Parmesan Onion Rounds - #SundaySupper

As we all gather this holiday season to give thanks and reflect on the year gone by, we do so with heavy hearts at the recent horrific tragedy in Newtown, Connecticut.

My deepest love and prayers go out the the families who have lost their loved ones (so many of them little children) in such a senseless act of violence that there can never be a sufficient understanding of.

To be writing a blog post about some silly appetizers hardly seems like the thing to be doing right now, and yet, it is the return to normal activities that is so important at this time.  Life surprisingly goes on, and whatever fear you feel must be squashed before it has a chance to consume your life. I return to my kitchen to find the solace I need and the comfort that keeps me safe and in control of my little corner of the world.

It is a this time that I'd like to thank our hostess for this weeks #SundaySupper, Conni of  The Foodie Army Wife for being the "hostess with the mostess" for December's cocktail and appetizer party.  Thank you ever so much Conni for opening your doors so we can all congregate in our safe kitchen havens and come together to share and celebrate all that is good in this world.

My appetizer recipe for this weeks #SundaySupper is one I've been making for years. It's quick and easy to throw together and is always a hit with party guests as it's full of flavor and tastes good, either warm out of the oven, or served at room temperature on a buffet table.
