Goat Cheese Dip for Parties, Sandwiches, and Salads


Sexy Nerd's parents recently gifted us a fancy assortment of cheese from a goat farm near their home. Soon after, a certain someone said he hates goat cheese and wanted nothing to do with it. More for me! I turned the goat cheese into dip, which I served with tortilla chips and buttery crackers.

That same someone who hates goat cheese? Yeah, he pigged out on the dip.

Later, when I combined the leftover dip with milk to create a DELICIOUS dressing, the goat cheese hater enjoyed a gigantic salad covered in it.

Oh, and this same person who would never, ever eat goat cheese may have also made himself a sandwich on two different occasions, substituting my goat cheese dip in place of mayonnaise both times.

So, you know...
You're Not Fooling Anyone, Sexy Nerd!


Goat Cheese Dip with Herbs
(Give them a visit - lots of yummy ideas!)

Combine the following: 6oz goat cheese feta, 2 C nonfat sour cream, 8 oz nonfat cream cheese, 2 cloves of garlic, 1 tsp lemon juice, 3 Tbsp dried onion, 1/2 C chopped fresh basil, 3 Tbsp dried Italian seasoning.

Let everything mellow in the fridge, covered, overnight. I nearly added diced green chili to this before trying it (here in Albuquerque, it's what we do) and am so glad I didn't. It's perfect just as it is! You would never guess that the dip is full of fat free cream cheese and sour cream...probably because the goat's milk feta is so jam-packed with fat. Just a guess. Totally worth it though! Besides, it's healthy fat...probably.

Actually, the fat content in goat's milk isn't too bad, at least according to Google. But now I'm rambling. 

Oh, and if you still have goat cheese to use up, be sure to try my Breakfast Potstickers with Avocado. I created them for a recipe contest and they're AMAZING! They've even been featured by Huffington Post.

Enjoy!

A Blogger's Before & After Guide to Chemical Peels

A Handy "Before & After" Guide to Chemical Peels - 6/25/17 Update
Since writing my chemical peel blog review back in 2013, I've had quite a few Jessner peels (my favorite) and TCA peels. However, I've saved a ton of money over the past 6 months by doing my own chemical peels at home. At my last professional peel, I made a note of the product being used and did some research when I got home. I was able to buy the exact same one, Dermalure Jessner Solution Acid Peel 14%, from Amazon for less than the cost of a single peel. I also use Dermalure's AHA/BHA Acne Cleanser. (Apply this before the Jessner.) It's self-neutralizing, despite what the Amazon listing says, and couldn't be simpler. That said...
I'm not sure I'd recommend this to a chemical peel newbie, as you're already nervous enough the first time without the added worry of doing it yourself, but it's so convenient (and cost effective!) once you're comfortable with the chemica…

Dream Home Dreaming

*Update*
We've finally broken ground on our mountain dream home! Can you believe it? Even more surprising, we actually managed to work a good chunk of this list into our actual design. See below for details.

Original post from 2013:

Sexy Nerd wants to move up building our dream home to yesterday. I still don't know what I want though! Yes, it's difficult to decide on things like paint colors, flooring, and appliances. My problem is a bit worse.

Should we build one of those adorable 500 square feet mini houses? A (budget-friendly) mansion? A charming stone cottage?

Ultra-modern??

The internet makes it easy to find great design ideas for building our dream house. The downside is that all my favorite photos combine to make an overpriced, mismatched conglomeration.

According to my Pinterest account, my dream house has:

...a dramatic front entrance...
