Buy a bag of Kettle Krisp chips and take out all the nice big ones. Put a little dollop of Sour cream on each one and a of sliver of some of the salmon trim from the seafood case and a small piece of fresh dill. Put in mouth and enjoy. Some of the other thicker chips can be used in the same way as a base for mouth sized bites

I love to serve a veggie tree during the holidays. Cover a styrofoam cone with lettuce leaves. Stick tomatoes onto the lettuce with toothpicks to resemble ornaments and serve alongside ranch dip for dipping. So good and festive and the perfect holiday small bite.

Nori Rolls with Almond Pate! In a food processor, blend some almonds, soy sauce, garlic, lemon and water until smooth and creamy. Then slather it on a piece of sushi nori, and layer on some sliced carrots, cucumbers and any other veggies you have lying around. Start at one end, roll it all up- then slice, and serve! EASY! Together, all my ingredients came out to $6.45--- I made enough rolls to cut up 15 bites! That's $0.43 a piece! WOOT! http://www.pranawellness.org/1/post/2010/06/nuts-for-nuts-part-2.html

Bake Whole Foods herb garlic chicken sausage until about 85% done. Slice them on the diagonal and sauté with sweet red peppers cut to the same size as the sliced sausages. Place one slice of sausage, one slice of the pepper and a large blackberry together on a toothpick and serve.

Bacon Wrapped Dates If the bacon is thin, use a 1/2 slice for each portion. If the bacon is thick, use a 1/3 slice for each portion. Wrap bacon piece around a date. Put a toothpick through the bacon and date to hold. Place in a deep cookie sheet. Bake at 375 degrees for 10-15 minutes, then turn and continue backing for 10 minutes. Remove dates and place on a paper towel. In a small sauce pan, put 1/4 cup apple jelly and 2T soy sauce. Stir over low heat for 5 minutes. Use sauce for dipping or place the dates on a plate and drizzle with sauce.

Add stems to 1/4 cup breadcrumbs, 1/4 Parmesan cheese, one small minced white onion, garlic power and mix well. Stuff mushroom caps with mixture. Set in baking dish. Drizzle lightly with olive oil. Bake at 425 until sizzling hot. Place small pieces of your favorite white cheese on top, I use provolone. put back in oven until cheese melts. Serve. These are great hot, warm or room temperature.

Norwegian Christmas Smoked-Salmon Pinwheels Here is a recipe my Norwegian husband enjoys making for guests -- maybe because he uses Norwegian smoked salmon! These look beautiful, taste divine, and give a luxurious sensation, while only costing about 35 cents each! They can be made several days ahead and refrigerated, but better hide them or they will disappear before company arrives! Ingredients: White flour rollups (flour tortillas), $2.49 One 16-oz. pkg. smoked Norwegian salmon, $19.99 Two 8-oz. pkgs. Kraft cream cheese, room temperature, $4.38 One bunch fresh organic dill, washed and coarsely chopped, $2.49 Cut salmon into small pieces and divide into four parts (for the four rollups). Spread the cream cheese on the tortillas, using 1/2 pikg. per tortilla. Strew the salmon pieces over the cream cheese. Sprinkle the dill over the salmon. Roll up, rather tightly, as if you were making a jelly roll. Tamp down each roll a bit, so it all sticks together and ingredients adhere. Slice horizontally, into about 22 slices per roll. Arrange on a lovely platter and decorate with more dill or other decoration. Watch your guests demolish them as they ooh and aah!

Ask bakery to slice a French baggette. Cover top of baggette with a thin layer of cream cheese. Top with two small basil leaves or one large one cut in half (both halves on one piece of bread. Top basil with sun dried tomato well drained and again cut in half if large. The reason I cut the basil and sun dried tomato in half is that this is usually a two bite treat and it is easier for your guests if pre-cut.

Make brownies replacing apple sauce with oil to make them low fat. Cut them into small squares about 2 inches by 2 inches. Place a raspberry on top to add fiber and color. What a treat.
