Guacamole Recipe

Healthy Dip Recipe: French Onion Dip with Caramelized Onions & Greek Yogurt. While I probably won't be watching the Big Game this weekend, I'm not immune to the fact that this means we're heading into prime chip and dip season.

Healthy Dip Recipe: French Onion Dip with Caramelized Onions & Greek Yogurt

In honor of this, I'm excited to rescue and rethink a once famous and now somewhat neglected dip from my childhood: The French Onion Soup Dip. This is my new take on this iconic dip, which substitutes Greek yogurt for the mayo and sour cream and swaps in real onions and other aromatics for the somewhat questionable ingredients in that packet of dried French onion soup. The classic French onion soup dip recipe from my childhood involved folding a packet of dried soup mix (either Knorr or Lipton) into a container of sour cream. Cheesy Baked Black-Eyed Pea Dip. Sometimes great recipes happen by accident, like this insta-classic black-eyed pea dip.

Cheesy Baked Black-Eyed Pea Dip

Spicy Appetizer Recipe: Roasted Jalapeño & Lime Hummus

Two if you're feeling feisty. Three jalapeños and you'd better make sure there's plenty of cold beer nearby because you're talking about some serious fire. I never would have thought about adding jalapeños and limes to hummus if a friend hadn't discovered this dip at our local gourmet market and convinced me to try it. The jalapeños hit first, then came the cooling lime just when the heat of the peppers almost seemed too much. The nuttiness of the chickpeas and the creamy texture of the hummus made the perfect backdrop. OLIVEY CAESAR DRESSING. I work part-time at a grocery store, so I am aware of consumer buying trends based on season and weather.


We sell twice as much soup when it's raining out, more pre-packaged food is sold during the week for the work crowd as opposed to weekends, we'll sell out of sea salt caramels first, without question, out of all the holiday treats, and as soon as January 1st hits, the "lettuce wall," as we call it, needs to be completely replenished every hour for the resolution setters. Essential Recipe: Quick Ranch Dressing. Forget the bottled stuff.

Chimichurri Sauce Recipes from The Kitchn

Chimichurri. It dances right out of your mouth. I bet you've already paused and said it in your head more times than I've written it. If the word alone feels this good in the mouth, wait until you taste it. Baba Ghanoush (Eggplant Dip) For a long time, the idea of eggplant made me slightly queasy.

Baba Ghanoush (Eggplant Dip)

It was a weird vegetable — kind of soft, kind of bitter, unpredictably textured. Summer Snack Recipe: Creamy, Cool Herbed Yogurt Dip. It doesn't often get swelteringly hot in Seattle.

Summer Snack Recipe: Creamy, Cool Herbed Yogurt Dip

Even in the heart of the summer, we'll have a few record-setting days, but rarely more than a handful. But when I visit my mom's cabin in upstate New York, the marriage of heat and humidity can often make for pretty uncomfortable days and a loss of appetite — which is why we always have this cool, easy yogurt dip at the ready. Travel always involves adaptation to other people's food preferences, or to what's available in the region or at the nearby markets. Creamy Tofu and Green Pea Dip.

Creamy Tofu and Green Pea Dip

In this bright and zesty green dip, we combined tofu with peas and Mexican-inspired ingredients like cilantro, jalapeño, and lime. Thanksgiving Recipe: Maple-Apple Cranberry Sauce. Are you looking to cut back on refined sugar this holiday? Or perhaps you'd like to jazz things up in the cranberry department? This cranberry sauce features maple syrup, apples, and apple cider for a lovely autumnal flavor. I think I like it better than the standard version! Most cranberry sauce recipes call for sugar, which not only balances out the tartness of the cranberries but also helps to thicken the sauce. Here I combine the cranberries with chunks of sweet, pectin-rich apple as well as apple cider and maple syrup. I like my cranberry sauce on the tart side, but if you like it sweeter you can simply adjust the maple syrup to taste.

Maple-Apple Cranberry Sauce Makes about 3 cups. Essential Thanksgiving Recipe: Spiced Cranberry Sauce. Thanksgiving is less than one week away!

The deeply browned and greasy scrapings from the bottom of the roasting pan might not look like much when you first take the turkey out of the oven, but those drippings are Thanksgiving manna. Quince Chutney. I have been hoarding a platter of yellow quinces on my desk for the past few weeks, not because these knobbly fruits are especially beautiful to look at but rather as a source of deep olfactory pleasure. Tantalized by their fruity-floral aroma of pineapple, pear, and roses, I was almost convinced that cooking the quinces would be a shame ... until I got them into a pot and onto a spoon. I wanted to make something that we could enjoy for Thanksgiving next week, and so this spiced quince chutney was born.

When cooked down, the quince's dry, woody flesh takes on a delightful jammy texture and amber color. I included some plump dried cherries as a sweet complement to the quince's spicy pear-like quality, while brown sugar and apple cider vinegar give the chutney its sweet-sharp flavor.
