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

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… Continue reading Garlic & Herb Whipped Potatoes

Pimento Cheese

I love pimento cheese! We had pimento cheese sandwiches quite a bit as kids. Every time I see a dish with pimento cheese on a restaurant menu (fritters, burgers, dip, etc.), I'm probably going to order it. Most stores sell pimento cheese dip in the prepared food section, but I find it hard to find… Continue reading Pimento Cheese

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

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… Continue reading Mashed Potato Casserole

Nana’s Carrot Cake

I can't take credit for this gorgeous carrot cake that occasionally appears on my header image. My spouse (at the time) made that using a family recipe. This recipe is on the thinnest piece of paper ever. It was clearly typed on a typewriter, but I have no idea how the paper didn't disintegrate when… Continue reading Nana’s Carrot Cake
