Cheese Dip

This cheese dip is super easy and super tasty.

1/4 cup chopped celery
1/4 cup chopped green onion
1 (250 g) brick cream cheese, softened
1/4 cup sour cream
1 2/3 cup grated cheddar cheese (I usually use closer to 2 cups)
1 clove minced garlic

Throw all the ingredients together in a bowl and cream well.

This is pretty much a staple at any sort of social event my family hosts. And the recipe makes a lot, so there's enough to go around. :)

Graduation Cake

I made this cake yesterday for those from my church group who were graduating. There were 12 of them, so I made 12 peanut butter cup grad hats. I wasn't super thrilled with this picture, or the cake. But it was cute.

Also, this was the first cake that I did with my two newest cake-baking tools. First of all, I bought a 12"x17" cake pan, so that I could make large cakes in fewer batches. Which was super helpful! Also, I am so very thrilled that I also bought a bright red, beautiful KitchenAid Stand Mixer! It is lovely, and makes my life a lot easier as well!
