Cocktails Anyone??

By Mary
Custom Smiley Once again we decided to have cocktails with the neighbors. You know what that appetizer competition between Steve and me.

While watching Martha a few weeks ago, I saw someone making eggrolls. Many years ago I used to do a lot of Oriental cooking including eggrolls. I don't have that particular recipe here with me, but decided I would really like to try the one displayed on Martha's show. Needless to say, that is what I decided to make for today's cocktail party. They were OK, but quite frankly the ones I made years ago were a lot better and when I go home in April I intend to get that cookbook from Mother's house.

Steve's appetizer was great. It was "Twist-a-Ronis". An appetizer Rachel Ray made on her show...the one on network TV not the Food Network. They were REALLY good. Rex liked them too, but not the dipping sauce which had red pepper flakes and fire roasted crushed tomatoes....not quite Rex friendly foods!!
