Spinach Dip

Spinach Dip

As promised, here’s the new dip I made for Ryan’s birthday get-together this past weekend.  It was my first time making the classic bread bowl spinach dip.  To be honest, I used to not really like this kind of dip at all.  After tasting this one though, I have to change my tune.  I’ll definitely [...]

Lemon Asparagus Cream Cheeze

With so much beautiful asparagus at the Farmers’ Market lately, I’ve been trying to find new recipes that feature this tasty veggie.  This one looked great and seemed really easy to veganize, and since I love the combo of lemon and asparagus together, I thought I’d give it a try.

I found some recipes online that used both cream cheese [...]

Fresh Fava Bean Puree

Whenever I go to the Farmers’ Market I always get inspired to try new fruits and vegetables, although sometimes I have no idea what they are or how to prepare them.  I didn’t initially even know that these were fava beans, and even though I’ve never had them and had no idea what to use [...]

Hot Artichoke Dip

Hot Artichoke Dip

I’m a huge fan of hot and creamy baked dips.  They’re perfect for entertaining in that they’re not much harder to make than cold dips, but they’re so much more impressive.  They’re also especially great for this time of year when the weather’s chilly and there’s lots of football on the tube! I have a [...]
