Spicy Cheesy Corn Dip!

Hope you all enjoyed the SuperBowl and got to eat lots of yummy appetizers and burgers! I am a new football fan – getting into it more and more, year after year!!! I had a lovely time laughing at how silly the Broncos were playing and was basically blown away by the Seahawks defense and skill. BOW. Also, surprisingly, I enjoyed the Bruno Mars and RHCP performance during halftime A LOT. I don’t even like Bruno, but I might have just been converted into a fan! Such a great and entertaining old school performer – classy! (Then I came home and re-watched Beyonce’s performance last year and basically she still did it best – BOW AGAIN). Anyway, I was feeling lazy, compared to Superbowl last year when I made pretzel wrapped hotdogs and kale/quinoa cakes:

Although lazy, I managed to whip up a quick batch of chocolate chip cookies, always a crowd pleaser, and an easy spicy cheesy corn dip to go with the endless amounts of tortilla chips. I have to say the dip was super delicious!!! Now that football is over, there’s still basketball so serve this dip up at the next bball party!

Baba Ghanoush!

After a long weekend in sin I needed a huge veggie detox to flush out my system – also I crave lettuce and crispness when I’m hungover. LOL I know it sounds really weird but I really like bland things the morning after. I even bought a few ready made salads from TJ and brought it. It was the perfect idea! I came back and of course SD is crazy hot and I ended up buying hella veggies to make gourmet salads. I think I spent like $75 on groceries. Sort of crazy. But then again I am a crazy veggie fanatic. Don’t judge. For those of you who don’t like veggies, there are ways to make veggies taste good! For example this eggplant dip – baba ghanoush. It is Lebanese and is usually served as a dip or it can be used to be added to other dishes. This is a great dish to serve at a bougie Superbowl party, late afternoon snack, or part of dinner. It even lasts about 5 days in the fridge. It’s so perfect!!!
