    One delicious and easy appetizer I love is:

    Stuff dates with goat cheese. You can also stuff an almond/crushed almonts in there too.
    Wrap with proscuitto or serrano ham (or even bacon) and secure with a toothpick.
    Broil in the oven, turning once, until the ham/bacon is cooked and the whole thing heated through.

    Really delicious! If you don't like goat cheese you can just wrap the date by itself, or use a fig.

    Default From Pampered Chef

    I make rosemary parmasean pinwheels (actually a recipie I got at one of those "Pampered chef" parties) and they are ALWAYS a hit. They really are delicious and are always the first thing to go at parties:

    Parmesan Rosemary Pinwheels

    1 can (8 ounces) Pillsbury Refrigerated Crescent Dinner Rolls
    1/2 cup regular cream cheese spread
    1/4 cup (1 ounce) grated fresh Parmesan cheese
    4 teaspoons snipped fresh rosemary or 1 teaspoon Pantry Rosemary Herb
    Seasoning Mix

    Preheat oven to 375F. Separate dough into four rectangles on smooth side of Large Grooved Cutting Board. Press seams to seal.

    Place cream cheese in Small Batter Bowl. Grate Parmesan cheese over batter bowl using Deluxe Cheese Grater. Snip rosemary using Kitchen Shears; add to cheese mixture. Mix well using Small Mix 'N Scraper(R). Using Small Spreader, spread each rectangle with about 2 tablespoons cheese mixture to within 1/4 inch of edges.

    Starting at short side, roll up each rectangle; pinch edges to seal. Cut each roll crosswise into six slices using Serrated Bread Knife for a total of 24 slices. Place slices, cut side down, on Large Round Stone. Bake 12-15 minutes or until golden brown. Remove from oven to Stackable Cooling Rack. Serve warm using Mini-Serving Spatula.

    Yield: 24 pinwheels

    This is super easy, but verrry yummy! I always get compliments on it when I make it.

    Smoked salmon dip
    8 ounces hot smoked (not lox) salmon
    2 8 ounce packages of cream cheese (I use light)
    sliced green onions - however much you feel like

    Mix everything together in the food processor and serve with melba toast, crackers, etc.

    This recipe is easy and super yummy! Sorry, I just do it by heart and so don't have any true measurements.

    Two or more cans of whole water chesnuts, drained
    One pound package of bacon, sliced in half.
    One package of light brown sugar

    Heat oven to broil. Wrap half slices of bacon around a water chesnut, secure with a toothpick. Place on baking sheet. Sprinkle brown sugar heavily over each 'nut. Broil till bacon is brown. (ten minutes or so?? I usually just peek in) Remove from baking sheet immediately to paper-towel lined platter or plate. Serve immediately.

    A bonus is that these smell absolutely HEAVENLY while cooking!!

    Default Crabbies

    I have no idea where the name came from since there is no crab meat in it, but it's yummy!

    Package of english muffins
    Jar of Old English Cheese
    Stick of butter
    Garlic powder (I use 2-4 garlic cloves, depending on size of clove)

    Preheat oven to broil. Have cheese and butter at room temp and mix. Add the garlic and mix well. Then, split your english muffins in half. Spread the cheese mixture on the english muffins. Broil until brown. Cut into quarters.

    There are never left overs with these! (and super easy!!)

    Default Recipes for Layer Dip

    My fiend is having her housewarming party next week and would love to have something called a layer dip it might even be called a 4 layer dip. She had it at someone house not so long ago and has tried many times to get ahold of the recipe and shes just having the hardest time.

    I know nothing about layers dips or any dips for that matter, so i figure I would try posting something here and see what i come up with for her.

    She mentioned something about it having refried beans, olives, sour cream and a few other things..

    She also said it was served with Tortilla chips.

    Have any idea how to make it??

    There are tons of ways to make this but this is how I do it.

    Mix one can of refried beans with a couple of tablespoons of taco seasoning and a 1/4 cup of salsa. Spread the bean mixture on a pyrex type casserole dish. Then layer sour cream and then shredded yellow cheese (I like to use the nacho kind). Then sprinkle sliced black olives, diced tomatoes, sliced green onions on top (maybe 1/4 cup of each). Thats all there is to it. It does not make very well ahead of time so make it right before your event.
