RO*TEL and VELVEETA Famous Queso Dip
Kraft and ConAgra gave me VELVEETA and RO*TEL products for this sponsored post. For me, every rich and creamy bite of RO*TEL and VELVEETA Queso dip is oozing with nostalgia. Just one dunk transports me back to my childhood self, a gangly thing with a never-ending appetite. Years later, I still remember that first taste like it was yesterday, every time I make the recipe. And I do make the recipe – all the time! It’s the star of every tailgate, birthday and awards show party I throw!

Recipe: Beef and Bean Chili with Bittersweet Chocolate
Everyone has a favorite chili recipe. Mine will always be my mother’s, complete with ground beef and a packet of taco seasoning. It may not be gourmet, but it’s pure comfort food to me. It’s also never quite tasted the same when I’ve tried to make it—there’s something about eating it at my parents’ home, wrapped up in a blanket while sitting around the fire that just makes it that much better.

Recipe: Crab Cakes with Pineapple-Mango Salsa
It seems that crab cakes are a shamefully neglected weeknight eat, which is a bummer, really, considering how lightning fast they go from idea to table. My fruit and veggie-filled version includes healthy bell peppers packed right inside the patties, a dollop of zesty fruit salsa on top, and my latest find: no mess from PAM Coconut Oil Spray. Lately I’ve been trying to incorporate healthier fats into my diet, but the one that eluded me has been the ever-so-popular coconut oil.

Recipe: Shaved Brussels Sprouts with Sautéed Shallots
For years, Brussels sprouts were the ugly duckling of the vegetable world: No one wanted to eat the wan little green cabbages with the especially cruciferous flavor. Times have changed. Cooking techniques of yore (hi, Mom!) typically led to pale, wilted sprouts and a kitchen that smelled like sulfur. Thanks to innovative cooking techniques and technology, Brussels sprouts are now one of the most beloved winter vegetables.

Recipe: Lemonade Tarts
tarts I browsed my cookbook library for inspiration; there were all sorts of recipes for lemon pies and lemon bars, but they all involved making a custard over the stove or whipping up an egg white meringue. I wanted something even easier. What can I say, when I need sweets, I need them now. Or yesterday.I decided to make my own version of lemon tarts by adapting the classic key lime pie.

Recipe: Triple Chocolate Chip Brownies
Finding the perfect brownie recipe is as personal as driving a manual versus an automatic, or choosing boxers over briefs. Some people like their brownies gooey, fudgy, and on the cusp of raw. Others like them fluffy, cakelike, and cooked all the way through. But part of the beauty in finding your favorite is not in the actual brownie but in the quest. You’ve got to kiss a lot of frogs to land the prince; you’ve got to bake a lot of brownies to find “the one.
