Detail of Caramel Apple-Almond Crepes

Caramel Apple-Almond Crepes

A great dish for dessert or breakfast, these filled crepes are quick and easy to make, full of wonderful flavor, and make any occasion special.

Bacon Radish Pinwheels

These make ahead appetizers have always been a family tradition. Your whole family can help, even the littlest ones, in making these treats in assembly line fashion.

3/4 cup shredded sharp cheddar cheese
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper
1/2 teaspoon Dijon mustard
2 tablespoons plain yogurt
6 slices white bread
2 tablespoons butter
6 slices bacon
12 large radishes

In a small bowl mix the cheddar cheese, salt, pepper, mustard, and yogurt until well blended. Remove the crusts from the bread and roll flat with a rolling pin or glass. Spread each slice with a small amount of butter and flip over. Spread the unbuttered side evenly with the cheese mixture. Roll up very tightly with the buttered side on the outside. Cut each bacon slice into three pieces. Cut each bread roll into three pieces and roll a slice of bacon around the outside of it. Secure firmly with a toothpick. Wrap well with plastic wrap and chill until just before serving, up to 24 hours ahead of time. You can also slice the radishes into thin slices ahead of time and store in a plastic bag or well wrapped bowl. Just before serving, place the bacon rolls on a broiling pan and broil until the bacon is crisp and cooked through. Cool slightly, remove the toothpicks, and slice each roll into three slices. Arrange the bacon wheels on toothpicks with radish slices on each side. Serve immediately.

Makes 18 appetizers.
