Meet the Cook: This snack bread's very versatile - I've served it with spaghetti, as an appetizer and as a main dish. Because it stays so moist, I often bake it a day before. I have been an avid cook ever since my husband and I were married...that was 29 years ago. We have two children - a son 22 and a daughter 19.

Whether you craft it for a patriotic picnic or an everyday summer celebration, this colorful table topper will appetizingly round out the occasion. People positively eat it up! Our crafty kitchen experts first came up with the idea after spotting a plain foam wreath form. Rather than embellish it with dried flowers or ribbons, they decided to try fresh fruit instead. The process turned out to be so simple and so fast that they had time to add a savory centerpiece center—which doubles as a creamy dipping sauce. The final touch is a cinch, too. You simply top the sauce with strawberry stars you slice using mini cookie cutters.
