Ricotta Parmesan Garlic Bread

Sometimes you need to indulge a little and this bread is exactly that! This was a HUGE hit with my family – even my picky kids. I guess if you spread cheese – even cheese they don’t like – over bread, they’ll love it. It makes for a great appetizer or compliments an Italian dinner. I’m planning to make it for my next wine tasting! I have the perfect wine to pair with it!

Cheesy Roasted Brussels Sprouts Dip

This recipe is one I had saved for years and I finally had a chance to make it and I’m kicking myself for not making it sooner. It was delicious, unique and would make a great dip to bring to a holiday party! I used to HATE brussels sprouts – my mom used to eat them all the time but would microwave a bag of frozen ones and I’d have to eat at least one. They were always mussy and gross. Over the past few years, I’ve found that I like them either roasted or sauteed….no steaming of sprouts in this house!

Pepperoni and Cheese Dip – Secret Recipe Club

If you’re looking for an appetizer to take to your next party, this dip is for you! I’m excited to share today’s recipe from my Secret Recipe Club reveal, Our Table for Seven. Erin’s blog is all about her experience in cooking and baking. We have very similar styles and I found so many recipes that my family would enjoy – including Cheesy Chicken & Rice Soup, Grilled Cheeseburger Wraps and Pumpkin Scones.

Back to the dip, it tastes just like pepperoni pizza! It was the perfect snack while watching football yesterday (yes, I waited to make this recipe the day before I had to post it). Unfortunately, the Eagles lost….but we lifted our spirits by devouring this dip. Erin made this in a slow cooker, but I decided to whip it up on the stove top and worked out perfectly.

Melon, Prosciutto and Mozzarella Skewers

A couple of weeks ago, my family had their annual picnic at my aunt and uncle’s house. Of course I needed to find a great recipe to bring and decided to poll my Facebook friends to see what I should bring. There were four choices and the majority chose these delicious and easy skewers. It was the perfect appetizer especially since it was another hot and humid summer day!

They’re really easy to make and only four ingredients! I cut the cantaloupe ahead of time and then it took me less than 10 minutes to put these together.
