but if I recall how wifey prefers to make it the ingredients are:

-potatoes
-sour cream
-mayo
-hard boiled eggs
-full-sour pickles (plus some of the juice from the container)
-canned peas
-bologna/ham/Докторская
-salt
(and some prefer to add some combination of carrots/scallion/red onion/dill)

I cut up some 1' cubes of chicken.  Marinate them in balsamic vinegar and garlic.  Fry completely in a pan with olive oil and chill.

Then cut up some cubes of Mozzarella.  And clip off several larger leaves of fresh basil.  Wash a few containers of grape tomatoes.

Get some smallish bamboo skewers and thread chicken-basil leaf-cheese-basil leaf-tomato and repeat for the rest of the skewer.  Arrange nicely on a platter.  You want to fold the larger basil leaves in half.

Easy, pretty, and everyone will pretty much eat them.

It's very similar, sadly, but kind of like a chicken bologna. Pronounced DOCtorskaya.

If they have premise salads ask them for oliviYEH.

An easy finger food I like to make is kind of like tapas.

Take 1 loaf of crusty bread, ciabatta or french works best, cut into thin slices. Then add a schmear of pesto, an piece of sun dried tomato, and a slice of a sharp cheese like parmesan. It withstands heat well, so it's great for summer, and you can make it 2 minutes or 2 days before an event. Easy, delicious, and very popular.

Tortellini pasta salad:

48 oz frozen cheese tortellini (WEGMANS 4EVAH)
8 oz can black olives, sliced
8-10 oz feta cheese, mashed
either a small package of sundried tomatoes, or a small package of cherry tomatoes, sliced (quantity to taste)

Good Seasons Italian dressing (the kind you mix yourself)

Cook the tortellini on the stove as per directions - basically enough to thaw it out and heat it up some, then drain and chill. Add the cheese, olives, tomatoes, stir well. Apply Italian dressing when you serve it, because otherwise it soaks into the pasta and it loses flavor.

Delish...

That hummus recipe is the best I've ever found.  prax jr. will eat an entire batch with a spoon if I let him.  One modification is I usually go heavy on the lemon juice, and then mince up some fresh mint right at the last minute.

Quick and easy: mozzarella, cherry tomatoes, and basil leaves. Cut mozzarella into pieces about as big as the tomatoes. Tear the basil into pieces about the same size. Spear one of each with a toothpick. Brush with olive oil and sprinkle with black pepper or thyme or parsley flakes if you like.
