Skinny-ish Spinach & Artichoke Dip

Everyone wants "Skinny" something these days and I did the best I could to turn Spinach and Artichoke Dip into Skinny Spinach and Artichoke Dip. I think I made it half way, I mean it's still gotta taste good, and this dip tastes delicious. So, I'm calling it Skinny-ish. My middle school and high school days inspired this recipe. Back when my friends and I were California Pizza Kitchen's "CPK" most frequent customers. An order of spinach and artichoke dip to start and a half order of the buffalo chicken salad, please. This dip is one that your guests will ask the recipe for, so I encourage you to make this for you next dinner party, pumpkin party, or The Mindy Project get together. Oh and for the upcoming World Series, too! (Go Giants!!)

Baked Bacon and Avocado Egg Rolls

Baked Bacon and Avocado Egg Rolls. The name in itself makes my mouth water. I've always been a huge egg roll fan, but anything fried kind of scares me. I just imagine myself getting burned from all the flying oil coming out of the pan and me giving up. So, you know what they say, "Those who can't fry - bake." Oh they don't say that? Well, I do. Not only is baking (in my opinion) easier, but healthier. Win-Win according to me. Anyways, I've come to a realization that appetizers may be my favorite things to showcase. So I present you yet another delicious appetizer that will be a hit with everyone (especially those bacon lovers!)!

T2T: Sausage Stars

This Take Two Tuesday I decided to make a fan favorite - Sausage Stars. I've been making these a lot lately, whether it be for football gatherings, pumpkin painting parties, or pre-parties, they seem to be constantly requested. I didn't change much to the recipe but I thought the final pictures were a little prettier and it's perfect for a fall (football) appetizer!
