i used to always make tons and tons of holiday cookies, and i've become quite proficient at baking cookies and cakes etc for holiday gatherings and work pot lucks.
So most of the time i contribute a dessert dish.
and the truth is that i LIKE to bake and be in the kitchen.
but after this year, i don't think i'm going to bake sweets for the holidays because i eat too much!
esp. cookies. becuase you can just keep eating another and another etc.
so i'm wondering if anyone has any good healthy appetizer recipes to share. maybe like a good cocktail shrimp recipe or veggie dip or a salad.
preferably something with low carb, since carbs always seem to trigger bingeing in me.
i feel so blah right now after making cookies and sampling too many
that i got to thinking why do i do this to myself during the holidays when they are supposed to be something to enjoy?
I feel better when i eat well, so why not celebrate with whole fresh foods that make me feel alive?
any ideas or suggestions?
