Meg in her dorm room at Baylor
I enjoyed cooking different fun, new recipes this summer. I didn't think we had as many family "sit-down" meals as I had hoped but it was all good. I will try to keep posting on occasion. I need to eat healthier so I will try to find some new, yummy, healthy recipes to share.
We were going to a friend's pool to swim the week before the girls left. I didn't have much time and needed a quick appetizer. I had all of these ingredients on hand. And wow, we loved it. This Caramelized Onion Dip from RealSimple.com was the bomb.
Caramelized Onion Dip (adapted from RealSimple.com)
2 Tbsp butter
2 medium onions, thinly sliced
kosher salt and black pepper
1 8 oz. bar cream cheese, at room temperature
1 cup sour cream
2 Tbsp chopped fresh chives
Potato and vegetable chips for dipping
Melt butter in a large skillet over medium-low heat. Add the onions and 1/2 tsp kosher salt and cook, stirring occasionally, until deep golden brow, 30 - 35 minutes. Remove from heat and let cool. In a medium bowl, mix together the onions, cream cheese, sour cream chives, 1/4 tsp salt and 1/8 tsp pepper. Serve with chips.
