       I love appetizers. I can make a meal out of just them. Finger foods are my favorite. When you add bacon to various cheeses and zip it up with some garlic, almost all of my favorite food groups are covered.
      This recipe for a "Creamy Bacon Parmesan Dip" won first place in a recent holiday contest. It's well worth the try and very easy, too. Great party food.
