Berry Salsa

Berry Salsa

I needed something to serve with a bag of cinnamon sugar pita chips I had lying around, but I didn’t want this something to venture too far over into dessert territory because I wanted to serve it as an appetizer. The first thing that kept popping in my head was a cheesecake dip, but that…

Deconstructed (and Lightened) Jalapeño Popper Dip

Deconstructed (and Lightened) Jalapeño Popper Dip

Hit #1 from our Super Bowl party appetizers. At the party we went to, everyone was asked to bring an appetizer to watch the big game. Normally I’d bring dessert, but a long standing and fattening tradition at the Super Bowl party we went to is Super Bowl Sundaes. Literally there were 5 kinds of…

Roasted Onion & Shallot Dip

Roasted Onion & Shallot Dip

French onion dip is one of those things you usually buy prepackaged for parties and get togethers, but the homemade version is so much better tasting and better for your heart. You can spend a good while standing over the stove caramelizing onions and shallots on the stove. Or you can roast them as we…

Fried Sage Meatballs + Blue Cheese Avocado Dip

Fried Sage Meatballs + Blue Cheese Avocado Dip

No football for us today as a result of our Thanksgiving victory! But for one of the earlier Texans game this season, we decided to try our hand at a bit of deep frying. We had our Italian friend over to watch, so we wanted to incorporate a bit of Italian cuisine in too. So,…

Herbed White Bean Hummus

Herbed White Bean Hummus

We went out to dinner at a new restaurant in Bellevue that specializes in Neapolitan pizza. The pizzas were good, but nothing spectacular. It’s no Serious Pie. The best thing we ate was the appetizer— a white bean dip kicked up a notch with rosemary. The next day we were looking for a light and…

Buffalo Chicken Dip

Buffalo Chicken Dip

I’d never heard of buffalo chicken dip until recently, but lately it’s been all the rage, including being featured on a recent episode of ABC’s Shark Tank. The original recipe comes from Frank’s Red Hot, and it really does include all of the important elements of a chicken wing, but we made some modifications based…

Pepperoni Pizza Dip

Pepperoni Pizza Dip

Pizza dip is a delicious party snack and really incorporates all of the flavors of pizza. I saw a million different recipes last year and remembered that basically this dip is a creamy bottom layer topped with marinara sauce, cheese, and any pizza toppings you wish. Of course I chose pepperoni as my main pizza…

In-N-Out Animal Style Sauce

In-N-Out Animal Style Sauce

Now that June has rolled around, I think this is the official start of burger grilling season— something I’m sure Dustin and I will be doing quite a bit this summer. A few weeks ago when we were having nice weather, we cooked up a fantastic patty with beef and ground pork with our neighbors.…

Homemade Hummus

Homemade Hummus

I finally did it! I finally made homemade hummus the right way. We bought dry garbanzo beans and soaked them over night before following this popular hummus recipe by Mark Bittman on Epicurious. The taste was awesome by taking the extra step to soak the beans, but we still can’t get the creamy texture of…

Lower Fat Spinach and Artichoke Dip

Lower Fat Spinach and Artichoke Dip

I find the name for this dip amusing. With two vegetables in the name it has to be healthy, right? Spinach and artichoke dip is really a misnomer. The name should really be cream cheese and sour cream and mozzarella dip, as the spinach and artichokes are really secondary to all of that creamy, fatty…
