Spinach Artichoke Dip

Spinach Artichoke Dip

If Spinach Artichoke Dip is involved then you can count me in people! It’s pretty much one of my main weaknesses. I just can’t say no to this luscious, creamy, absolutely delicious dip. I’ve tried all the recipes, the restaurant knock offs, the crockpot versions, […]

Last Minute Eggnog Dip

Last Minute Eggnog Dip

Alright! This one is for all you last minute, late to the party, Christmas procrastinators. You know who you are! You still have presents to wrap or maybe even a couple left to buy. Hey, it happens! I get it. No judgement. I’m here for you. It doesn’t matter if you’re hosting the party or just attending, this is the perfect recipe to have up your sleeve. It only requires 7 simple ingredients, 1 bowl, and about 5 minutes of your time to make. Seriously!! Could it get any easier??? Oh and did I mention it’s deliciously addicting?!? Time to handle this Christmas stuff like the boss that you are!

Here’s all you’ll need: cream cheese, white sugar, powdered sugar, eggnog, nutmeg, rum extract, and something to dip (think Nella wafers, graham crackers, or anything cookie like).

Step One: Throw this together real quick. Step 2: Pretend you’ve been planning this for months. Step 3: Receive endless compliments.

But seriously dump everything (but the cookies) in the bowl. For real. Every single ingredient. One bowl.

Mix on medium for 2 minutes or until smooth. I put the until smooth just in case, but really 2 minutes should be plenty.

This is what I mean by until smooth. It should look like this….and BAM! You’re done!! No really! So I’m pretty sure this is the easiest possible recipe you can make! But it’s also SOOO good!!! You HAVE to try it!! Also no need to break out the Kitchen Aid. My mini hand blender broke and it’s taking 4-EVAAAAA for the new one to get here!!! But I would totally use a hand mixer for this recipe under normal circumstances.

Serve with Nella Wafers…..or graham crackers or Jingles or even pretzels would be great! Work with what you got!! Oh and I would totally wait til after the party to wash the bowl. Just saying! Merry Christmas!!! (BTW…this serving platter is just a $3.99 Santa bowl from the Christmas Tree Shoppes sitting on top of a Dollar Store plate. Like I said……..work with what ya got!!)

Colorful Caprese Salad Kebabs

Colorful Caprese Salad Kebabs

This recipe is EVERYTHING!!! It’s 5 ingredients, it’s no bake, it’s simple, it’s easy to whip up, it can be made ahead of time, it’s impressive, it’s a crowd pleasing favorite, and it’s so versatile! You can bring it on a summer picnic in the park, serve at your fourth of july party, or even just pack it in your lunchbox for a healthy snack on the go! Caprese salads are so delicious to begin with…the ripeness and juiciness of the tomatoes, the texture and flavor of the mozzarella, and the way the fresh basil perfectly blends it all together…Mmm!! I love them. I really could eat these any place, any time. Like seriously!! Turning them into kebabs just makes it even more fun to eat!  So I’m going to dedicate this one to all of the kitchen newbies out there. I promise, you cannot mess this one up. Next time you are asked to bring a dish to a party, don’t run to the store and buy the pre made whatever you planned on bringing. Make this one instead! It’s a surefire way to really wow the crowd!! Oh and…just be sure to make enough….these will go fast!!

Here’s all you’ll need: Cherry or grape tomatoes, marinated mozzarella, basil, olive oil, balsamic vinegar, and shish kebab skewers. (The tomatoes and mozzarella pictured are enough to make a double batch. The recipe is for a single batch. )

Rinse tomatoes and basil. Is there anything that’s better than fresh tomatoes in the summer?!? I mean besides THIS recipe!

Thread a tomato onto the skewer. Then add the basil, and the mozzarella. Try not to eat all the cheese as you’re assembling! (talking to myself obviously!!) Some of the basil leaves were gigantic so I cut them in half, but it’s all personal preference.


Now do it again. Keep repeating the pattern until you run out of room on the skewer. See! I told you this was an easy one!!


They look beautiful already but we’re going to take it up a notch and add a light dressing! This dish is so colorful! (and flavorful too! Just wait til you try it!)

Add olive oil and balsamic vinegar to a small container with a lid.


Shake it up to combine!


Drizzle over kebabs and serve! Really that’s it! If I don’t plan on serving them right away, I toss them in the refrigerator and add the dressing right before serving. Really wishing I hadn’t eaten the rest of the cheese right now so I could make some more!!!
