Spinach Artichoke Dip

Spinach Artichoke Dip

My cousin Merry Anne is the oldest of us cousins.  I’m not going to say that she’s spoiled or anything but her elder state did come with some privileges.  For example, she didn’t have to take the everyone-in-the-tub baths that the rest of us had to endure as youngsters.  Merry Anne always got first dibs […]

I had one last package of cream cheese remaining from Sam’s Club. I bought a rather large box of them around New Years and most were turned into experimental cheese cakes by the ManCave Dwellers downstairs.  Olivia led the band of boys in creating cheesecakes such as Peach Cobbler Cheesecake and Red Velvet Cheesecake.  Their […]

Hot Lemon Chicken Salad

Hot Lemon Chicken Salad

My last treat for game day is a Hot Lemon Chicken Salad.  Doesn’t sound too good from the title but I actually liked it. The Hot means heated not spicy but I’m sure you could add red pepper if you wanted it hot.  The lemon with the chicken made for a bright spot on the […]

Party Mix

I enjoy homemade Party Mix.  I like the taste but I also have many memories tied to it. Growing up we seemed to only make it around Christmas time but I personally have been known to make it other times in the year, too. I guess I’m living on the edge. There aren’t really as […]

I have been to Greece and I have been to two Greek festivals.  I’m thinking this makes me pretty much an expert on all thing Greek.  Go ahead and ask me a question about Greece.  For example, who was the Oracle?  I know the answer.  Where did the Apostle Paul travel on his second missionary […]

I am getting ready tonight to go to another girlfriend crafting weekend.  I decided to make a couple of appetizers for tomorrow.  The first is a classic Jezebel Sauce but I don’t like to give a delicious appetizer and evil name so I decided to rename it after myself.  I’m not evil. Now you can […]
