I’ve been playing around lately with new ideas for dips. We took a Crab Rangoon and turned it inside out, creating a creamy crab dip with Wonton Chips on the side. This Hot Reuben Dip is made with that kind of twist in mind. Take the yummy ingredients that make The Classic Reuben Sandwich so popular and serve it with Jewish rye Party bread. One more easy crowd pleasing recipe to add to your next finger food spread.Continue reading »
The first White BBQ Sauce I ever had was from Fox Bros. Bar-B-Q in Atlanta. We catered a company event and brought in a full spread of their pulled pork, beef brisket, and smoked chicken. Along with the meat, they provided three distinct BBQ Sauces, one of which was White BBQ Sauce. It seemed odd and quite appealing to this girl who loves all things creamy. Holy Wow! was the first thing I thought when I tasted it.
We have since recreated this mayonnaise & vinegar based BBQ sauce at home. It’s creamy yes, but has a nice punch from the horseradish and creole mustard. Black pepper and garlic round out the depth of flavor. From what we’ve discovered White BBQ Sauce is a Northern Alabama favorite. I can tell you, we Georgians have become quite fond of it too.Continue reading »

Nothing like a good spicy Bloody Mary to wake up the taste buds and catch your attention. Gosh I love them. Now that the whole world is caught in a smoothie, vegenator, super blender craze I envision the Bloody Mary reborn. We’ve already fallen in love with Green Bloody Mary’s and recently enjoyed a version made with Sake as well. I think I need to dedicate an entire post to Bloody Mary’s or better yet cocktail inspired recipes, but for today we’ll focus on this lovely Bloody Mary Dressing.Continue reading »
