  1. Hey! I need a healthy appetizer dish for a few women! I'm heading home to Wisconsin for Spring Break tomorrow and hanging out with some friends! Also, do you have a healthy pizza recipe? If you could email me at kmnehm@ncsu.edu that would be wonderful!!

  2. Looks good!! I do the same thing but I use Oscar Myer Light Wienners. My kids love them. Makes for an easy, quick supper! Keep up the good work. I found you on sparkpeople. I will be adding you as a friend. My username is Edysdoll.

  3. These look SOOO good! Making these tomorrow morning, for sure!!!

  4. I am a vegetarian, but this looks good!

  5. Ah man, that looks good! When I make these, I'm going to add some mozz cheese on top and have it be melted. More yum!

  6. Looks delish!! I love ALL your food pics (except for the eggplant one, lol)

  7. I will be having this in the morning. These recipes are awesome and helpful. Keep 'em coming

  8. Hey Ladies, so glad that you liked the recipe. I made some this weekend at our SPARK convention and well, guess what, you can make them with even less calories and fat... if you use half a slice of Fat Free American it brings the calories for each to 117 and only 5g of fat.

    CJ, as a vegetarian, you could try this recipe with Tofu Sausage Links with Tofutti Cream Cheese, I bet that would be great or a Tofu Cheese. If you try it, let me know!
