My Inspiration . . .

I've always had a love for baking, but it wasn't until I was in college that I had a desire to learn how to cook. In 2009, I decided to start my own cooking blog so I could access my recipes from anywhere, and was born.

I love trying new recipes and finding ways to make them healthier & happier on the hips! I love everything about food: the taste, the smells, the presentation, the experimenting, etc. I love to entertain, so I figured this was a great way to bring people together. Hope you enjoy trying out some of the recipes. Happy cooking!

Neiman Marcus Dip

{ Prep Time: 10 mins / Cooking Time: 30 mins / Yields: 4-6 servings }

1/2 cup slivered almonds, toasted
6-8 slices bacon, cooked, crumbled and cooled
2 cup sharp cheddar cheese, grated
2-3 green onions, thinly sliced
3/4 cup mayonnaise
salt, to taste
Triscuits, wheat thins, or Ritz crackers

1. Place slices of bacon in a single layer on a baking sheet, and place in oven. Then turn the oven on and preheat to 425 degrees. (Bacon will be cooking during this time, and it's part of the process.) Bake for 30-35 minutes. Once bacon is cooked to desired consistency, remove from oven and set aside.
2. Lower oven temperature to 350 degrees. Give oven a few minutes to cool so you don't burn your almonds. Spread almonds onto a baking sheet in a single layer and toast for 10 minutes. Remove from oven, set aside and let cool.
3. Shred cheddar cheese. (If you're in a pinch, and you don't have time to shred your own cheese, you can buy the shredded cheese from the grocery. But it has a coating on it, so the flavor will be a little different.) Dice onions and bacon.
4. Mix all ingredients together in a medium bowl, and stir until well combined. Serve with your choice of crackers at room temperature.
