It could happen. Onion dip, cheese balls and baked brie might just go the way of the dodo bird. It could happen, that is, once cooks take a look at the newly published "Hors d'oeuvres" cookbook (OK Publishing Inc., New York, 168 pages, $19.95) by chef Eric Treuille and caterer Victoria Blashford-Snell, both of London. A second glance should send cooks scurrying for the cumin and coriander, shrimp and chicken wings, skewers, phyllo and tortillas -- whatever's on hand to begin the magic. The only remaining problem: Which recipe to go for first?

He just had to get his hands on a copy of the new "Joy of Cooking.""There's been a lot of hype," Gillis said of the latest revision of the venerable cookbook, which first appeared in 1931.The latest revision, the sixth in the book's history but the first in 22 years, has been 3 1/2 years and a couple of controversies in the making. The book was originally written and self-published by St. Louis socialite and housewife Irma Rombauer.

Arlene Gillis is on her second cooking life. With her two children grown and gone, she's become an "empty-nester" cook, she says. "My cooking has changed from being family-oriented, and constantly looking for something new, to being much more spur-of-the-moment."When her children were at home, she said, "there never was a meal that didn't have meat -- a protein, a starch and a vegetable. Now we [she and husband Ed] think nothing of having a soup dinner, or a salad dinner."Gillis, who owns Books for Cooks cookbook store in the Light Street Pavilion at Harborplace, wasn't interested in cooking when she was growing up, but when she married, someone gave her a Better Homes and Gardens cookbook, and that was how she started.

Barbara Smith had a ready answer when her mother marveled at her wide range of acquaintances. "You have so many friends.""Ma," Ms. Smith replied, "I cook."Friends, family and acquaintances can pretty much count on the hospitality of Ms. Smith, proprietor of two restaurants called B. Smith's in New York and Washington, and once a Wilhelmina model whose face has graced the covers of Essence, Ebony and Mademoiselle. Food and entertainment are her "passions."But now everyone can benefit from her expertise, which she's set out in a stylish and lavishly illustrated book, "B. Smith's Entertaining and Cooking for Friends" (with Kathleen Cromwell, Artisan, $30)
