My Favorite Clam Dip

Hubby and I have a favorite restaurant that serves a to-die-for clam dip with freshly made potato chips.  Every once in a while we find ourselves craving that clam dip. It is easy to make the dip at home with a few ingredients, you may even have on hand now.  That makes this dip easy to whip together for a party or holiday gathering as well as watching the big game this weekend. A Clam Dip Perfect for Any Time of Year Yummy Clam Dip Make the clam dip a day or two ahead of serving for optimal flavor, but if you are like me you'll make it and eat it the same day.

I love pumpkin, and fall signals it's time to add plenty of pumpkin flavor to my menu.   It’s also October and October also means Halloween.  You should know that Halloween is my least favorite holiday of the year.  When I say the least favorite, I really mean I dislike it.  I don't like the focus on all things macabre.  I don't like scary costumes and masks.  I dislike being subjected to horror movie trailers every time I flip on the television.   Truth be told, I'm not keen on trick-or-treating either.  We do it at my house and I make sure to have full-size candy bars to give out to our neighborhood ghosts and goblins, but I admit I lack enthusiasm for the evening. What I do like about Halloween is the colorful decorations.  That includes decorations on cupcakes and cookies.  That's why I decided to combine my love of pumpkin and decorati
