Baked Mozzarella Bites
Serve this quick after-school snack to your kids as an alternative to traditional fried cheesesticks.
Sweet Chipotle Snack Mix
A glass storage jar with a locking lid is the perfect vessel to keep this homemade treat fresh or store individual servings in zip-top bags for quick backpack-friendly snacks.
