You mean we have to eat at the Bachelorette Party?!?

The Maid/Matron of Honor and the Bridesmaids are usually responsible for throwing a Bachelorette Party in honor of the Bride to Be.

There are a lot of different ways to celebrate and they usually depend on the age and personality of the bride. Some girls want to go all out and booze it up in the city while others would be much happier with a spa day with her favorite ladies.

For any party you're going to need some good food and we know you don't want to be ordinary. Here are some recipes from the Food Network that we think are just right.

Everyone will be so impressed when you pull out the Key Lime Tarts:

24 Key Lime Cooler cookies
8 ounces cream cheese, softened
1 egg
1/2 cup sugar
2 tablespoons lime juice, preferably Key lime
1 teaspoon lime zest
Fresh sweetened whipped cream
Mint leaves or lime zest, for garnish
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
Fill 2 (12-muffin) mini muffin tins with paper cups and spray cups with cooking spray. Place 1 Key Lime Cooler cookie in the bottom of each cup, flat side down.

Prepare filling. Beat together cream cheese, egg, sugar, lime juice, and zest until well mixed. Fill the cups to the top. Bake for 10 to 12 minutes. Remove tarts to cool. When completely cool, fit a star tip in a pastry bag and fill with the whipped cream. Pipe the whipped cream on top of the tarts. Garnish with tiny mint leaves or lime zest.
