Some cosmetic changes in preparation for larger site changes in the works.

Traca was a potluck. With the holidays coming, I figured, who doesn't need more

appetizer recipes? So I gathered a group of friends and each person brought 2 appetizers with the intent of sharing the recipes. It worked out very well and I'll definitely be doing it again.

It was really great because we after we ate, we analyzed the dishes and why we brought them. Also, it was fun to look at what was left and start asking ourselves...why? One of the women in our group is a cooking school instructor so while we didn't delve into it too deeply, she was able to offer some great insight.

We looked at the dishes and decided...what was best served hot...and what could be served room temp? What was easy to do ahead? What was worth the effort? What's the first thing to go? And what is it about tapenade that no one seems to eat it at my parties? I finally quit making it, but someone else made it for this event...and the same thing happened. It was barely touched. Why?

There were several dishes I liked a lot. Once I get the recipes typed, I'll be more than happy to share my favorites. I've got photos too!
