I made this recipe for our recent housewarming party, and it was a hit! We were going for kind of a “seaside” theme, and this shrimp dip was a great choice.
The recipe came from user prissycat at allrecipes.com. The only change I made was adding a few drops of red food coloring at the end to give it more of a pinkish color. (Oh, and we made a quadruple recipe… ha ha!)
8 oz cream cheese
8 oz sour cream
1 lemon, juiced (or 2 Tbsp lemon juice)
1/2 0.7-oz pkg dry Italian salad dressing mix
4.5 oz can shrimp, rinsed and drained
In a medium bowl, combine cream cheese and sour cream and blend with an electric mixer on medium speed. Add lemon juice and dressing mix; mix well. Add in shrimp and mix. Chill dip overnight and serve.
I had some girlfriends over for a Fondue Party on Friday night. I hadn’t actually made fondue before, so it might not have been the best idea… Anyway, I used some recipes I found online and adapted them slightly. This was the cheese fondue recipe I used. It tasted a bit more like wine than I was expecting, but was easy to make and VERY tasty.
1 clove garlic, cut in half
1 c dry white wine
4 c shredded Swiss
2 Tbsp grated Romano
3 Tbsp flour
1/8 tsp nutmeg
Rub a 1-quart round casserole dish with the garlic. Pour wine into casserole dish and microwave high for 1½ minutes or until bubbles form (not boiling). Combine Swiss, Romano, flour, and nutmeg. Add to wine and microwave for 3 to 4 minutes or until cheese is completely melted, stirring often. Transfer to fondue pot.
