“My sister-in-law gave me this great recipe, which includes two of my favorite ingredients—blue cheese and pears. Yum!” writes Kate Hilts of Grand Rapids, Michigan. TIP: “Instead of a loaf of French bread, I usually buy a baguette and cut it at an angle to give the slices a nice look,” Kate adds.
Chopped pastrami adds a tasty twist to this artichoke spread from Donna Plarman in Elgin, Illinois, but it’s the wonderful blend of flavors that’ll make you want to serve it often. “I’m a caterer,” shares Donna, “and this is an absolute hors d’oeuvre staple for many of my customers. It's also wonderful served warm.”
