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.
