Casual Entertaining: Easy Spinach Dip

Easy Spinach Dip and Casual Entertaining Tips at www.happyhourprojects.com

This post is sponsored by Kellogg’s. I have a love/hate relationship with entertaining.  I love seeing friends.  I love opening up our home.  I love connecting, laughing, reminiscing, and catching up.  But I am a little bit hopeless at party decor, and I don’t love spending hours in the kitchen getting ready.  Really, I’m just […]

New Orleans Inspired Muffuletta Dip at www.happyhourprojects.com

With Mardi Gras wrapping up today, I though a couple of recipes inspired by the flavors of New Orleans would be fun to share!  Once a year, I start getting hungry for the New Orleans classic: the Muffuletta.  It’s a huge sandwich with olive salad, salami, ham and cheeses.  But this year, I put a […]

Last Minute Food Gifts: Hanging Treat Boxes at www.happyhourprojects.com

Well, we’re down to about a week left before Christmas (cue the sobbing in the corner, I am NOT ready at ALL).  Are you making your edible gifts this week?  It’s on my to-do list, but I am definitely scaling back this year.  Much fewer baked goods, and more no-bake, easy treats.  Yesterday  I shared […]

Okay, I love marshmallows.  There, I said it.  I love marshmallow-filled stuff, marshmallow fluff, toasted marshmallows… and this time of year, I love to dip marshmallows!  They are a super easy sweet treat, and they look great on cookie trays and as part of edible gifts.  You can make a whole bag of these easy […]
