Zesty Two-Ingredient Cream Cheese Dip

Harry & David Onion and Pepper Relish Dip Recipe | browneyedbaker.com

When I shared the beer and brown sugar kielbasa and sauerkraut recipe, I mentioned that I originally ate it at a fourth of July picnic. A good friend of my husband’s has a picnic every year, and I swear I walk away every year with a new killer recipe. This dip in particular isn’t fancy or difficult (heck, it only involves two ingredients!), but when a bowl of this hit the table very late into the night one year, I couldn’t stop devouring it. When I asked for the recipe, my husband’s friend said it was just cream cheese and onion and pepper relish. That’s it. I’ve taken this to countless get togethers and, without fail, people become totally addicted to it and want the recipe.

Chicken Spread

A vintage recipe for Chicken Spread/Dip using Underwood chicken. | browneyedbaker.com

[This post was resurrected from deep in the archives; it originally appeared in August 2007.]

From the time I was in sixth grade until I graduated from high school, my parents threw big New Year’s Eve parties. They weren’t anything fancy, but they had all of their friends over, some family, and of course everyone’s kids. It was a fun tradition, and as we got older, my sister and I would invite our own friends. I have so, so many food-related memories of those New Year’s Eve parties… from my mom’s friend who always brought shrimp cocktail, to another that brought veggie pizza every year, my mom’s barbecued beans, and this chicken spread. It only takes five minutes to make and can be made ahead of time, which makes it perfect for parties.
