Happy 5th of July! I hope you all had a wonderful and safe 4th! We had a great time. We visited with family and friends. Watched fireworks. Lit some of our own. Filled ourselves up with copious amounts of guacamole, deviled eggs and BBQ pork. Oh and my mom made one heck of a cheesecake that I am definitely going to have to replicate. You’d think after eating all of that rich food that I would want to only eat celery today. And you’d be wrong. Well mostly wrong.

While the big meal is certainly what we all look forward to on Thanksgiving, the appetizers are one of my favorite parts too. We’ve always had trays of salami and cheese, pickles and olives, deviled eggs and, my favorite, the dips. This year, I thought I’d throw a new one in the mix with this [...]
