Diane's Bread Canapes

Kathie Carr


Diane Kruse Ferris was my college room mate, years ago, a Home Ec major. We had a co-op room at Ruby Mason Hall where we cooked our own meals and did our own cleaning. Not like a dorm back then where you got meals and a cleaning lady. :)

Diane often made these for snacks. They were quick, easy, and yummy. Also inexpensive so we could make a ton of them to share with others in our hall.

If you are out there somewhere, Diane, email me!
