Cheddar Bacon Dip aka "Crack Dip"

Crack Dip1

First of all let me preface this post by you Pinterest?

OMG. I am addicted. Addicted in the worse way I tell ya. Never heard of Pinterest. Don't feel bad, up until a few months ago I hadn't either, then I noticed I kept getting lots and lots of blog hits from it. So many that it made me look into it. I asked around, found out a lot of my blogging buddies were on it so I checked it out and that's when it happened.

I got addicted.

Think of a page when you can bookmark something every time you say "oh that looks good" or "man that looks delicious, I need to make that" or "what I great idea, how am I gonna remember that??"

It's a visual bookmarking page that you can share with your friends. You see what they like, they see what you like. It's like a happy little sharing space.

Crack Dip

I have mentioned it before. My kids are really into dip. I think most kids are, but my youngest will sit with a bowl of dip and some crackers and put a hurtin' on it in one sitting.

I see several entries for this "crack dip" on Pinterest. Hmmm. Sounds interesting. The word crack implying that it's as addicting as....yeah we get it. I actually see that not only is one crack dip featured, but several, some a buffalo chicken crack dip, and even though buffalo "anything" is high on Evan's list of goodness, I decided to try the Cheddar Bacon Dip.

This needs to sit for 24 hrs so I made this Saturday afternoon as a "test dip". You certaintly can't serve a dip that you never made before right? So Sunday morning I go into the fridge and give it alittle mix and decided I should taste it.

It's 10am.

My son and nephew come down the stairs, just haven woken up, and they see dip. They see crackers. They dive in.

After 10 minutes of non-stop dipping, I assume the dip is a hit. My nephew declares it "awesome". He is the ranch dressing addicted child, so I knew this dip would be a hit with him.

Crack cocaine is an unspeakable addiction that destroys lives and families.

Your food is beautiful.

I signed up for Pinterest but I haven't gotten into it very much - I think I will start looking around a little bit more now. This sounds really yummy. We have a football party this weekend, this would be really good to take.
