Best pasta sauce in a jar?

My neighbor swears by Classico 4 cheese. I'm going to have to try it.

Do You Have A Favorite FINGER FOOD recipe?

If you do these on the long narrow "Sardine" French bread they're a 1 or 2 bite finger food.


-1 pound extra sharp Cracker Barrel cheese (room temp)

-1 sm can CHOPPED ripe olives

-1 lg chopped onion, small dice

-1 sm can tomato sauce

-1 cup vegetable oil (I use Canola)

-Salt & Pepper (I don't salt because the cheese is already salty enough for me)

-1/2 tsp dried oregano

-1/2 tsp garlic powder

-Baguette french bread, sliced (try to find "Sardine" size for appetizer)

Preheat oven to 325.
Soften cheese (microwave on defrost or low)
Put cheese in blender.
Blend in oil & tom sauce.
Add remaining ingredients & blend.
Spread onto French bread slices and place on a baking sheet.
Bake @ 325 for approximately 5 minutes. Watch for bubbly, & bottom toasted but not hard.

Farewell, Foie Gras: I'm Not Sorry to See You Go

Wow. I can't believe that there are people here who are indignant and insist that defenseless creatures suffer and be tortured just so they can eat foie gras.

Wow. Just wow.
