Most of my guests like to add that element of surprise to their visits and, although most people say that if people just drop by unannounced, it’s OK to offer just drinks, I kind of enjoy being a good host and preparing something to eat too. It doesn’t have to be a five-course meal, nobody expects that of course, but a little treat is always a good way to make the guests feel welcome. And here are some of my favorite recipes for quick but incredibly tasty treats:
1. Crackers and a Dip

I always keep some crackers or pretzels in the house and I’m sure most of the people do too. Now, if you have those along with a moderately stocked fridge you are practically covered because the dip is quite easy to scramble. I just mix some yoghurt and mayonnaise, add just a little bit of mustard and toss in some herbs. Fresh parsley is always a good option but if you don’t have it at hand, oregano will do just fine too. It only takes five minutes to make this dip and the result is just wow!
