Christmas Appetizer Winner!

Okay folks, you all submitted some excellent recipes! I had to narrow the list down to three that we wanted to try, and though it was next to impossible, we made it happen.

The three contest entries were:

Sausage Wontons submitted by Stacy
Jalapeno Popper Dip submitted by Lisa
Pepperoni Dip submitted by Melissa

Oh. My. Gracious. Sakes. Alive. Each of these little delicacies were DELIGHTFUL.

The Sausage Wontons were absolutely beautiful. If I was basing this contest on presentation, this would be the winner hands down.


They were very tasty and my family enjoyed them so much! Especially Husby and my Sister-In-Law!

The Pepperoni Dip was devoured and my brother was especially fond of it.


It was super easy to make. I went with Melissa's recommendation and kept it warm in a crock pot, so it stayed hot and ready the entire evening. Delish.

Lastly was the Jalapeno Popper Dip.


I'm not even kidding you when I say this is absolutely INCREDIBLE.


I fixed this on Christmas Eve among all of our usual standard appetizers that we have each year (cheese ball, cookie ball, hot garlic bread dip, summer sausage & cheese and a veggie tray).

As each family member took a bite, they raved and raved AND RAVED about this stuff. I had to write down the recipe for several people and was told that this must be in our regular line up from here on out. It was the only thing devoured in it's entirety with not one bite left.

I polled the family, and it was a unanimous decision. While we very much enjoyed each new recipe, the Jalapeno Popper Dip was the favorite.

Thank you, LISA for the excellent recipe! Please send me your mailing information at : and I will send out your Frozen Hot Chocolate Kit in the next few days!

Here is the recipe for all you folks to try. You'll love it!

Jalapeno Popper Dip

1 8 oz. package softened cream cheese
1/2 cup mayonnaise
1/2 cup shredded cheddar cheese
1/2 cup shredded parmesan cheese
4 chopped jalapeno peppers (with or without seeds, depends on how spicy you like it)
1/4 cup bread crumbs
1/4 cup additional shredded parmesan cheese

Mix the cream cheese, mayonnaise, cheddar cheese, 1/2 cup of parmesan cheese, and jalapenos together and pour into a baking dish. Mix the bread crumbs and 1/4 cup of parmesan cheese together and sprinkle over cream cheese mixture. Bake in a 375F oven about 20 - 25 minutes, or until brown and bubbly. Serve with tortilla chips or crackers.

Thanks again for all the fabulous recipes. I'm set on appetizers for a LONG time!

  18. I feel so blessed again in my marriage after PRIEST OSAS brought back my husband that separated with me for good 3 months. ANNY ROBERT by name from California. Even though I have mouths all over my body, it won't be enough to thank PRIEST OSAS for his help in my life. My husband separated with me for 3 months and has been in pain and agony without him. So, I searched for help everywhere but nothing worked out not until I meant PRIEST OSAS who I contacted online. I explained my situation to him and he promised that my husband will get back to me within 24 to 48 hours so that my heart still beats for him. I believed in him and he prepared a spell for me and my husband called me exactly when PRIEST OSAS said. He pleaded and said he needs me back and now we are living happily again for the past 9 months. Everyone out there reading my article that needs help should contact him...
