A homeless puppy spreads the true meaning of Christmas in a small town. Cuddle with your children while reading Nicholas Edwards's tale Santa Paws. These bone-shaped crackers are a fantastic treat to go with this book.—
My Aunt Mary started making this recipe years ago, and each time we visited her she would have a batch ready for us. The use of cayenne adds an unexpected zing to the savory combo of rosemary and walnuts. When you need a good house-warming or hostess gift, double the batch and save one for yourself. —Renee Ciancio, New Bern, North Carolina
Simple to make and fun to eat, these crispy "crackers" are a nice change from chips. They make a great side to soup or salad, but they also make a flavorful party snack. —Kristin Arnett, Elkhorn, Wisconsin
I've been making this candy for the past few years and serving it at Teacher Appreciation lunches and bake sales. It's special because it never fails to win praise from everyone who tries it. For bake sales, I break the candy up and package it in little cellophane bags from the craft store.—Anna Ginsberg, Austin, Texas
I came up with this fun, deliciously different seasoned popcorn to provide a snack for my extended family of high school actors when I was teaching drama. It's inexpensive and easy—a great way to take the edge off hearty appetites. This is a savory, irresistible snack.—Patsie Ronk, Galveston, Indiana
"For munching anytime, this savory snack is a fun alternative to popcorn with lots of salt and butter," relates Mildred Davis from Hagerstown, Maryland. "It gets nice zip from a coating of chili powder, garlic powder and Parmesan cheese."
