QI like throwing small parties to get my friends together so we can catch up. Because I enjoy baking and cooking, I am always looking for unusual appetizers and mini desserts to serve. Do you have any new and unusual ideas?

What lucky friends you have! I love to entertain guests, too. In fact, one of my resolutions this year was to entertain more and worry less.

If you’re looking for a little novelty, how about these Gazpacho Shooters with Mini Grilled Cheese Sandwiches ? They’re a fun appetizer and a conversation starter all in one. I love the way the recipe plays with childhood memories of grilled cheese and tomato soup, while adding a little grown-up spice.

When you and your guests are ready to move on to sweets, I’ve got two suggestions that look and taste impressive — but will leave you plenty of energy to enjoy the get-together. These Mini Raspberry Almond Cream Puffs and Sticky Toffee Dessert Cakes are darling, delicious and just daring enough.

Let us know how your friends like them!

I would like to know just how much salt is in the sauces? I have to watch my salt intake because of my heart. THANKS!
