40 Fall Recipes We're Looking Forward to Making Slideshow. 7 Party Dips Bursting With Flavor  It's not a party without chips and dip.

7 Party Dips Bursting With Flavor 

From Chile Con Queso to Roasted Garlic Guacamole, these flavorful recipes are all serious crowd-pleasers. 1. Chile Con Queso From-scratch queso is so much better than the melted Velveeta kind! This version -- made with fresh jalapeños, Cheddar and Pepper Jack -- is rich, creamy and dangerously addictive. 2. If an empty bowl is the sign of a good dish, this dip adapted from The Barefoot Contessa Cookbook is a sure winner. 3. Mayo and sour cream have no place in this delicious dip. 4. Every party needs salsa, and this one will steal the show. 5. Homemade hummus always trumps store bought. 6. This dip may not win a beauty contest, but it's the best black bean dip I've ever tried. 7. While traditional guacamole is made with raw onions, this version is made with roasted garlic.

Germination of Palms

Palm Seed Germination [ The Collingbourne Palm Germination Method ] Anyone can grow their own palm for almost no cost.

Even the seeds of most varieties are fairly expensive and, unless you've already mastered the basics, you may be unsuccessful in growing your seeds into plants. For these reasons, I recommend starting out by growing your own date palms (Phoenix dactylifera).

Once you've got your date stones, soak them overnight in a cup of water. The Collingbourne Palm Germination Method When I first started growing my own palms from seeds I was very disappointed by my poor success rate. Note: To see a step-by-step pictorial guide to palm-seed germination, take a look at my Grow A Date From Seed page.

Soak the seeds for 24 hours (sometimes longer for very hard-coated seeds). Clean the seeds. About. The Real Crepe Cake. You may recall that a few months ago, the fearless Daring Bakers scaled Martha Stewart’s Crepe Cake Mountain.
