Our family takes many adventurous hikes in the Selquirk mountain range surrounding our summer lake cabin. These nuts never tasted better than when we enjoyed them together at the peak of an amazing hike. Almonds are extremely nutritious, and, when dressed up with a wonderful blend of spices, they go from ordinary to extra-ordinary! —Gina Myers, Spokane, Washington
My son, Tyler, loves these and even asked me to make them for his school party instead of cupcakes! Now his classmates love them, too, and I make them for every party. To keep it easy, I usually get the veggies from the grocery store's salad bar. —Beverly M. Jones, Cambridge, Maryland
Most of my family members don't eat meat, so I've made these appetizers for special occasions ever since a friend shared them with me. The moist bites and tangy sauce are always well received. --Bonnie Young of Desert Hot Springs, California.
"Our family can't get enough of this light cinnamon-sweet popcorn," offers Naomi Yoder of Leesburg, Indiana. The baked kernels are wonderfully crunchy and coated just right. Try mixing some up to have on hand as an anytime nibble.
Garden-fresh zucchini and cherry tomatoes are tastefully combined in these colorful appetizers. Writes Amy Frombach of Bradford, Pennsylvania, "Folks tend to hang around the appetizer tray whenever I serve these pretty party bites."
My sister-in-law shared this creamy dip with me, and my family loves it. I serve it whenever we get together. It's a great way to get everyone to eat their vegetables, too. —Judy Bartnik of Wausau, Wisconsin
