Roasted Garlic and Asiago Dip

Excellent Dip! 2 changes. I used less cream cheese and more garlic, but otherwise, it was a wonderful taste. As one noted, I used a mix of cheese rather than just mozz on top.The dip was a hit. I served it in a dinner party and served them in individual ramikens which were really fun. […]

Breakfast Bake

This sounds great!! I may try halving the recipe using the smaller roll of biscuits and baking in an 8×8 pan. There’s only two of us. I don’t have the energy to make my own biscuits for it, but I’m sure it would be a wonderful substitution. Ingredients: 5 eggs 1/4 cup milk 16 oz […]

Pim’s Pad Thai

I made pad thai once and loved the results, though the only “unusual” ingredient listed was fish sauce. Since then I haven’t made it since; I seem to never make things I like more than once, I have no idea why. I really want to try this recipe since it will expose me to ingredients […]
