Simply DIVINE Receipt for Festive Occasions

Hildur: These wedges of food will make your tastebuds sing Hallelujah. (she opens her large, luscious lips to sing)

Joan (clamping her hand over Hildur's mouth): Don't even ponder the notion.

Hildur's eyes bug out, and she tries to bite Joan's hand. Joan remains unmoved.

Athena (ignoring them): And your friends will be madly jealous that you came up with something "different" for the neighborhood holiday party.

Bunny (smiling sweetly): Besides which, they're very easy to make.

Joan (removing her hand from Hildur's face): Tell them what they're called, Hildur.

Hildur (inhaling a deep breath): Pecan-Havarti Quesadillas with Pear Preserves!

Everyone claps for her. Hildur smiles.

Athena: This recipe comes from the Southern Living Christmas Cookbook.

Joan: And can be easily doubled or tripled.

Bunny: It goes well with your favorite Cabernet Sauvignon or a lovely champagne.
