Check out the four recipes below, hit the grocery stores this morning for the ingredients you need, and you’ll be able to majorly impress your fellow guests!

An old standby comfort food, sure to be a hit! If the ingredients look a little suspicious (potato chips? Seriously?) trust us—the recipe is filling, good for you, and delicious! Get the recipe here!
Red Velvet Insanity Cupcakes
If you don’t trust yourself around the dessert buffets, bring your own! It will taste so sinfully indulgent, no one will know they aren’t loaded with sugar or fat grams! Get the recipe here.
