Simple, yet special, recipes for the home chef.

Smoky Barbecue Chicken, Bacon & Corn Dip

Smoky Barbecue Chicken, Bacon & Corn Dip - All the flavors of a summer barbecue party in a party-perfect chip dip! |

I’m fairly certain that our neighbors think we are crazy. I used to have a recipe testing job that involved testing recipes in the most UN-seasonal way possible. Because I worked for a publishing company, and summer issues of magazines had to be worked on in the winter (and vice versa), I was regularly seen stomping my snow boots out to the grill with a plate of hamburgers at 8am in January. Conversely, my neighbors could also see me sitting on my front porch for fresh air in July, when the house was too darn hot from the Thanksgiving turkey that was roasting in the oven.

Candied Meyer Lemon Cookies

Candied Meyer Lemon Cookies - These cookies are a beautiful way to celebrate seasonal Meyer lemons! Ginger-spiced sugar cookies are topped with rich cream cheese frosting and decorated with a thin slice of candied lemon. |

I’m excited to announce that as of this month, I’ll be a contributor to Food Fanatic. If you haven’t checked out Food Fanatic yet, it’s a food and recipe website featuring some of the best food bloggers around. Each blogger is a “fanatic” about something, and the recipes they contribute each month focus on that

Spinach & Artichoke Dip Party Flatbread

Spinach & Artichoke Dip Party Flatbread - The combination of pizza and spinach-artichoke dip makes this a game-day instant classic! |

I’m not even going to tell you again how much I love dip. This blog should have been called Foxes Love DIP, because I feel like I am talking about dip, making dip and photographing dip all the time. We all know it’s not a party until somebody breaks out the spinach and artichoke dip. But

Everything Bagel Breadsticks with Smoked Salmon Dip - A party-perfect take on a breakfast classic! |

I know what you’re thinking: how many recipes is this girl going to invent that taste like everything bagels without actually being everything bagels? Goooooood question. Truthfully, there’s no end in sight for my love of everything bagel seasoning mix and ideas to use it. I’ve already made (and loved) everything bagel quinoa cakes, crusted

Mini Blood Orange & Frozen Yogurt Tarts

Mini Blood Orange & Frozen Yogurt Tarts - A simple, fast and beautiful dessert that highlights seasonal citrus. |

Blood oranges kind of fascinate me. Like, who discovered them, and who decided “Oh yeah, these are probably safe to eat”? And who thought it was a great idea to name them blood oranges? Ultimately, none of these things matter, because I will always squeal in delight as soon as I seem them in the grocery store

Roasted Poblano & White Bean Dip

Roasted Poblano & White Bean Dip - Who needs store-bought bean dip when you can make a better version at home? |

For pretty much my whole life, “bean dip” has meant that little can of Frito-Lay bean dip that they sell below the tortilla chips. I mean, that stuff is totally delicious and makes a regular appearance at our Saturday Night Taco Night. But I thought today, in anticipation of the big game coming up in

Hazelnut Egg Cream

Hazelnut Egg Cream - An adult version of the classic soda fountain drink, kicked up with hazelnut liqueur (non-alcoholic version also). |

I’m really not a very picky eater, but sometimes the names of certain foods will really freak me out. For example, corned beef. Up until I made my own corned beef in Charcuterie class in culinary school, I really thought it was some sort of beef-soaking-in-corn-filled-water situation. Shudder. Of course, that’s not true at all, but I’m
