This post is brought to you buy Dean’s Dairy Dip. Dean’s sent us a challenge: Go to a local restaurant, dine on a nice meal, then recreate part of the meal using one of Dean’s dips. Challenge accepted. (This must be what Bobby Flay felt like on all those Throwdowns). The lovely ladies and I dined at The Porch last week, where we stuffed our faces with meatballs, pizzas, cornbread (recipe in our new book!), and these pork pot stickers.

*Opens fridge. Stares into fridge* “I have nothing to eat!” How many times do you tell yourself this? Me, quite often. Just as much as I tell myself “I have nothing to wear!” (Both statements, completely false all the time.) Enter: Quiche. One of my favorite dishes and something you probably can always make when you think “I have nothing to eat!” With a pre-made pie shell and just a few simple ingredients, you can have yourself a warm meal in little over an hour. The variation here is broccoli and cheese, but I’ve also make ham and cheese quiches… Read More →
