Hello from Ohio!

I had recently realized that I had lost my recipe for the Cattleman's Spread appetizer and used your website to obtain it. Just a suggestion for the recipe - this appetizer is EXCELLENT served with corn chips (such as Fritos). Our family loves it!

Thanks for creating such a useful website! ~ Kim
