Peppery Cheese Dip

Mozzarella, cheddar, green chiles, pepperoni, black olives and mayonnaise.

Basic Crudite Dip

Mayonnaise, sour cream, lemon juice, sugar, onion powder, garlic powder, oregano, dill, chives, thyme, parsley, tarragon, salt and pepper.

Tomato Salsa

Tomatoes, onion, jalapeno, lime juice, cilantro, salt and pepper.

Pepper Meatballs

Onion, green bell peppers, ground beef, white rice, egg, salt, pepper and condensed tomato soup. You can keep a Crock-Pot on low and place skewers out for serving.


I highlighted all of my favourites! I imagined in my head, if I were actually throwing a holiday gathering, what would I serve! How about you?

The ingredients are not astronomical in cost. As for the Basic Crudite Dip. if I could not find all of the ingredients, there would be no catastrophe. I think the dip would still be good. What do you think?

I give this cookbook a 5-star rating!
