Warm Onion & Cheddar Dip

I was making braised short rib risotto on Christmas, but wanted to put out some snacks beforehand. I had a Costco cheese flight that everyone has been raving about (yes, it was amazing), along with some salami and cherry honey. I thought a warm dip would be nice to serve, too, but this was a

Italian Chicken & Spinach 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

Garlic & Herb Whipped Potatoes

garlic & herb whipped potatoes

I served these under braised short ribs on Christmas. I went heavier on the red wine and lighter on the beef stock than what I have previously done for braised short ribs, so I will have to post that recipe soon, too. I also made these on New Year’s Day using a different flavor of

No-Name Southwestern/Tex-Mex Dip That Does Not Photograph Well

One of the struggles of being a food blogger is having to get good photos of the things I make. Nobody is going to want to try a recipe if the dish looks gross in the photos! Sometimes, though, I either forget to take a picture, or even worse, something is horribly un-photogenic. I had

Buffalo Chicken Dip

Buffalo chicken dip

Note: There is a more recent version of this recipe here. I first made this a couple of years ago, and it’s probably the most requested thing for me to bring to parties (or serve as an appetizer when I’m having a party). It’s really simple, but always a hit. If I’m taking it to

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

Mashed Potato Casserole

Someone gave me a recipe for a twice baked potato casserole. I liked the concept of a twice baked potato casserole because you don’t have to fool with re-stuffing the potato skins. I was planning to make that, but I didn’t have the right potatoes. Plus, that recipe didn’t have cream cheese, and I decided
