Rich, smooth Brie cheese accented with caramelized onions is reminiscent of fondue. With a red and green tomato and herb topping, it's quite a showpiece on a holiday table.

I've taken this creamy spread to many holiday gatherings and parties- and there's never any left to bring home! Well-seasoned with a blend of herb flavors, this cheesy treat tastes great on slices of French bread, too.

Here's a deliciously different sandwich. It's yummy warm from the oven or off the grill at a cookout. The cheesy filling is complemented by a mix of garden-fresh ingredients and crusty bread. I usually serve it with a salad and onion rings.

For a tasty alternative to plain old potato chips, try the crunchy snack Lee Denney of Cushing, Oklahoma created from pasta. "The spices and cheese that coat the fried noodles give them a terrific flavor," she assures. "We love to eat them with soup, sandwiches or in between meals."

These appetizers have such broad appeal. I prepare them often for holiday gatherings, weddings and family reunions. They're convenient to serve at parties since the sauce can be made ahead, then just reheated with the franks before serving. —Lucille Howell, Portland, Oregon

Cooking is something I've always enjoyed...particularly when I'm doing it for people who enjoy eating! This dish is such a family favorite that I'll buy a ham sometimes just so I can make. I'm a city bus driver who likes to swap recipes with passengers. My husband and I have two sons, 20 and 18.

With or without the dipping sauce, this crunchy crowd-pleaser is tasty. The cranberry-Dijon sauce gives the fun snack plenty of tang.—Donna-Marie Ryan, Topsfield, MA

Fresh Zesty Salsa

The addition of olives makes this salsa a little different from other varieties. You can seed the jalapeno peppers if desired. But if you family likes salsa with some "heat", leave them in.—Sharon Lucas, Raymore, Missouri

Growing up in a small coastal town on the Washington Plate Peninsula, my daily staples were fish and shellfish. I'm always asked to bring this dip to family events. It's also great the next day on grilled sourdough bread with olives and tomatoes.—Susan Pettett, Vancouver, Washington
