This herb dip is some kind of wonderful! It is simple to make and is a go-to in our house for entertaining. Why? Besides that it tastes good? You don’t get tired of serving it because you can switch up your presentation. Sometimes I serve with crackers or chips, and of course, an assorted veggie platter (like shown). Definitely try this!

For presentation, I love a platter that is overflowing and diverse in offerings. I also like to make sure to have something that’s in the dip as a garnish – like the parsley. It gives your guests an idea of what’s in the dip and it adds freshness and color.

Herb Dip á la Ina

Ingredients:

  • Scallions (4 minced)
  • Parsley (2tbsp minced)
  • Dill (1tbsp minced)
  • Cream Cheese (8oz – you’ll want to make sure it’s room temperature in order to mix easily)
  • Sour Cream (1/2 cup)
  • Mayonnaise (1/2 cup)
  • Kosher Salt & Fresh Ground Black Pepper for seasoning (I also sometimes add a little Season-All as well)

In a mixing bowl (or electric mixer), add all of the ingredients and stir (or blend). Best served at room temperature but if you make ahead place in fridge and set out about a little before serving.

It’s just that simple and oh so good! Enjoy!

Paris Travel Guide

Ahh Paris, je t’adore!!! Everything about Paris excites me – the sights, the culture, the food – incredible! I fell in love with French/Parisian culture when I was young (even though I hadn’t visited) from books read or movies watched and then learning the language in school. I’d been dreaming about visiting Paris for as long as I can remember and when we were planning our honeymoon, we just HAD to go! It was the last stop on our honeymoon and we were there for a week. I kid you…

The Best Candle Scents by Mood

Anyone that knows me, knows I love candles and always have them burning in my office and at home. I love how the right scent can compliment or change your mood. While I have a few tried and true brands and scents, I am always looking out for new ones as well – especially if they also have beautiful packaging (I’m a sucker for good branding and pretty things)! When I came across this article from My Domaine, the scents I tend to select on a given day/mood made so…

How to Make Rosé Lemonade

Back state side after an incredible 30th birthday trip to Paris (sharing my Paris Travel Guide next week by the way) and the South of France with my hubby!! Needless to say we had a steady rosé drip while we were away – it’s such a great Summer wine aka Summer water (and honestly year round). This rosé lemonade recipe is so simple – hello 3 ingredients….Imagine making for lunch/dinner al fresco, or bringing to a BBQ or picnic. Wondering why to choose rosé? Check out this previous post. Rosé…

Cult Gaia Ark Handbag – THE bag of Summer ’17

Having a great handbag is an investment and personally, I’d rather splurge on a staple that can be worn daily (I have a weakness for Chanel, YSL and Louis Vuitton to name a few…my poor husband lol…). I was actually just lamenting the other day how most of my handbags are black because it’s a classic but that I do want to start branching out in colors/styles. I think buying into a trend frequently isn’t ideal…why? Because many trends are seasonal and have a short life span. But I will…
