This is another variation of my sister Bethann’s Vidalia Onion Dip recipe that Heidi and I have been making for many years. For this recipe I’ve sautéed the sweet onions about twenty minutes to caramelize them – adding a sweet depth to the dip. My favorite crackers to spread this delicious dip on are Breton Crackers…ENJOY! Continue reading
Who said tasty can’t be healthy! These little veggie bites really pack a flavor punch along with a fiber punch. Using Lima beans as the base, I pureed them up to make a creamy sweet spread. Add some roasted tomatoes and a sprinkle of cheese and you have the makings of a very good and healthy appetizer. Put a little hard boiled chopped up eggs, and this would also make a great breakfast.

I absolutely love chicken livers. On my first date with my excellent Husband we discovered we both love them. I’ve been making pâté for years for Christmas, now I make it several times a year for my baby and me. I think I’ve finally perfected it. Continue reading

I love the Super Bowl and everybody knows it’s not just the most exciting game of the year, it’s the #1 junk food day of the year! Well it can taste like it’s bad for you and still be a healthy snack. These little bites of chicken wrapped in turkey bacon are just the ticket. I’ve paired them with an apricot jelly barbecue. These little gems are sure to please the big game eaters as well as the calorie conscious, (I used chicken thighs, but the breast meat would make it even lighter) … But just to give you more ideas to go with, Linda and I added some other great appetizer ideas with links at the bottom of the page.
Check them out! Continue reading
I don’t know where the original recipe came from, but Heidi shared this recipe years ago with the family and we’ve all been making these delicious Crab Muffins as appetizers ever since. They’ve become a true classic! Hope you’re able to give them a try…the upcoming Superbowl 50 on Sunday, February 7th may be just the day to make ’em…they’re not something you want to have if you’re on a diet – but are definitely decadently delicious and so easy to make… Continue reading
