This isn’t his first time writing for the Saucy Dipper, but it is one of the best things he’s made yet. *** Here’s a nice little beer cheese bread recipe I stole from Alton Brown of Good Eats (see the original recipe). Here’s how I made it, some… Continue reading Beer Cheese Bread Recipe – For Dipping
I’m not particularly crazy about St. Patrick’s Day. I mean, the party is nice, but the food…well, the food is nothing special. At least that’s what I thought until I discovered corned beef. Oh, corned beef. You delicious, salty meat, you. Where have you been all my life? After browsing around the web and finding… Continue reading A St. Paddy’s Day Feast: Corned Beef Dip and Soup

You know you’ll be drinking great beer,… Continue reading Beer Me, Colorado. I’m Hungry for Dip.

I recently visited family in Iowa and forced them to endure my Saucy Dippiness. I don’t think they minded, though. At least I saw them take seconds and willingly take leftovers home, which leads me to believe they enjoyed themselves. But then again, my mom and nephew did a lot of the cooking, so they… Continue reading A Fine Place to Dip. Iowa, You Rock.
Nope, not my Uncle Phil. This one belongs to my good friend and fellow Dipstock attendee, Katie. Phil and Katie reign from the foodie nation of Wisconsin…turns out those folks know good cheese, good brats, and good saucy bacon appetizers. Katie made Uncle Phil’s bacon wrapped water chestnut recipe for last week’s event. It was… Continue reading Uncle Phil’s Saucy Bacon Appetizer
Sure, you think of sauces and dips and you think of a marinara sauce and a seven-layer dip, but that’s not what it has to mean all the time.
