Garlic Leek and Goat Cheese Dip

Roasted garlic makes this goat cheese and leek dip extra creamy and flavorful! www.lemonsforlulu.com

This dip is doubly creamy with the roasted garlic and soft goat cheese!  The leeks add a subtle freshness. I was listening to satellite radio during one of my kiddie taxi cab trips this past week.  I was half listening and half dreaming up new recipes in my head when I was awoken from my daydream by the DJ talking about Instagram.  Except she wasn’t referring to it as Instagram, rather she was abbreviating it to “Insta." … Continue reading →

Blue Cheese Ranch Dip

Blue-cheese-ranch-dip www.lemonsforlulu.com

This blue cheese ranch dip is creamy and cool! A tangy partner for chips and veggies! (This post was sponsored by SunChips, but all opinions expressed are completely my own!) I make a lot of spicy food.  I can’t help it.  I love spice.  The spicier the better.  I make spicy sandwiches, and spicy pasta dishes, heck I put spice in fudge!   If I don’t add spice while I’m cooking, I drown the food on my plate in hot sauce.  It’s become an … Continue reading →

Tex-Mex Spinach and Artichoke Dip

Tex Mex Spinach and Artichoke Dip has a bit of a kick with poblano peppers and jalapeño that have been roasted! Creamy, cheesy and full of flavor! www.lemonsforlulu.com

Spinach and artichoke dip with a little heat!  Roasted poblano's and jalapeños add spice that's tamed by lots of creamy cheese! I love eating, but I don't always like following the food pyramid.  I'm a snacker at heart and although I know what food is good for me, I am not always eager to consume them.  If things like fat, calories, cholesterol, and blood pressure didn't exist than I would eat completely differently. My food … Continue reading →

Muffaletta Hoagy Dip

Muffaletta Hoagie Dip

The flavors you love in a Muffaletta sandwich can be found in this simple hoagie dip! When I was a freshman in college, I had the opportunity to go to New Orleans for Mardi Gras.  A group of friends were renting a van and driving down for the week.   But since I was a freshman in college, I had no money.  A trip like that would probably use up my grocery funds for the month.   So I stayed behind and cursed my lack of funds, lack of … Continue reading →

Green Goddess Dip

Easy light dip made with avocados and Greek yogurt! www.lemonsforlulu.com

Dips are one of my favorite things to eat.  But I prefer easy dips!  Serving a healthy dip is even better! I made this Green Goddess veggie dip with Chobani yogurt!  It's easy, healthy and delicious!   Going green can mean so many things.  It can mean being environmentally conscious, or bringing out our inner Irish.  For me it means eating green food.  A few weeks ago I made pistachio pudding cookies which were the perfect verdant … Continue reading →

Southwest Deviled Eggs

Southwest Deviled Eggs

Southwest Deviled Eggs   Deviled Eggs remind me of the 70's.  I just seem to remember these being THE appetizer at parties and cookouts that my family attended when I was a kid.   What I remember most is that Tupperware Deviled Egg Keeper.  It was a handy little thing.  The egg keeper came in various colors-yellow, orange, green, etc.  There was a sturdy hard plastic base.  The inside held two removable trays that would cradle your … Continue reading →
