I love making dips, do you? I find that there are just so many wonderful recipes and I sometimes would just rather eat dips than a dinner. So I decided to have a dip party dinner. It was just family.  I asked everyone to bring a dip. They had to tell me what they were bringing so there would not be duplicates. 

I decided to make this BLT Dip. The best part about the dip is that it is best to make it the night before. My kind of dip.

Since I had never made this before, I checked reviews. The original recipe calls for 2 pounds of bacon. I was having a hard time seeing that much bacon being used.  After reading the reviews, I took suggestions from several and came up with mine. 

I only used 1 pound of bacon and that was plenty. I also used Rotel tomatoes with green chilies although you can use fresh tomatoes. (that's what the recipe calls for) Just make sure you drain the Rotel very well.  

I cut the bacon into sections so it would cook faster. One person used real bacon bits. That's your choice. I saved some bacon and Rotel tomatoes to put on top.

Aside from cooking the bacon, the recipe is rather easy. Mix mayo, sour cream, bacon, Rotel tomatoes and green onions together and chill over night. Serve with crackers, chips, or my favorite Stacies Chips. 

Everyone loved it and wanted the recipe. It is definitely a keeper. This would be great for the 4th of July.

Cheesy Herbed Pull-Apart Biscuits with Spinach-Artichoke Dip

Cheesy Herbed Pull-Apart Biscuits with Spinach-Artichoke Dip

Although Easter is over, I wanted to share with you an appetizer I made for that day. It was so tasty and a big hit. I set it out and fixed a plate for my in-laws. When I went in to get some for myself,  it was almost gone. It was a huge success. 

This is NOT an Easter dish but one you can make anytime. I actually made it that morning and then put it in the fridge and didn't bake it until the afternoon.

Burger Stuffed Portobello Mushrooms

Burger Stuffed Portobello Mushrooms

On Saturday, we headed off to the mushroom plant. You might remember that I told you, we have a mushroom plant near me and you can get these beautiful portobello mushrooms for cheap ( a paper bag filled to the top with about 20-23 mushrooms for $2).  We bought several bags,  since hubby takes them to our friends when he goes back to work. 
While we were there, the girl that checked us out told me that someone brought her some mushrooms that were stuffed as a burger.  I thought they sounded great so I looked online for recipes. I found a few but none really appealed to me so I took a little from one and some from another to make my own.

Kickin Buffalo Chicken Nachos

Nachos are great as an appetizer, but what about for dinner.  When my husband and I go out, sometimes we get a couple of appetizers to share for dinner. So when I saw this recipe, I thought why not for dinner.

Great Game Day Appetizer - on the Lighter Side

With the Super Bowl right around the corner, snacks are on our mind. My problem with snacks are that they can be high in calories. So why not make something that is healthier. 

How about Chipotle and Black Bean Guacamole?

3 Ingredient Tuna Spread

Now don't let the fact that this is made with tuna fish turn you off. Most people don't even know that it contains tuna fish. They always ask "what is in this?" It is a quick and easy spread that goes great on crackers. My favorite is triscuits.
