lightened up spinach & artichoke dip

I had to laugh yesterday when I saw that Sheila had posted spinach and artichoke dip. Because I, too, had just made one with intent to blog. It reminded me of high school when we would show up wearing matching outfits. And not just on the days when we were wearing swim team or golf…

hot taco dip

Happy New Year’s Eve Eve! I must say, NYE has never been my favorite holiday. There’s always so much hype and planning that goes into it, and somehow it never ends up being as fun or exciting as you expect. Probably the most exciting thing I’ve ever done for New Year’s was the Full Moon…

sour cream & onion dip

This weekend my family and most of the Hilton Head crew was in town visiting! I cooked a boatload of chicken riggies on Friday night, and yesterday we went to College Park for the Syracuse/Maryland football game and some tailgate fun. I love having guests! Let’s talk about being a good hostess. First, we need…

oatmeal raisin cookie dough dip

It hasn’t even been 48 hours and I’m already struggling with the absence of chocolate in my life. Sad. So let’s talk about things I love other than chocolate. Or rather, I’ll babble on and you’ll read reluctantly. FUN! Ready set go. 1) The Bachelor. I’m not even embarrassed.Β I can’t get enough. Not a huge…

spanakopita meatballs & other super bowl party foods!

I’m on cloud 9. I just spent 4 hours in my kitchen. I enjoy watching football, but I’ll be honest and admit that I’m more attracted to the food and commercials the Super Bowl has to offer. And that last night Kelly and I spent 15 minutes giggling at a YouTube video of last year’s…

easy guacamole

Maybe all guacamole is easy to make. I’m not sure- I’ve only ever made this one. Or squeezed it out of a Holy Guacamole bag. I’m sitting here swooning over Live with Kelly as she co-hosts with Daniel Radcliffe. I’m not sure that I’ve shared my ridiculous (and I mean ridiculous) obsession with Harry Potter…

swiss-bacon-scallion dip

Disclaimer: Erin wrote this before her trip so that she could post whilst travelling! She knew you’d miss her.   Things I’m concerned about regarding Thailand: 1) I leave in 48 hours and haven’t packed yet. Instead I spent a half hour watching Sophia Grace videos. I need a hype girl. 2) That I’ll have…

camp food- part 3

For the final installment of camp food I chose the dish that most embodies what camp is all about: chicken wing dip. This is the ultimate happy hour food, but I have also been known to eat it for lunch or dinner. Or make a single serving (cut the recipe in half) and eat it…

camp food- part 1

Let me give you a little vocabulary lesson. If you are not from Syracuse, you probably think of “camp” as being a week or two long getaway during the summer with annoyingly enthusiastic counselors, mandatory fun activities, and excessive amounts of bug spray and sunscreen. If you are from Syracuse you understand that the word…
