bacon. Cooked, chopped, amazing, bacon.

This beer cheese dip is the perfect combo of creamy, cheesy, and a little crunchy (thanks to the bacon). The Kettle Brand chips are the perfect choice for dipping because they are a bit thicker than your typical chip and have a great balance of salt and pepper which goes great with the richness of this dip.

Sip It :: Superbowl Sangria

white sangria recipe for superbowl

The big game is a week away, have you made your Superbowl menu? As far as beverages go, beer is a given (of course) but to be honest — I tire from beer quickly. I was thinking that with all that oh-so-good-but-bad-for-you food why not sip something a bit more on the lighter and refreshing side this year? Hence, Superbowl sangria. 

 sangria recipe

This white sangria recipe is full of bright flavors (think honeycrisp apples, oranges and lemons) and I LOVE the idea of pre-making and filling mason jars. On game day, just toss the jars into a bucket of ice and guests can grab and sip as they please.

Serve it :: Lemon & Rosemary Cake

Lemon Yogurt Cake

Lemon desserts have not always been my favorite. In fact, I dislike most of them. But when I was looking into cakes to make that had savory flavors, this Lemon & Rosemary Cake recipe peaked my interest. It isn’t too “lemony” and the rosemary isn’t overpowering either. This cake is a well balanced marriage of flavors. Topped with a light lemon icing — this lemon yogurt cake was a winner. Definitely making this again!

Stir Things Up with Hot Chocolate Spoons

How to Make Hot Chocolate Spoons

What’s better than a warm cup of milk before bed? Okay who REALLY has warm milk before bed? I wonder these things.

But a warm cup of milk with decadent chocolate spoons to stirs things up? Hot Chocolate Spoons….I’m so in.

These easy treats are a perfect way to enjoy an after-dinner treat. Simply stir in a warm cup of milk and enjoy! They make for a great treat when having company during the holiday season and can even be wrapped up for teachers as gifts. If you’d like to make them ahead of time for last minute guests or gifts, just store them in a Ziploc® Bag and keep in the freezer. Pull them out an hour before needed and enjoy.

Cinnamon & Sugar Ice Cream Puffs

Puff Pastry Desserts

 

Tis’ the season of all things sweet! By now you have probably baked cookies and planned your holiday dessert, but be sure to leave room for these simple treats using Peppridge Farm Puff Pastry Sheets. I’m loving Puff Pastry desserts because they are super simple to make and are a nice change of pace from frosting and cake. These cinnamon & sugar puffs are the perfect, flaky accompaniment to your favorite ice cream.

Here’s how to make them:

Puff Pastry Desserts :: Recipe

 

Cut out your favorite shapes using cookie cutters, brush with melted butted, sprinkle with cinnamon and sugar (don’t be afraid to be generous) and then they’re ready to bake! Bake in the oven at 350 degrees for about 15 minutes (when they are puffy and golden brown, pull them out).
