Classic Lipton's Onion Soup Dip

Classic Lipton’s Onion Soup Dip

This is the easy classic onion dip, made with Liption's dry onion soup mix (or my home-made version)

Did you grow up with this Classic Lipton’s Onion Soup Dip made from Lipton’s Onion Soup Mix and Sour Cream? I did, and we considered it a real treat at our house. Served, of course, with Lay’s Potato Chips, the ridged ones. Or maybe it WAS Ruffles, as Kathryn pointed out in her comment. I don’t think Lay’s Wavy was out way back when in the ’60’s!

Roasted Red Pepper Hummus

Roasted Red Pepper Hummus

Roasted Red Pepper Hummus: So good and it has just a little extra sumpin' from the smoked paprika! Easy and minutes to make.

I love love love fall. It’s my favorite season. I love the cool crisp air, and the fall colors and the golden fields and bare branches contrasting against the cool skies. And I love fall flavors and food that has – well – taste but is still comforting. Like this Roasted Red Pepper Hummus.

Pub Cheese (Beer Cheese)

Pub Cheese a.k.a. Beer Cheese

I think I’ve been in kind of a dream here at my folk’s in South Dakota. The weather’s super mild. Not even sweater weather. I could almost be in denial except there’s no denying other fall signals. Leaves, for one. Sporting events for another. And that means Beer & Cheese. And Beer Cheese?! Yes! Or “Pub Cheese” if you’re trendy.

Fromage Fort - cheese wine

Fromage Fort

I was sitting outside this morning basking in the spring sun, reading my copy of “The Gourmet Cookbook,” thinking how much I’ll miss the magazine and how glad I am that I’ve hung onto this book. I’m one of those strange creatures that reads cook books like novels.

Curried Shrimp Spread

Curried Shrimp Spread

This is a favorite spread, but it seems especially pretty in the Spring – the lovely curried cream cheese pairs so well with the soft, fluffy eggs. The shrimp is just the right touch and the green onion adds freshness. It has just enough bite to meld with the other flavors. You’ll be the hit of the party when you walk in the door with this spread and a few crackers or sturdy Pita chips.
