Here’s a little some some I make for parties, demonstrations and the like.  I use to make it just for the kids when they were little because they loved it, and it was good for them too (but I didn’t tell them that).

I take a package of Philadelphia Cream Cheese (softened), and I squished that in a bowl.  Then I took one of those very small cans of V8 juice and poured that in, and then a package of Seven Seas Italian seasonings in a packet, and poured that in there, and mix until it’s nice and smooth.  You put it in a bowl put in the middle of a big plate surrounding it with fresh veggies such as celery, carrots, broccoli, and cauliflower, and with the fresh veggies we’re talking no calories to speak of ladies.  I promise you it’ll be like Jays Potato Chips you won’t be able to stop eating it!   Very tasty indeed, and what do I always say at the end of my recipes????  ALL TOGETHER…. NUMMMMMMMERSSSSS!

So now all you have to do is sign our linky to lead us and/or our guests to you to swap a recipe.  Check them all out, and we’ll check yours.  If you don’t want to write it all down & know of one on line just post a link to it on your blog or leave it in a comment if you prefer!  Enjoy and Bona Petite!!!  Thanks for cooking/sharing along with us!

    I would never think to add V-8 in a dip, but I bet that gives a great flavor. MMMMMMM
    I love veggies and dip, I could eat them all day. I wont tell your kids you gave them something that was good for them, promise!


    Ooh I love V8 – how smart!! This sounds so good 🙂


    Never heard of adding V-8 to a dip, sounds interesting. I’ll have to try it!

    Here’s my recipe

    I keep forgetting to join in…I’ve gotten spoiled (or lazy) not posting anything on Thursday…today was a full day with doc and dentist w/ Princess Nagger. 🙂

    I didn’t think of V8! Genius! 🙂


    Probably not the best idea to read all these food related posts when I’m hungry O.o

    That sounds like a pretty good dip you whipped up there Dolly!

Thanks for the lovely comment!
