Nettie, well I am the one who thought these bites looked great and decided to make for my July 4th neighbor get together. I can tell you I was the hit of the food table. As I walked in and passing some people as I went to the food display, people oohed and awed and asked if they could take one from my dish. Thank you, thank you again for having such a wonderful array of recipes that are just wonderful. Everyone thought they were tasty and wanted the recipe. I wonder if I should keep the recipe for myself. Just joking, I tell them to check you site though. I appreciate your being available.
