These are all 5-star recipes - ENJOY!

Jet Swirl Pizza Appetizers

1 (10 ounce) can refrigerated pizza crust dough
1/4 pound Genoa salami, thinly sliced
1/4 pound pepperoni sausage, sliced
1/4 pound provolone cheese, sliced
1/2 cup shredded mozzarella cheese

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Lightly grease a large baking sheet.
Roll pizza crust dough into an approximately 10x14 inch rectangle on the baking sheet. Layer with Genoa salami, pepperoni and provolone cheese. Sprinkle with mozzarella cheese to within 1/2 inch from edges of the dough. Roll jelly roll style. Seal the edge with a fork.


Bake in the preheated oven 25 minutes, or until golden brown. Slice into 1 inch pieces to serve.

Garlicky Appetizer Shrimp Scampi

6 tablespoons unsalted butter, softened
1/4 cup olive oil
1 tablespoon minced garlic
1 tablespoon minced shallots
2 tablespoons minced fresh chives
salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste
1/2 teaspoon paprika
2 pounds large shrimp - peeled and deveined

Preheat grill for high heat.
In a large bowl, mix together softened butter, olive oil, garlic, shallots, chives, salt, pepper, and paprika; add the shrimp, and toss to coat.
Lightly oil grill grate. Cook the shrimp as close to the flame as possible for 2 to 3 minutes per side, or until opaque.

Brie Cheese Appetizer

1 (8 ounce) wheel Brie cheese
3 tablespoons apricot preserves
1/2 (17.5 ounce) package frozen puff pastry, thawed
1 egg white

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).


Lightly grease a cookie sheet.
Slice one wheel of Brie cheese in half so you have 2 circles of cheese. Spread apricot or peach preserves on (the cut side) half of one circle of brie. Make sandwich out of the two halves of Brie, so that the preserves are in the center of both halves. Wrap the entire wheel of Brie with one sheet of puffed pastry and flip the entire concoction onto the prepared cooking sheet so the seam is on bottom. Brush the puffed pastry with the egg white.
Bake for 30 minutes, or until the pastry in golden brown. Serve immediately.

Quick and Easy Taco Dip

3/4 teaspoon taco seasoning mix
1/3 cup salsa

Here are a couple of our family favorites...

Cheese Ball "in Crust"
Make or buy an 8 oz. cheese ball
I have just fixed them with a large package of cream cheese and added a couple of tablespoons of raw onion and a couple of tablespoons of dry ranch dressing mix


1 tube of cressant rolls, unrolled and the seams pressed together.

completely cover the cheese ball and seal edges with the cressant roll dough and remove any excess. You can use scraps to make leaves, etc. to decorate top.

Gently brush on a wash made of an egg with a teaspoon of water whisked in.

Bake at 350 till the outside is nice and golden brown and shiny. Serve warm with crackers.

1 lb chicken livers
small can of water chestnuts
1/2 to 1 lb bacon

1/2 c soy sauce (I use reduced sodium)
1 tsp ground ginger
2-3 cloves garlic, crushed

Slightly cook chicken livers so that they can be easily handled. Wrap chicken livers around water chestnut, and wrap with 1/2 strip of bacon and secure with a toothpick. Continue until all liver is used up and place in shallow dish in a single layer. Mix marinade and pour over Rumaki. Marinate NO MORE than 1/2 hour (livers tend to break down after that) in refrigerator. Broil until bacon is crisp and serve hot.


Be very careful when using liver that everything, including hands, is very clean before handling and especially after handling. If you have any leftovers, it is probably not a good idea to keep them too long.

2 tortillas
1-2 precooked sliced chicken breasts
shredded cheese (mexican blend) to taste
black olives (about 15 sliced)
1 diced red pepper
1 diced green pepper
Adobo season to taste

Heat oven to 350 or heat a large skillet and drizzle with about 2 teaspoons olive oil. Place one tortilla as base, add a layer of cheese. Then add in the remaining ingredients-topped with another layer of cheese. If baking - about 15 to 20 minutes. If skillet until cheese is melted. Remove from heat and let set a few minutes on cutting board (about 5 minutes). Then cut like a pizza. Serve with gaucamolie, salsa, salsa con queso, and cilantro. ALways a crowd pleaser.

This wonderful, melted Brie cheese with bread dough baked around it. Serve with fresh strawberries and apple on the side.

1 Pillsbury french loaf, pop and fresh bake
8 ounce wheel of Brie cheese
1/4 cup sliced almonds

Preheat oven to 350 F. Lightly grease a 9 inch pie pan. Place Brie on bake pan. Take french bread loaf and stretch out to double the length. Wrap brie with french bread around the sides. Bake in oven following the directions for french bread.

Half way through baking, sprinkle almonds evenly over the top. You need just enough time for almonds to toast. When done using a large spatula place on a large plate Then slice strawberries and arrange in a circle from outside of brie to the middle and place one on top.

Let cool for 5 minutes before serving.
