We all love tips to make our life just a little bit more manageable. As your Dallas Household Tips Examiner I search for tips for myself and pass them along to my readers.

The beginning of a new year always sparks new resolutions and for many that includes diets. By this time next week we will be already on day 3 of a brand new year. Many of us will be attending parties, or some of will even be entertaining in our own homes for New Year's Eve, for one last time before we dive into our "healthy eating" for the new year.

Make your guest think you spent hours on these very simple and tasty snacks that you can throw together at the last min!
