Rules of the Kitchen

If I am anything, it is a rule follower. When I was younger my parents once brought snacks into the movie theater and I worried the entire time we would get kicked out for breaking the rules.

I used to apply my strict rule following to cooking by not varying off of a written recipe…..at all! I had my handful of dishes that I knew by heart and could make with my eyes closed but give me something new and I craved guidelines. Luckily I married a man who is a little more flexible with following the “rules” when it comes to cooking (or driving the speed limit). Cooking together over the past 5 years has allowed us to learn from the other and I am now more comfortable in using a recipe as a starting point and adding my own twist.

This recipe started off as an idea I saw on Pinterest (that is an entirely other post) because my wonderful sister-in-law had just made us heaps of homemade jams and butters. I hope you are inspired as well and break a few rules in the process.

Perfect dip for a cold afternoon watching football or addition to your holiday party.
