Individual Seven-Layer Dips

Individual Seven-Layer Dips
We keep it pretty minimal when it comes to toys for our kids on Christmas but yet somehow I feel like there’s STUFF everywhere! Anyone else feel this way? We’re swimming in Legos over here and just when I think I’ve cleaned up the last of them, I’ll step on one or one of my boys will drop their ships and Lego pieces go flying everywhere. I think my husband spent 6 straight hours on Christmas helping them build Legos. Seven layer dip is one of my favorites. But after a few people have dipped (hopefully not double-dipped), it starts to look like mush. The great thing about seven layer dip is that you can adjust it to your personal tastes. Garnish with one tortilla chip. Individual Seven-Layer Dips Ingredients Instructions In a small bowl mix taco seasoning with refried beans. Notes Note: All measurements are approximate.

Spicy Whiskey BBQ Sliders Are you having a New Year’s Eve get together at your house? If so, I must urge you to strongly consider making these decadent, drippy, diminutive, dreamy, and divine sliders. I made them just before Christmas and when I took my first bite, I actually heard angels singing. They’re positively out of this world. Bake or Break  <div class="no-js-alert"> Please enable JavaScript to view this website. </div> Subscribe Smashed Avocado + Tomato Basil Bruschetta Sometimes I find myself in an entranced state when I cook. It’s as though I get lost in the food; in the flavors, the smells, and sometimes just the simple pleasure that good food brings to my soul. I also get lost pinning things on Pinterest. Which is mostly just a distraction from what I’m actually trying to do which is work like a normal person and get to the gym. Speaking of the gym, I have an update on my Big Foot/marine/professional wrestler trainer! Uhhh… he is legit crazy (yes I just said that).

Tortilla Roll-ups Here's two of my favorite roll-up recipes - Mexican chicken and Italian roll-ups.

Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Cookie Recipe This peanut butter chocolate chip cookie recipe represents one of my Mom’s most frequently requested treats. As an avid peanut butter cookie fan myself, I put in a request for a batch as often as I can get away with it. In fact, these cookies have shown up in one iteration or another throughout my entire life. Avocado, Cream Cheese, and Salsa-Stuffed Puff Pastries Avocado, Cream Cheese, and Salsa-Stuffed Puff Pastries I had been wanting to make stuffed savory stuffed puff pastry for awhile. Probably for the past, oh, seven years, give or take. My sister is the queen of puffed pastry appetizers but this is one of those cooking projects that just never happened for me. Until now. A shipment of locally-grown avocados that all decided to ripen on the same day and I wanted to put them to a creative use.

Lunchbox Treats – Twenty Ideas for Wrap Fillings Sometimes it’s not the fillings that children send home in their lunch boxes, it’s the bread that encases them. It wasn’t until she was in Year 8 that my daughter admitted that she hated sandwiches. “I want something that’s not boring!”, she said, but when pressed further, she said, “anything but bread!” Anything but bread. pita bread Oh, am I so happy to finally have a great pita recipe. You see, pitas themselves aren’t hard to make. Most recipes very closely, or even exactly, resemble a standard pizza dough and they’re not much more difficult to assemble. No, the trouble comes when you pop them in the oven and pray for the kind of puffiness you can pop some falafel into and end up with flatbread. Delicious, warm, toasty flatbread, but definitely not a pita. But this works!

The other day I was browsing one of my favorite forums and found this recipe (which I changed just a bit), which was being raved about, just in time for Henry's first birthday party. It sounded perfect for a gathering of people because you make it ahead, pop it in for 20 minutes, and it also makes quite a bit. Needless to say, the guests loved them and almost everyone wants the recipe. So, folks, here you go! {Funeral Sandwiches} 1 package of King's Hawaiian Rolls

What you think does matter Meatballs coated in marinara sauce / not an online cooking class I am not a Chef, this is not a online cooking class, I just want to remind you: that I love to eat.

Strawberry Mango Naturally Flavored Water I’m back again with another naturally flavored water. This time it’s Strawberry Mango Water. If you tried my Lemon, Cucumber Mint Detox Water and thought it was too strong then this one might be right up your alley! The flavor is much more subtle and most of the “flavor” seems to come first from the delicious smell. Strawberries and Mangoes are both very fragrant fruits so the water smells delicious even before it touches your taste buds!
