Funfetti Cake Batter Dip!

This is SINFUL and only 3 ingredients to make!
3 tbsp. Funfetti cake mix
2 tbsp. plain yogurt (I used vanilla yogurt and it was excellent)
1 tbsp. cool whip (I was a little heavy handed with the cool whip)
Wisk cake mix and yogurt until smooth. Fold in cool whip. Refrigerate until serving. Serve with pretzels or animal crackers.
*I tripled the recipe measurements to have enough in the picture!*
Perfect for Super Bowl or any other party. Kids and adults eat this up!
I used the leftover cake mix to make Funfetti Cake Mix Cookies--AMAZING! Just like these Strawberry Cake Mix cookies. Coming soon! :)

Mexican Won Tons

Great appetizer for the Super Bowl!
  • 1 package of wonton wrappers (our Walmart sells these in the refrigerated produce section)
  • 1 pound pork sausage, cooked
  • 3 stalks green onions, chopped
  • 1 can rotel, drained.
  • 1 cup shredded sharp cheddar cheese (this is approximate. I generally just pour it in there, and I like more cheese than less).
  • 1.5 Tablespoons ranch dressing
Mix all of the ingredients until well blended. Scoop onto won tons and twist in the middle (dip fingers in water to help won tons stay closed).
Bake at 350 degrees for approx. 4 minutes (or until the edges get slightly golden). BE CAREFUL BECAUSE THEY WILL COOK FAST AND EVEN A SECOND OVER CAN CAUSE THEM TO BE NICE AND BLACK (I speak from experience). Allow to cool.
Serve warm. Pure DELICIOUSNESS.

7 Layer GREEK Dip

I recently made this 7 Layer Greek Dip for a New Year's Eve gathering. I made it in place of the typical 7 layer mexican taco dip that we've all had and loved but I was searching for something different! My daughter and I LOVE hummus and feta cheese so I knew between me and her it would be demolished.
I am very pleased with how easy and delicious it turned out. Everyone was eating on this the entire night. Do you notice the olives are only on 1/2? Yep, that was for my husband and anyone else who loathes olives. :)
Ingredients (in order):
1. Hummus (I used 1 garlic hummus and 1 plain hummus. If you have an awesome homemade recipe, use that. I was short on time.)
2. 1 cucumber (diced)
3. 1 red bell pepper (diced)
4. sun dried tomatoes (or regular tomatoes work. I love sun dried with anything greek)
5. kalamata olives (pitted and diced)
6. FRESH dill (chopped)
7. feta cheese --I NEVER use this sparingly. YUM!
You really can't screw it up. Add more or less. It is going to be delicious!
Serve with pita chips.

I'm totally making this again for Super Bowl. Can't wait.
