Honey Lime Summer Corn Salsa

Honey Lime Summer Corn Salsa

This is a bright and zesty recipe to enjoy some of summer's best produce!! It can be enjoyed with chips as a dip, or eaten as a summer salad. Golden brown kernels of corn come together with tomatoes, creamy avocado, red onion for bite, black beans, and tons of fresh cilantro in minutes, and are tossed with the most amazing Honey Lime Vinaigrette. This combo is seriously delicious - the combination of lime juice, earthy, warm cumin, honey, and extra virgin olive oil is the absolute perfect way to bind these ingredients together. The best part is that the flavor of the dip gets better as it sits - so it's great to have out during an event, or to make ahead for lunch! Let's get cookin! 

Cranberry Jalapeño Cream Cheese Dip

Cranberry Jalapeño Cream Cheese Dip

I really wanted to come up with a fun appetizer that involved deliciously tangy cranberries. This dip is unexpectedly tasty. A blend of fresh cranberries, lemon juice, sugar, jalapeño, green onions, cumin, and cilantro is served over softened cream cheese...yes a block of cream cheese! Honestly, what's better than a good dip? All you've gotta do is throw all the ingredients together, let it macerate a bit in the fridge, and pulse it in a blender. The result is a vibrant cranberry relish that is perfectly sweet, tangy, earthy, and with a slight spicy kick. This dip is festive, flavorful, easy on the wallet, and perfect for potlucks. Let's get cookin!  

Baked Spinach and Artichoke Phyllo Bites

Baked Spinach and Artichoke Phyllo Bites

Happy Holidays!! I’m so excited for Thanksgiving - it’s one of my favorite holidays. Today’s recipe is great for potlucks or hosting your own holiday event. Spinach artichoke dip is one of those classics that are just so comforting and indulgent. Best served when piping hot and topped with tons of cheese…I’ve only really had store-bought or dip from a restaurant. I figured it might be nice to whip up a homemade recipe to cut down on unnecessary preservatives/ingredients. Crisp, delicate phyllo dough is spinach and artichoke dip’s bff. Phyllo seems difficult to work with, but actually turned out to be really therapeutic. You can also use pre-made phyllo cups, available in the frozen aisle. I’ll show you how easy it is to make mini phyllo cups filled with this delicious dip! This recipe is as simple as mixing all the ingredients, spooning the dip into phyllo cups, and throwing them in the oven to get warm and golden! Let’s get baking :)
