Check out Appetizers You'll be Thankful For

My husband's Greek family call the appetizer course 'Meze' and it's almost as important as the main course (though you are usually full by the time that comes). This round up has been filled to the brim with tasty appetizers that will please the crowds and my husband's family....since I've been tasked with a fun appetizer or two this year. Which one do you think I should make?

Pull up a chair, pour yourself a cocktail, and let the appetizers and good conversation flow.
