What Smells Better than Simmering Apples?

What Smells Better than Simmering Apples? Simmering strawberries might smell a little better than simmering apples. But they’re both scents from Heaven. Maple syrup doesn’t really float my boat…or my French toast, which is why I drizzle fruity sweetness on my pancakes or French toast. And this past weekend I didn’t only make one fruit sauce. I made two. Apples in cinnamon sauce and blended strawberries made for a fruity...

Citrus Fruit Dip for Front Range Foodies

Citrus Fruit Dip for Front Range Foodies Every month I meet up with other Colorado food lovers who are members of The Front Range Food Bloggers. The hostesses with the mostesses, Barb at Vino Luci Style (the same generous gal who is offering the Diptock giveaway) and Andrea at Fork Fingers Chopsticks, lead the conversation for the meeting whether it be photography, SEO, writing, or, of course, food. As you can imagine, there’s usually a...

Caramel Sauce Drama

Caramel Sauce Drama Happy Thanksgiving! To celebrate the holiday I made my first pie–a banana cream pie with homemade whipped cream and a caramel drizzle. Forget that it took close to four hours to make (when you factor in research, shopping, and cooking/baking); making your own pie comes with rewards. Who knew Thanksgiving could be so much fun? I was inspired to make the pie, because I signed up to participate in Big...

Three Holiday Pumpkin Dip Recipes

Three Holiday Pumpkin Dip Recipes I know. Three! I’ve always liked the holidays for the food. Now that I’m slightly obsessed with dips, I adore the holidays. And it’s all because of the pumpkin dips. A couple weeks back, I made a sweet pumpkin dip for Dipstock and so did three other Dipstock participants. Below you’ll find all three of the recipes. I hope you get to enjoy delicious pumpkin dip this holiday season,...

Here at the Saucy Dipper household we have successfully started Dipstock with a bang — a white chocolate bang.

Autumn-Themed Dips and Sauces

Autumn-Themed Dips and Sauces With autumn well underway and the holidays at our doorstep, it’s only natural that you’d want to make pumpkin, squash, and other harvest-y dips and sauces. I know I do and so do many other food bloggers that I follow on FoodBuzz and Twitter. A few fall-inspired sauce and dip recipes have really stood out to me on the social networks, so I thought a roundup post could be helpful, especially...

Raspberry Sauce Surprisingly Tart and Other Fun Facts

Raspberry Sauce Surprisingly Tart and Other Fun Facts Did you know raspberries improve brain function? Did you know that the average-sized raspberry could have 50 seeds? Raspberries are considered a super food. You know, one of those foods that’s so packed full of antioxidants and other goodness that you’re silly not to eat it often. I try to keep a bag of frozen berries in the fridge at all times. Frozen berries are an easy way to add color...

Name that Chocolate Sauce

Name that Chocolate Sauce Today, we have a special (and sweet) treat from Jennifer over at My Morning Chocolate. After visiting her blog for the first time I quickly fell for her writing style and sweet tooth musings. I have a feeling you’ll do the same. When Jennifer and I agreed to trade posts I thought it was only logical to ask her to write about chocolate. I mean, it is in the name of her blog, and I friggin’ love...

Why Do You Dissapoint Me, Oh Sweet Dessert Dips?

Why Do You Dissapoint Me, Oh Sweet Dessert Dips? In my last post I talked about a couple of the Iowa-themed dips that I made with my family last week. You see, I grew up in Iowa, but now call Denver home. During a quick trip in Iowa I subjected my family to my dippy ways.  Anyway…that’s not the point. The point is that we made a couple of successful cheesy Mexican dips and one not-so-successful yogurt dip, as you’ll see here....
