Everything Bagel Chicken Dip

I have been loving the everything bagel pretzels as a snack even though I shouldn’t be eating them.So I love petite, sweet peppers, and I have decided to use those instead as my chips.

I blended the following with a fork:

3/4 a brick of cream cheese, 1 can of chicken (drained), 1 tablespoon of Worcestershire, and 4 tablespoons of everything bagel seasoning mix.

This is creamy and savory…with the sweetness of the peppers…I am so excited to have this for lunch.

When Carmen and I were visiting family in Maryland just over the Potomac from DC, we went to the store and I found these…

We got two. The smell alone brought back so many memories from visiting Germany in my youth.  I can get the ones in the freezer in Florida…but these were made fresh.  Carmen and I shared these two over a couple of days.  So yummy.

Is there something you see in the store while on vacation that does this to you?

Christmas Goodies

We wanted to make some goodies for friends for Christmas this year. 


Almond Bark  – Milk Chocolate
Dry roasted peanuts
Pretzel rods

Begin by melting your almond bark in your crock pot.  This is the best way that I have found to melt chocolate.  You don’t have to constantly stir it, and it keeps it hot without over cooking.

Wal-Mart or your local grocery store candy section.
I use my small crock pot.
Add 1 jar of peanuts, and stir.
Drop by large spoonfuls onto wax paper.  Let cool.
Pretzels are dunked into the chocolate, then lay on wax paper, add sprinkles, let cool.
