  • So -- how's that Thanksgiving planning goin' for ya? Let us help get some easy apps rolling!

    Planning an entire Thanksgiving meal is no easy job. We get that. So we're here with a bunch of awesome apps to keep your guests busy (at least their mouths!) while you polish up the rest of the dinner.

    Here are some of our faves -- easy and delish.

    1. Tomato-Pesto Appetizers (featured)

    These easy apps call for just some biscuit dough, tomatoes, pesto and cheese. What a combo -- yum and easy!

    2.Portabella and Brie Appetizer Pizza

    This crazy easy app doesn’t require many ingredients and will only take a few minutes of your time. And get this...you can substitute other cheeses or veggies to customize it to your guests' tastes. Versatile!

    3. Bruschetta

    Another impossibly simple option is this bruschetta recipe, which is really just chopped tomatoes, basil and olive oil on little slices of toast. The topping and toasted baguette slices can be made separately ahead of time and assembled quickly before your guests arrive.

    4. Mini Crescent Dogs

    One of our all-time faves -- Mini Crescent Dogs are easy and will be gobbled up in no time.

    5. Baked Spinach Artichoke Dip

    Always a fave on restaurant appetizer menus, hot spinach artichoke dip looks complex and tastes upscale. Nobody will guess it takes only 10 minutes to toss this dish together, plus a bit more time in the oven. Easy prep, easy impress!
