Healthy Entertaining Recipes - Baked Potato Bites

I Love entertaining and am always looking for little finger foods while trying to keep it somewhat healthy.  Most things are dips which are heavy on Fatty cheeses and meats or things like Ranch dressing.  So I have been trying to incorporate veggies with low fat options.  These particular little baked potato bites are made with Reduced Fat Sour Cream and topped with Chives.  First I scooped a little out of the tops to make a well for the sour cream to sit in.  Then I lightly applied Olive Oil to the potatoes and baked them for 10-15 minutes.  I let the potatoes cool slightly so the sour cream wouldn't melt.  Added the sour cream to a piping bag and added a Wilton #1 decorating tip to make them look extra purrty :)

I am so thrilled to be typing this right now and it's a little over due.  But sometimes life carries us away, right??  Well I wanted to post about a message I received on Facebook in the beginning of August from Juicy Lucy's a cold pressed juice bar with two locations in NYC.  She found my Pineapple, Cilantro, Jalapeno Juice Recipe and wanted to put it on her shelves :)  I know, so exciting!!  So here it is, all bottled up and ready to go!  I can't wait to go to NYC in December and try it, I will be posting pictures about that trip too.  If you live in or near NYC stop in and give it a try and then tell me what you think ;)  Check out her locations here!  Jucy Lucy's NYC
