Welcome to the Weekend Cook and Tell. Every Wednesday we leaf through the food sections of various national newspapers to create a weekend cooking project. We hope you will cook along with us and share your experiences, recipes, and photos here.
There's been a lot of talk this week about snacks, namely the ones that everyone is going to be eating in front of the TV on Sunday during the Super Bowl. Reading through all of the recipes has inspired countless craving but none as strong as the craving for dips that I have been experiencing. Luckily I'm not the only one with dip on the brain, Melissa Clark of The New York Times has also caught the dip bug.
In Double Dipping Helps Resolve Her Indecision Clark writes that the perfect dip is one that stands on its own once the chips and crudités have all been eaten. Trying to perfect the ideal dip, Clark came up with two, a cold dip based on green goddess dressing with a Greek accent, green goddess dressing and a hot and spicy blue cheese dip.
For this week's challenge we want to hear about your favorite dips. Whether it's a homemade salsa, a riff on the classic onion soup mix and sour cream, or seven layer, if it's a goes with chips we're interested. Bagna càuda and fondue are also strong contenders, the important part here is the dipability factor.
Show us your photos on Photograzing (make sure to include "Cook and Tell" in your submission title) and tell us about your recipes here! If you'd like to blog the experience, please leave a link in the comments below. We'll post a round-up of your photos and recipes next Wednesday with all of your kitchen organization ideas.
