    I want to eat every one of these appetizers! The cheesy baked spinach artichoke dish especially 🙂 and avocado rice paper rolls!! Do you think you could replace the chicken with tofu?

    Each and every one of these appetizers looks incredibly scrumptious! I have pinned your Baked Cheese Fondue so many times! A crowd favorite, for sure. And, I have pinned others like your Carmelized Onion BBQ Chicken Dip. YUM! Time to make both as football season nears an exciting end with the Super Bowl. Thanks for sharing, girl. Once again…Happy New Year!
