Lemon Pie Dip

Lemon Pie Dip

No cook recipes for dessert are great for guests and impatient kiddos when you can just grab something from the fridge to serve up in minutes. And they are even better when dessert looks and tastes like it took you hours to prepare, when you really whipped it up in minutes. Lemon pie dip takes just ten minutes to prepare, with only two basic ingredients that you might already have in the kitchen. Take the time to empty out the {Read More}

We love making appetizers for events that we attend. Even better is when they can be made ahead of time and frozen until needed.

We eat a lot of chicken in this house. We all love chicken. The challenge is to come up with new recipes so that we never get tired of eating chicken and with the launch of Pinterest years ago, that never seems to be a challenge.
