These baked ham and cheese sliders are a quick and easy appetizer for any party.

Not-So-Sweet Baked Ham

Rating: 5 stars 48
Skip the sweet and sugary ham glaze and try this savory version instead!

Mama's Quik and Simple Pimento Cheese Spread

Rating: 4.5 stars 3
Mama did not always feel like cooking right away; here was a little snack to hold us over. Easy to do, with few ingredients already in your fridge and cabinets. Best served with Ritz® crackers, but you can spread on your favorite slice of bread and make a sandwich, if you prefer. Refrigerate when finished.

Barbeque Bacon Chicken Bake

Rating: 4.5 stars 229
Easy-to-make chicken with a little variation. Great on the grill but just as good baked in the oven when you can't grill out.

Three-Ingredient Baked Chicken Breasts

Rating: 4.5 stars 407
Chicken breasts baked in butter and salt is a fast, easy 3-ingredient dish.

Fried Salvadorian Sweet Plantains

Rating: 4.5 stars 10
El Salvador way of frying plantains for a sweet taste. Delicious plantain sticks.

Parmesan Crusted Tilapia Fillets

Rating: 4.5 stars 775
Quick. simple fish with great flavor. Baked to perfection for an easy meal.

Honey Bunch Bread

Rating: 4.5 stars 20
This is our family's favorite bread recipe; it was obtained from one of my fathers' coworkers.

Lime Bars

Rating: 4 stars 109
A different take on the lemon bars we all love. I actually prefer them to lemon. This is my favorite bar cookie and I'm asked to bring it when going to a potluck or picnic. The recipe says it serves 36, but you can't eat just one of these delicious, tangy lime bars. You can omit the glaze and sprinkle with powdered sugar if that's your preference.

Fig and Brie Crostini

Rating: 5 stars 13
Easy and impressive appetizer! Make the fig spread the night before to save yourself the prep time on the day of an event.

Fig and Honey Jam with Walnuts

Rating: 5 stars 16
I recently made a meat and cheese board for my family and wanted to make a jam/preserve with it that we normally wouldn't have. Figs came to mind and, after searching around a little and getting a few ideas, I came up with this. It was such a huge hit that I decided to share it. I hope that everyone enjoys it as much as we did! It will last for up to 30 days if you do not can it.
