{Recipe} Gone in 60 seconds Dip

Tonight is our home group Christmas party … ugly sweater style!  I’ll *hopefully* remember to take some pics to post.

I am making Gone in 60 seconds Dip (recipe courtesy of my friend Shauna).  It is SO good.  I could eat the entire thing all by myself and not be sorry.

My pants might not fit the next day.

But who cares?

It is so good.

I think it could also be called: “Do they lace this with crack?” Dip.

Without further ado…


1 cup shredded cheddar cheese

1 cup chopped pecans

½ cup chopped green onions

¼ cup mayo

1 jar of red hot pepper jelly (found in peanut butter/jelly area of stores)

Serve with Wheat thins or Club crackers (I personally like wheat thins better than club)


Mix first 4 ingredients and spread out in a nice dish and refrigerate for 45 to 60 minutes.  Before serving, pour hot pepper jelly over the mixture and spread out evenly. Serve with the crackers.

Easy peasy. You gotta try it!!

Now … some eye candy for you::

Until next time.  Much love.

Its beginning to look a lot like Christmas … and I haven’t sent my cards out yet!

If you are like me …

(and i hope for your sake you are much more on the ball!)

…December has snuck up a little quicker than usual this year!

Here I am.  December 7th.  Eighteen days left until Christmas.  18!  I have done nothing about Christmas cards yet.  2010 has been a rough year for card sending in the Stone household.

When Hudson was born I was too caught up in enjoying our new little cutie (and trying to figure out how to breastfeed him. and changing his diapers. and then feeding him some more. and then quick! taking a nap for the moments that he was asleep) I decided we would just send birth announcements with our Christmas cards.  Besides.  That would save lots of postage.  Because if you haven’t noticed – stamps cost an arm & a leg! “Here are my appendages mr. postman. may i please have a book of stamps?” Just a book.  I’d have to give him Hudson to buy a whole ROLL of stamps!

Anyhow. Now I have a 3 – almost 4 – month old & I have done nada on the Christmas card front.

Then today…I found this great deal from this great company!

Now you can afford the stamps for your super cute cards!
