Q: I'm hosting a graduation brunch next month to celebrate my boyfriend finishing his MBA and so we're having his whole extended family over to our apartment.
While I have a good handle on most of the buffet-style menu, I want to make sure there's something for his diabetic aunt whom I really adore. Any make ahead suggestions?

Editor: Carol, I love these crispy apple-bacon turnovers. You can use frozen puff pastry and make them up ahead of time, then bake right before serving. They don't have any sugar; as long as your boyfriend's aunt can still have fruit these should be fine. But they have all the pleasure of a sweet, flaky, bakery-style treat.
