This spinach dip is not only easy to throw together, but also delicious. This creamy spinach dip has water chestnuts and onion mixed in for some crunch.
Ready for all the college football conference championship games tomorrow? After a rough week for the Buckeyes in spite of the win over Michigan I’m not entirely sure how I feel about the Big Ten game. I suppose the show must go on in spite of the tragic loss of Kosta Karageorge. My thoughts are with his family, biological and Buckeye-family.
With college football season nearing it’s end and pro football still going strong, dips and other snacky foods are in high demand. How about this creamy spinach dip which requires not cooking at all. Just mix and serve! Would be great served in a big bread bowl.

Everyone loves deviled eggs but they shouldn’t be limited to party gatherings. Have a craving? Whip up this single serving deviled egg and don’t worry about sharing.
Deviled eggs are a popular dish to bring to parties. But what if you are craving deviled eggs without the prospect of any food-related gatherings on the horizon? I say it is perfectly acceptable to boil one and egg make one for yourself anytime.
And to reflect back on yesterdays post, Ohio State beat Michigan State last night! Ohio State was looking a little off during the first half while Michigan State took full advantage of it. Thankfully they came alive in the second half and sealed the win. It was a great game to end the evening after stuffing myself at Friendsgiving – I will share more about that tomorrow.

It’s burger month! Crank up your turkey burgers with spicy mustard and sweet potato, served with spicy mustard-mayo and a pretzel roll.
It’s burger month! A month-long celebration of all things burger hosted by Kita (Pass the Sushi & Girl Carnivore) and joined by 30 other bloggers including myself. Every day this month each one of us is sharing a different burger recipe and to make the deal even more delicious we’re hosting a giveaway with prizes to help get your burger on. Just use the Rafflecopter widget located at the bottom of this post.
My burger is actually a turkey burger. A turkey burger mixed with sweet potato and smokey chipotle mustard, topped with a smokey chipotle mustard-mayo, and served on a pretzel bun. While I was at it I marinaded some zucchini and yellow squash in a mixture of olive oil and the same spicy mustard to grill along with the burgers. You may be thinking that mustard in every component is over-kill but I assure you it is not. The mustard added a different kick of flavor to each part. Why not slather the mustard on the burger bun too while you’re at it?

It’s the week leading up to Memorial weekend and it’s time to share some recipes to get ready for the first big grilling holiday of the year. But before hitting the grill you gotta think about the side-kicks. Check out my guest post today on Wishes and Dishes to get the recipe for my favorite potato salad made by my dad.

DAD’S CREAMY POTATO SALAD

Deviled potatoes are exactly what they sound like, potatoes with a deviled filling, and they are just as addicting as the classic deviled egg and potato skin appetizers.
Everyone loves deviled eggs – the creamy, tangy filling wins every time. But who’s to say that it can only be transported to your belly in the vehicle of a hard boiled egg white? I introduce to you, deviled potatoes. These potatoes are a combination of potato skins and deviled eggs. Roasted potatoes have their middles scooped out like potato skin or a yolk of a hard boiled egg which gets mashed up with all the usual suspects found in a deviled egg: mayonnaise, vinegar, mustard, and paprika. Top them off with crumbled bacon and then devour.
You might want to double the recipe if this is the only appetizer and you are serving more than 5 people, because that’s all it took for these tasty morsels to disappear.
I was skeptical at first. Pepperoni? On a deviled egg? Most deviled egg recipes I’ve had with extra/different ingredients than the traditional way haven’t been that great. But I just had to try these. They looked too interesting not to. And you know what? They are amazing! It took a lot of restraint to not eat them all myself. Thankfully I had friends over to help.
Now I have to figure out what to do with the remaining bag of mini pepperonis. Any ideas??
6 hard boiled eggs
3 Tbsp light mayonnaise
Salt and pepper to taste
12 mini turkey pepperoni
1 Tbsp shredded Asagio cheese (or Parmesan, or Mozzarella)
1 tsp diced fresh chives or scallions
- Slice eggs in half lengthwise, removing the yolk from the center of each egg. Place the yolks in a small bowl. Add the mayonnaise, salt and pepper to the bowl. Mix with a fork until creamy. Spoon into the center of each egg. Top with pepperoni, a sprinkling of asagio cheese, and a few fresh scallions for garnish. Enjoy!

Quick update from tornado land: On the way downtown last night for dinner, I noticed two cloud formations that, although not spinning, were certainly the right shape to be one. I told Brent I thought it may be the remnants of a tornado, but then we both thought that at tornado at its end simply disappears. However apparently before crossing the Mississippi, it was infact a tornado in West Memphis, AK which is right across the river. Yikes. On to happier thoughts…
Burgers and fries are the perfect pair. But sometimes I need a little more vegetable in my life which a potato cannot provide (sorry potato, I still love you). When I saw the words ‘zucchini fries’ I knew that was the solution. Especially if they are coated in Parmesan cheese and Panko bread crumbs, then baked instead of fried. Because no matter how much we try to deny it, just because the fried thing you are eating is a vegetable, does not make it a healthy snack.
To go along with the goat-cheese stuffed tomato basil chicken burgers, which were drizzled with balsamic vinegar, I whipped up a balsamic aioli to dip the zucchini in. Pure yum!
1/3 cup reduced fat mayonnaise
1 Tbsp balsamic vinegar
1/2 tsp salt
1 clove minced garlic
- In a small bowl combine the aioli ingredients. Refrigerate until ready to use.
2 medium zucchinis
1/2 cup Italian-seasoned Panko bread crumbs
1/4 cup crumbly Parmesan cheese (crumbly, not shreds)
- Preheat oven to 425. Line a baking sheet with aluminum foil and spray with non-stick cooking spray. Set aside.
- Combine bread crumbs and Parmesan cheese in a large plastic bag. Set aside.
- Whisk 2 eggs together in a large bowl and set aside.
- Trim zucchini. Cut crosswise in half, then cut each piece into 1/4-inch matchlike sticks; blot with a paper towel.
- Add zucchini to the bowl with eggs; toss to coat. Use tongs to place 1/4 of the zucchini in shaker bag; close bag and shake to evenly coat. Spread onto prepared baking sheet. Repeat with remaining zucchini.
- Bake for 10-12 minutes, flip the fries, and bake for another 10-12 minutes or until the zucchini is not soggy and the coating is crisp and golden brown. Serve immediately.
