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.

Hot Reuben Spread

Delicious and always one of the most popular spreads at any party this spread is also super-easy to make. A nice spin on the perennial favorite Reuben sandwiches in an easier to eat form, we keep the spread warm in a small slow cooker to make spreading easier. I like serving this spread with toasted triangles or squares of rye and pumpernickel bread - but it is also excellent with crackers, white or wheat bread slices, and cocktail toasts.

1 pound drained and rinsed sauerkraut
1 medium grated onion
8 ounces softened cream cheese
2 cups shredded Swiss cheese
4 ounces chopped corned beef
1/4 cup Thousand Island dressing
Toasted rye and pumpernickel bread slices

Combine the sauerkraut, onion, cheeses, corned beef, and dressing in a greased 1 1/2 quart slow cooker. Cover and cook on low for 2-3 hours, stirring once, or until the spread is smooth and all the cheese is melted. Serve hot.

Makes about 4 cups spread.
