Welcome to my little world- I am thrilled that you are here. My most sincere hope is that this little blog is a source of laughter, inspiration and some seriously fabulous food (even if it is vegan!). Is it possible to maintain a vegetarian lifestyle below the Mason Dixon line? Come along with me and find out as I pound the pavement, travel and eat my way through life. Cheers!

Irresistible Appetizer Recipe


 I am a true grazer, perhaps some of you can relate. Give me a cheese platter with deliciously stinky cheese, interesting dips and some marcona almonds and I will joyfully graze for hours. As such, I am on a constant search for new dips to delight the palette. While snowed in last week, I tried this recipe ( a jazzed up version of a Weight Watchers recipe) and couldn't believe the results. Enjoy!

Sun-dried Tomato & Roasted Red Pepper Dip

1/2 cup roasted red peppers (jarred)
1 cup sun-dried tomatoes  (packed in oil)
3/4 cup crumbled feta cheese
Juice of one lemon
1 palmful of fresh parsley
1-2 pickled jalapeño peppers
1 garlic clove, minced
1 cup sour cream
1 block of 1/3 fat cream cheese (at room temperature)
Salt
Freshly cracked black pepper

Combine first 6 ingredients in a food processor and pulse until well blended. Add the sour cream, cream cheese, salt and pepper and puree. Transfer to serving bowl and chill in refrigerator for an hour. Serve with rice crackers, crostini or favorite vegetables. Also works well as a sandwich spread.
