Wmdnndty, j u | y 9. 1975 P»q« 7 By OLGA GIZE CARULE J-S Women's Editor Party fancies ^ canapes, tidbits, open-faced sandwiches - garnished and frilled scare many an accomplished hostess. ... v ' And for this reason many have slipped into the chip dip era. Turning things about in Freeport a bit is Mrs. Frederick H. Ellis Sr., 1414 S. Harlem Ave;, a party giver from way back when who makes it a hobby to produce cool and clever canapes. She likes to do it so much, in fact, that she often volunteers to make the food for parties and receptions. She recently made 250 cream puffs, stuffed and froze them in time for a weekend cocktail party. "I do it gradually, and it isn't hard at all," says a well-organized Bonnie Ellis. "I love to cook, so I plan ahead and shop ahead. My lackadaisical attitude helps, becuase I never get excited about if." Mrs. Ellis first cuts her bread into a variety of shapes and then freezes it. "It's much easier to spread this way." She plans carefully for variety and for color, and there is always her challenge to provide something out of the ordinary. The way you present" food can give elegance to a simple affair, she says. To help in planning the party for a special friend or summer get-together, here are some of Mrs. Ellis' recipe ideas for finger foods. These were created for entertaining.
