In college I was always the girl that wanted to throw fun parties. Usually they were themed, but usually about every month my friends and I would host a party. We had gourmet build-your-own-pizza parties, all-white parties, Halloween parties, "dip yourselves in pink" parties, etc. We usually provided all of the food, and usually it was finger foods and dips, so I'm ALWAYS on the look out for some good party foods. This hot artichoke dip has always been one of my favorites. Made In . . .
When Des and I went to Disneyland last month one of our FAVORITE things we ate were the skewers at Bengal BBQ. Bengal BBQ is located right across from the Tiki Room and they serve the most delicious and fresh food. Let me tell you, it is such a welcomed treat after eating churros, corn dogs, and ice cream cones. I knew right away that I needed to re-create this at home. At the park we ordered Chieftain Chicken Skewer and the Safari Skewer. The Chieftan Chicken Skewer is a simple . . .
This may sound silly but these cheesy potato fries helped put this blog, Oh So Delicioso on the map. Years ago (2012) I pinned this recipe and while it floated around on pinterest for a few months and nothing happened one day I woke up to an email in my inbox. She said she had pinned our recipe AND featured it on her blog. Then made this comment- hello dearie! Heads up! I've featured your recipe here and as of right now your recipe has been repinned more than 1100+ times (whoot whoot) I . . .
We are major veggie lovers. My mom taught us to LOOOVE our veggies, and now all her kids do. I'm trying so hard to instill these veggie loving beliefs on my children. I make it a priority to cook a veggie every dinner and always plate them. Some of my kids may throw express unhappy feelings about vegetables but thats ok. I'll keep introducing them over and over. They'll grow to love them. Taste buds change, and so do attitudes. I plan on cultivating them into a veggie lovin fools.One tip my mom . . .
Who like's hummus? For those of you who said no, I'm willing to bet you haven't tried it, ha ha! I was scared to try it at first, swore I didn't like it, but it turns out I do! I like it a lot! I've been wanting to combine a few of my fav salad ingredients into a new hummus lately - beets and goat cheese. They have been my salad jam lately and I thought they would be wonderful together on a cracker as well. Crunchmaster As Your Dippers On the topic of crackers - I am still really enjoying . . .
Friends!! This baked beans recipe is my GREAT GRANDMA'S! A month ago my mom sent me a couple of pages of recipes from my great grandmas book, and I'm so excited to share some of these with you. First up are these baked beans. I remember my grandma always made them on our summer barbecue evenings with the family- and as a child I didn't love beans but I always loved these. I ended up changing just a few things. Their cans and proportions were a bit different back then, so I had to make the . . .
A veggie tray is a classic pot luck item, and today I wanted to share how I've been serving my veggie trays for the last several years. I'm also sharing a fresh homemade dill dip to replace that yucky bottled ranch dressing that often accompanies a vegetable tray. Individually Portioned Dill Dip If you saw my recent 7 layer dip post, you'll notice a theme with the individual portioned servings. I have found this method of serving dips to crowds to be an enormous hit! It is so convenient . . .
During summer, when the heat is unbearable, the last thing we want is a heavy meal. We turn to grilled meats and veggies, light salads and ice cold lemonade. Instead of a green salad try making this beautiful rainbow quinoa salad for your next meal or party! In all honestly I do not like raw bell peppers...but there is something about this salad. The combo of the churchy veggies and seasoned quinoa that makes it all perfectly balanced. The beans, celery and savory quinoa are perfect! I made . . .
My favorite way to eat sweet potatoes are in fry form. I love sweet potatoes in all forms with all sorts of different spices and especially with THIS lime cilantro dip. Sprialize a few sweet potatoes, toss in oil (avocado is my favorite) and seasoning salts and toss in the oven. Out comes delicious, baked curly sweet potatoes. This KitchenAid Sprializer is my new favorite kitchen tool, along with the KitchenAid MINI! We've been on a zoodles and apples kick but now we've moved on to sweet . . .
One time I asked a good friend how on earth her mother made such amazing mexi-rice. When she told me how simple it was, I couldn't believe it. What's even better, I took her famous recipe and made it one step easier! This pressure cooker mexi-rice is fast, easy and the perfect side to any mexican dish. When my friend told me her family's recipe for mexican rice, she mentioned ingredients I had never noticed while shopping. Knorr chicken boullion? "Always Knorr, and clado de tomate" I . . .
