Tasty Low fat/Low calorie version of the bar room favorite
A tasty variation on the traditional popper. My hubby likes these for superbowl sunday. You can also vary the recipe by adding 2 -4 T fat free sharp cheddar shreds to the cream cheese mixture. Also you can use panko crumbs for a crispier coating. Make these at least once before serving to company, as it takes a knack to get them to come out nice looking.Submitted by KEEYAHWE
I threw this together adlibing seasoning with the basic tahini to garbanzo ratio from the joy of cooking. This is so easy. And so cheap, for $1 i can buy 6 pita loafs and 78Cents I can get a can of garbanzo beans. It's a great pick me up before or after an aerobic workout. It also makes for a great snack, or even a very low calorie lunch or dinner. Once you try homemade hummus you will NEVER shell out $3 for prepackaged again.Submitted by ANDICOONS
I learned how to make hummus from the middle eastern immigrant mother of one of my first boyfriends. She didn't use measuring, just kept adding and tasting till it was spicy and smooth, more like a light, creamy but slightly runny sauce than the paste that you can buy. At that consistency, it's a great, quick sauce for whole grain pasta with chopped calamata olive or capers, chopped fresh parsley and chopped fresh tomato. Toss a few whole garbanzos over it, and a final squeeze of fresh lemon juice. Submitted by CCKELLY3
This is the most basic of the spreads. You can find a variation of this recipe in almost any grocery store, but 95 percent of them are made with either olive oil or tahini (sesame paste), which pushes up the fat content. Your best bet is to take three minutes and make a batch on Sunday that will last you for the week.

Just over 7 years ago, I found a recipe for bruschetta online and surprised my husband, then my new boyfriend, with it for Valentine's day. We ate so much of this amazing bruschetta that we hardly had enough room for dessert.
We bring this recipe out for special events, family outings, and sometimes just for dinner for the two of us. So whether this is your full meal or simply an appetizer, buon appetito!Submitted by TERRIFICLYFIT
