2 Healthy and delicious Appetizers Hip2Save

Yummy and healthy appetizers alert! These crowd-pleasing appetizers are perfect for any BBQ or meal that you may be hosting; and the best part – you don’t have to turn on the oven as no baking is required!

Mini Bell Peppers and Hummus

Mini Bell Peppers with Hummus

Cut mini bell peppers in half and use a pastry bag and tip (or cut a hole in the corner of a Ziploc bag!) to pipe on your favorite hummus for an easy and beautiful presentation. Make a pan of these ahead of time, cover, and store in the fridge until ready to serve.

Caprese Salad on a Stick

Caprese Salad on a Stick

For this easy and fun appetizer, simply take a toothpick and skewer a grape tomato, basil leaf, and small piece of fresh mozzarella for a delicious bite size Caprese salad! Make a plateful because these tend to go fast! 🙂 Drizzle olive oil and balsamic vinegar in a small bowl so guests can dip their bite if they prefer. Again, these can be assembled ahead of time for convenience. These fancy fork looking skewers pictured above can be found at your local party supply store, but regular toothpicks work great too!

Side note: I like buying these veggies at Costco – the bags of mini bell peppers, larg tubs of hummus, fresh mozzarella, and tomatoes are priced really well. Enjoy 🙂

What is the HIP List?

Have you ever had moments when you're either out of time or out of printer ink, or both, and you really want to keep track of a "Hip" deal or print a valuable coupon in the next day or two? Or what do you do when an outstanding, but pricey, deal is posted and you want to save it for discussion with your significant other? Well, now you're in luck! No more searching through pages of posts to find the coupon or the deal. Simply add the post to your HIP List and access it at your convenience.

How Does the HIP List Work?

It's easy! To use this feature, you first must head on over here and register and log into your account. Whenever you find a great deal that you want to come back later to, just click on the HIP List icon located on each post (see images below) and the information will be saved in your account.


When logged into your account, you will then see your HIP List on every page.


If you're wanting to print a certain deal, article, or the Weekly Store Matchups from your HIP list, click on the small blue printer icon in the upper right corner of the HIP list. That will allow you to customize the information that you want or don't want to include in your HIP list so you're only printing the information that's most important to you!


If there are deals that you are not interested in keeping on your list, just click on the minus button to remove it.


Now, just print your customized HIP list whenever you're ready to go shopping and snag some "Hip" deals!
