      This is a hit year after year at an annual get-together. The platter never makes it very far from the chef.

      I love these. I've got the cookbook from where this recipes comes, and it's one of my cooking bibles. These hush puppies are plain fun to eat and colorful. If you want a variation that puts an interesting spin on this recipe - or have a sweet tooth - add some frozen or canned corn kernels. Crazy as it sounds, kids love these.
