Sheetpan Strawberry Shortcake

Sheetpan Strawberry Shortcake

I’m going to call this recipe for Sheetpan Strawberry Shortcake the last “hurrah” of summer. And you’ll notice I didn’t just stop at Strawberries for this shortcake and tossed on a few blueberries and raspberries, too. Really you can use any berries or for that matter, whatever fruit you think might be good on it!

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!

Hot Reuben Dip

Hot Reuben Dip

It was a friend who first gave me the recipe for this Hot Reuben Dip years ago, and I remember we went a little gaga over it for a while. Then at some point, I just kinda forgot about it. Maybe spring came and Hot Reuben Dip is def a super creamy, super cheesy kind of a winter comfort kind of thing. So last night when I wanted Reuben Sandwiches and had forgotten to get the bread and didn’t want to go out for it (#HatingWinterWhenWillItGoAway) I remembered this quick and easy dip. And oh my gosh I had forgotten how insanely good it is!!

Martin Sheen's Pumpkin Cheesecake

Martin Sheen’s Pumpkin Cheesecake

I remember Martin Sheen was featured once on the back pages of Bon Appetit, where they used to run a celebrity spot every month. It wasn’t until I got my copy of “Best American Recipes 2003-2004” by Molly Stevens (I loved that series of books) that I paid attention. She highlighted Martin Sheen’s Pumpkin Cheesecake in the most glowing terms. She’s not wrong!

Hot Spinach Artichoke Dip

Hot Spinach Artichoke Dip

I used to be kinda opposed to Hot Spinach Artichoke Dip, just on principle…and here’s the deal: Back in the ’80s, it was all about the Creamy Knorr’s Spinach Dip and it was served warm or cold in a bread bowl. I loved that stuff! And I remember how fancy we all thought it was, too. Then in the ’90s, it was all about the Hot Artichoke Dip. It seemed that just about every restaurant had a version. It was everywhere! And I loved that stuff, too! Of course, I’ve always had a thing for artichokes, and guess who else in the house does? Homer, my cat. She goes nuts over them. She can smell even the canned artichokes in the grocery bag and immediately comes running!
