I just found a recipe I have used for years. Angel food cupcakes. They are easy, just use your favorite angel food cake recipe or mix. You can fill them with pudding or jelly. Top with one container Lite cool whip, mixed with one pack instant vanilla pudding. Mix well, this is a yummy "frosting". Wonderful individual portions.
I have a friend that is making a 7 layer taco dip for hers this month. When I have a birthday I always make fruit kabobs and they always go the quickest. What about tortilla pinwheels. You can make them as simple or difficult as you want. Turkey and spinach with swiss cheese chopped celery and carrot ham and cheese salsa and cheese with olives and all of them use a base of fat free cream cheese and powdered uncle dans dressing mix with a bit of fat free sour cream. If that sounds good I can give you complete directions, just let me know.
I make garlic toast using WeightWatchers whole wheat pita pockets, spray butter, and garlic salt (you can use powder instead). I separate the pockets into halves, spray with the butter, sprinkle salt and toast them. They're delicious!
Snacks...how about microwave popcorn or pretzels. Another good sweet snack food is cereal.
Shrimp cocktail is always a good low-fat item.
For dessert, you can always do fat free Cool Whip with strawberries & blueberries. Another oldie but goodie from WW is low fat graham crackers (even chocolate ones). Spread FF Cool Whip in between to crackers to make a sandwich and freeze.

Make your own sliders using very lean ground beef or ground turkey breast. As for the buns, I use the brown and serve dinner roll. When they are done baking, I cut them open and pinch out some of the top and bottom, to reduce the calories. For the meat press it into a large cookie sheet, sprinkle with salt, pepper, and minced onion. Bake at 400 until brown it usually only takes about 25 minutes maybe less. Then you cut them to fit the brown and serves and dress them as you like. You can also roast veggies that are cut into decent size pieces. They are both easy and great starters. For deserts I would do individual cupcake size Boston Cream Pies.

Any and all help will be greatly appreciated!
