• Appetizer Skewers

    March 22, 2012DishinandDishes

    This is a super fun, easy and delicious appetizer to make for your next party.   The girls and I gobbled these up Saturday night.  They are kind of like a salad-on-a-stick and great for a before-dinner little bite of a snack. There isn’t a science to what you can put on your skewers.  Simply…

  • Spinach Artichoke Dip

    March 22, 2012DishinandDishes

    Spinach Artichoke Dip. Even if they don’t like spinach all that much, most people truly love this concoction. Mr. Wonderful and I have this favorite low-maintenance Friday night supper when we’re home alone.  Friday nights seem to cause teenagers to disappear out of the house.  We buy one of those roasted chickens, a frozen package…

  • Roasted Smoky Salsa

    March 22, 2012DishinandDishes

    I am anticipating. Anticipating growing my backyard heirloom tomatoes.  Mr. Wonderful, on the other hand, is probably not anticipating the work that will go into that.  Are you Mr. Wonderful? Huh …huh? Of course he is. And I think I may add some peppers this year.  In fact, I’d love a salsa garden.With the abundance…

  • Super Simple Guacamole

    March 22, 2012DishinandDishes

    Now, I have two issues with guacamole. One is that you really need to make it at the last possible moment.  If not, the avocado oxidizes and begins to turn brown.  Lime juice helps a little, but you don’t want the taste overpowered by too much lime juice, so it’s best to make it at…

  • Kicked Up Hummus

    March 22, 2012DishinandDishes

    One of my favorite things to eat when I’m eating healthy, is hummus. Hummus with it’s peanut butter consistency is a spread primarily made of garbanzo beans (also known as chickpeas) and tahini, a sesame paste, made of, you guessed it, ground sesame seeds. Add in some lemon juice, garlic, salt and pepper, and you…

  • Prosciutto Cups

    March 22, 2012DishinandDishes

    Bacon lettuce and tomato.  It evokes memories of childhood summertime evenings.  Simple sandwiches of three components that cause a tastebud explosion filled with three flavors. These Prosciutto Cups are inspired by a recipe I saw on Top Chef.  Except only the cups made out of prosciutto inspired me..not the fillings. While chef worthy, they weren’t…

  • Spicy Southwest Pretzels

    March 22, 2012DishinandDishes

    Living in Oklahoma has changed my tastebuds a bit, so to speak. The flavors in the southwest are full of spice and wonder.  The other day while at my friend Melisa’s (pronounced Ma lee sa) place, she served these amazing spicy/savory pretzels and I am now addicted. I seem to be using that word a…

  • Creamy Corn Rotel Dip

    December 31, 2011DishinandDishes

    My friend Joy made this for our small group Christmas Party this year.  Joy and I work out together during the week every morning at 6 a.m.  Which is kind of ironic because I will need to run about 10 miles to wear off all the Creamy Corn Dip I’ve eaten over Christmas break…and we…

    June 13, 2011DishinandDishes

    Recently my Mom-in-law gifted us with a smoker she had hanging around in her shed, and wasn’t using. I must confess, I (we) have had no experience whatsover with a smoker, so this weekend, we gave it our first go. This is how we made our first BBQ rub ..ever. And I thought it was really…
