Now you can enjoy your favorite Spicy Queso Blanco Dip at home. Our Applebee's copycat recipe couldn't taste better. This creamy cheesy dip with a little kick is loaded with 2 cheeses, fresh herbs and just enough heat to make your tongue tingle.

While we were in the midst of planning our Haunted Halloween Party I was brainstorming all sorts of cool party food and I realized that I could turn my favorite salsa into a bloody mary salsa just by adding a few ingredients. What appetizer could be more fun for an adult party?

Living in Arizona for 15 years I have developed a deep love for southwestern flavors. When it comes to soup I don't think there is a soup more suited to the southwest than Chicken Tortilla Soup. Classic ingredients of this Mexican inspired soup are some of my favorites.

Some days by the time I am getting dinner ready I really have no energy left. All I want to do is feed my family and go relax. One skillet meals are such a life saver. Aside from the option of making a huge mess and leaving it for the morning (which I have to admit may have happened once or twice), cleaning up a skillet and a few plates is so much more appealing after dinner.

Summer grilling has never been better than it is with the addition of grilled pizza. The grill gives pizza this fabulous flavor that reminds me of brick oven pizza. I started grilling pizza about a month ago. Let me tell you, whether it is cooked on a pizza stone or straight on the grill, it is some of the best pizza I have eaten.

We are in bite size mode here at The Slow Roasted Italian! Our 'Mini Me' Slow Roaster (our munchkin) is going through a super picky phase. Unless its a dessert with sprinkles it needs to be bite sized to be a favorite. Luckily, we have come up with some fantastic healthy combinations that she is just devouring. Southwestern Ham and Cheese Quinoa Bites are fabulous for the whole family and something that Munchkin willingly devours!

The next few days of vacation were fantastic. The New Orlean’s Audubon Zoo is truly worth dedicating a full day to it or you can combine it with Magazine Street shopping and tasting, like we did to make the most of a day of vacation. We are so grateful to have been invited to enjoy a family vacation in New Orleans.

I am so happy that it is grilling season again. I am giddy over this Grilled Tequila Lime Chicken recipe! I know I could grill all year long living in Arizona, but there is just something about spring and summer that makes grilling that much more fun. I'm in a boozy kinda grilling groove.

Southwestern Mac & Cheese was born in an attempt to make something awesome to feed my picky bunch. Munchkin is going through a new phase, aren't these food phases fun at 3 years old? "Mommy I don't want green earbs". Yes, you read that right. Green 'ear'bs! Well, that pretty much means every meal is going to be a struggle.

We really don't eat out much, but when we do and we have something that we really enjoy, I love to create my own version at home. Last winter my sister-in-law and her kids came over for a visit while they were in town. We ended up getting dinner from Chipotle. The food was really great, but when I tried the Cilantro Lime Rice, I knew there were so many possibilities for this dish. So, I decided to create my own delicious version. It is truly amazing.
