Hors d’oeuvre’s

The word hors d’oeuvre just sounds fancy, whether Cheez Whiz is involved or not.

Gourmet Cooking Contest using canned foods only, anyone? I am thinking pate, crabcakes and canned cheese for the win.

Send us your “fancy appetizers” and we will post them!

I think the Mormon Mavens got it right with this one.

Apple Nachos

November 16, 2018
: 2-4 it'sup to you


  • Apples (we usually have Gala or Pink Lady…but use your fav.)
  • Lemon Juice/Fruit Fresh/or Lemon Lime Soda (if you don’t want them to brown)
  • Peanut Butter (about 1/2 C per 2 apples), Warmed
  • Craisins (Dried Cranberries)
  • Shredded Sweetened Coconut
  • Slivered Almonds (or any other type of chopped nut)
  • Step 1 First, just get your apples washed and sliced. If you want to prevent them from browning, put the apples in a bowl or ZipLock bag and pour either lemon juice, a Fruit Fresh solution or some lemon lime soda (like 7Up or Sprite) over them and stir or shake to coat them completely. Warm up the PB in a microwaveable cup or dish. I did 1/2 C for about 30-40 seconds.
  • Step 2 When you get the apples on the plate, just start piling it on! We started with the Craisins, then drizzled that melty PB all over.
  • Step 3 Mmmmmmm. Melty Goodness.
