Delicious Garden Herb Dip Recipe

May 6, 2016 | by Annie | appetizers

I love cooking with fresh herbs and trying out different combinations. One of my favorite herb combos is oregano/basil/thyme. Other favorite combos are parsley/basil/chives, parsley/basil/dill, and thyme/cilantro/sweet marjoram. The possibilities are endless and this Garden Herb Dip is extremely versatile! So experiment with herbs until you find your favorite combination. Serve this dip with fresh vegetables or pita chips. I’ve even used it to stuff cherry tomatoes for a fancy appetizer.

Russian Eggs Recipe

| by Marilyn | appetizers

Russian eggs are served with caviar on top. My mother-in-law always started her Christmas Eve party with everyone having a Russian egg in one hand, a shot of chilled vodka in the other and then a toast would be made. The intense flavor of the horseradish and the salty taste of the caviar deliver a surprising flavor. The shot of vodka is just an added bonus. A great way to get a party started! This recipe was adapted from Allrecipes. Be sure to allow yourself enough time for the hard boiled eggs to cool before making Russian Eggs.
