I found this recipe while perusing Pinterest, as one does, to find a dip to make for this past Super Bowl Sunday. Decided on trying this, since it was quick and easy to put together and perfect for my Little Dipper crock pot. Now this recipe calls for canned crab meat, but after reading some less then favourable reviews on that ingredient option, I decided to steer clear. I chose to just use imitation flaked crab instead. So our recipe is not actually crab dip, but close enough 😉🦀
In my opinion, I was really happy I went with the imitation flaked crab, because it still turned out yummy for us! If we get the chance to buy real crab, will definitely try it that way, but until then, this is a more economical version ☺️ I also added half a red pepper for some colour and crunch, one more green onion and some chives. Since I felt there was lots of salt from the mayo and imitation crab, I used garlic powder and added a little bit of seasoning salt and a spot or two of Sriracha. With these additions, I think it helped the dip, and we really enjoyed it. Will add this recipe to the dips rotation we have during Super Bowl and holiday.
I had put a roasted turkey breast from our Thanksgiving dinner in the freezer. I wanted to use it up, so looked for an instant pot recipe to make. When I came across this one, I decided to make it since it was simple to put together, and pretty quick to cook in the instant pot. The end result turned out good, though I used cream instead of coconut milk and I used regular flour. I would say it definitely needs a lot more spice and herbs for our tastes, so when I make this next it’ll have more. To me it’s a good recipe, that just needs a little more oomph to it.
A new year is here!! 🎉 And after loads of festive treats and meals, it’s good to get back to normal. Though let’s be real, we still have some treats around 😉🍪🍫🍬
So today I chose to make this pumpkin butternut squash bisque, since I had leftover roasted pumpkin from the freezer I wanted to use up. Once prep was done, it cooked in 14mins on high pressure, which was great! As for the soup itself, it wasn’t bad, but honestly not too much flavour. Nothing more vegetables and spices couldn’t fix though. I would say it’s a good base and for now hot sauce will add just the right kick it needs for us this time around.
We got an Instant Pot for Black Friday in November and I love it!! Already made a pot roast dinner, which was great. So decided on making this recipe to take to my parents for New Year’s Eve. Can’t go wrong with only 3 ingredients, and I have never made meatballs with pop. They turned out pretty good…not too sweet and great either on its own or over rice. Will definitely make these again in 2019!
2018 was a pretty great year for my family, from taking our son to meet the ocean for the first time in Myrtle Beach with his grandparents, to graduating from his Neonatal Follow-Up Clinic as he was born a micro preemie. Makes one feel truly thankful 💕 At this time I’d like to wish all of you a very happy, healthy and fabulous 2019 ahead!! May you create new recipes and memories for yourselves and loved ones 🎉🍾🥂🎊
Hope you all had a wonderful day spent with family and friends yesterday!! Our Christmas Day was spent with family opening presents, playing and watching classic Christmas specials and movies ☺️🎄🎅
We had spent Christmas Eve making a treat, we’ll be giving away to family and friends, we still have to see as part of their gifts. I chose to make these holiday pretzel m&m kiss treats this year, because they were super easy and our 3 year old son could help out for some of them ☺🥨🍫
The most tedious part was taking off the wrapping for the Hershey Kisses. This time I made them according to the recipe with milk chocolate kisses, but next time I’ll use the candy cane kisses for the festive peppermint flavour🎄We’ve all enjoyed the combination of salty pretzel with sweet chocolate and these are much easier then making dipped pretzels. I will definitely make these again! ✔️
