Great food is essential to a successful party, and in Party Snacks!: 50 Simple, Stylish Recipes to Make You a Popular Party Host, A.J. Rathbun offers up a collection of delectable new recipes that will take any party to the next level.

With 50 baked, stuffed, skewered, dipped, and spreadable snacks to choose from, presented with enticing full-color photographs, party hosts will never again have to resort to a bag of potato chips and a tub of store-bought dip. Instead, they can whip up unexpected delights including White Bean and Rosemary Pâté, Grilled Honey Teriyaki Chicken, Edamame with Ginger Salt, Monterey Cremini Quesadillas, and Verdura Baguette Bites.

Or, if dip is a party staple that guests just can't go without, there's even a recipe for homemade Classic French Onion Dip that is sure to put pre-made versions to shame. Best of all, the recipes are quick and simple to make—the only worry will be keeping the snack table stocked once guests get a taste of these excellent recipes!
