miller-150x150Last weekend, I helped my mom prepare food for a bridesmaids’ luncheon for my sister.

Showers, parties, weddings, and luncheons tend to be breeding grounds for high carb foods.

I wanted to share two fabulous low carb appetizers that my mom prepared. I must be honest; I don’t do mushrooms well but add cheese and sausage to something and YUM!!
