  1. Easy Goat Cheese Appetizer

    Hide

    Be ready when friends stop by -- or make a family dinner more special -- with this warm, hearty appetizer made from grocery store ingredients that keep for weeks. Break 8 to 12 ounces of marinated goat cheese or feta into large chunks, place in a small ovenproof dish, and bake at 325 degrees for 15 to 20 minutes until golden brown. Remove the dish from the oven, drizzle with olive oil, and garnish with fresh thyme (if desired) and 1/2 teaspoon whole pink peppercorns. Serve with sliced baguette or crackers.

  2. Heart-Shaped Eggs and Toast

    Hide

    Why settle for ordinary eggs and toast when you can show your love with this version? 

    Using a 3-inch heart-shaped cookie cutter, remove the center of a thick slice of bread, and toast it. Melt 1 1/2 teaspoons butter in a small skillet over medium heat. Place bread slice in skillet, and cook until underside is lightly browned. Add another 1 1/2 teaspoons butter, and flip bread. Fit cookie cutter, coated with cooking spray, in bread's cutout heart, and crack an egg into cutter. Cover skillet, and cook until egg is set, 2 to 3 minutes. Use tongs to remove cutter. Serve with toasted heart for dipping into yolk.

  3. Cloth Napkin Bread Basket

    Hide

    Some holiday parties require every serving dish you own -- and then some. Improvise a bread basket with a large rectangular cloth napkin or dish towel, preferably starched linen (the stiffer the fabric, the better it will hold its shape). Lay the fabric horizontally on a table. Fold the longer side up, slightly more than halfway. Fold the top half down in the same way, so the two edges overlap by an inch. Turn it over, and fold the shorter sides in to meet. For extra security, pin in place. Flip over again, and place rolls or a sliced loaf into the opening.
