We are having the in-laws over for Labor Day and one thing that drives me crazy is how much the extended family likes to compare my store bought food to the "amazing" parties the sister in law has because she slaves over a stove all day...and so on and so on. Now I am a very busy lady so I needed to get some food that looks like I did all the work without actually doing anything. The hot food is going to be a little bit of a chore but I have my appetizers and desserts covered-who doesn't like fresh vegetables/fruit and pita with dip at a cookout! Thanks to The Gourmet Cupboard by Kari I am going to have the best dips imaginable. All I need to do is mix in sour cream and I will have an amazing dip that is full of flavor that any person would love to claim as their own. Now I will just have to pull out the dip tray and buy the vegetables and we are all set. The possibilities of dips available is endless including the delicious chocolate chip cheesecake dip featured below:just add cream cheese, vanilla, and butter to make this amazing treat! I can't wait to their faces when this is presented....who thought cooking could be so easy and elegent!
