Loaded Veggie Flatbread
I paid $10 at my local Irish pub for this same meal, except their's was a quarter of the size and not all that good. I also didn't have to go shopping for ingredients because everything I used are things I usually have on hand.

Loaded Baked Potato
It's a lot more fun to pig out when you're doing no harm. This recipe is fast, easy and low fat, although you'd never know it if you weren't the one making it. If it's your new year's resolution to eat healthier, make this!
It only looks and tastes fancy - the rest is a piece of cake. The hardest part is slicing that squash paper thin. Should it look less than perfect, you've got a mound of fresh greens and cheese to go right on top.
Put down the potato chips! These salty, crunchy chickpeas make for a satisfying snack with none of the guilt. Makes an original appetizer, too!

Baby Bella Boats
This appetizer could not be easier to put together, especially if you have surprise visitors. I use few ingredients to let the freshness shine.

I always make extra - read on to find out what happens to the leftovers.
