    That loaded baked potato dip looks incredible although I probably wouldn’t use it as a dip… I’d just eat it by the spoonful.

    Britni @ Play. Party. Pin.

    Hey Maggie Mae
    We don’t usually do appetizers for Thanksgiving or Christmas, usually just set up deviled eggs and a relish tray on the serving table. But all of these look amazing. Maybe I’ll start a new Thanksgiving tradition. <3 Kim

      No appetizers?! My family love snacks, especially because we hang out all day but only have one big meal, so we put out a lot of apps to snack on the rest of the day.
