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. Since this pizza dip is in the form of a pizza, you could top it with any of your favourite pizza toppings. Pizza Dip Servings: makes 4 servings Related:  Comfort Food Recipes

Chili Cheesecake Preheat the oven to 325 degrees. In a medium bowl, combine the tortilla chips and butter. Press into the bottom of a 9-inch springform pan. In a large bowl, blend the cream cheese, eggs, chili powder and cumin with a mixer. Spread the sour cream over the top and decorate with the tomatoes, green onions, black olives and cilantro. This can be prepared 1 day in advance. *Simply Scratch*: Parmesan Garlic Bread: Last week was a busy week filled with a field trip to the zoo sandwiched by 3 twelve hour shifts. By Friday I was extremely happy for the weekend to arrive. Although Pat worked late, we still barbecued dinner and relaxed with a few adult beverages after tucking in our girls. Tonight he made a special request… for garlic bread. Here are the ingredients you will need. Start by pressing the three cloves of garlic into a medium bowl. Mince up a shallot so it measures one tablespoon. Add the shallot to the garlic in the medium bowl. Next, mince up the fresh parsley and measure out a tablespoon. Add that to the bowl along with the salt and pepper. Now add the *gasp* two sticks of butter and the two tablespoons {give or take} of freshly grated Parmesan cheese. Mix until combined. And set aside, just for now. Grab your loaf of Italian bread. Using a bread knife, slice lengthwise in half and place on a sheet pan. Remove and slice immediately. Ingredients: 1 loaf of Italian Bread 1 tablespoon Shallots, minced

Pizza Braid A pizza braid is very kid-friendly, easy on the wallet and extremely simple to make. My aunt and cousin first introduced me to them and I’ve been hooked ever since. The possibilities are endless of the varieties you could make (check out the Apple Dessert Braid!), but the recipe below is for a very basic hamburger and pepperoni braid. You could make your own dough, but I prefer the shortcut of using Rhodes rise and bake dough. This is one of my favorite shortcuts to make a nice loaf of bread or use in recipes like this one. As I said, this is extremely basic. The dough takes a few hours to rise, so I take it out in the morning and place a towel over it. Yes, yes the dough in that photo has not risen fully. Then you spread out the sauce, lay the meats down, followed by the cheese. Then with a pizza cutter, start cutting about 1 inch thick strips down the whole rectangle. Follow the pictures above. A few minutes before it’s done I brush with olive oil and sprinkle with oregano.

Pasta Un-Carbonara As a cook, I’d love to be remembered as someone who took inspiration from my culinary heritage, but also relished making dishes my own, not feeling shackled by recipes, but rather enjoying the freedom to apply skills I’ve acquired over the years to bring new techniques and ingredients to my cooking. I’d also like to be remembered for the time I’ve spent cooking with my family, teaching my kids a few things about cooking before they head out on their own in the world. This dish, our twist on Spaghetti Carbonara speaks to both of these things. A family favorite that gives a nod to my Italian culinary roots, but veers from the traditional in substantive ways, it’s a dish that was born out of experimentation with my clan, one that the kids not only helped to re-define, but ultimately learned how to make themselves. Here is a photo of our set-up for cooking Chang's eggs. Enjoy! Recipe: Pasta Un-Carbonara by: Steve Dunn (Print Friendly Recipe) Ingredients: Method: Serves 6

Buffalo Shrimp Bread Bowl Dip Recipe This dip is great for tailgating or parties! Also delicious with chicken and it’s easy to make! Full of shrimp, veggies, and buffalo flavor!! And when the dip is gone you’ll find yourself chowing down on the bread! Oh boy, where to start with this Buffalo Shirmp Bread Bowl Dip?! This weekend I had to try to make this Buffalo Shrimp Bread Bowl Dip! To start off with preheat your oven and line a large baking sheet with a few pieces of aluminum foil. The hardest part about this recipe is just chopping everything up which really isn’t that hard, just takes a little bit of time. You also need to chop the shrimp or you can use really small or canned (drained) shrimp. Mix together the other ingredients. Then I mixed in the Frank’s hot sauce, Ranch seasoning, and lemon juice. Fill up the boule with the dip to the top. Cover the boule with the top part. Wrap the aluminum foil around it and bake for about an hour. Before serving, mix in the chopped veggies.
