Today on the Saucy Dipper I’m talking to Ivy Manning, a freelance food and travel writer, food stylist, and author of four cookbooks including Crackers & Dips. Ivy’s cookbook violently jumped out at me while browsing Amazon, which is exactly why I sought her out to ask a few questions. I feel like she wrote this book… Continue reading Author of ‘Crackers & Dips’ Says ‘No’ to Gloppy Calorie Bomb Dips
It’s tough for me to say what my “favorites” are in life. For instance, I can’t tell you about my favorite book or movie because I’m not really sure which ONE I like best. That feels like too much pressure to pick just one. Same with picking a favorite color, music genre, or time of… Continue reading Crab Rangoon Dip with Wonton Dippers
Sweet potato fries are no joke, at least not in my book. They’re the perfect combination of sweet and salty. They’re good fried, but I actually like mine better baked.

A friend may have snuck them on a plate at a dinner party without me noticing. But a few months back while on Twitter I met someone. I met @DiscoverEndive. Actually,… Continue reading Tortilla Chip Alternative. Putting the Endive to the Test.

I can’t take credit for any of the following recipes, but I can attest to their awesomeness. First up, baked spinach dip mini bread bowls from the Picky Palate. If you’re… Continue reading Three Creative Dips You Don’t Actually Dip
It’s 4pm and I’m standing in the Whole Foods snack aisle. It must be 95 degrees outside. I didn’t take a nap. Have I mentioned I’m pregnant? Well, I’m tired, hot, hungry, PREGNANT, and irritated by the fact that I can never find the pita chips I’m looking for when I’m at the store. Are… Continue reading Even the Wrong Dippers Make this Cherry Salsa Taste Right
It’s August, which is also known as the Saucy Dipper’s “Month O’ Fruit Salsas.” I already told you about a mango-cucumber salsa and today you get lots o’ strawberry-yellow pepper salsa goodness. Now, I’m not one to brag, especially since the following recipe isn’t really mine. I found inspiration on the Whole Foods website. However, I… Continue reading Strawberry and Yellow Pepper Fruit Salsa
It’s the last day of Dipstock, and I can’t think of a better way to end the party than with a guacamole, one of THE quintessential dips.

Imagine a dip without any chip. The thought is enough to make my tears drip. Imagine a time when a salt craving made you whine. The memory makes me glad to dine on Tostitos, dip, and (the right kind of) wine!
