What could be better than a beautiful bounty of fresh green spring vegetables? Said bounty coupled with cheese and served in dip form, obviously!
Get your dip hand strong cause this guy is creamy, cheesy, zippy and the perfect way to pretend to get your veggies.
Wings are an integral part of the football watching experience, and since there are two games this weekend, and two teams emerging victorious and heading to the big dance, it’s so obvious that you need two wing recipes for Conference Championship Sunday.
I’m hoping the Super Bowl means the 49ers and Ravens are throwing down, but that’s neither here nor there – ON TO THE WINGS!
Curry, you fabulous spice, why must I always sleep on my love for you? Every time I add this fabulous powder to a dish I’m reminded of my love of Indian cuisine, and my need to eat it more often.
If you’re not crazy for curry like me, may I inform you that curry is said to prevent certain diseases like colon cancer and Alzheimer’s. If that’s not enough… it’s claimed to be one of the most powerful aphrodisiacs, wink, wink.
Stumbling upon Ina whipping up these nuts one day, I knew I had to bring them to the holiday party. My only complaint… where’s the booze girl? I added bourbon to mine, and a few tablespoons of Vermont Maple Liquer Sapling. If you can find this in your area… get it, it’s amazing!
This nuts pack some serious punch with the chipotle powder and an unexpected depth of flavor from rosemary and bourbon. They’re super yummy… make two batches, they’d make a great present for anyone not allergic to nuts… and/or awesomeness!
I’ve devised a scale to be used with dip related food items… from now on they’ll be rated from “eh”, decent, good to – insights mindless addictive dunking behavior.
This dip would fall into the latter category. Creamy, funky, delicious and slightly out of the ordinary – you might wanna make two batches.
And the gruyère… oh the gruyère. Let’s not relegate this delicious cheese to French onion soup my friends. He should be making far more appearances, and this is the perfect way to spotlight his goodness.
The other added bonus of this dip, your house will smell of onions and bacon for the entire day, should that be something you’re in to.
“Hey Napoleon, gimme some of your tots!” “No, go find your own.”
(Like any recipe with tater tots could be complete without a Napoleon Dynamite reference!)
Warning – this dish is ridiculous! Warning – this dish is DELCIOUS!
If the idea of using tater tots instead of tortilla chips for your nachos doesn’t appeal to you, all I can say is don’t knock it till you try it.
No matter where I dine, I have a hard time staying away from calamari and crab wantons/rangoons, in theory, they should rock. Inevitably… they usually suck! I’m a glutton for punishment, but I’m also hopeful that a restaurant somewhere will get these delights right.
In the meantime, I’ll just crush them at home, with killer results!
The BLT – talk about an all-star, Pro-Sandwich Hall of Famer! Now add dairy in two lovely forms (cream cheese and sour cream), turn it into a dip, and we’ve got a serious football party!
This recipe also includes one of our other favorite cooking words… easy! The only part that will slow you down is the shredding. Grab some already shredded cheese, a bag of shredded Iceberg and you’re good to go. Enlist the help of a chopper for the tomatoes, and you’ve got a dip that comes together in a matter of minutes.
You could switch up the spices or the cheeses to your liking. Hey, it’s football season, call an audible. Without my boy P-Mann around this year, I’m more than making up for it in the kitchen!
Boxed macaroni and cheese is one of the most nostalgic foods on the planet. I’m certain everyone has a childhood memory that involves that blue box of cheesy love. For me, my memory involves my grandmother. Sundays after church, she usually whipped up a box and served it with bread, apple butter, and some sort of canned veggie… how nutritious!
For some reason no other boxed mac tasted like hers. I don’t know if she used some magical margarine or fresh off the utter milk, but I miss it.
I swore to myself that I’d keep away from the dips on these Football-food-themed posts, for as long as I could… I caved! Let’s face it, dips and football watching are a match made in heaven.
This dip is spicy, creamy, unexpected, and most importantly, easy to make! You throw it all together and a beautiful dip is born. Poppers in dip form?! YES, please!
