Sausage Balls

Sausage Balls

from Vivian Garnand

Our favorite food to take to any of our family gatherings at Christmastime is "Sausage Balls". They are asked for months in advance and our daughter, who is now married and a Mom, demands them and says they are what make coming home wonderful for her. It's a simple recipe, but so-o-o-o good.


1 pound sausage (medium is the best)

Grated Cheddar cheese (use however much you want)

Bixquick (enough so mixture will form balls)

Just mix and bake 10-15 minutes at 350 degrees.

Ayotte Family Porcupine Ball

My favorite thing to take is a porcupine ball. I take a round of bread, anytype, scoop it out, put in dill dip and put cheese cubes, cherry tomatoes, olives and anything else I have on toothpicks and stick them into the outside of the bread until all is covered.

Perri Storch's Shrimp Dip

My favorite holiday dish to share is a shrimp drip. It is a simple recipe that is both delicious and pretty to look at. Take one block of cream cheese and let it warm enough to allow a cracker to slice through. Add a handful of small shrimp, which has been well rinsed. Pour on top of the shrimp and cream cheese your favorite cocktail sauce and top off with another sprinkle of shrimp. Serve with a selection of crackers. Enjoy!

Harvesting and Using Summer Squash

Summer squash is one of my favorite vegetables. I love the yellow summer squash in particular. They should be harvested while still tender, when they have a "glossy" appearance and are still small. You will most likely need to harvest daily once they start to appear.
