Hot Swiss Dip

You say the word dip and you have my attention. You say dip that has cheese in it then you know I will be hovering over the bowl.

Hot Swiss Dip

I don’t know which to start off with first – that I have a new dip obsession or maybe a new book obessesion. Okay I need to pace myself – first college football kickoff happened last night, and my Auburn Tigers play tomorrow afternoon. But I can tell you the one thing that will make an appearance while watching the game is this dip.

Now remember this dip comes with a warning – you may not watch as much of the game because you are licking the bowl…I mean I keep it real over here – I might have done this already. I blame pregnancy.

Now about my book obsession…Domestic Chic: A Fashionably Fabulous Guide to Cooking & Entertaining by the Seasons

Who wouldn’t want a book that is not only written by a certified nutritionist (so you know she gives you tips to make some of these dishes a little healthier), but also includes some killer menus?!

Inside you’ll find:

  • Ideas for creating a wonderful themed party
  • Instead of the typical layout of cookbook sections – appetizers, entrees, desserts, etc. the chapters are broken down by the seasons
  • Furthermore each season has about 5 menus for holidays and other celebrations (ya that’s right 20+ preplanned menus)

My favorite has to be her Football Mania menu. She has recipes for Mixed Stuffed Peppers, Nonna Dina’s Sauce, this Hot Swiss Dip, Portobello Burgers, Cha Cha Chili, and White Chocolate Chip Macadamia Nut Cookies. I mean who wouldn’t want to have the stress taken away from menu planning – me that’s who.

Some meals from her Harvesting (fall) season include French Onion Soup, Braised Beef Short Ribs, Pumpkin Bread, and Sweet Potato Pie.

Need one more reason to want your own copy of this book? She includes produce guides for each season to make sure you are serving some of the freshest ingredients. From the detailed menus, decor tips, and all around love Kristin shows you this book is one you need in your kitchen.

What a wonderful book! Summer entertaining is when we have fun outside by the pool and have easy, fun food and desserts. This is a dip I've got to try for the next party!
