Skinny Baked Mozzarella Sticks

Serve them with my quick marinara sauce and you have yourself an appetizer everyone will love. Hot mozzarella sticks, I can't think of a more popular finger food with both kids and adults alike!

Crispy Southwest Chicken Wraps. Update 6/2012: Taken after the model of these delicious wraps, I threw these together for dinner one night nearly three years ago in a frantic attempt to feed my hungry family and use ingredients I already had on hand. And the result was such a smashing success that we’ve continued to enjoy this recipe at least monthly since (and that’s saying a lot coming from the lady who doesn’t repeat many meals). Full of flavor, these wraps are a snap to make.

The method turns out a delightfully crunchy tortilla that is filled with rice, chicken, beans, spices and cheese. And they make great leftovers. I just love it when a meal happens to fit all the criteria I love: healthful, fast, delicious. Downtown Bakery and Creamery’s Cinnamon Sugar Donut Muffins « Just Baked.

The process starts out the same, boil the noodles, brown the meat and make a sauce. Mini Fruit Pizzas Recipe from Pillsbury. Homemade Protein Bars.
