Buffalo Ranch Deviled Eggs

Add spice to this party staple with your favorite buffalo or hot sauce, plus ranch dressing. This recipe, from SheSpeaks member Freesocial2011, is a great appetizer or party side. Serve them with your buffalo wings, or dress them to taste more like them, by sprinkling celery chunks, carrot bits, and blue cheese on top.

Hoagie Spread

Get the taste of a classic hoagie without having to order the 6-foot sandwich. Thanks to this recipe from 6grands, this spread is a fun way to make your guests happy. Just dice the meat and cheese, and then mix it with mayo and seasonings. Voila! Delicious!

Mac& Cheese Bites

This is the ultimate party food. Kids will think they are made for them, but adults will love them just as much. Try this recipe from trecib that turns mac & cheese into a finger food.

Southwest Salsa

This next dish can be served many different ways. Put it out on its own as a bean salad, with chips as a dip, or on top of burgers as a salsa. We love that you can add or remove ingredients, based on your own taste. Plus, it can be left at room temperature and it won't spoil in the heat. Get the recipe from baseballgal here.

Orzo Salad

This perfect potluck salad is made from orzo, fresh veggies and feta. If you want, add a protein to make it a more hardier side, or even serve it as a main dish option. Thanks go to shaktimom for this versatile recipe. It's simple to make, and you can vary the ingredients to your liking. 

Smoky Roasted Chickpeas

If you want something simple that looks special, try these roasted chickpeas. They'll be hard to resist. The recipe by Jwyatt2328 uses smoked paprika, but feel free to add or mix different spices like cinnamon, cumin or curry. Even better - bring a few different versions, and see which one the crowd likes best.
