Caramel Dip by: McKay Peisley

I tried this dip at a friend's party and it was to die for! Her daughter made it and passed on the recipe to me, thanks McKay! I will copy the recipe exactly the way she gave it to me :)

1/4 cup sugar
3/4 cup brown sugar
whole thing cream cheese stick
1 tsp. vanilla

Cover and put in fridge for 30 minutes.
Dip fruit in there.

Don't be scared, it's not as weird as you think it is. I love hummus! So good and super healthy too!

2 cans garbanzo beans a.k.a chick peas drain and rinse one can and not the other
1/2 bulb of garlic (about 5 cloves)
1/4 c plain Greek yogurt (regular also works great)
1/4 cup olive oil
salt and pepper to taste

Blend beans, garlic, and yogurt in a food processor or blender until smooth and drizzle in the olive oil, add your salt and pepper (use about 1 Tbs. salt). Enjoy with pita chips or tortilla chips, even raw veggies are great!

*To add variety you can add things like roasted red peppers, feta cheese, and sun dried tomatoes to change up the flavors a bit. For ideas just stake a stroll around the special cheese case where they sell the hummus and you'll see a bunch of different kinds.

Dutch Oven Chicken

We just got back from a great camping trip and this is what we had for dinner one night. Soooo good! If you want to make this at home just throw everything in your dutch oven or a covered casserole dish and bake at 350 for an hour or until chicken is tender and cooked though.

4 chicken breasts
1 bottle of French salad dressing
1 envelope of onion soup mix
salt and pepper to taste

Throw everything in together and cook over hot coals for an hour. Make sure to put coals on top (12 of them if possible) to keep it hot enough.
