Welcome to Bite Sized Kitchen!

The mission of Bite Sized Kitchen is to offer delicious finger food ideas along with some inspiration so you can entertain like a boss.
And if you're anything like me, you want anyone who comes into your home to leave thinking..."Wow, I really enjoyed myself".
And I believe a memorable hosting experience is surrounded by the best FOOD.
Food has always been a conversation starter and should be the main focus of every gathering. So here at Bite Sized Kitchen, you will find fun bite-sized recipes that are ideal for gatherings large and small.
Think, cocktail hour, in the comfort of your own home! 🙂

I'm Aleka. A wife, mother of two teacher and entertainer at heart.
I grew up spending a lot of time in the kitchen of my parents donut shop in New Jersey. At the time, my papu and yiayia had their own shop too. We were a donut family. Donut, donuts and more donuts...and I didn't even like them.
Then as I got older, I worked there to help my parents out. I started as a waitress and eventually became the chef and finally the manager. Over that time, I gained more than ten years experience which is what contributed to my love for the culinary world as well as hospitality.
I have a masters degree in education and currently teach middle school math full-time. I live in southern NJ with my husband Derek and our two crazy boys Calvin and Lucas.
I am also Greek and Yugoslavian so it's all about the food (and music) at our family gatherings! If you joined us on Easter, you would see my yiayia eating the eyeball of the goat we just roasted. 😆
Because the best conversations revolve around food, why not have a spread out the entire party where guests can pick and nibble the entire time! With a large appetizer spread including cute bite sized canapes laid out, both adults AND kids can come and go as they please. Best of all, your job as a host is to relax while your guests enjoy picking at the food all night long.
