  1. Within the past week I have made your Tortellini Soup, Roasted Mushroom, Spinach, and Goat Cheese pasta, and Salted Caramel Chocolate Chip Cookies. My husband is in heaven, and I love the simplicity of all of your recipes. This bean dip will be making an appearance on Sunday!

  2. This made A LOT of dip – can I freeze some of it and use it a week or so later? Will it still be tasty when thawed? Please let me know what you think. Thanks.
