Blue Cheese Dressing

Homemade, chunky Blue Cheese Dressing.

The Best Blue Cheese Dressing

I have been a fan of Blue Cheese Dressing my entire life so, believe me when I say this recipe is amazing. It just doesn’t come this good in a bottle and many online recipes just can’t be trusted. Some bloggers get you in the vicinity of a decent dressing but there always seems to be something missing. Am I right? Well, not here, no sir/mam. I’ve got the best recipe right here and it’s great on salads, used as a dip with veggies or chicken wings.

Crumbled Blue Cheese.

Smooth or Chunky Blue Cheese Dressing

These days you can buy blue cheese already crumbled and ready to go. If you’re buying it by the brick, however, you’ll have to break it down and crumble it with your hands or slice it with a knife. If you’re going for a chunky recipe, just eye ball the pieces and prep them to your preference and size. If you prefer a creamy dressing, just break down the blue cheese to a size your blender or hand mixer can handle because that’s the only way you’re going to get a creamy Blue Cheese Dressing with out mixing for hours by hand.

Dinner Salad with Blue Cheese Dressing.

Blue Cheese Dressing or Dip

Last week I filmed my version of Buffalo Chicken Wings and I paired that recipe with this Blue Cheese Dressing. The two recipes together are sensational. So good in fact that I bought more wings and ingredients to make the dressing again, yesterday. I used every last bit, of the dressing I filmed, on salads I ate for lunch, all week long. So I highly recommend both of these recipes.

Blue Cheese Dressing Ingredients:

6 – 8 oz Blue Cheese
1 cup Butter Milk
1 cup Sour Cream
1 cup Mayonaise
1/3 cup White Wine Vinegar
1/2 tsp Garlic Powder
1/2 tsp Onion Powder
1 tsp Sugar, maybe more
Salt and Pepper to taste

Just mix all of the ingredients together, to make your Blue Cheese Dressing, and be sure to watch the video tutorial.

National Potato Chips and National Chips and Dip Day

PMGK’s Clap Dip

The History of Potato Chips

National Potato Chips Day is celebrated each year on March 14th. There is a fun story behind the invention of the Potato Chip and even an exact date that it was created. The first Potato Chip was made on August 24, 1853. Native American Chef, George Crum created the Potato chip in his restaurant the Moon Lake Lodge in Saratoga Springs, New York. An angry customer sent back his french fries say thing were too thick and soggy. In annoyance with the customer Chef Crum sliced them paper thin, over salted them and deep fried them to a crisp. When it was served to the customer he loved it. Others started asking for it as well. For many years it was know as the Saratoga Chip and now is Americas #1 snack food.

Our Families Favorite

Chips and Sour Cream

One of our family favorites is Cheddar and Sour Cream Chips dipped in sour cream. PMGK introduced us to dipping them in plain sour cream and the kids instantly fell in love. My five year old opened the fridge today looking for a snack and said, “Why do we have sour cream and no chips”! I have to be better at keeping us stocked up on these because no one is happy when they go for them and we are out.

Holiday Cheese Ball

Chips and Dip

While we’re talking about Potato Chips I’d like to mention that March 23 is National Chips and Dip Day. PMGK made me the best cheese ball dip over the holidays. I have been asking him to film this for a while. It is so good. I love to buy these for Christmas and New Years but I knew my husband could make them better and I was right. Maybe you can persuade him to film it for us all by heading on over to our Patreon and making a request. He has however, filmed many of my favorite dip recipes already. They are: Clam Dip, Jalapeno Popper Dip, Spinach and Artichoke Dip, Chili Con Queso and Broccoli and Cheese Dip with Marinated Artichoke Hearts.

Give me a fountain drink and a bag of Salt and Vinegar Chips and I am one happy lady.

Flavored Chips

Salt and Vinegar chips were the first chip flavor to be created. They are my absolute favorite and have been since I was about 12 years old. I used to walk to the corner market and pick up a bag and a fountain drink and come home and sometimes eat the whole bag in one sitting. I loved them that much. I don’t know any one who doesn’t like chips. Even my healthy friends buy their vegan bags of chips from the health food store. Maybe now that we’ve shared with you some of our favorites you’re ready to go out and grab yourself a snack.
