I am trying to cut back on the dairy and it is hard to find dairy free items that actually taste good. I have found some cream cheese that pretty much tastes the same so I knew I could make my favorite Chinese appetizer! I found a lot of different …

This weekend, I traveled to Michigan for a First Communion, so I took the weekend off of cooking. My cousins however, did not take a weekend off and put on a great Communion party. We had a lot of great food and desserts. I am still full from the party yesterday.
My cousin has been making this Mexican Dip for as long as I can remember. It is a staple at every party she throws. It has always been a favorite dip of mine and I always eat way too much of it! Recipe Below:
Mix 16oz of Sour Cream with 1 packet of Taco Seasoning of your choice. After you mix it, put it on the bottom of the dish. On top of the mixture layer cheese, shredded lettuce, tomatoes, and green onions. Very easy to make and very delicious!
My younger cousin has become quite the professional in the kitchen and made some dipped strawberries for the occasion. I think we can all agree they look a lot better than my “carrot” dipped strawberries from Easter. She must have done this before! She dipped them in chocolate and then used a spoon to splatter the white chocolate onto them.
Last, but not least, my cousins have their own Edible Arrangement Kit. You can all buy one at Bed, Bath, and Beyond. It really is very cool and looked very use to use! The kit comes with different shapes, but for the Communion, they chose stars. They came out great!
Very good party all around, and thanks for letting me take a weekend off!
Tonight is the big game and everyone is preparing their appetizers to eat during the game. I really only watch the game for the commercials. The best part of a Super Bowl party is the food. I wish I could say I had a winner for you, but unfortunately I did not enjoy this appetizer I made. It is a simple one and doesn’t take very long at all to make. I present to you Apricot Ginger Shrimp.
Apricot Ginger Sauce:
3/4 Cup Apricot Preserves
1 Tablespoon Ground Ginger (I think it is best to use as much as you think, I wish I would have used less)
1/4 Teaspoon Salt
Put in a saucepan and stir until melted. Done!
*When it is off heat, the sauce becomes more of a jam than a sauce. You will need to keep stirring it if you are putting it out as a dip.
I think if I liked ginger I would have liked it. It wasn’t horrible. It is confirmed, I hate ginger.
Enjoy the game!
