Come along with me as I journal about my latest cooking and gardening adventures. Discover what grows in my zone five garden, and see what new recipes I try from my cookbook collection each week.

As I share recipes and information from my kitchen, I invite readers to comment and share ideas along with me in this blog. I am looking to increase followers to my blog, so that I may learn more about cooking and gardening.

Since moving to Midland, Michigan, I have been reading and researching many cooking journals, cookbooks and collected recipes from the past thirty years. Organizing pictures of gardens I enjoy has also been a joy for me, as I continue to learn about garden design and horticulture.

college football appetizer dip

tomorrow is another great college football Saturday with all the teams matching up for another win on the path to the holiday bowl game events.

here is a wonderful recipe for a hot dip that can be paired with crackers, tortilla chips or even celery and pita crisps.  this one is easy and well received by sports fans everywhere.  the dip can even be prepared ahead and kept in the refrigerator until game time, when it will take only 25 minutes to bake and be ready for the party.

to make the dip:  soften and spread 8 ounces of low fat cream cheese on the bottom of a ceramic dish or pie plate.  then layer about 6 ounces of salsa, any flavor.  then top with 8 ounces of grated sharp cheddar cheese, one small can of sliced olives, and then chop one bunch of green onions to garnish the top of the dish.  bake at 350 degrees for 25 minutes and enjoy.  i promise this will become one of your favorite hot dips for football game events.
