Skinny Taco Dip

Skinny Taco Dip
A must have at every large get together: birthdays, football, holidays – this dip always disappears! This is my daughter Karina's favorite dip, which she has nicknamed "the stuff". It's easy to prepare and everyone always wants the recipe when they try it. Serve it at your next party with your favorite baked tortilla chips and play around with the toppings – try jalapeños, scallions or avocados.

A Gold Medal-Worthy Grilled Cheese Grilled cheese is my jam. When I was younger, my dad would make my sister and me a grilled cheese sandwich every day after our morning swim practice. It was basically the best treat in the world. Stuffed with Colby jack cheese and buttered to perfection, my dad would slice it in half on a diagonal, rather than a boring down-the-middle cut, and we would gobble it up with big smiles on our faces. But those were my picky eater days. Now I stuff my grilled cheese sandwiches with lots of fun ingredients. Pizza Dip Over the last while I have slowly been trying to free up some space in my freezer and I recently came across some pizza sauce that I had left over after making a pizza a while back. As soon as I stumbled upon it I remembered thinking that I had wanted to use it to make a hot cheesy pizza dip when I put it in the freezer. Once I had that thought there was no turning back and I was already dreaming up recipes for the dip. At first I was just going to follow my standard hot cheese dip template where I just mix everything up, pour it into a dish and bake it until the cheese is melted, golden brown and bubbling but then I had another idea. I wanted to top the dip with slices of pepperoni but my normal dip baking dish is small and it would only allow for about three slices of pepperoni to go on top so I needed something bigger, like a pie plate.

cinnamon tortilla chips with fruit salsa Sophistireaders, I’d like you to meet Marcia (pronounced Mar-see-ah, not Marsha, Marsha, Marsha!). She’s the friend who helped me try my failed Turkish Delight recipe back in December. For ages, she’s been telling me about these cinnamon tortilla chips with strawberry pineapple salsa and a sweet glaze she had at a party once and then adapted herself.

Go ahead, take a shot of salad dressing. I got my first taste of this salad dressing when a dear friend brought it over with a meal she had made for my crew right after Nola was born. From the moment the heavenly concoction hit my lips, I wanted to drink it right out of it’s re-purposed glass bottle. Since asking begging her for the recipe, I’ve probably made it weekly. And I make it for everyone I know.

17 pounds in two weeks, without much effort by kalima on Lose 10 pounds on 43 Things Breakfast is truly the most important meal of the day; not in food amount, but because it’s the first food intake, it defines how you start your day. Now, when you write that your stomach feels awful, what do you mean exactly? Are you hungry? Homemade Peanut Butter Once you make peanut butter at home, it will be very difficult to get excited about storebought peanut butter ever again. Not that eating peanut butter of any kind would ever be a chore because I love it so, but homemade peanut butter is a delicacy. And a nearly effortless delicacy at that. It’s akin to savoring a piece of high-end dark chocolate that’s rich and pure, uncomplicated by fillers, additives, or ingredients that have no place being in chocolate; and then grabbing a milk chocolate bar in the checkout line at the grocery store, which is likely a combination of tasteless, grainy, and waxy. Apples and oranges.

FRANK'S® REDHOT® BUFFALO CHICKEN DIP Recipe Reviewed on 05/30/2012 I love this recipe. My only deviation is to use boneless, skinless chicken thighs in place of canned chicken. I marinate 4-5 thighs in franks original for about an hour and bake until done.
