Eat This! Appetizers for Dummies



No actual cooking involved!

Lately, I’ve been trying to learn how to cook more things. But cooking is hard! So fuck cooking. Make cold food!

If you’re going to a potluck or you’re hosting some sort of gathering in your nest, you should totally get with these super easy little hors d’oeuvres. I don’t know if that’s the right term for these but, in any case, they make awesome snacks! I spent less than 15 bucks for all the ingredients and you only need a bit of each ingredient to make these. I’m not sure what to call them and I don’t know if this recipe already exists somewhere (I got it from my old roommate), but essentially they’re bite-size baguette slices topped with cream cheese, roasted red peppers and capers.


  • roasted garlic cream cheese (or just regular cream cheese, whatever)
  • roasted red peppers (in a jar… depending on the size of them and how many snacks you want to make, you should only need a few peppers)
  • some sort of french baguette
  • capers (these also come in a jar and you can probably find them for cheap)


  • Slice the baguette into pieces about 1/2 inch thick.
  • Spread some cream cheese on each one.
  • Take some roasted red peppers out of the jar and cut them into small strips.
  • Put the peppers strips on top of each piece of the baguette.
  • Put 4 or 5 capers on top of the pepper strips on each piece of the baguette.
  • And done!

Literally the easiest and most delicious snacks ever. Plus they’re colourful and pleasant to look at!
