3 Easy And Quick Appetizer Recipes

3 easy and quick appetizer recipes

The majority of my summer has been spent snacking on BBQ appetizers and I’m not mad about it. However, as an admitted meathead with few kitchen skills, I always panic when I need to bring an appetizer dish to the BBQ and head to google for an easy and quick recipe. I’m also not ashamed to say I have brought a bowl full of cooked bacon on more than one occasion and it goes over quite well.

…And Not Burn The House Down. If only I could bake half as well as @Samantha_395 or create #foodporn worthy pics like @aflynn. But I’m trying and geek on healthy, tasty food blogs on the reg for healthy dessert recipes.

Confession: I Eat (Healthy and Easy to Make) Gross Things

It sounds gross, it looks gross, but… easy, healthy recipes in a pinch. As a first time bikini competitor I have been recommended a few weird but super easy concoctions. I was pleasantly surprised and want to share my favorites with you.   –Turkey Meatloaf Muffins For those Midwest folks familiar with hamballs, it’s like that without the tasty sauce and made with turkey burger.
