Party Dips!

We stayed home for the Super Bowl this year, not because we had nothing better to do, but to begin giving our half bathroom a makeover. Yes, watching the game with friends would have been fun, but we don't have many weekends with an entire Saturday free and most of a Sunday too!

To keep it festive, I made party dips. And nachos! The dips were fabulous. One was healthy and one was not. Both made me cry a little in a good way. And both were recommended to me by my friend. Yay! :)

Here are the links for the recipes: Tex Mex Black Bean Dip (courtesy of Cooking Light) and Jalapeno Popper Dip (courtesy of Big Red Kitchen via

Soooo good! Try them!!

The bathroom makeover is moving slowly. We had to remove wallpaper, which is a three step process for us. We steam the top layer off, go back and steam the glued paper layer, and finally, we steam off the glue. Then we'll skim coat all of the problem areas, prime it, and give her two coats of paint.

The wallpaper removal worked up my appetite, so I'm glad I had yummy snacks!

Do you have a favorite go-to party dip?

Hope you had a wonderful weekend!!


  1. I'm more of a plain jane, but when I dip, I like hummus or mild salsa

  2. YUM! My new favorite thing is those flat pretzel chip things dipped in garden vegetable cream cheese. So good... :)

    1. Mmm! Those little pretzel dealies are delicious!

  3. I like salsa. I prefer to eat the scoops with salsa/


I love to hear from you!
