Zesty Crab Dip

Zesty Crab Dip

I have a confession. I shared this post over on Tatertots & Jello last December and I totally forgot to share it over here. And that is a BIG mistake on my part. Mostly because this is one of my top 10 FAVORITE recipes of all time. This recipe was given to me by a dear friend and I love her to death for giving it to me! But seriously. If this amazingly Zesty Crab Dip is anywhere near me… I hoard it… in a get-the-heck-away-from-me-I’m-going-to-lick-the-bowl-clean kind of way. This is definitely a recipe you want in your arsenal especially with all the football parties coming up!

20-Minute BBQ Cups

Howdy all! Apparently I’m southern today. I blame my near-death experience yesterday. What happened you might ask? I was sitting nicely on my patio, not moving, staining my table {sneak at upcoming project!!} when I felt a sharp pain in my right knee. I wait about a second and it gets seriously intense. I rub at it and see a wasp come flying out from under the table. What’s a girl to do? Most would be upset. Not me. I go into full.on.panic. I run inside as fast as I can and run to the medicine cabinet where I keep my epi-pen. That’s right… I’m deathly allergic to bee stings. I rush to my phone and call my hubby to get home STAT! Armed with my pen, I desperately tried to get control of my breathing. MUST. STOP. HYPERVENTILATING! After about 20 minutes I feel like I’m just a little short of breath. Should I have used my epi-pen? Maybe. Did I? No. Nurses make the worst patients, people. {FYI, if I ever felt like I was in serious danger I wouldn’t have hesitated to call 911}. Hubby’s been home to keep an eye on me and my knee is nice and swollen. Hooray.

20-Minute BBQ Cups

I’m not one to panic. Especially not in emergency situations. I’m a nurse, I’m trained to handle emergencies. But apparently when it comes to me… I freak. I almost died. Then I didn’t. What does that have to do with today’s recipe? Absolutely nothing. But I can write about whatever I want. 😉 And I thought you should all know of how almost.poop.myself scared I was.

So back to the foods. I whipped these up earlier this week and they were ah.mazing. They are definitely going on the “to make again” list. And they don’t take any longer than 20-minutes to make… baking and all! So when you need a quick recipe that will definitely impress, make these fantastic 20-Minute BBQ Cups!

Creamy Vanilla Fruit Dip & Fruit Kabobs

Last week was our week to bring snacks to our bible study. I was excited to make some new recipes to impress our friends but I didn’t have a lot of time to make these snacks! Did I mention, I’ve been insanely busy!? Fruit trays are always a great option but I wanted to give it a little twist plus add a great fruit dip! So I whipped up a Creamy Vanilla Fruit Dip & Fruit Kabobs!

Coconut Shrimp

Good Monday to all of you! I hope you had a fantastic weekend. I sure did! I’m going to start the week off by teasing your tastebuds!

The hubby is a big fan of seafood. Me? Not so much. I know, I know. “It’s good for you and blah, blah, blah.” I have yet to find a seafood that I like. Even shrimp.

I’ve tried fresh salmon. Nope. I’ve tried lobster. Ehh. Oh wait… I did enjoy that fresh Maryland crab I had when I was 13. So maybe crab. That’s it.

But the hubby loves it! So every once in a while I decide to be a nice wife and whip him up a batch of his favorites: coconut shrimp.
