This appealing appetizer from Sue Huebner of Wausau, Wisconsin shapes up nicely for Valentine's Day—or any special holiday. "I cut the bread for my canapes into hearts, flowers and other seasonal symbols," she describes. "They're a big hit at parties. In fact, every time I serve them, I get requests for the recipe."—Sue Huebner, Wausau, Wisconsin
Friends and family will be so impressed at how pretty and tasty these appetizers are. The ham salad, pineapple spread and chive spread combination make a delicious filling!—Iola Egle, Bella Vista, Arkansas
When garlic is roasted, it becomes mild and soft enough to spread over bread or crackers. For additional herb flavor, place a sprig of fresh thyme over the cut surface of the garlic before roasting. Roasted garlic can also be used to flavor cream of potato soup. Simply roast as directed. When cool, squeeze the garlic from the skin into the soup and puree the entire mixture. One whole head or bulb of garlic will flavor 6 to 8 quarts of soup.
I love to cook and experiment with new recipes. When I first made this breakfast pizza, my husband proclaimed it a definite keeper! This dish doesn't use traditional breakfast ingredients, but it's a surefire hit every time I serve it. —Kim Martin, Port Republic, Maryland
