Ingredient: Cream Cheese, At Room Temperature

Beer Cheese Dip Recipe

Beer and cheese? Yes, please! Skip the queso and make my Beer Cheese Dip for your next party. Warm cheddar infused with your favorite malted beverage and spicy seasonings makes short work of soft pretzels and shoves any thoughts of moderation out the window. If you have little ones in your family, you know Halloween is arguably the most anticipated holiday of the year. Kiddos seem to look forward to sacks of candy even more than that guy with the red hat who visits in December! Adults look forward to October too, though it’s not candy that entices us. It’s...

Crab Stuffed Mushrooms

Whether it’s a fancy dinner party or casual tailgate, these Crab Stuffed Mushrooms will wow your guests. A creamy, cheesy filling, chock full of delicate crab, transforms the humble mushroom cap into something truly magical! At my house, every party leads into the kitchen, and there’s a freedom (and lack of shame) in grazing along the counter with one hand chip-digging into a bubbling dish of Hissy Fit Dip while the other clutches a refreshing cocktail. On special occasions, though, I like a more formal set-up, with cloth napkins and even [gasp] utensils. It’s fun sometimes to fuss over...

Cranberry Salad Recipe

 It’s pretty in pink! Cranberries are king in this fluffy, fruit-filled salad. It’s a colorful companion to any meal with the perfect balance of sweet and tart.

Believe it or not, they actually don’t just come in cans suspended in gelatin, and...

Hissy Fit Dip

You should stop what you’re doing right now and make my Hissy Fit Dip. Don’t let the name scare you. The only thing about this luscious, creamy, party favorite that will actually cause a “hissy fit” is only getting one bite!   I love the excitement that hits in August each year as football season gets underway, well, at least all the wonderful party food and tailgating the fall brings with those rabid fans. It does make me sad, though, to see so many amazing dishes only grace a table if there’s an impending kick-off.  This recipe is a...

Oreo Cheesecake

The simple perfection of a classic Oreo cookie combines with the rich decadence of a cheesecake to make this show-stopping dessert. My Oreo Cookie Cheesecake is guaranteed to bring back fond childhood memories of milk and cookies even though you’re going to need a fork this time! Few snack foods fill me with nostalgia like Oreo cookies. I enjoyed them as a little girl and then later shared them with my own children. What’s not to love about that signature sweet “stuff” sandwiched between two crispy chocolate cookies? I’d argue that the act of eating them is even a...
