    These all look fabulous!!!! The only problem with the pecan maple bacon is that it probably wouldn’t make it to the guest plate. Bobby & I would finish it off because it had a chance to cool. 🙂 Thanks for putting this collection together and for including my chile spread!!!! Now to decide which one to take to Sunday’s party.

    This is certainly a tasty — and dazzling — array of appetizers, Judy. No doubt your guests would feel spoilt by these delights. By the way, just how does one get on your guest list, anyway? 🙂
    Congratulations on your book, Judy. I’m sure it is going to do quite well.
