My mother-in-law took great pains to prepare Gefilte Fish for Passover and Rosh Hashanah. The best legacy she left was to teach her sons how to do it and in turn they would teach their wives and then the next generation. This has been passed down and today it is still appreciated as the Mintz Family Gefilte Fish.
Honey and Feta Spread
Though it sounds odd, this delicious appetizer is quick and easy. It always receives rave reviews at parties.
Smoked Fish Dip
This recipe for smoked fish dip is world class, puts most others to shame, and is served in several prominent restaurants on the gulf coast of Florida. We used smoked whitefish, well boned, but any other smoked fish should work. Serve with crackers, lemon or lime wedges, and capers.
Chopped Liver the Real Mccoy
No recipe site is complete without a real recipe for real chopped liver. This makes for a great appetizer or spread for a pastrami and corned beef sandwich.
Hot Artichoke and Spinach Dip II
This dip is amazing -- so cheesy and fragrant. If you don't like artichokes, don't worry -- you'll never know they're in there! My only question is: Is it okay to just eat it with a spoon right out of the dish?
Chocolate Chip Cheese Ball
A sweet switch from the usual cheese ball. Serve with graham crackers or chocolate wafers.
Fig and Olive Tapenade
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.

Creamy Garlic Dip
Creamy Garlic Dip is great with pretzels, chips, crackers and veggies. It tastes best when chilled overnight. Adjust the spices to taste. The recipe may be doubled.
Authentic Middle Eastern Hummus (Chummus)
Authentic chummus is very different and SO much tastier than its American counterpart. This chummus is creamy and delicate in taste rather than overpowered with garlic or thick and pasty. It is eaten warm, fresh, and as a whole meal spread out in a dish and drizzled with fresh olive oil. It is scooped up with pita, raw onion slices, or just a fork. Do NOT use canned chickpeas (garbanzo beans)!
Classic Mediterranean dish using black (preferably Kalamata) olives. This dip is great with pita bread triangles.
This dish is easy to prepare and freezes well. Baked eggplant is mixed with an array of vegetables and flavors. It's a great way to make the most of the garden! Serve with crackers or pita bread.
