Unlike true pancakes, "Cong You Bing" (or Chinese scallion pancakes) are made from a dough instead of a batter. The tasty appetizers are the perfect "sponge" for mopping up extra sauce and can be made ahead of time for convenience. Just wrap in foil and reheat in the oven. —Jenni Sharp, Milwaukee, WI
For fun appetizers that tide over even the hungriest of guests, try these mini sandwiches. My youngest daughter likes their small size and the tangy sweetness of the pineapple.—Maria Vasseur, Valencia, California
This is a great "light" appetizer that tastes wonderful, but will not make you feel like you've eaten a meal. They are easy to make and a joy to serve--try them at your next party! — Donna Bardocz, Howell, Michigan
I came up with this recipe by combining several artichoke dip recipes. Wonton cups add a fancy look that's perfect for special occasions. If you're serving a large crowd, you may want to double the recipe.

In Middletown, Delaware, Helen Gilden gives shrimp a taste of the Orient. Soy sauce and peanut butter are combine in a sauce that glazes the shrimp nicely as she grills them. "I like to serve these kabobs as an appetizer when I'm entertaining," Helen notes.
This recipe is truly a family favorite. My husband, Doug, makes them often for family meals and my sister serves them every Tuesday night at the restaurant she owns. Feel free to use for sausage if you and your family like food with a little more kick.
