Reese’s Peanut Butter Cup Dip

So, it seems like One Direction is the hot topic of the week! In case you’ve been living under a rock the past few days (or aren’t a fan of pop culture), Zayn, one of five guys comprising the pop group, has left the band. And everyone is talking about it! Every Buzzfeed article is mentioning it, Facebook is blowing up, and some girl started a GoFundMe to buy out One Direction’s contract, which has already raised 87.8 million dollars! (Seriously.) I played some One Direction in my dance classes this week as a good-faith gesture, and my students were almost in tears. It’s apparently that bad! I tried to compare it to when Kevin temporarily left the Backstreet Boys, but let’s face it: I don’t think Kevin was anyone’s favorite BSB member. So, the world is down one One Directioner…is this the new “day the music died?”

If it is, I’ve got a cure: this creamy, heavenly combination of chocolate and peanut butter, which, in my opinion, is better than a boy band any day! I love to serve this dip when I have company over, and I’ve made it for work a few times too. It’s always a huge hit! It’s very rich, so a little goes a long way.

Fashion + Food: Super Bowl Edition

Happy Friday, friends! I hope you had a great week! I am so excited to share today’s post with you. Today is the first of *hopefully* many collaboration posts with my sister, Kaylee. Kaylee is the creator of Pleats and Pearls, a Midwest fashion blog. She and I have been talking about collaborating for awhile now, so we thought we’d start big, with football’s biggest day of the year!

Now, I think I dress pretty well, but Kaylee has me beat in every single way. Mostly because she doesn’t wear yoga pants to work every day like I do, but also, she’s really got an eye for fashion. Here’s a sneak peek of what she’s whipped up for the Super Bowl…

I’ve been told many times that I’m the “Monica” of my friend group. Not only do I love to cook, but I also love to be the hostess. (But I don’t get as crazy as Monica does…I promise!) I think it’s fun (or nerdy?) to have a food “theme” for parties, so for the Super Bowl, I chose dips. There’s nothing quite as satisfying as a good dip. Today, I’m sharing three dips that are sure to please all your party guests. Hot, cold, or dessert, I’ve got you covered! The first dip requires a bit of prep, but the other two can be thrown together in 5 minutes a piece. So sit back and relax…your Super Bowl party is sure to be a hit with these recipes.
