Skinny Baked Mozzarella Sticks
Part-skim mozzarella sticks coated with crispy seasoned breadcrumbs and baked until hot and golden. 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!
How to Make Proper Barbecue Chicken

I’ve been an iced coffee freakazoid for years and years. To say I couldn’t live without it is an understatement.
Skinny Mashed Potatoes
Mashed potatoes are one of my favorite things to eat on Thanksgiving, but this year since I am pregnant and on a really strict low carb diet (for my diabetes) real mashed potatoes are out (bummer).

I came across this recipe that uses cauliflower instead of potatoes.
