buffalo blue cheese dip recipe4th of July is on Monday!  4th of July is one of my absolute favorite holidays.  I love everything about it.  Celebrating our country, picnics, fireworks.  Everything.  When you live outside of your home country for a period of time, you really appreciate the little things, like our holidays.  Thanksgiving and the 4th are very strange when you are in a country that does not celebrate these holidays.  Why would they?  They are quintessentially American holidays.  This year, we will be celebrating on base.  I am not sure what that will entail.  But I can bet that it will include a grill, some kids on bikes, fireworks, and new friends.

My husband’s favorite food is buffalo wings.  If there is something “buffalo” style on a menu, you can bet that is what he will order.  I, on the other hand, do not really like wings.  I like the flavor combination of hot sauce and blue cheese, but I really do not like to eat greasy wings.  This dip is the perfect way for me to get the flavor that I love without having to take a shower after eating it.  This dip is so easy, you can make it a couple of days before you want to serve it, it only gets better.
