I discovered this lovely starter at a wedding I attended. After sampling one, I decided I had to try duplicating the recipe at home. I think my version is a bit easier and faster to prepare, but just as elegant in appearance and just as crowd-pleasing.—Annie De La Hoz, Delta, Colorado

These bite-size meatballs ae a favorite of Anna Damon from Bozeman, Montana. You can substitute your favorite cheese for the cheddar or serve the appetizers with Dijon mustard or sweet-and-sour sauce instead of barbecue sauce.

Savory slices of this bread make a favorite Saturday night meal for my family. Just like pizza, it can be eaten as a fun finger food. Guests can't stop nibbling when I serve it at parties. Plus, it's good warm or cold.

Did you know that cheesecake could be savory instead of sweet? Tomato and green onions mixed with cream cheese is like an irresistible form of gazpacho. Served on lettuce, the BLT version is great on its own, but it's also a tasty appetizer when served with crackers. This is a flexible recipe, so use other cheese in place of the Gruyere, and add olives, crab meat, cooked mushrooms - whatever strikes your fancy. —Joni Hilton, Rocklin, California
