Seriously Addictive! I made these as an appetizer for the playoffs this weekend and they were so good! We couldn't get enough of them and I loved that I was getting al the Buffalo flavor I wanted but I didn't have to feel guilty about eating a lot of wings because I was eating veggies! Pros: Fast and a yummy way to get veggies! Cons: Not enough! Read More

So tasty! I made this as an appetizer when some family was visiting. Very simple to do and everyone raved about it. I served it with celery and ranch dip made with the ranch seasoning packet and Greek yogurt dressing (only 20 cal for 2 tbsp) which was perfect. Will def be making again. Read More
