My mom is a pretty picky eater, but one thing that she absolutely loves is nuts! It is always a safe bet to give her nuts as a gift. I am honestly not a huge fan, but when she came to visit us this most recent time, I knew I should make her something special. I decided to make her some Candied Pecans because I know how much she loves them, and I also knew they would be great in my pantry until the next time she came to visit. This recipe is sweet, salty and flavorful and it is perfect for enjoying as a snack, adding on top of sweet potatoes or salads or even giving to your friends as a gift around the holidays.
Gatherings and get together are so great so so many reasons, but one of the things I love most about them is DIPS! So many fall foods incorporate pumpkin, and so many fall events call for parties. This Pumpkin Dip is perfect for so many occasions this time of year! It is sweet, and creamy and goes great with graham crackers, teddy grahams or fruit. You should try this recipe out ASAP! You will love it!
Most people would consider crab dip an appetizer, but I could honestly sit down with a dish of the stuff and a sleeve of buttery crackers and call it a meal. Growing up on the east coast of Virginia made me many things, and one of those is a seafood lover through and through. My favorite type of seafood, and the one food that I would choose as my last meal, is blue crabs. I will eat crabmeat prepared just about any way, but this Chesapeake Bay Crab Dip has to be one of my favorites.
One of our favorite guilty pleasure foods is Chinese take-out. I know that it is a far cry from authentic Chinese food, but it is just so delicious! General Tso’s Chicken is the dish that I order more often than any other because the sweet, salty and spicy flavor combination is just so perfect. I decided to take those amazing flavors, and create a creamy General Tso’s Chicken dip that is easy to make and great for sharing with friends!
A good dip recipe is something that I hold on to for such a long time. Think of how many social functions dips are perfect for – football Sunday, parties of all kinds, showers, barbecues… The list really goes on and on. This Corn, Bacon and Jalapeño Dip is a fantastic creamy dip that is loaded with lots of corn, crispy bacon, cheese and the perfect amount of spice from the jalapeño. Save this recipe – you will be glad you did!
I love making and serving guacamole because it is so quick and easy to make, but it is also loaded with flavor, healthy and low carb. This Fresh Homemade Spicy Guacamole is one of my favorite appetizers to serve at parties or even just to whip up as a quick snack for my family. It’s time to pour some margaritas, grab some chips and dig in!
