These tangy cheese balls are guaranteed to spread cheer at your next gathering. The ingredients create a colorful presentation and a savory combination of flavors. As a grandmother who loves to cook, I send many pantry presents off to college.
To tell the truth, I can't recall where this recipe came from. It's been a regular in my holiday baking, though, for many years. Between Thanksgiving and New Year's, I hand these out to almost everybody—even the mailman's been known to find a batch in the mailbox!
I moved from a big city as a bride. My husband soon persuaded me to enter baked goods at our county fair—now, our son, 8, is my cookie tester, and our daughter, 6, is the egg beater.
Looking for an eye-catching appetizer to dress up a dinner party or fun fall gathering? They don't come much cuter than the fanciful hard-cooked egg "toadstools" pictured here.
Capped with cherry tomatoes, these tasty morsels always delight family and friends, says creator Sue Cravatta of Elmwood Park, Illinois.
"They couldn't be easier to make, and my kids get the biggest kick out of them. They gobble the toadstools up-and even eat the spinach 'grass' I display them on," she relates.
Folks will think you fussed over this pretty appetizer, but it took our Test Kitchen only minutes to top a round of smooth and creamy brie with warm sweet apricots. This is one easy appetizer certain to make any occasion “special.”
Plain microwave popcorn becomes irresistible when it's yummied up with molasses, peanut butter and nuts. “This awesome snack never lasts long around our house,” Jacque Castillo, Brookings, Oregon, notes.
