3 Dips-Guaranteed Delicious
December 16, 2011
One of the Things I Know is that Christmas at our place focuses on catching up with family and friends, eating, drinking and entertaining (the kids entertain us). We recently moved to a location that is a day trip from the city for our friends when they come to visit. When we organise “catch -ups” nourishment for all is a requirement!
I like to make my own dips from fresh ingredients rather than buy prepared ones. My pantry is regularly stocked with the required ingredients to at least make Hommus. I always have crackers or a bread suitable for dipping so that any drop in visitors, or those who choose to stay on later than expected, can be offered nibbles. I often make a dip for us, especially in summer as I enjoy using them as a spread or with crackers in the late afternoon while waiting for Mr Fresh to arrive home from work. Punky, (almost 4years) enjoys having a dip on the side of his plate for using to dip his salad ingredients.
The three dips below are the ones that I most commonly make:
Visitors to our house commonly request my Basil Pesto. I got the recipe originally from Brenda, one of my mum’s friends but I have changed the recipe since then (as I do) It is a rare privilege to be given a recipe by Brenda, it is guaranteed to be amazing. I would never publish a recipe without permission, I hope she doesn’t mind me writing up a variation of hers here. (That leaves yours a secret Brenda!)
Another dip that is a summer favorite is my Spinach Dip. What is your favourite?
