I absolutely love entertaining for the Oscars! It’s a night to gather in your living room with friends and family for some good at-home entertaining, centered around the movies we loved throughout the year!

We teamed up with Food Should Taste Good to bring you some delicious Oscar appetizers, cocktails and party ideas!!

Food Should Taste Good chips are super yummy, but the best part is that they’re made with real ingredients, gluten-free, trans-fat-free and cholesterol-free!

For these appetizers, we went for a fresh and light seafood theme and all of the dishes pair perfectly wit chips!

Fish and Chips!

My favorite idea is the twist we created on “fish and chips”! Homemade, fried battered fish on top of a blue corn chip, with a homemade tartar sauce. It’s absolutely delicious and such a fun take on traditional fish and chips! Recipe below!
