Healthy Spinach Artichoke Dip This warm, creamy dip is always a party favorite. The traditional recipe is loaded with full-fat mayo, sour cream, and cream cheese; delicious, but oh-so-naughty. Compared to a restaurant version, this healthy makeover is 80% lower in calories and fat while maintaining great flavor and creamy richness. Serve it with homemade whole wheat pita chips, and you've got yourself a delicious, no-guilt snack or party appetizer. This dip has always been one of my favorites, so I wanted to give it a healthy makeover. Healthified & simplified. I lightened the recipe by substituting Greek yogurt for the sour cream that is traditionally used. Thanks to Katrina at Baking And Boys for the inspiration for making a lighter version of this recipe. Good-for-you ingredients! Artichokes are high in iron, vitamin C, folates, magnesium and fiber; also rich in antioxidants.

It’s the healthier version of white pizza dip, but you don’t even realize it. Really, you don’t. Yep, you guessed it, even the brothers ate it. They ate cauliflower! Craziness.

It’s the perfect football dip, healthified…. well just a tad. I did say just a tad. This is so adaptable too.

Sausage Balls with Two Dipping Sauces from Never Enough Thyme You do know that it’s now less than two weeks until Christmas, right? Oh my. Just typing that out sends my anxiety level right through the roof. One of these days…One of these days…I’m going to get all my shopping done before Thanksgiving so I can actually enjoy (!) the Christmas season. The last thing I need right now is a complicated recipe to work on. In case you’re as harried as I am these days, I’m sharing one of my easiest, oldest, most well-liked appetizer recipes with you. These sausage balls also freeze well and can be cooked right from their frozen state. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. For this recipe, you really must grate the cheese from a block. In a stand mixer fitted with a dough hook, mix the cheese and sausage briefly on slow speed. Just a note about mixing the dough – you can most certainly mix this dough by hand with a sturdy wooden spoon. Roll the mixture into 1” diameter balls and place on baking sheets. Enjoy!

pool side - StumbleUpon How do you make bread even better? You stuff it with pepperoni and cheese. Then, you bake it in a bundt pan that allows you to pull off little chunks and dip them in pizza sauce. This is the perfect thing to bring to a party (and I did, where it disappeared quickly!) or to eat during a football game. Or, make it for dinner and serve with a salad. This bread takes a little bit of time to prepare, but in about half an hour I had filled my bundt pan with little dough balls, each with a piece of pepperoni and cheese stuffed within it. My new definition of bliss: warm dough with a cheesy center and a bite of pepperoni.

Irish Nachos | Pretty Yummy Foods Lets start these nachos by slicing some potatoes (not too thin!) drizzling them with olive oil, and season them with a bit of salt and pepper. If you like things a little spicy go ahead and throw a dash of cayenne pepper on them too. Pop them into a 420 degree oven for about 20 minutes or until the are nice and brown. Might as well pop some bacon in the oven while were at it! Have you ever baked bacon? Slide this in right next to your potatoes for about 10 minutes. When your potatoes are nice and crispy arrange them in a oven proof skillet… And throw some pickled jalapenos on top! Chop up your cooked bacon and sprinkle that on there too… I know what your thinking, bacon on nachos? Top this all with a few handfulls of shredded sharp cheddar and put this back into your oven for a few minutes… Until this happens.
