Warm Bacon and Caramelised Onion Dip

 Bacon and Caramelised Onion Dip is the ultimate appetizer! Simple to make, yet so flavourful and packed with sweet onion, smoky bacon and salty cheese. Perfect to pair with chips or veggies!

 New Year's Eve is tomorrow night and with the lockdown, we don't have any plans to go out and celebrate. We will spend a quiet night at home, playing board games with the kids, maybe do a little karaoke and enjoying yummy snacks. I kind of feel like all I've been doing since Christmas Eve is eating, especially since yesterday was my birthday!  Sometimes you just need an awesome snack on a special occasion. 

In the winter we are big fans of hot appetizers; dips in particular. Not only are they super easy to make, they are out of this world good. Everyone will go crazy over this one. Luxuriously creamy, with sweet caramelised onion, smoky bacon and salty cheese, this dip will be a hit every time you make it!

Warm Bacon and Caramelised Onion Dip

12 oz cream cheese
1/3 up sour cream
10 slices thick cut bacon, cooked and chopped
1 onion, sliced thin
1 cup grated Swiss cheese, divided
2 Tbs butter
1 tsp olive oil
1/4 C white wine
1/4 tsp salt
1/2 tsp black pepper

Add butter and olive oil to a medium skillet. Turn heat to medium-low and add onion. Allow onions to cook slowly and caramelise. This takes about 20-25 minutes so be patient so the onions do not burn. 

Once the onions begin to get a nice brown colour, add in the white wine and scrape up the brown bits for the bottom of the pan. Let cook until the wine has evaporated; about 5 minutes. Set aside to cool. 

In a medium bowl, blend the cream cheese and sour cream. Gently stir in onions, bacon, salt, and pepper. Fold in 1/2 cup of Swiss cheese. 

Spread dip into a small baking dish. Top with remaining cheese. Bake at 350 degrees for about 25 minutes or until sides are hot and bubbly.Garnish with additional bacon and chopped green onion.

No Yeast Old Fashion Cinnamon Rolls

 These delicious cinnamon sticky rolls have been in my family for over 40 yrs. No yeast is required, so you can whip up a batch of these in no time. Still tender, sticky sweet and delicious! Ever since I can remember Mom would make these as a special treat. It wasn't too often, but every once in a while, we'd come home to these no yeast cinnamon rolls, as an after school snack. Growing up, this is what I thought cinnamon rolls were. I wasn't aware that there was a yeast version of cinnamon rolls. As much as I LOVE the yeast version, this no yeast version seems to make an appearance more frequently here at home.  Since there is no yeast in the dough, it does not need to rise for 30 minutes before being rolled out and baked. When I worked in the retirement home the residents were always excited when I made these cinnamon rolls. They said it reminded them of their childhood. It was amazing seeing how happy a simple recipe could make them. I don't make these very often and

 In this AMAZING crockpot recipe, t ender chicken is bursting with flavour and cooked a garlic and brown sugar glaze. Disclaimer: This post may contain affiliate links.

I originally saw versions of this recipe on Pinterest and it had my tummy rumbling so hard, that I knew I had to make it. I had chicken in the freezer, so decided to make this chicken on a day where I would be at school all day. Nothing like walking into the most amazing smell, when you get home from a busy day of work!  I love that this recipe is so simple, yet it is out of this world delicious. Sweet and savory combine, to coat this tender chicken. It literally fell apart as I tried to remove it from the crock pot. Once tossed with the thickened glaze, I served it with cooked rice/fried rice and some fresh snap peas. It was an amazingly fantastic crock pot meal, that I will be making again and again.  Crockpot Brown

Peanut Butter Confetti Squares

 A mixture of peanut butter and butterscotch chips, coat colourful marshmallows, for a simple, fun and easy holiday treat! My family calls these Galettes Froides, but most people know these as confetti squares. My grandmothers would make these for Christmas, and Mom has been making these desserts at Christmas time, since I can remember. They've always been my favourite because of the use of the rainbow marshmallows. There's just something about the colours that make these looks so yummy. These squares couldn't be more simple to make and I love that they are no bake as well. Some people use regular white marshmallows, some people use chunky peanut butter and some people add coconut. I like them each and every way I can get them. It wouldn't be Christmas without these confetti squares making an appearance.
