Italian Cheese Dip with Walnuts and Honey

Italian Cheese Dip with Walnuts and Honey

I came to the realization a few years ago that ultimately (except for the rare person like my friend Alison), most people just want warm chocolate chip cookies for dessert. I could make something fancy like panna cotta or pavlova and that would be nice, but we are basically just children and we just...

Homemade Hummus

Homemade Hummus

I’d gotten lazy (or should I say, busy) and stopped making hummus at home. For a while I stopped buying it at all, but my toddler adores the stuff and eats it like baby food so when I saw this recipe in my ATK magazine, I knew I had to try it.

Healthy Spinach and Parmesan Dip

Healthy Spinach and Parmesan Dip

I have an awesome neighbor that shares her magazines with me, so I have a bunch of People’s lying around. I always make sure to check the recipes in the back but rarely do I pull one out; this spinach dip was a rare exception. The short ingredient list was right up my alley and...
