Spinach Dip

Here you go Shan....sorry about the horrible picture.
Spinach Dip

1 pkg (10oz) frozen chopped spinach (thawed and squeezed dry)
1 (16oz) container sour cream
1 cup mayonnaise
1 pkg Knorr's vegetable recipe mix (you can find it by the dressings usually)

French bread, cut up

Combine all ingredients (except the bread) and chill for at least 2 hours. Serve with French Bread, crackers, or vegetables.


To my fellow food all amaze me! I feel like I need to get with the times and spice up the old blog a bit. I am looking for tips and advice. I am not terribly smart when it comes to the computer. I really want to provide a way to print my recipes from the blog, just in case anyone ever wanted a copy. I don't know how often anyone even looks at my blog, but just in case. If you have any tips for this, I would appreciate it. I love my blog and the chance it gives me to share something I love. I feel like I have come a long way with my recipes and pictures since I started blogging and I am proud of that. I want my blog to reflect that a little bit more. For those of you who do read and follow me, THANK YOU!!! Your support is very appreciated!!

Rocky Road Treats

I didn't take many food pictures at our party the other night. I was so frantic to get everything done on time, some things just were forgotten. The pictures I did take weren't great, but they will have to do. These are some of my favorite treats! I love these because they take like 5 minutes to make and a small bite is very satisfying. Or on other days, the entire pan is satisfying!
Rocky Road Treats

1 cup peanut butter
1 bag chocolate chips
6 cups mini marshmallows

Melt peanut butter and chocolate chips in a saucepan. Add marshmallows and mix together just until incorporated. Pour into an 8x8 inch pan and refrigerate until cool. Cut into small squares and enjoy!

We had lots of good food at our house this weekend! I will do my best to share the recipes with all of you! This was our main dish for our party! So good!! I forgot to tell people that the coleslaw went on the sandwich, so most people didn't get the full yumminess of this slider. A perfect dish for a party!

Celebration Wreath

I was so excited last week when I saw this on Our Best Bites. It was the perfect thing for my cute husbands surprise birthday party on Saturday. It only took me about an hour to make and I love, love, love it!!!
Here's what you a 14 inch straw wreath (the ones that are wrapped in plastic). Leave the plastic on! Buy your balloons-any color you want and floral pins. (like the picture below). I used about 275ish balloons. You stick the pin around the balloon and push it into the wreath....that's it! You can do different directions with your balloons (I did), you can keep the pins close together or go about an inch apart. It's totally up to you. I left a space at the top without balloons for ribbon.
I love it because you can't mess it up. Just have fun making it! It will brighten up any celebration! Happy wreath making!!
