Our recipe is for a simple, but elegant, Sun Dried Tomato, Pesto and Garlic bite-size appetizer, made with creamy, garlic whipped cheese, sun dried tomatoes, and a little pesto. They are beautiful little bites that are packed full of flavor. You can whip the cheese the day before and then put it is a disposable bag to pipe it into the phyllo cups, but honestly this recipe is so simple to make it is no big deal to make it right before guests head over…or in my case, right before you and the family settle in to watch the show.

I’m still up in the air on who I’m cheering for this year. There are so many great films up for awards, but I think I’m leaning towards Leo and The Revenant…but I do love Matt Damon…we’ll see!
