Quick and Easy Caprese Bites

Is there anything better than fresh mozzarella? This recipe is insanely easy….and so addictive! Whenever I serve these at a party they are gone in the blink of an eye! During the summer I make these at least once a week, it’s so simple but so delicious. Keeping them bite size makes this a really easy dish to serve and eat, no fork or knife needed!

Ingredients:

1 container cherry tomatoes

1 container pearl mozzarella

1 bunch basil

¼ cup balsamic vinegar

caprese1

Directions:

Halve the tomatoes and mozzarella. Tear basil into bite sized pieces. Layer tomato, basil and mozzarella- skewer with a toothpick. Easiest recipe ever!

Serve with balsamic vinegar. You can either drizzle the vinegar on top of the bites, or serve it on the side so people can serve themselves.

Game Day Buffalo Wings in the Crockpot

I am not a sports fan in the least, but I do enjoy snacking and socializing when a game is on. Buffalo wings are one of my favorite, but deep fried chicken is hardly a heathy choice. Instead of frying, this recipe uses the slow cooker to create a buffalo wing with plenty of flavor! If you want your wings crispy you can broil them for a minute once they are cooked and seasoned.

3 pound bag of frozen chicken wings

1 cup Frank’s Red Hot Wing Sauce

1 Tablespoon olive oil

Spray olive oil on the bottom of your slow cooker and place chicken wings in for 2 hours on high. Once wings are cooked, coat with Frank’s Red Hot sauce and cook for an additional 30-40 minutes in the slow cooker. Serve with blue cheese dressing and fresh cut vegetables.
