Foodie Creations

It’s summertime, and we all enjoy picnics and other get togethers this time of year.  We have a selection of dip mixes from Country Home Creations including this great tasting, always popular Caramelized Onion & Garlic Mix.

Caramelized Onion and Garlic

Each package, with various recipes, uses simple, often on-hand  ingredients to make delicious additions to your meal, appetizer or snack.  Jalepeno Pepper Dip Mix is a good example with recipes for Jalepeno Corn Bread, Jalepeno Corn Dip and Jalepeno Chip Dip and Taco Topper. “Feeling Hot, Hot, Hot?” Your taste buds will go crazy if you crave “hot stuff.” This dip is great on tortilla chips, crackers and vegetables. This product contains No MSG, No Added Sugar, No Wheat or Gluten.

You can even alter the recipe a bit to suit what you need.  With the Almond Poppy Seed Dip Mix, we used vanilla flavored Greek yogurt instead of sour cream and blended with soften cream cheese and the mix.  This makes a great topping to use with fresh summertime fruit.  Yummy!

Ready for the Big Bang

Most of us are getting ready for a really big July Fourth weekend celebration — get-togethers with friends and family, community celebrations, fireworks and of course . . . picnics and lots of food!  If you need a quick dip, we have some great mixes.  We have the ever popular veggie, dill and jalepeno dips . . . garlic spread mix, lemon blueberry mix, fiesta nacho cheese mix, salsa mix (two kinds) and so many more.  What’s great about these mixes — all the dry ingredients are in the package — all you need to add is mayo, cream cheese, sour cream or other on-hand ingredients.  Easy!  And you can even use the low fat varieties if you want.  AND Country Creations no bake chocolate or lemon cheesecake is yummy beyond belief!

Many of our mixes have additional recipes that turn a simple dish into a gourmet delight.  Stop by this weekend to sample Bacon Cheese and Onion dip (just add mayo and sour cream) and sweet Chocolate Covered Cherry Dip.  If you like it and buy a mix we are sampling, we will take $1.00 off the price.  If you missed the last post, we are participating in the Mall’s Sidewalk Sales this weekend.  Stop by thru Monday and check it all out!

Have a happy and safe July 4th!

Or this yummy milk chocolate soap, scrub, body butter and lotion?

and vintage labeled Hershey cocoa and syrup  scented soy candles . . .

and we can’t leave out Kisses, York Peppermint Patty, Reeses Peanut Butter Cup and Milk Chocolate candles!

 Chocolate Amaretto and Chocolate Butterscotch cocoas and coffees flavored like Chocolate Lava Cake and Chocolate Truffle!
