Other than the peppers, this dip whips up in literally under two minutes so it's the perfect dish to serve when unexpected guests pop over for a...

homemade ricotta

Fresh, D.I.Y. ricotta is all the rage right now and it's no wonder! It couldn't be simpler to make and the results are infinitely better than the store bought variety. I love to spread it on toasted bread but it's also great as a base for tarts and other sweet treats. To add some extra flavour, add fresh herbs, a spoonful of pesto or tapenade and serve as a dip with your favourite flavour of raincoast crisps®, raincoast flats®, and grilled rustic baguette slices.

cheddar and guinness dip

St. Patrick’s Day is a great time to celebrate all things Irish – including one of our favorite brews, Dublin’s own Guinness beer. I love the complexity of Guinness - its depth of flavor mixes so well with other bold notes like chocolate or chillies, and it’s phenomenal with a good aged cheddar cheese. This dip whips up so quickly I’m sure you’ll be serving it all year round. If you can’t find Guinness, be sure to use another equally dark porter or stout – the more flavor you can add in here, the better the dip will...
