Delicious and easy Roasted Red Pepper Dip recipe | red pepper and garlic dip with cream cheese and sour cream | flourishandknot.com

Way back in June when I revealed my Canada Day BBQ set-up, I promised you my Roasted Red Pepper Dip recipe. I always like to test out a recipe a few times before I put it on the blog, and I am happy to report that this dip has been a real crowd-pleaser at several gatherings this summer! So, I feel confident sharing it today as part of the Spectacular Summer Blog Hop. 

This dip is ridiculously easy to whip up, and it can even be made sans oven on a grill if the weather is too hot! With only a few basic ingredients, it’s great for unexpected guests. 🙂

Shredded Adobo Chicken Recipe | Spectacular Summer Blog Hop #19

Who here is on the hunt for quick vacation or week-night meals? *raises own hand* With our little girl starting daycare next week and me going back to work the week after, we are on the lookout for delicious meals that can be prepared and cooked in advance or while we’re at work. My husband’s Mexican, so of course adobo sauce is something we know well and love to use when cooking! This recipe for pressure-cooker shredded chicken in adobo from Crafting a Family sounds like the perfect addition to our quick-meal roster. It makes a great addition to our Spectacular Summer Blog Hop, because so many of us are back to school shortly and are in need of tasty, simple meal ideas.

Susan created the recipe as a vacation meal option for those small hotel kitchenettes, but I can see this being a great idea for a large family gathering of any kind, or just for a fast week-night meal. Tacos are always a crowd-pleaser! Susan also has a fabulous beach vacation packing checklist that I will be pinning for later. (We’re hoping that a beach vacation is in our near-future.)
