Diploma Appetizers

After studying this delightful recipe Joanne Shew Chuck sent from St. Benedict, Saskatchewan, our kitchen staff unrolled a crafty way to display her appetizers—by tying the tidbits with green onion tops to resemble diplomas. Her response? "What a neat idea!" Adds Joanne, "We use these appetizers for all sorts of occasions. In fact, I regularly freeze them so I'm always prepared...even if unexpected guest drop in."—Pasty Dean, Sealy, Texas

Granola's a popular treat with children, and this one couldn't be easier to prepare. I flavor it with lots of tasty good-for-you ingredients.

This savory snack shapes up in mere minutes...and disappears just as quickly, assures Sharon Skildum of Maple Grove, Minnesota. "My family agrees that you can't eat just one," she grins. "That's okay, though—making more is just a matter of coating purchased pretzels with spices. Our children are always happy to help!"—Sharon Skildum, Maple Grove, Minnesota

Meet the Cook: Generally, I serve this with steaks and salads. The loaf's so quick to make, in fact, I often grill two of them. I have always loved to bake...especially anything chocolate! My husband and our children - a boy 12 and a girl 9 - are eager taste-testers for me. Plus I'm a cook for our local schools. -Debbi Baker, Green Springs, Ohio

Fried Garlic Toast

I serve this fast toast with many meals and as a snack. For a change, sprinkle on onion powder instead of the garlic powder or use a favorite herb seasoning.—Leah Carrell, Quitman, Texas

Meet the Cook: Our brood - five children from 16 to 23 - says it's not Christmas here until I make this. I usually double the recipe so I can put some in tins or baskets for hostess gifts when we're invited out. As long as it's kept in a dry place, Popcorn Nut Crunch will last - up to 3 weeks if you seal it in a tin. -Midge Stolte, Blackfalds, Alberta

Cheesy Artichoke Dip

"I first tasted this warm, well-flavored dip at our daughter's house—and immediately asked for the recipe," relates Ramona Larson, a homemaker from Andover, Minnesota. Since then, she's served it herself at family gatherings. "Everyone who tries it comes back for more," she reports. If you'd like, you can place the dip in a hollowed-out-artichoke, just like our kitchen crafters did. Or keep it in the dish you bake it in—either way, it'll heat up any setting.
