Cracker Snacks 4 College Cooking

Simple makes the Holidays better--food, gifts, parties, gatherings--keep it simple, please! 


If your family throws a shin-dig for the neighborhood lend a helping hand by prepping these flavorbombs for the celebrations. Don't worry about the clean-up...because there won't be any! 

As a side, your parents will think you are "all grown up"; or, that "the aliens abducted you"--take your pick! Either way, your contribution will make whatever event tastier!

For the Triscuit Caprese, you can certainly use fresh tomatoes if you are pressed for time, but making these little appetizers with the Roasted Tomatoes from Ina Garten makes these bites exceptional!!
