Dip For The Stars
This spread is delicious and unique. It truly is much more colorful than this photo depicts. Couple of tips...I've gotten the best reviews when I serve the spread with slices of baguette bread. The flavor is simply too overwhelming for a cracker in my opinion. The bread slice stands up to the texture and flavors quite nicely and it makes the perfect two-bite appetizer. This recipe goes a LONG way as it's quite rich. I agree with those who say leave the butter in. The texture would change too much without it. I have found, however, that I need to soak up some of the oil that leeches out of the spread from the pesto and sundried tomatoes. It looks nicer if you clean it up a bit once it's set. You won't have to worry how it looks for long, however, because it will be GONE! Great recipe.

Sausage Jalapeno Poppers
What a hit with everyone at the party! The reviewer who mentioned brushing the bacon with honey before wrapping the pepper was right on! It adds that background flavor that makes people wonder. Also, added cayenne for some extra heat to the sausage/cream cheese mixture. My peppers were somewhat mild so this punched up the flavor a bit. I used a convection oven to bake the peppers and even that didn't crisp the bacon as much as I would have liked. Next time I'll microwave the bacon slightly before I wrap the peppers. Thanks for the recipe -- I'll make it again and again!
