About Me

I have been cooking my way through life for over 50 years, beginning with mud pies as a child. I've turned a corner now and feel a Renaissance in my life. Recipes and Random Thoughts is my personal spin in a blog about how to prepare good food and how it prepares you for life. I want to share with you, honest to goodness food punctuated with perspective from the special memories and moments that have marked my journey.

Creamy Bacon Holiday Dip

As the saying goes, "if you're going to sin, sin big".

  Every year for the past  13 or so, some of my girl friends and I retreat to the mountains just before Thanksgiving to prepare ourselves for the oncoming holiday season.  We relax, eat, drink, sleep, shop and talk alot.  One of the girls brought a yummy spread this year.  She says men love it, well women do too!

This is the kind of rich spread that temps everyone to break that vow not to gain an ounce during the holidays.  But just a bite won't hurt, will it?   Maybe just one more and then I'll walk away.  Oh, well dive in, it Christmas isn't it?
 8 oz. cream cheese, softened
1 cup grated Swiss Cheese
1/2 cup mayonnaise
2  tbls (or more) green onions thinly sliced
8 strips bacon cooked & crumbled
1/2 cup Ritz cracker crumbled

Mix first four ingredients and spread in a small baking dish.  Top with crumbled bacon and cracker crumbs.  Bake at 350 degrees for 20-25 minutes and serve with your favorite crackers.
