Baby shower recipes

So a couple yummy food items stood out from Saturday’s shower. The pink/red punch, the garlic hummus, & the fruit dip. 

B used Macaroni & Cheesecake’s punch recipe: one carton of pineapple orange juice to half a bottle of grenadine. They left out the fruit but I think floating frozen pineapple slices would have been fun. I also think rum or champagne could be added for even more fun!

The hummus might be the easiest to share with y’all. Trader Joe’s basic Garlic Hummus. It was so good with pretzels & B’s slightly overdone baked pitas. :)

I quizzed Ashley for her toffee fruit dip recipe while the shower was going around us. I found a hidden recipe file Monday & realized I’d already saved this dip for future use. So that I {& y’all} will really remember it, here’s my noted recipe.

Ingredients
1/4 c sugar
1/4 c brown sugar
8 oz cream cheese
1/2 bag toffee chips

Directions
Mix together. The recipe {& Ashley} said you can add vanilla as well {maybe 1/2 tsp}. Depending on your taste, you can add more or less sugar. My recipe says serve with apples, but at the shower it worked well with strawberries too.

    Um. I feel like I need that dip. Now. Or five minutes ago.

  2. You just posted these because you know I’m not going to fit into those Lee Jeans huh? And you thought – well hey, since they’re not going to slide over her ass anyway…

    Oh wait. No, that was me looking at these. :p

      Oh you are fine!

      Hummus is healthy! Punch is mostly juice & that’s good for you. & fruit, hello that’s good for you too {ignore the cream cheese in the dip}. :P
