Tasty Eats!

When I saw that Hungry Girl had a new cookbook out I was so excited that I immediately requested it from the library. Well my requested copy FINALLY came in! Just in time for the LOST party and for me to make something tasty out of it!

I thought both of these recipes were tasty & quick. And no need to heat the stove & oven up, which was nice since it was in the 90s Sunday and very sticky & humid.

Place cream cheese in a large microwave safe dish and stir until smooth. Mix in Franks RedHot Pepper Sauce, mozzarella cheese, ranch dressing, & yogurt. Stir in chicken until throughly combined.

This recipe was so tasty and yummy. I think it would be really good mixed in with some chunkier chicken and tossed on a salad or as a spread on a veggie sandwich. My family loved eating the leftovers, very tasty indeed. 

Fruit Salsa

So I did not really use a recipe, I did go online and look at several different recipes, this recipe from Best Bites was pretty usefully to me. I mixed strawberries (cut), blackberries and raspberries and half an apple right before serving. 

You can make your own Cinnamon & Sugar Pita Chips... but why bother when you can pick up a bag from Archer Farms :)

I added a tablespoon or so of sugar, a squirt of lime juice and a dash of cinnamon. 

Super tasty. I love the recipes that are more guidelines than directions. 

What's cooking in your kitchen? Do you have any favorite recipes that you pull out for special occasions and parties?
