Cracker Bites with Dip, Cucumbers and Cheese

Cracker bites with dip, cucucmbers and cheese

Sometimes instead of a full meal all I want is a platter of various snacks. Or maybe even just one delicious snack that I can have a lot of. Bite sized food is great because you always lose count as to how many you’ve had and leave the table thinking you didn’t eat as much…

Figs with Blue Cheese, Honey and Pistachios

Figs with Blue Cheese, Honey and Pistachios – sounds strange right? Who knew this mish-mash of ingredients could actually come together nicely? But somehow it does.
