Pepperoni Pizza Dip



While flipping through a magazine not too long ago, I came across a recipe for a pizza dip.  It intrigued me.  Making pizza into a dip…how could that be.  I tried the magazine’s recipe and it was good, but it was not what I had envisioned in my head.  So, I started over and came up with my own creamy and delicious version.  It would be great for a game day party.  {I’m just saying. ;)}

They are super simple.  {The hardest part is just waiting for them to

I really enjoy fresh-baked bread-right from the oven warm, and so soft.  Mmmm….It really is a weakness for me.  I can guarantee that I will eat way too much of it.  Luckily though, I am not alone in this.  It is my entire family.  Everyone eats too much of it.  But it is so good.  And I love that when I have baked it I know exactly what is in it.  There are no preservatives or extra additions that may or may not be good for your body.

These breadsticks are definitely a weakness.  They are so

Ever notice how foods can become traditions?  I usually know exactly what each person in the family will request on special days like birthdays, etc.  Pasta Carbonara is my husband’s tradition . . . father’s day, his birthday, {or whenever I owe him a big favor}, this is it!   Who can blame him?  This is seriously good pasta!  Creamy carbonara with bacon just spells YUM!
