Hi Friends! Man, it has sure been awhile since I’ve posted. Life here feels so crazy lately. Is it just me, or is everyone feeling that? The past year we’ve been the generals for our new home we’re building (fun, but crazy), my husband started a new job, balancing family life with 5 kiddos and running this biz. Phew! It makes me tired. Although crazy, I sure love every minute of our busy life. And I couldn’t be more grateful for each of you and your support of us these past 10 years. Deals to Meals has been around for so long and that is because of each of you. I truly love each of you so much and appreciate you spreading the word about what we do. After all these years, I still love what I do and couldn’t be happier to help each of you in a small way.

I’m excited to be jumping back into blogging. Sharing new recipes with you is a highlight of my job and this recipe will not disappoint. I watched The Pioneer Woman make this dip at the beginning of the year on the Food Network and I knew this was going to become a new family favorite. I’m not kidding, I have made this dip so many times since that day and people rave about it every time I make it! This is a crowd pleaser for sure. I tweaked her recipe a little and added some more flavor, but other than that, it’s plain perfection. Whether it’s for a simple vegetarian meal, a snack, a side dish or an appetizer, you are going to LOVE this recipe! Not to mention, most of the ingredients are all on sale this week, so login to Deals to Meals before you head out shopping and save some money.
