Easy Apps: Stuff on a Stick

 

You know those fun moments when your boyfriend/girlfriend/life partner/whatever invites people over for a last minute get-together and is hoping you could just “whip something up?” Or when your friend who just broke up with her latest the one says she’s coming over with vodka and tears and you need something more than Pringles to soak up her emotions? These are times that call for easy appetizers that are not pizza rolls. These are the times that call for putting stuff on a stick. Just don't let this happen.
