15 Party Recipes to be “Known For”

15 party recipes for large crowds- easy to make dips and finger foods

You could name off member of my family and group of friends and just about every one of them has a party dish they are known for. Hayley is chicken salad sandwiches. My younger sister has an infamous bean dip.  My moms cream cheese bread is requested at just about every holiday party.

I’m still on the search for my dish. But I’m not complaining; I’m loving the process of testing out new recipes with every get together we attend or host. Here’s my top 15 recipes on my “to try” list for 2018!
