Super Bowl Crock Pot Cheese Dip

Want to serve something healthy at this year's Super Bowl party? How about some yummy vegetables like carrots, celery sticks, and peppers? Maybe a few baked tortilla chips (low-salt, of course). Well then after all that healthiness you're going need something to dip it in. So don't hold back, try this yummy Cheese Dip that you can serve hot right from the Crock Pot. Oh boy.

Crock Pot Cheese Dip

1 lb (two 8 ounce pkgs.) cream cheese, softened and cubed
3 cups grated cheddar cheese
1 cup grated colby cheese (or any white cheese will do)
3 tbsp. flour
13 oz. can evaporated milk
1 tbsp. worcestershire sauce
2 cloves garlic, minced fine
1/8 tsp. white pepper (regular pepper is fine)

In medium bowl, toss grated cheese with flour. In medium size crockpot (4-6 quart) add cream cheese and grated cheese, stir to combine. Add all remaining ingredients to crock pot then stir to blend. Cover crockpot and cook on LOW for 1-2 hours until cheeses are melted. You should only have to stir once or twice during cooking. Serves 8-10

Alternatives: try Velvetta instead of cream cheese.

Custom Family Cookbook

Some people have been calling this the iTunes of cookbooks. But I just found and was impressed at how easy it is to create a personal cookbook with all your family's favorite recipes. At you can publish 100 of your own recipes or favorite recipes from some popular online recipe sites in a professional binder with huge professional looking photos and recipe cards. If that's too much you can use some of the sample cookbooks they provide, some from other food bloggers, as a basis for your cookbook.

Give it a try, then come back and post about your success.
