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 . . .
My Husband's brother makes these as a tradition every holiday season. I'll admit - at first I was really skeptical...especially of the name. "Spinach balls? Sounds Terrible!" Then I ate one as a courtesy. To my surprise they were delicious! I ate probably a half dozen and still wanted more! These have become one of my favorite appetizers to make...not only because they are tasty, but because they are EASY! My family likes to serve Thanksgiving dinner in the evening, but we prepare . . .
I love dip. I feel like everything is better with a little dip...veggies, chips, fruit, french fries...pretty much everything! So naturally - with pumpkin season upon us, I had to throw a pumpkin pie dip into the mix. Pumpkin Pie Dip For Your Holiday Spread This pumpkin pie dip is a PERFECT appetizer for your Halloween or Thanksgiving spread this year! It pairs perfectly with apple slices, pear slices, and my personal favorite - gingersnap cookies! We have a stellar ginger cookie . . .
Halloween is my verrrrrrry favorite holiday!!! I love the decorations, the costumes, and the food! Today I want to share a treat that whipped up for our little Halloween Party. I call it Candy Corn Popcorn - but really it is a twist on our Marshmallow Popcorn Recipe. Find the recipe HERE, or check out the Halloween version below. Candy Corn, Love It Or Hate It In all reality, I hate candy corn. There are candy corn lovers, and there are candy corn haters. I fall into that hate . . .
I first ate these soft, fluffy, garlic bread sticks with a steaming hot bowl of beef stew. Just thinking of the dinner at Ashlees house warms my heart. Why does comfort food do that to you? The smell of homemade bread, chicken noodle soup, mac n cheese....you can help but become nostalgic. A testament to how powerful food can be in our lives right? SO, while my bread sticks are rising right now, I am going to share this recipe with you. These bread sticks are simple and fast. I love to . . .
These creamy baked chicken taquitos are a staple in our house. We LOVE them. I love how easy it is, how fresh it is, how I always seem to have the ingredients around so when I'm in a pinch or dumbfounded as to what to make for dinner I have this as a backup. The kids not only help eat it but love to help make them. It's full of tender chicken, a little bit of cream cheese, spices and a little more cheese. With a crunchy, crispy, salty crust. Creamy Chicken Taquito Filling There are several . . .
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 . . .
Have I ever told you that I hate tomatoes and onions? I'm sure I have. Because of this aversion I have always steered clear of the classic seven layer dip, but as I've gotten older I've become a little braver and now eat some dishes with tomato and onion. When I tasted seven layer dip I was floored and I loved it! How could I love tomatoes? I don't know, but I know that seven layer dip is about as delicious as it comes.
