A Sweet Start

Whew! It was a long day today at school. I usually leave my house at 6:30 and tonight we had an event at school, so I didn't get home until around 8:30! That is a 14 hour day! I'm exhausted.

But...I wanted to share a few recipes with you since you asked. I will try to share more later. :)

Here are two of the dips I make for appetizers at Thanksgiving. We always start the fun with these and my family loves them. Plus they are really easy.

Pepper Jelly Spread

(You can't get any easier than this one!)

Take a block of cream cheese and pour green pepper jelly over it. Serve with Wheat Thins and other fancy crackers.

Haha...that is it!!

Heath Bar Dip

8 oz. cream cheese, softened
1/4 c. sugar
3/4 c. brown sugar
1 tsp. vanilla
mini Heath bars, crushed (about 10)

Pour granulated sugar over softened cream cheese andn let sit for about 30 minutes. Add the brown sugar and vanilla. Mix until well blended. Stir in Heath bar pieces. Serve with sliced apples.

I know I love getting new recipes and ideas...especially easy ones. Hopefully these will help you out if you're looking for something good for Thanksgiving appetizers. I also have a really good dip recipe that I just tried about two weeks ago and I will share it with you before Thanksgiving!

Hope you are having a great week!
