Kid Kabobs

I’m a California girl born and raised in a predominately agriculture focused community– seriously, I grew up between fields of carrots and down the street from a dairy farm. Because of my love for all things Cali I’ve been working with California Dairy for a couple of years now, and honestly, my love from my home state… Read more »

Spicy Buffalo Chicken Dip

I had this dip for the first time about a month ago. We were having some of the chic staffers over for dinner and Emily brought this Spicy Buffalo Chicken Dip. And just like it happens every time someone brings hot, cheesy dip to a party, we stood around the bowl like a campfire and… Read more »

Peach Crostini

Just writing this post makes me hungry! The bad news (for me) is that we shot this post for peach crostini weeks ago so I can’t snack on them now. The good news (also for me) is that these are so stinking easy to make I can totally go whip some up when I get home…. Read more »

Oven-Baked Cheesy Bean Dip Recipe

Who doesn’t love a hot and cheesy dip? I dare say it’s one of my favorite comfort foods! My family has been making this bean dip recipe since I was a teenager.

Pull Apart Cheesy Garlic Bread

Cheesy. Garlic. Bread.  Where do I sign up?! If you’re a Pinterest addict like me, (yes, I confess to spending a ridiculous amount of time looking at DIY crafts, photo styling ideas, and the sort) this is nothing new.  I’ve seen so many variations on this pull-apart bread.  There’s a bacon ranch one, a Buffalo… Read more »

Parmesan Onion Dip

‘Tis the season for dip and party foods! Dips are meant to be appetizers and snacks, however, whenever I encounter one that I like- it ends up becoming my entire meal. Especially in the case of this dip– it is so addicting.  It’s creamy, savory, and smells wonderful. You’ll find creative ways to incorporate it and… Read more »

Mashed Potato Tater Tots

If given the choice between french fries or tater tots- I say tater tots! How about mashed potatoes or tater tots?  That’s a tough one, but you don’t have to choose. Why, you ask?  Because these taters are made using mashed potatoes!  My family always has too much mashed potato leftover from Thanksgiving dinner.  What… Read more »

Cheddar Apple Crostini

“Apple pie without the cheese is like a kiss without the squeeze.”  I once had this co-worker who repeated this saying anytime someone mentioned pie.  It always made me laugh.  One afternoon I finally tested out this combination. I took a slice of cheddar and placed it on a wedge of Granny Smith apple.  And… Read more »
