Would you guys kill me if I give you yet another Caramelized Onion Dip? Already, I have a Skinny Caramelized Onion Dip, Classic Lipton’s Onion Soup Dip and Caramelized Onion and Bacon Dip. But just one more, this Classic French Onion Dip for New Year’s…then we can all to through several weeks of “Hell-thy.”
Caramelized Onions are my JAM! Well, not literally, but there’s an idea, for a recipe, huh? But today, I used them in a healthier Skinny Caramelized Onion Dip. Perfect to take to a party or serve at home.
So how’s everyone doing on their New Year’s resolutions? If this blog is any indication with the Million Dollar Dip, below? Me? Probably not so great. But hey, it was the Super Bowl last week and I felt like I had to make this dip…
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!
I had some red lentils (which are really orange, so that’s bizarre, isn’t it?) calling to me the other night. Calling at 2:00 a.m. Seriously. I was like “shut up, go to bed.” But that’s the kind of thing that happens when you look at Pinterest before falling asleep. And Red Lentil Dip with a Spanish Flair is what comes of it.
Thanks to my sister for finding this wonderful creamy, tangy spread that’s a bit different and perfect for the Holidays! The dried fruit makes it festive and adds a little sweetness and that flavor just bounces off the savory rosemary and garlic.
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.
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.
If you’re looking for a killer appetizer for the Superbowl, a game day or any other casual get together, you’ve got to try this Pimento Cheese. It’s fancy schmancy, white cheddar spiked with tequila and boasting a multitude of pepper flavors accented with just a hint of a smokiness.
A few months ago, this little recipe from Bon Appetit caught my eye. They called it Roasted Jalapeno Pimiento Cheese Toasts, but since there is absolutely no Pimiento in the recipe, I changed up the name. I thought this would be a perfect whip together no-brainer recipe for a Holiday buffet or pre-dinner appetizer.
Way back in the day when my parents threw the occasional party, this little spread would be made. I still remember the sweet little silver plated bowl Mom put this in. It was one of our dog’s trophies. Yep. There was a little engraving on the bottom!
While Fava beans set the standard for many Crostini spreads, this bright, fresh Lima & Pea spread is somewhat unexpected. It’s exceptional taste is springish, even in the dead of winter; bright and tasty, it’s a breath of fresh air.
Hummus, here in the US, is often spelled as shown, but I suspect this is a phonetic rendering and in most areas of the world is spelled just like Elaine over at Foodbod does, Homous. See, Elaine and I got to talking about Hummus/Homous after Ginger from Ginger & Bread and I did dual posts about her Viennese Schnitzel compared to my Iowa Pork Tenderloin Sandwich.
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.
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.
