Trail Mix Sandwiches

Rating: 4 stars 26
Going on an adventure? These unique sandwiches pack a lot of nutrients and travel extremely well. They do require an adventurous spirit because they are quite different than they average fare. For a sweeter taste use a trail mix that includes dried fruit. I would not recommend one with chocolate pieces, though! Plain, unchopped sunflower seeds work great, too.

Rating: 4.5 stars 35
Instead of regular garlic bread, my family requests this spread. The flavor is best when I use parsley and basil fresh from the garden. --Jennie Wilburn, Long Creek, Oregon

An easy Cornucopia centerpiece for your Thanksgiving table. Fill the cornucopia with the assorted raw vegetables directly on table and let them spill out of opening NOTE- To prevent this center-piece from absorbing atmospheric moisture, the baked cornucopia cone can be sprayed with shellac or clear enamel. If treated in this manner, the cornucopia will be inedible but can be preserved and re-used.
