Classic Spinach Dip {The Perfect Dip for a Baby Shower!}



I have been anticipating the birth of my ninth grandchild these past months.  There is nothing sweeter than getting ready for a bundle of joy to arrive.  

In June, a group of ladies gave a baby shower for my daughter.  She asked me to join in on the planning and the coordinating of the food.  I had an idea of what her favorite foods are and wanted to incorporate as many of them as I could to make it special for her.  

One of my daughter's favorite party food is Classic Spinach Dip.  She adores this dip.  

It is such a classic.    

It was first introduced in the late 70's on the back of a package of Knror's Vegetable Soup Mix.  After all these year this dip is still the Perfect Party Dip!



Have you ever tried this dip?  

This dip is so easy to put together.  If you have time to make it the day before the flavors intensify.  

I love taking a dish somewhere, and everyone falls in love with it ready to take the recipe home with them.  

I just tell them to look on the back of the Knorr's Vegetable Soup Mix package, and you will be set.  

The ingredients are easy to find in the store, frozen spinach, mayonnaise, sour cream, water chestnuts, and green onions along with the soup mix.

Next time when you need a perfect party dip,  I hope you remember this dip recipe!  Enjoy!

Huevos Fajitas Taco




My husband loves eggs and biscuits or toast for breakfast.  He always request fried eggs, but my favorite are scrambled. I love to change it up a little with scrambled eggs by adding ingredients I have leftover from previous dishes I have made.


This last weekend, in the fridge I had leftover chopped bell peppers, chopped red onions, diced tomatoes, and grated cheese.  Sounds like ingredients for fajitas--you guessed it!  We had chicken and beef fajitas the night before so why not make Huevos Fajitas Taco!


Perfectly scrambled eggs are pretty tasty, not to mention a simple breakfast food, but when they are added to another scrumptious dish they become extravagant.

The next morning at the last minute I decided to pile all the leftover ingredients in a couple tablespoon of butter in a hot iron skillet and saute them until all the ingredients are heated.  

The eggs are added to the steak mixture and  are all cooked together fajita style then pile it all into a warm flour tortilla spread with a generous amount of guacamole.  

The breakfast was absolutely scrumptious.

We are huge breakfast for dinner fans, and have it often so I think these will be added to our menu rotation.

Hope you think about leftover ingredients the next time you get ready to make a dish!  Enjoy!

Green Apple Pull Apart Bread {Using Rhodes Frozen Bread}



By now, I think almost everyone knows about Pull Apart Bread on Pinterest.  I don't think I have opened up my Pinterest and run through my followers pins without someone pinning a recipe for pull apart bread in a loaf pan.




I decided I needed to find out what all the fuss was about so I made my own spin on it, Green Apple Pull Apart Bread.  I decided to follow with the ingredients I use in my Apple Cinnamon Rolls.  




I clearly see what some people are saying you need to call the law when people make this.  ha! ha! You have not lived until you make some of this amazing pull apart bread.  

Hope you get to make some real soon.  

Enjoy!
