When you say "holiday tradition" around our house, this appetizer comes to mind immediately. Every winter, I make lots of cheese logs and freeze them for when I'm expecting company or need to take food to someone's home. The blend of smoked oysters, chili powder, nuts and cream cheese tastes good-even people who don't like oysters may enjoy this interesting appetizer.

These peppers are so addictive that if I want any for myself, I either need to make a double batch or hide some. The jalapenos are not that spicy after they are baked (I take out the seeds and white membrane), but have a wonderful flavor. —Linda Foreman, Locust Grove, Oklahoma

I have been making this recipe ever since I can remember…and every time I have a party. It's so simple to fix, doesn't take a lot of ingredients or time, and is always a favorite with my guests. You can change it up for different crowds by varying the seasoning for a mild to extra-spicy kick. —Caren Adams, Fontana, California

My neighbor gave me a container of this zippy, tangy salsa one Christmas and I had to have the recipe. I fix it regularly for potlucks and get-togethers and never have leftover. I take copies of the recipe with me whenever I take the salsa. —Kathy Faris, Lytle, Texas
