written by Winnie Wangui 23rd September 2015

Hosting a party comes with a lot of responsibility. There’s a lot to consider from food, drinks, entertainment, furniture arrangements and decorations if necessary. When hosting a party, everyone in attendance is there to have a good time and as the organizer, the burden of ensuring the party is great lies on you.

However, this does not mean that you should stress yourself out trying to do everything perfectly. For example if preparing food may be too daunting maybe because you have a big guest list, you can opt for bitings and snacks that will keep the guests somehow full as they enjoy their drinks.

If you are hosting a party soon, be it a birthday, farewell, anniversary or any other party, here are some bitings and snacks you can easily prepare at home that will get the guests excited and asking for more.

This is a hearty snack which can also serve as an appetizer. It is quick and easy to prepare and can be served warm or at room temperature. If you prefer to serve the sweet potato squares warm, you will need to prepare the mayonnaise first so that the squares don’t get cold while preparing the mayonnaise.

4. Curried Chicken Tea Sandwiches
