Obatzda – Bavarian Cheese Spread

Obatzda – Bavarian Cheese Spread

Yanno what’s happening now? Octoberfest. A celebration that I usually don’t think about much, or when I do I think about it until too late. I think that’s because it’s not in October, at least most of it isn’t. Octoberfest runs from mid to late September until the first Sunday in October. And so every year after Octoberfest passes, I think “Wow” I should have made something special to honor the German heritage that comes down from my Grandpa Herman. This year, I did. I made Obatzda – Bavarian Cheese Spread.

Classic Buffalo Chicken Dip

Classic Buffalo Chicken Dip

I still remember the first time I had this Classic Buffalo Chicken Dip at a party. I was kind of blown away! I think it was the first time I had any kind of a dip that had chicken in it, for one! So right away that was a whole new concept for me. It was served from a slow cooker (love that for a big party) and rich and creamy and spicy! That one was actually VERY spicy….this one’s a bit tamer.

Copycat Costco Chicken Salad – Instant Pot or Not

I make lots of Chicken salads in the summer, usually loaded up with something fun or special…but every now and then I get a craving for a good old fashioned chicken salad. A few years back I was introduced to Costco’s Chicken Salad by my sister in law. My gosh, did it ever hit the spot and it’s crazy good. But I couldn’t help but think it would be so easy to make a Copycat Costco Chicken Salad at home.

Creamy Crab Rangoon Dip with Wonton Chips Baked or Fried

Creamy Crab Rangoon Dip

When it’s hot and humid, you know what’s good? This Creamy Crab Rangoon Dip! Thank goodness, though, that our hotter than Hades last week cooled down a bit to a more normal just too darned hot! This week is forecasted for the low 80’s so I’ll take that although not too long ago, I would not imagine I’d be grateful for weather in the ’80s. I hope you have gotten some relief, too, wherever you are!
