Cheese Straws

Cheese Straws

Do you know about frozen puff pastry? I love the stuff because the homemade version is really hard to make and not necessarily better tasting. I consistently keep a box of Pepperidge Farm frozen puff pastry in my freezer because truly, the possibilities are endless.

Chicken Spinach Enchilada Dip

Chicken Spinach Enchilada Dip

OH man. I’ve found my new go-to app. It’s crowd pleasing, naturally gluten free, and hearty enough to keep a pretty big group of people satisfied – kids included (Tessa’s a big fan). I got the idea from my favorite enchilada recipe and barely adapted the amounts to make it just a bit creamier,...
