Buffalo Chicken Wontons

These were an experiment on Super Bowl Sunday. I made buffalo chicken dip, and I had a pack of wonton wrappers in the freezer that I'd been wanting to use. So why not fill the wonton wrappers with the dip and fry them? A couple of notes about this recipe: There was an air gap… Continue reading Buffalo Chicken Wontons

Buffalo Chicken Dip

Buffalo chicken dip is one of my favorite things to make for a party. I have a few variations I make, including this one. I think this version I made is my favorite so far. I made it for the Super Bowl last weekend. My boyfriend isn't really into buffalo sauce, but he couldn't stop… Continue reading Buffalo Chicken Dip

Italian Chicken & Spinach Dip

One of my friends hosted a potluck brunch last weekend. This was originally supposed to be a filling for crescent roll spirals similar to these buffalo chicken spirals I made before. That turned out to be a disaster. I spread the filling onto the crescent roll dough, rolled it up. and it didn't hold up… Continue reading Italian Chicken & Spinach Dip

Fried Green Tomatoes

I've been having some trouble with my lower oven, and I finally had a repair person out yesterday because I'm at the end of my troubleshooting abilities. Of course I could't get it to replicate the problem when the repair person was at my house. Last time it happened, I was cooking bacon in the… Continue reading Fried Green Tomatoes

Parmesan Panko Tortellini Appetizer

I was getting together with some friends yesterday, and was trying to figure out what to bring. I really like fried ravioli and kind of had a craving. Fried food doesn't transport well, and I didn't want to smell like fried food either. I had tortellini in the refrigerator, and thought I might be able… Continue reading Parmesan Panko Tortellini Appetizer

Jalapeno Popper Corn Dip

I haven't posted in a while! Right after I made the mint chocolate chip ice cream in the previous post, our fridge died. We were without a fridge for almost 3 weeks (long story), which resulted in eating out a lot. Then we went on vacation. So now I'm back and ready for more cooking… Continue reading Jalapeno Popper Corn Dip

Deviled Eggs with Bacon Pepper Jam

  I make pretty good "regular" deviled eggs, and occasionally I like to mix it up and do something different. My bestie got me a deviled egg transporter for my birthday, which I desperately needed. The last time I transported deviled eggs to a party, it was kind of a disaster. I used the carrier… Continue reading Deviled Eggs with Bacon Pepper Jam

Buffalo Chicken Crescent Spirals

I needed to make dinner one night, and I'd forgotten to take anything out. Oops. Strangely, I had buffalo chicken dip left over from a party. (This was strange because my buffalo chicken dip usually gets scarfed down and I end up wishing I'd made more.) Anyway, back to the dinner thing. I always keep… Continue reading Buffalo Chicken Crescent Spirals
