Welcome to the December issue of Seasoned Cooking and to Phil's International Flair! This month's theme is appetizers. Appetizers can be very diverse and tasty as well as decorative. Appetizers can usually be prepared ahead of time and arranged on various platters to create a festive appearance for the holidays.
I have included some recipes for my favorite appetizers and some ideas on how to make your appetizers appeal to the eye as well as the palate. Besides these recipes, be sure to access the Seasoned Cookingarchives for additional appetizer recipes from previous columns and other articles. Some additional suggestions would include sushi rolls, devilled eggs, or a traditional vegetable platter with ranch dressing. Whatever you choose to serve during the holiday season, make the appetizers with love in your heart and enjoy!
The recipes presented this month are but a small yet diverse collection of the recipes in my yet to be published book, Phil's Family and Friends Cookbook. Feel free to email me at with your comments and requests. Be well, and good eating!
Now, on to the recipes!
