I had a baby boy and for my baby shower, my hostess made a blue punch. She used BLUE Hawaiian punch, pineapple sherbet and sprite. It was GREAT!!

Here is a real winner for a great dessert when you don't have a lot of time. My secret is the Ghirardelli Double Chocolate Brownie Mix.

I make it a day or two before the shower, and warm it up a little before serving. I get requests for the recipe all the time. People are shocked that it is just a mix you can buy at the store!!

This is a very easy recipe I have been making for years now. I use it at every baby shower or neighborhood party I can. It is always gone very quickly.

You will need:

Sliced Ham
1 jar of pickle spears
whipped topping

Start by laying a slice of ham out. Spread a thin layer of cream cheese on the ham. Place 1 pickle spear on the edge of the ham and roll lengthwise. Slice.

It sounds interesting but it is very yummy!

NOTE: We have a pickle roll up recipe over on our baby shower appetizers page.

This is a classic recipe. I use the Corn Chex Mix at all the functions I attend, including baby showers. It is really quick to make and so-o yummy!

1/2 box of Rice Chex
1/2 box of Golden Grahams
3 cups of coconut
2 1/2-3 cups of almonds or honey roasted nuts
2 cups of Karo light syrup
2 1/2 cubes of butter
2 cups sugar

Mix Karo, sugar and butter in a pan. Bring to a boil and boil for 2 minutes. Pour over cereal and mix.

And....that's it!

Just mix the above 2 ingredients and you have an amazingly quick and amazingly fun fruit dip that will have people dipping over and over again!

1 lb. of Ground Beef or Turkey
1 Small Bell Pepper
1 Small Onion
(Or you can buy the frozen mixed version.)
1 Jar Tostitos Mild Monterey Jack Salsa Con Queso
1 Jar Tostitos Mild Salsa Con Queso

Brown ground beef or turkey along with bell pepper and onion...Drain. Add a generous amount of Mild Monterey Jack Salsa Con Queso. Add a generous amount of Mild Salsa Con Queso.

*Mixture does not have to be soupy...works better when it is not!* Mix together in skillet or in a crock pot...

Serve with Tostitos scoops or Tortilla chips. (Tostitos Lime Tortilla chips tastes great with this!) This recipe is great for any type of party or gathering.

White or Red potatoes (I prefer red potatoes)
Hidden Valley Ranch Salad Dressing
Shredded Cheese of choice
Real Bacon Bits or Pieces

This is a recipe that you may have to play around with to know how much you will really need of each item. For large gatherings you may want to use a 5 or 10 lb. bag of potatoes.

Slice Potatoes and boil with salt, until tender but remains firm. Drain and rinse.

In a shallow baking pan (I prefer using aluminum pans) layer in this order:

Ranch Salad Dressing
Bacon bits
Repeat the layers...
Number of layers depends on how deep the dish is.

Bake @ 375 degrees for 15-20 minutes; or until cheese is nicely melted.
