Expert Tips

Chopped, dried apricot or other dried fruit works just as well as raisins in this quick snack.

Instead of mixing the raisins with the cream cheese, line them up along the top of each cheese-stuffed celery stalk for a reinterpretation of the classic "ants on a log" snack.

It's easiest to grate the peel of a firm, fresh orange. Use a fine-holed grater, sharp paring knife or a citrus zester, remove the colored part of the rind only, not the bitter white pith underneath.
