Q: I have been invited to a themed party to which all the guests have to bring a ball-shaped food item. People go all out for this party. There are even prizes!
However, beyond the rice ball and the meatball, I am short on ball-shaped foods. Any advice?

Editor: Alison, wow, that sounds like quite a party! Here are a few ideas that come to mind:
• Cake pops
• Bacon pops
• Mochi ice cream balls
• Peanut butter popcorn balls
• Cheese balls, like this blue cheese and rosemary ball or this one with Havarti and parsley
• Melon balls, perhaps on skewers
• Cherry tomatoes with balls of mozzarella
Readers, more ideas for Alison?
