Warm Bacon Dip Ingredients: 1 round loaf (1 pound) sourdough bread (optional) 1 pkg. (8 ounces) cream cheese, softened 1 1/2 cups (12 ounces) sour cream 2 cups (8 ounces) shredded cheddar cheese 1 1/2 tsp. Worcestershire sauce 3/4 pound sliced bacon, cooked and crumbled 3/4 cup chopped green onions Assorted crackers If using the bread as a bread bowl, cut the top fourth off the loaf of bread; carefully hollow out the bottom, leaving a 1-inch shell. Reserve the removed bread for other purposes. Otherwise, grease a large serving dish. In a mixing bowl, beat the cream cheese. Add the sour cream, cheddar, and Worcestershire sauce until combined; stir in bacon and onions. Spoon into bread bowl or dish. If using bread bowl, wrap filled bread bowl in heavy duty foil. Bake at 325 degrees for 1 hour or until heated through. Serve with crackers. Yield: about 4 cups of dip, so it goes a long way!

I get requests for my Caramel Cream Cheese Dip. Unwrap 16 – 20 caramels and cut into small pieces. Place in a small saucepan and add a small amount of water or milk and melt on low heat. Stir often. Put one softened 8 oz. block of cream cheese in a medium bowl. Add a ¼ cup of brown sugar and cream with hand mixer. When the caramels have melted and are smooth, add to cream cheese and mix thoroughly. Serve with apple slices or any favorite fruit.

Start with a puff pastry.Brush with a beaten egg. Cut the pastry into bite size squares. Bake until golden brown. However, halfway through baking, push down the center of the puff to make an edge ( works best with your thumb, just be careful!!) While the puffs are cooking take a frying pan and add raw almonds or pecans ( just enough to cover bottom of pan). Add enough water to cover the nuts about half way. add a little less than 1/4 raw sugar, a teaspoon of chili powder and a little fresh ground black pepper. Gently simmer until all the water has dissolved and the nuts are coated. In the center of the puffs add a few small pieces of gorgonzola cheese and a couple nuts!! I promise you will be addicted!! tip: it is best to work with the nuts while still warm. If they begin to stick together just warm them up again.

My favorite appitizer is saurkraut balls: One small canned ham chopped, One Can drained saurkraut, 3 garlic cloves, One small onion, One block, small, cream cheese, Blend in food processor, roll in balls, dip in beaten egg and milk, roll in bread crumbs, deep fry till golden brown, serve hot. For people that don't like the saurkaut, I call them ham balls, they never really know the difference, they are to die for, My mom made them every year, for the holidays.

Baked Prosciutto Jalapeno Wraps These are simple, delicious, and can be made in a flash. I always keep a stash of frozen jalapenos from my garden, so I can assemble these appetizers quickly, if I have unexpected guests. 1/4 to a 1/2 pound La Quercia American Prosciutto, sliced thinly 8 ounces cream cheese 15 or so jalapeno peppers (each pepper makes two servings) Preheat oven to 350. Cut off the stems of the jalapenos, slice the peppers lengthwise, and spoon out the seeds (wash hands thoroughly before you touch your eyes!). Fill cream cheese inside the hollowed peppers, slightly mounded over the top. Wrap the stuffed peppers with a piece of prosciutto and line on a baking sheet. Bake about ten minutes to cook. Next, set the oven to broil and broil until the prosciutto slightly crisps. Flip each pepper to crisp the other side. This can be easily done in small batches in a toaster oven.

I like your organic unbleached white flour but I would like more value for my money. Why don't you sell larger bags of flour at a cost savings for your customers. I like to make bread
