Game Day Snacking: Part Two

Avocado Hummus Dip with Crispy Sea Salt Pita Chips
Mini Nacho Pizzas

Roasted Cauliflower and Aged White Cheddar Dip 
Cook's notes: A warm and creamy roasted cauliflower with white cheddar. It is a  dip that is decadently delicious without all of the calories!  The roasting process of the cauliflower just elevates this dip to a whole new level. Recipe serves four and adapted from
Cooking tip: Make the dip the day before ,refrigerate and bake the next day. It will require 10-15 minutes extra baking time since it just came out of the fridge but you will know it is done when the sides are bubbling and the top is lightly golden brown.

  1. I love anything handwritten because it's deeply personal and is so rare these days.

    That cauliflower dip sounds delish. You always feature the most enticing recipes that seem easy to prepare with ordinary ingredients. I appreciate that.
