Recipe Spotlight

Meet the Cook: A friend gave me the recipe for this pate after she'd served it at a formal wedding reception. But I make it most often to spread on crackers at picnics, potlucks and other casual get-togethers. My family - my husband, son and I - live on a small acreage. We all enjoy gardening (I grow my own herbs and vegetables). Hunting for antiques is a frequent activity of ours, too! -Melissa Sullivan, Iuka, Kansas
