Bite Size Potato Skins

Ok, ok, I know that the holiday season is OVER and most of you (myself included!) are trying to eat “healthier” … hence, that is why I’ve been sharing some Whole30/Paleo recipes lately

BUT

These are really GOOD and they aren’t fried … and well, they are a vegetable so why not? Besides … it’s FRIDAY!  Oh and yeah, I bought a 15 pound bag of potatoes at Costco last weekend …

Awesome Onion Dip

This is a super yummy and easy to make appetizer for all those upcoming holiday parties …

FYI … THIS IS VERY ADDICTIVE AND YOU WILL WISH YOU HAD MADE A DOUBLE BATCH!

 

It’s been a looooong time since I made this as we were making it every weekend and both Hubby and I decided that it was a little too indulgent to make “just because it’s Saturday!” BUT now the Boat Parade Party is coming up and well, we are attending as GUEST, what better time than that to make this again! Yippee!! Continue reading “Awesome Onion Dip”

Apple Snacks

Here’s a quick snack to make that will make everyone happy!

Oh NO! It’s Everything Pumpkin season!

It’s been that since like early September!

I have a few confessions to make …

  1.  I am NOT a fan of pumpkin anything
  2.  I hold out til almost Halloween before I will have my first pumpkin beer (which I will have my first one when we get to Halloween Horror Nights!)
  3. I have ONE pumpkin recipe and even that is not a favorite …

What do you make of THAT??

BUT … Fall also brings my favorite!

APPLES!

 And I LOVE apples!

Healthy Apple Snacks

So, honestly,  a good apple needs nothing more than a nice rinsing and a little polishing and you are good to go … but sometimes, you just want to make something a little more special!

This is super easy AND guess what? It keeps the cut apples from turning brown on top of it!

Chilled Spinach Dip

It’s that time of year again where we start pulling out our all time favorite appetizers for the holiday parties!  We just had the boat parade party Saturday so it was a perfect opportunity for me to get some pics of this!

It’s a fairly simple recipe and I have yet to meet a single person who does not like this!

This is one of those things that happens behind the scenes of real life food bloggers … apparently Kitten was thinking she was supposed to be part of the photo …

ingredients

A little cropping helps out but you can still see her paw above the spinach!

Ok, here’s what you need to make this really awesome dip!

2 boxes of frozen chopped spinach, thawed

2 packages of Knorrs Vegetable Recipe Mix

1 carton of sour cream

1 can of water chestnuts, chopped

2 cups mayo

1 round loaf pupernuckle bread, hollowed and pieces torn

green onions for garnish

First things first: squeeze that spinach as dry as you can … there’s a lot of liquid in there and you need to remove as much as you can. Toss the spinach in a large bowl with the rest of the ingredients EXCEPT the green onions.

Mix everything really well in a large bowl, cover and put in the fridge to chill for at least an hour.

Bread Bowl

When ready to serve, fill up the bread bowl and serve with the torn pieces on the side for dipping. We generally grab two loaves, one for the bowl and the other we cut up and serve alongside for the dipping. Trust me, you will run out of bread if you don’t use two so keep a stash of tortilla chips and crackers on the side!

Enjoy!

Looking forward to sharing with some of these GREAT Parties … go check them out!
