The beginning of a meal is often our favorite part. We have so many recipes and good ideas for starters, snacks, and little nibbles in our 2009 archives. There are bacon-wrapped potato bites and chicken nuggets, cheese-stuffed dates and peppers, a creative and beautiful Mediterranean platter, homemade beef jerky, cheese straws, tomato jam, gluten-free chickpea pancake, and much, much more.
