Friday Foodday

Happy Friday lovebugs! I hope you have a wonderful weekend! Here are my favorite recipes this week.

Limoncello Gin Cocktail
1 ounce Limoncello
1 ounce gin
4 ounces club soda
Lots of ice
Lemon peel, for garnish

Fill a tall glass with ice and add the Limoncello and gin. Top with the club soda and stir. Garnish and Enjoy.

Skinny Poolside Dip
8 ounces cream cheese, room temperature
1 red bell pepper, finely diced
1 jalapeno, seeded, finely diced (double it up or leave in seeds if you want more spice)
1 small can black olives, finely diced
15 ounce can corn, drained
1 packet ranch seasoning
Dump everything into a bowl and start stirring it together. As the vegetables start to release a little of their water, the mixture will come together much easier. Continue stirring until well combined.
Serve immediately or store in the fridge, covered, for up to 24 hours. The longer the dip sets, the more water the vegetables will release.
Serve with crackers or chips.

Spicy Chipotle Ketchup
  • 6 oz can tomato paste
  • 1/4 cup honey
  • 1/2 cup white vinegar
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 1 tbsp chipotle paste (or more to taste)
  • 3/4 tsp salt
  • 1/4 tsp onion powder
  • 1/8 tsp garlic powder

Combine all the ingredients in a medium saucepan over medium heat; whisk until smooth. When it comes to a boil, reduce heat to low and simmer for 20 minutes, stirring often. Remove from heat and cover until cool. Chill and store refrigerated in a covered container.
