Caprese Salad is something I make all the time, I love it, my kids love it. We love it in just about any way shape and form. The salty fresh tomatoes, soft mozzarella, and chopped basil. These flavors equal perfection. We've recently been making melty caprese sammies. Now the sammies have evolved into this hot and melty caprese dip. How to make caprese dip The beautiful think about this dip (beside how killer good it is!) is that is only calls for a few ingredients. Each ingredient is so . . .
This last week I took this lentil bruschetta to a few parties- each time nervous that people would look at it and run away (let's face it these lentils are not the most beautiful creatures on Earth...) but instead I received the opposite reaction! Every one LOVED it. I received so many comments and even texts asking for the recipe afterwards. SO so happy this was a major hit. I have every confidence that when you make this you will love it and everyone you share it with will love it . . .
My dear friend Erin, years ago, invited me to a cookie exchange during the holidays. At this gathering we were served the most delicious dip - Jalapeño Popper Dip. It was warm, creamy, with a little kick, and served alongside tortilla chips and fritos. Since that day, Erin has served these delicious dips at many get togethers - fight nights, football games, and bbqs. Perfect For A Party So when I asked her what I should take to my recent bunco night she instantly suggested . . .
This Cranberry Almond Dressing is how my Mom does stuffing. Stuffing is my favorite side dish at a holiday meal. I love the savory flavors, and the moist yet firm texture. The ingredients that my mom includes in the dressing make it extra special and different than your run of the mill stove top stuffing. Semi Homemade This recipe uses boxed stuffing, so it is semi-homemade, but just as tasty as the real deal. The made from scratch stuffing recipe on this blog is AMAZING and . . .
These candied pecans have been on here for a long while, they're buried way back in the archives. Just because they're buried doesn't mean I don't make them all the time! They are one of our family favorites. They're perfect all year around but I find them especially festive during the holidays. The uses for candied pecans are endless! I typically love to make the for this pear salad, but they are so delicious on their own that sometimes they dont even make it to the salad before we eat . . .
A few year ago my husband and I took an adult only getaway to Las Vegas. My mom graciously flew out from Utah to spend some one on one time with our son and to let us have a mini-vacation. Before I left she whipped up this chewy trail mix for our drive out to Vegas. Lots Of Good For You Ingredients This mix is full of things that are super good for you, so you don't feel guilty chowing down on it! Almonds, cranberries, and lots of fiber! I was skeptical with ingredients like Kashi Go . . .
Last year my mother in law told me about this tasty little appetizer. So when we hosted a Christmas party I whipped up this cream cheese pesto spread and it was completely gone by the end of the night. It was so simple and so tasty, that I had to make it again this year when we attended an ugly sweater party. I got so many compliments and questions on this easy dish that I decided to share it here with you guys. Only 4 Ingredients I really love recipes that are simple, have minimal . . .
This salsa is not what you are thinking. It is sweet, full of fruit, with a light tasty glaze. Not only is this sweet fruit salsa yummy with cinnamon sugar chips it would be great atop waffles, or atop a sugar cookie spread with cream cheese frosting. I've served this at numerous parties and functions and I ALWAYS get asked for the recipe over and over again. If you know how to chop a few apples, you can pull this recipe off like a pro. This is one of those recipes that my family . . .
Cranberry salsa has become my go-to recipe for winter. I love bringing it to all parties, to all family gatherings, for appetizers or snacking. I LOVE this cranberry salsa. Cranberry Salsa I love that it is full of rich red cranberries (full of all their healthy vitamins) I love that it is full of fresh veggies and flavors. Pair it with creamy cheese and gourmet crackers. The last time I made this cranberry salsa I added to a large cheese plate with several different crackers, . . .
This is a recipe I've been making for so long. Im pretty sure it happened because I had some leftover honey butter from making a pan of corn bread and then decided to toss some of the honey butter combo in with the carrots. I had had a butter and syrup combo before so I knew carrots would taste delicious with this sweet buttery combo. It has been a favorite in our house, a staple. More often than not my kids have to have their carrots this way than any other way. Tital Peeler I LOVE this . . .
