Recipe: Hot Wing Dip

hot wing dip

Do you LOVE chicken wings but hate the mess? This AMAZING dip is perfect for football watching.

Super Awesome Hot Wing Dip

Recipe stolen from Teri Nurre. Teri's daughter, on the right, loves her Little Mama Apron and is one of our biggest fans!

1 whole chicken (I buy a rotisserie chicken, already cooked)
8 oz cream cheese
1/2 to 3/4 bottle Marie's Blue Cheese Dressing (found in refrigerated section)
12 oz bottle Franks Buffalo Wing Hot Sauce
2 cups mozzarella cheese

Put on your favorite Hot Mama Apron.
Spread cream cheese on bottom of greased pan (9x9)
Remove skin from chicken and discard. Remove chicken from bones and shred. Pour hot sauce over chicken and mix well.
Spread chicken/hot sauce mixture over cream cheese
Pour blue cheese dressing over chicken mixture
Top with Mozzarella cheese
Cover and bake at 350 for 30 minutes
Serve with celery stalks and tortilla chips.

*NOTE: do not use substitutes! Only use Marie's and Franks! I made this mistake once and got a not so good hot wing dip!

Recipe: Old Fashoned Caramel Cake

My mom and I are reading the book The Help by Kathryn Stockett. Great read. There is a woman in the book who makes caramel cake; a simple white sheet cake with a caramel glaze on top. My mom remembers eating this cake as a child growing up in East Texas. We have been searching for an old fashioned caramel cake recipe and I finally found one that was published in the Dallas paper a few years ago. I made the cake last night and it is super good. Actually, it WAS super good; it is already gone!

Old Fashoned Caramel Cake
1 package (box) white cake mix
1 cup buttermilk
1/3 cup butter, melted
4 egg whites
1/4 tsp almond extract
Put on your favorite Hot Mama Apron. Beat together first 5 ingredients at low speed. Pour into a 15x10 jelly roll pan. Bake 1t 350 for 15-20 minutes or until a wooden pick inserted in the middle comes out clean. Cool in pan for 2 hours.
Caramel Icing
1/2 cup butter
1 cup light brown sugar
1/3 cup buttermilk
2 cups powdered sugar
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
1/4 tsp almond extract

I hope you haven't taken that adorable apron off; this icing gets messy and you will want to wipe your hands on that towel you conveniently have tied around your waist! By the way, you look so super cute wearing it!
Bring butter and brown sugar to a boil over medium heat, whisking constantly. Remove from heat and slowly whisk in buttermilk. Return mixture to heat, and bring to a boil. Remove from heat, and place in a mixer. Gradually add powdered sugar, vanilla and almond extracts beating at medium to high speed until smooth. Immediately pour over cake and serve.

Recipe: Shrimp Quesadillas and Pico de Gallo

We just got back from Port Aransas, Texas where we bought fresh shrimp, right off the Poly Anna shrimp boat! We took those babies back to the beach house, cleaned them, and made shrimp quesadillas with homemade pico de gallo. Delish!! Check out recipes below.

Shrimp Quesadillas
1 pound fresh shrimp cleaned, and deveined (actually, to be totally honest here, frozen shrimp from the grocery store is easier and tastes the SAME! No offense to the Poly Anna shrinpers)
1/2 stick butter
1 clove garlic
chopped chives
1 cup grated sharp cheddar cheese
1 cup grated monterrey jack cheese
*use more cheese if needed
flour tortillas (fresh are the best, some groceries are now making their own flour tortillas on site. You can also drive through Taco Cabana and order them by the dozen)

Put on your favorite Hot Mama Apron. Saute shrimp in butter, garlic, and chives, and some salt and pepper. Set aside.
Spread mayo(sounds weird but it doesn't burn as fast as butter) on one side of flour tortilla, place tortilla, mayo side down, in hot skillet. Place a few shrimp, and some of both cheeses on top of tortilla, fold in half, and grill until cheese is melted. Serve with fresh pico and a dollop of sour cream.

Pico De gallo
cherry tomatoes cut in half
lots of fresh cilantro
chopped onion
chopped jalepenos (fresh or canned...fresh tend to be really hot)
avocado cut into small pieces
lime juice
Put on you favorite Hot Mama Apron. Combine as little or as much of the above ingredients in a bowl. Squeeze fresh lime juice over mixture and sprinkle with salt and pepper

Isn't this nice? This guy camped right next to us on the beach. Sooo delightful! We think he needs a Hot Mama Apron!
