Fig and Olive Tapenade

Rating: 4.5 stars 264
This is an easy gourmet appetizer. I've brought this to several parties and it is always a hit! I often add some chopped green olives to the olive mixture and a little more balsamic. Goat cheese may also be used in place of the cream cheese. Serve with slices of French bread or crackers.

Cocktail Meatballs I

Rating: 4.5 stars 360
Simple meatballs with an unusual chili sauce/grape jelly coating. Quite a combination of tastes and textures. Note: After cooking, I like to keep the meatballs warm in a slow cooker until ready to serve.

Basil Parmesan Spread

Rating: 4.5 stars 47
Serve this yummy, zingy dip with crackers or bread at your next party. An exciting basil, Parmesan cheese and sun-dried tomato paste mixture is spread inside creamy cheese layers. It's best when chilled overnight before serving.

I created this light summery dip/spread to use up an overabundance of my garden's ripe tomatoes and gorgeous basil. Serve with cut-up vegetables, crackers or corn chips.

Basil Pesto Bread Rounds

A very easy, versatile recipe of a pesto topping on French bread slices. One of my most requested recipes! Great for potlucks or as an accompaniment to soup or salad meals. Try them with sun-dried tomato pesto!

Jalapeno Popper Spread

This will definitely be the biggest hit at the party! This is such an easy appetizer to make and it tastes just like the jalapeno poppers you wish you could make yourself! The hardest part of this recipe is not eating it all by yourself! Serve with sliced sourdough baguettes, tortilla chips or crackers.
