Buffalo Chicken Dip Recipe

I will forever be indebted to my beautiful girlfriend Lindsay for introducing me to “Buffalo Chicken Dip” at her BBQ this summer!

I was already OBSESSED with boneless buffalo wings before this magical summer day but after that I had a new way and another reason to eat one of my favorites!!

Buffalo Chicken Dip with Blue Cheese

As I planned my “Gameday Grub” menu I knew I had to include this dip because what goes better with football than wings?  Ok, maybe beer, but we’re talking food here, so I’m sticking with wings!

This recipe is a great way to get the yummy wing-ness without all the mess!

Buffalo Chicken Dip Ingredients

Ingredients (serves 6)

  • 3 cups cooked and shredded chicken breasts
  • 1 cup buffalo sauce
  • 16 oz cream cheese
  • 1/4 cup bleu cheese dressing
  • 2 cups cheddar cheese (grated)
  • 1/4 cup bleu cheese (crumbled)

Begin preparing the dip by combining the shredded chicken and buffalo sauce in a medium bowl.

Next, pre-heat the oven to 350°F.

In a small-to-medium size casserole dish combine and spread the cream cheese and bleu cheese dressing in the bottom.

I served mine with a sliced baguette, as well as veggies for a healthier option.

There were also chips and slider buns hanging around that people could use to make this into a true chip-and-dip situation or little buffalo chicken sliders.

Gameday Grub

Saturday I had the great honor of hosting more than 20 Oklahoma peeps at my house in LA for the OU vs Florida State game!!!  In case you live under a rock (or aren’t a football fan) OU was victorious 23-13 and celebration was not lacking at my house!

Beverages were spilled, cheerleading uniforms were worn, country music was played and best of all… food was eaten!  Now there are upsides and downsides of being a food blogger!

Upsides: people come to me for recipe ideas (I love giving advice!) and I get to come up with new recipes to put on the blog.

Downsides: I put a lot of pressure on myself to come up with an amazing menu for every event or dinner and I must execute it to perfection!

On Thursday I began my search for the perfect menu for Saturday. Trying to feed that many hungry Sooner fans with delicious, amazing food that can be prepared before game time… a little tricky!

My food is important, but there was no way I was missing one minute of this game!  So here it is, the perfect “Gameday Grub” menu:

Crockpot Taco Soup in yellow crock with gold spoon, topped with cheddar cheese and fresh cilantro

Buffalo dip, chicken dip, blue cheese, cream cheese, buffalo chicken, recipe, appetizer

  • Pumpkin Cupcakes

pumpkin cupcakes, game day cupcakes, cream cheese frosting, football cupcakes, game day dessert, recipes, food

sloppy joes, gourmet sloppy joes, homemade sloppy joes, sloppy joe sliders, crispy onion sloppy joes, crockpot sloppy joes, slow cooker sloppy joes, gameday grub, recipes, food

Somehow I made all of this happen, while taking pictures along the way and was on the couch, beverage in hand, ready for the game at kick-off!

I hope this post helped you get some great ideas for your “Gameday Grub”!!!

The Spaghetti Sauce Incident of 2011

Sometimes you have to embarrass yourself for the happiness of others. In this case, Me: embarrassed, You: happy.

A week ago today I was hustling and bustling around town to get about 1 million errands done in which I had time for app. 1/2 of 1 of them. Luckily Target now has the added convenience of their nice new “Market Pantry” grocery department.

Yes, I realize in Oklahoma, Texas, pretty much everywhere with land you have “Super Targets” but those of us living in the concrete jungle spend 45 minutes driving 3 miles to Target, then pay $2 to park in a structure and are excited about the fact that there is now a small grocery section!!! Yes, I am jealous of you all and your “Super Targets” if you had not already picked up on that 😉 Needless to say the added grocery element that day knocked out my stop at both Target and a Grocery Store so I was happy about that.

As I arrived I knew I only had about 15 minutes to get in and out so I did the old “I don’t have enough time to buy enough stuff to fit in a cart so I should get a basket to encourage myself to quit shopping when the basket is full” trick.  Don’t look at me like that, I know you have all done it, but it never works out that way.

You then end up being the person that has to ask for a cart because your basket is now over-flowing, or you are this person, me, the person that continues to carry my over-flowing basket filled with a gallon of milk, 1/2 gallon of OJ and pretty much the heaviest items I could possibly find in the grocery section.

Now that I have realized my small, yet mighty arms can’t bare to hold the basket anymore I know that it is time to head for the check-out stands. I grab my last item, a jar of red pepper flakes, just in case you were curious, pick up my 75 lb basket and head from the very back of the store (this is relevant, I promise) towards the check our lanes.  One step in and spaghetti sauce flys out of the basket, hits the shelves, lid flys off, spaghetti sauce all over the floor and wait for it, wait for it, I’m not going to slip and fall, I’m not going to slip and fall, yes actually I am going to slip and fall face down in the spaghetti sauce in the middle of target. Let me paint a little picture for you.

Target employees, customers, hungry animals come running and here I lay thinking “well that’s going to leave a bruise”… and it did.

But don’t you worry, the Target employee’s first priority was to replace that jar of sauce (because that was definitely what I was worried about at the moment). The culprit:

They then proceeded to walk me through the entire store (I told you the fact that I was in the very back of the store was relevant), one Target employee pushing a cart with my basket of grocery’s inside and myself dripping in spaghetti sauce, praying not to slip again on my way to the bathroom.

We proceeded to the front of the store where I then washed myself in the Target bathroom sinks, but of course being eco-friendly Targét there were only hand dryers in the bathroom, no paper towels, so I now had to make my way to the in-store Pizza Hut sopping wet to ask for napkins. If only I had listened to the Target ad…

Yes, this was literally the ad from this Sunday.
