Tomato Feta Dip
Versatile and delicious- your new favorite!
In honor of Mother’s Day, I wanted to share a recipe, and a story, that makes me think of my mom.
Something you may not know about Theresa is that back in the day, she was a BIG fan of treating herself to a McDonald’s fountain Diet Coke (if you know, you know) fries, and every once in a while a hot apple pie. In her words "what's the point of working out - if you can't treat yourself once in a while!" I completely agree.
Last year, I was trying to use up the 20+ apples I had in my refrigerator and landed on a baking recipe with “easy” in the title. As promised, the recipe was easy and, immediately, the first bite took me back to opening that little red box and sharing a hot apple pie with my mom.
Inspired by the Easy-As-Pie Apple Cake Recipe, I decreased the amount of sugar, swapped white sugar for brown, added golden raisins, and was more generous with the cinnamon and nutmeg. If you don’t have nutmeg on hand, I beg you to go get some for this recipe – it’s the key ingredient.
I hope you enjoy it as much as we do!
