Whether you're a beginner in the kitchen or a veteran, every home cook needs some great appetizers in her arsenal. Make enough of them and you and your guests may just be able to skip dinner altogether. You can never have too many in your mental cookbook; it's fun to serve old favorites and exciting new bites every time. That said, Martha Stewart's new cookbook, Martha Stewart's Appetizers, which hits bookshelves Sept. 8 and is available for pre-order now, is one book everyone should own. Today, the kitchen queen is sharing three recipes from her new book with us. These simple snacks are uncomplicated and delicious recipes that you can leave out for guests to nibble on while you're busy preparing more complicated appetizers and dishes. Read on.
