{Let's Get Crockin'} Appetizers

Everyone loves apps, right? 
One of our favorite things to do is order a few at a restaurant to share instead of ordering separate meals.  
During Super Bowl Sunday, we wanted easy, delicious [and somewhat healthy] appetizers to munch on. 
These were just the ticket!
