msmofet, do those have Parmesan cheese mixed into the cream cheese? Your photo reminded me of a cheese ball I used to make decades ago that was really good. Off the top of my head, it was Parma cheese and chopped, stuffed green olives mixed with the cream cheese (maybe other things too? Don't remember..). After you formed the cheese mixture into a ball, it was rolled in finely chopped nuts - walnut, I think. I loved that combination so much.

Sorry to be so store bought, but a major chain store supermarket stocks a simple crab-cheese dip that's kind of pinkish orange in color. My brother always buys some and serves it at his x-mas party. It's delicious. I forget what kind of cracker he serves it on.

I wouldn't even begin to know how to concoct such an appetizer as that on my own, should they no longer stock it. I'd have to start with fresh or artificial crab meat (as a convenience).

If I can make it to Costco tomorrow after I get another ultrasound of my knee in the morning, I will be making a family favourite, Cheese straws. It is basically just a pastry with old cheddar in it and a little cayenne to give it a "bite". They are tedious to make but well worth it.

I will be sending them with TB for his work part on Thursday and giving some to Kay for the kids. I will also be packing them up for presents for our two pastors and some close friends.

I can post the recipe if anyone is interested. It is not a family secret because my Mom had it published in a Ladies' Auxiliary cookbook in the 50's!

Those are wonderful, we used to make them in rolls, similar to icebox cookies, so you could refrigerate them and slice a roll to bake as needed.

Try lightly dusting a few with powdered sugar, the combination of cheese, cayenne and a little sweet is fantastic!

I really like the idea of making them in rolls and slicing them. Cutting them into straws can be really time consuming when you are making several batches.

I think I will pass on the sugar idea though - one of the reasons I am making them is I am trying to stay away from too much sugar. I am sure it is great though!

Appetizers for the Holiday Season What are you thinking of doing? [ATTACH]22288[/ATTACH] I made these for a Summer Bar-B-Que, Teriyaki Chicken Skewers just couldn’t be easier. (well it can, and I figured it out) Take boneless-skinless Chicken thigh meat, Cut into 1 ½ - 2 inch strips Marinade overnight (8-12 hours) in Your favorite bottled Teriyaki sauce (or homemade, I went easy) I used [URL="http://www.amazon.com/Mr-Yoshidas-Original-Marinade-Grilling/dp/B00286BJ90"]Mr. Yoshida’s ® Original Marinade & Cooking Sauce [/URL] Then, find some 6 inch (or cut the longer ones with kitchen shears) Broil or grill the chicken strips; once cooked through, Set aside on a plate, covered with tin foil until you’re party is about to start Slice each strip into about 1 inch pieces thread 3-4 chunks of chicken onto each skewer, Arrange attractively on a platter and serve (I made the mistake of trying to grill the meat on the skewers, they burned even though I soaked them in water) Those apps will be gone in now time, be sure to make more than you think you should DH and I are hosting a Christmas Open House later in the month, And this is one dish that I will be making, it’s wonderful, simple, pretty and well received by your guests 3 stars 1 reviews
