Buffalo Chicken Dip


Last Saturday our brother Andrew had friends over to watch the much anticipated UFC 167 main event between Georges St-Pierre and Johhny Hendricks. Having dinner plans at Ikko Sushi beforehand left me short on time so I threw together this quick and easy Frank's RedHot Buffalo Chicken Dip. Served with Stacy's Pita Chips or carrots and celery this dip will always provide knockout results... an empty bowl :)

GNG Tip: I use one cup of rotisserie chicken instead of canned. Also, if you are making this for friends I suggest using ranch dressing and cheddar cheese instead of blue cheese dressing because not everyone is a fan of blue cheese. Incomprehensible I know!

Crock-Pot Tikka Masala


I love Indian food! My mom and I got on a real kick of trying out recipes while we were together for Christmas and spent many late nights watching Gordon Ramsay's Great Escape. Although I wasn't a real fan of his hot head approach on Hell's Kitchen I fell in love with him after watching the first episode of his travels in India. If you are passionate about authentic foods and travel you'll want to check out his show. This Crock-Pot Tikka Masala recipe from Meal Planning 101was the first Indian dish I ever made. Although Scott prefers Thai curries, he loved this recipe.
