These tasty baked cheddar cheese and olive balls are delicious and the recipe is quick and easy! This recipe is courtesy of my mother-in-law, with a little tweak from me with the addition of grated parmesan cheese. I have no idea where she got it and she doesn't remember, but she has been...

Turmeric and Tarragon Seasoned Deviled Eggs
My husband likes his boiled eggs soft-to-medium boiled. He eats a couple a day as an afternoon snack, so I make them in batches of 6 eggs at a time every few days. About 1 out of 7 times I overcook them, LOL. Today was one of those days. I ate...
Puff Pastries stuffed with kidney and onion.
Kidneys are very healthy organs, if obtained from pastured animals. They are high in Vitamin A (benefits for vision), as well as in iron, and also in most of the B vitamins. It is possible to overdose on Vitamin A, but for most people eating...
A couple important things – not to overcook the scallops OR to undercook the puff pastry. Striking the balance meant watching the oven often. There was more of a concern making the mini-pie than the mini-muffins – because in the latter case you do want to make sure that the scallops and...

I wanted to make and serve these Puff Pastry Asparagus bundles with crustless quiche over the holiday weekend, but time got away from me.
Question... I don't like overcooked vegetables, but wondered if the asparagus should be (at...
When I'm at home and I have some guests I just bring out some chips and a dip I made overnight. Sometimes I make cucumber sandwiches when bread is available. I know some of these sound like snacks but add something fresh like parsley or basil that you have in the garden. Add spice to spice old...
What kind of appetizers will you be serving this holiday season. I am looking for some new ideas and would like to try some recipes from around the world. I am open to anything normal or geared toward vegetarian or gluten free.
My fiancee and I will get married soon, but we are just planning a small wedding. So, we will not go with traditional reception and just have cocktails with the guests instead. I was wondering if any of you can share recipes for easy and light appetizers/sandwiches. Thanks in advance!
Every year, particularly around the time of the Super Bowl, I start seeing tons of appetizer recipes popping up. But the thing that bothers me about the majority of them is that they are all pretty much some variation on the same thing. It's some concoction with cheese, ranch, mayo and sour...
If you was to bring an appetizer tray to a relaxed occasion, what would you have on your try? I thought about doing deep fried veggies--cauliflour, mushrooms, broccoli. What other suggestions or ideas are out there?
