We farm 2,000 acres and raise a few thousand chicken, so I'm often too busy to cook much in the summer. These appetizers are quick and easy, though, and perfect for hot days when you want to eat light. During the winter, when we have more time to entertain, they're also a great hit with guests.
Cooking is something I've always enjoyed...particularly when I'm doing it for people who enjoy eating! This dish is such a family favorite that I'll buy a ham sometimes just so I can make.
I'm a city bus driver who likes to swap recipes with passengers. My husband and I have two sons, 20 and 18.
