Sweet Bacon Tator Tots Recipe Sweet Bacon Tater Tots Recipe Sweet smokey bacon wrapped around tender tater tots. What more could you ask for in a savory appetizer? If you have leftovers, reheat them in the oven to get them nice and crispy again. I had a small percentage of the tots break, so be gentle when transferring them to your serving dish. Enjoy and watch the how-to video at the end of this post! Beer-Battered Fried Pickles I’m fairly certain there is nothing more satisfying to eat than a fried pickle. The sad part is that it took me 29 years to discover this. Last year I tasted my first fried pickle in an Irish pub in California and I was forever transformed. I crossed the threshold into a new phase of life—pre-fried pickle to post-fried pickle. And I’m never looking back. Thank you to TK member Kelly from Live Love Pasta (who in turn sourced the recipe from Elizabeth’s Edible Experience) for reminding me of this glorious food and inspiring me to share it with you today!

Loaded Baked Potato Rounds I really wanted to call these rounds of potatoes, Chips. I know they aren’t chips-chips because the potatoes are not crunchy, but they look like chips. And if I ever had to tell you what my favorite potato chip flavor was, I would say Loaded Baked Potato Chips. How to Make Pesto like an Italian Grandmother Recipe If you've ever tasted pesto in Italy you know that the pesto here in the United States just isn't the same. I received a lesson in how to make pesto from a real Italian grandmother last week and now I understand the difference and what makes it so. My friend Francesca makes the trip from her small town near the pesto-epicenter of Genoa, Italy to San Francisco once or twice a year - this time (lucky for us) she brought her mom and two-year old son Mattia.

- 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. New England Clam Chowder {Slow Cooker Style} If you're new here, you may want to subscribe to my RSS feed. Thanks for visiting! Either you love New England Clam Chowder or you don’t, there simply is no in between. I never loved New England Clam Chowder so much, as I did after the first time I made it myself with fresh clams (but more on that story later).

Cook Healthy Mozzarella Sticks photo credit Who says our favorite cheesy foods have to be off limits? Mozzarella sticks are awesome for every occasion, and make for a delightful snack that most of us have been accustomed to since childhood. Now that we’re mature college girls who are more health conscious, we can still have the cheesy snack we all love, guilt-free! Pico Guacamole - Garnish with Lemon Two of my favorite Mexican condiments are combined in this fiesta-ready Pico Guacamole. Whenever we go to Chipotle, I have an internal battle over what to order. I love, love, love chips and guac, but I wince whenever I shell out $2 for that teeny, tiny cup of guacamole. I realize that I’m probably cheap (BTW, I prefer the term “fiscally conservative”), but, c’mon! That little cup is never enough to last through my bag of chips, especially when everyone else wants some, too.

17 Power Snacks For Studying Snack smart and study hard. Banana Dog Bites Here’s a reason to get excited about a classic-old combo: bananas — a darling energy-boosting carbohydrate — wrapped in wheat tortillas and peanut butter. Baked Fontina - Smells Like Home Brace yourselves for possibly the easiest appetizer you’ll ever come across. I’d say this recipe is even easier than putting together a cheese platter because there is no agonizing over what cheeses to buy – wait…am I the only on who agonizes over things like this? Anyway, for this baked fontina, you’ll cube some Italian fontina, chop some garlic and herbs, put everything in a cast iron pan, and pop it under the broiler for 6 minutes. That’s it! The result is a baked fondue of cheesy goodness that you can scoop up with hunks of bread, toasted sliced bread, or even crackers or Wheat Thins. The garlic and herbs permeate throughout the cheese when it bakes and every bite has a blast of herby flavor.

Parmesan Crusted Fried Mashed Potato Cakes Recipe In our house, you’ll find it’s a very rare occasion when there is leftover mashed potatoes. Aside from my potato loving self, my daughter Kaydence is a mashed potato fanatic. Her potato cravings have gotten so ridiculous that when we all sat down to watch a movie the other night, instead of reaching for the bowl of popcorn my husband popped, she ran in the kitchen to grab my bowl of leftover mashed potatoes from dinner and proceeded to finger dip in the bowl. It’s her obsession.

Texas Queso Dip I've always sort of hated the cheese you can buy in a block and use for know...the one that starts with a V. Blech. I always though it tasted so fake. So I've been experimenting with different recipes for dips and appetizers that use real cheese and so far the results have been amazing :) This queso dip I made on NYE and it was demolished very quickly.
