Back to the grind today booo! In all honesty I did have a very nice, relaxing break and I am glad to get back into a routine. We had two trips which were lovely. One was to NYC to see UNC take on Rutgers at Madison Square Garden. The other was meeting Blair’s family in Nashville to see the Music City Bowl!! We also were able to spend New Year’s there and spend some time with my aunt, uncle, and cousins.
Yes, I am still sharing recipes from that wine party. I guess I didn’t realize how much food I made for it. Only two more recipes to share! So I have a new secret obsession with dessert dips, ever since my co-worker made the cannoli dip for salad bar, I can’t seem to get them out of my head. I stumbled upon this blog the other day and saw this recipe. I knew I had to make it. Definitely easy to make and delicious to eat. I also made this the day before and then served it with scooby snacks.
Below is a run down of the desserts I made for the dessert bar, which is pictured above. I have been wanting to do a dessert bar for the longest time and knew this was the perfect opportunity. Not quite as fabulous as other ones I have seen, but not bad for my first try!
