Featured Recipe: Hot Ham & Cheese Dip

Hot Ham & Cheese Dip recipe

We’re nearing the end of the holiday season, with New Years Eve parties right around the corner. So many of us have leftover Christmas Ham, so why not do something amazing with it? Today, I’m sharing the perfect recipe for a holiday party. A Hot Ham & Cheese Dip made with two of my favorite cheeses from Hickory Farms: Jalapeño & Cheddar Blend, a spicy but creamy cheddar, and New York Cheddar Spread, a smooth spread that melts perfectly in this dip. It comes together quickly, tastes amazing, and will impress your guests every time! Since you’ll be using some amazing cheeses, it’s only logical to use amazing ham as well. The Hickory Farms HoneyGold® Ham is a fantastic and flavorful ham to use in this recipe. You want a ham with a blend of sweet and smoky flavors, and this ham hits all the right flavor notes.   Dips are a great addition to any party, whether you’re hosting in your own home or bringing a dish over to a friend’s home to share. If the latter, just place the unbaked dip in the host’s oven for a couple of minute until bubbly and golden brown. Serve with fresh vegetables like celery …

Featured Recipe: Pear, Plum & Almond Country Morning Granola

Granola 03

During the holiday season, our schedules are packed to the brim with commitments. Everything from the kid’s recitals to your cousin’s pancake breakfast, and your best friend’s dinner party in between it all, it’s hard to always have a grateful gesture at hand. This season, striving to be more thankful for those around me and the experiences that surround me, I’ve started reminding myself that preparation is what it’s all about. Preparing sweet treats for guests, friends, and family members makes us not only greet them with a small token of our appreciation, but it’s something we can think ahead and prepare even a couple of weeks ahead (as long as it’s stored in an airtight container!)   Take this Plum, Pear, & Almond Country Morning Granola for example. It’s the perfect housewarming gift to bring over to your neighbors as well as a delicious hostess present to bring to your next dinner party. Another great idea is to make small bags of this granola, tie it with twine, and leave on the nightstand of your overnight guests. Everyone loves a little midnight snack or early treat. It’s also a fantastic way to transform the Hickory Farm’s Dried Fruit Collection …
