Recipes: Blake's Way!

One of the many things I love to do is cook, bake and anything that has to do with being in the kitchen (minus dishes!) Since I'm on bed rest I'm restricted from doing any of those :( And being pregnant I get plenty of cravings and have plenty of time to look up recipes. Lately it's been via Pinterest! Can you say obsessed?! So today I decided to send my handsome man to the store to pick up a few things to make 2 different dips that I thought sounded amazing. The first one is the Cheddar Bacon Dip found here and the second is the Jalapeño Popper Dip found here . Blake doesn't like to be bothered while he's in the kitchen so I handed him the recipes and let him go at it! And this is the result...

Cheddar Bacon Dip
16 oz sour cream
1 packet Ranch dressing mix
3 oz bacon bits ( The fresh looking kind. Not the hard bits)
1 cup shredded cheddar cheese

Mix together and refrigerate 24 hours. Serve with what ever you would like. (We used tortilla chips and ate immediately!) Yum!

Jalapeño Popper Dip
 (Not the best quality of pictures but it will have to do)
16 ounces cream cheese
1 cup mayo
8 pieces of bacon, cooked and chopped up (We didn't add bacon)
6 Jalapeños, chopped (We used can 2 small cans instead of fresh because it's what we had)
2 cloves garlic, minced (We used a tbsp of minced garlic from a jar)
½ teaspoon cumin (We hate cumin so we didn't add this)
1½ cups shredded cheddar cheese
1 cup breadcrumbs
1 cup grated Parmesan cheese
4 tablespoons melted butter
- Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
-Mix the cream cheese, mayo, jalapenos, garlic, and cheddar cheese in a bowl. Pour the mixture into a casserole dish or 9×13 baking dish. ( We used a smaller glass dish)
-Combine breadcrumbs, parmesan cheese and melted butter in a small bowl and stir. Sprinkle over the cream cheese mixture.
-Bake for 25 to 30 minutes, until the top is golden brown and the dip is bubbling. Let cool and serve with what ever your heart desires. (We used tortilla chips)

Happy snacking!
