This recipe started at school—I'm a teacher, and when a colleague brought Hot Cheese Dip to our regular staff potluck, I immediately gave it an A+.
Cooking, baking and collecting recipe books are among my favorite hobbies. Best of all, though, I enjoy time with my husband and our daughter.

Turn fresh fruit into an irresistible and tantalizing snack or dessert with this dreamy, creamy chocolate dip. Four ingredients and 10 minutes are all it takes! You could also serve with graham cracker sticks for an easy after-school snack. —Stacey Shew, Cologne, Minnesota
Munching on fruit becomes so much more fun when there's a sweet, creamy dip to dunk your slices in. After working up an appetite playing party games, the kids enjoyed this dip. I enjoyed its ease of preparation.

Ranch dressing got its start on a real dude ranch in California. Punch up the Western original with green salsa, green chilies, jalapenos and cilantro for more color, spice and high volume that feeds a crowd. —Lindsay Duke, Goodrich, Texas
To trim down traditional guacamole, I experimented with asparagus instead. My husband and our three hungry sons say this chunky low-fat version is as tasty as the original. I love the guilt-free dipping.
