Everyone loves to start off a meal with appetizers, but they haven’t always been just a fatty addition to an oversized meal – which is a common occurrence at most any restaurant you frequent.
Appetizers have evolved through the centuries, and can be traced all the way back to ancient Greece. While still a small portion of food served prior to the main meal, they are usually filling, fried, and full of fat and calories. Let’s see where appetizers started, and bring it back there for healthier, fulfilling additions to your meal.

Unfortunately, I know a lot of people don’t take the time to have a quick breakfast which is the first mistake of your day. Don’t believe me?
Aren’t we all inherently our best chef? We know what we like, and how we like it. I find that when I make something that doesn’t turn out well, Ben and I will often go our separate ways in the kitchen and turn it into the dish that we would like. Adding our own touches to personalize the dish. To do this, we are reaching into the pages of our own cook books.
