Dips and Spreads

World's Easiest and Most Amazing Two-Ingredient Dip

Rating: Unrated
This creamy dip is great for all things potato (fries and chips especially) and also makes a great steak dip. It's even good spread on a roast beef sandwich! Everyone loves it, and no one can guess what's in it. The combination of the two ingredients is surprisingly different than either alone. I strongly encourage using Kikkoman® soy sauce, as other brands I have tried tasted very different and not nearly as good.

Russian Honey Cake

Rating: Unrated
There are 3 different ways to make this cake…the hard way, the harder way, and the way we're gonna do it--the hardest way. Because it's that worth it. The tiny amount of bitterness we get from the burnt honey really is the secret here, and the slightly tangy whipped cream frosting provides a bit of acidity and lovely light texture; and unlike other frostings, it's not too sweet.

Spaghetti Squash Au Gratin

This recipe is quick to prepare and a great alternative for a lower-carbohydrate, lower-calorie option in place of a potato side dish. My husband is a meat-and-potatoes kind of guy and even he loved this recipe.

Quesadilla Salvadorena

Rating: Unrated

Quesadilla Salvadorena is a moist, sweet, cheese pound cake. The key to this recipe is the type of cheese used, Parmesan cheese. I invented this recipe to match the pre-made quesadilla you find at the grocery stores. Buen provecho!
