Spreads, Dips, & Dressings

Easy Apple Dip

October 12, 2012

I love fruit dips. Especially the ones you can buy for apples in the Fall time. Well, you can buy it all year long, but if you’re like me, you save that special treat for the Fall. You know what I mean right? Those plastic containers of Caramel Apple Dip usually sold by produce? Yeaaaa, […]

Creamy Herbed Spinach Dip

July 5, 2012

I don’t eat enough vegetables. I just don’t. Not nearly the “5 to 9” that they recommend. It makes me sad : ( Especially since I used to major in nutrition… so I am always looking for new ways to make vegetables more appealing to me and somehow include them more in my diet. Usually […]

Creamy Avocado Ranch Dressing

June 22, 2012

Personally, I don’t like salads very much. They are probably my least favorite side dish to serve with dinner.

Garlic Bread

March 23, 2012

Mmmmmm, Garlic Bread…. Who can say no to a nice thick slice of garlic bread alongside there pasta? It’s almost mandatory. Well, I suppose if you’re dieting you try and avoid the accompaniment. Can’t say I blame you. But seriously, if I don’t serve bread along side my pasta, it just throws the whole meal […]

Buffalo Chicken Dip

January 18, 2012

I have a confession to make. I don’t like chicken wings. I don’t even like “buffalo chicken” as a flavor for any other kind of dish. Most of you are probably appalled with me… but I’ve mentioned before that I have this weird meat thing. That I really only eat chicken breast and when I do I have to […]
