Dip In #LMDconnector

We are a family who loves to dip.

I often have a dip prepared as an after school snack for the kids when they arrive home.  From veggies, to crackers, to naan bread it's all good around here.   While dips are a kid-friendly snack, they are also fantastic party appetizers.  As awards season is in full swing, many are hosting and enjoying home parties and get-togethers to enjoy great company and delicious party snacks!

Let Life Made Delicious be your guide to great food, this awards season.

Today's confession -  I am not keen on watching any of the awards shows.  {gasp}  Yet, that doesn't stop me from checking out some recipes, which would make any awards party shine.  While I am partial to dips, I also love any and all finger foods.  Life Made Delicious has quick and tasty ideas to make your party finger-licking.

I love the recipe resource to be found at Life Made Delicious, yet, I am still a recipe book kind of girl at heart.  So, I brought out my copy of Betty Crocker Cookbook to take a peek for some award-worthy party recipes.

Finding a whole appetizer section in the cookbook, I even learned a thing or two.

The first thing I noticed, is there are all kinds of appetizers.

  • tapas
  • spreads
  • crudites
  • canapes
Deciding to take a break from dips, I found an old favourite, which I had forgotten about.  Deviled Eggs

I love deviled eggs, and found some great twists on the classic appetizer.

Try Taco Deviled Eggs.  Omit mustard.  Increase mayonnaise to 1/4 cup.  Mix 1 teaspoon dry taco seasoning mix into yolk mixture.  Stir in 1 tablespoon of well-drained chopped ripe olives, 2 tablespoons of  well-drained seeded tomato and one thinly sliced green onion.  Garnish with a drizzle of taco sauce or a small spoonful of salsa and diced avocado.   (Recipe taken from Betty Crocker Cookbook)

While it is true that you probably won't find me sitting on the edge of my seat awaiting to hear who the winner is....

Yet, I may just be found enjoying a few snacks made especially for sharing with my family!

I'm a huge entertainer. I love throwing dinner parties and hosting events at our place. I find finger foods, tapas, and other items like that are fabulous when you've got a lot of guests.

Love this post! :)
