Baked Vegetable Dip and Visa Giveaway

Now that Thanksgiving is over, it’s time to gear up for holiday parties, get-togethers and for Christmas dinner. I am always looking for easy entertaining recipes, and this Baked Vegetable Dip is the perfect crowd pleaser. This recipe starts with frozen vegetables which simplifies the preparation process eliminating washing and chopping. Also, people tend to forget the frozen fruits and vegetables are just as healthy as fresh. They are picked at their peak season and flash frozen, preserving all of their vitamins and nutrients. This Baked Vegetable Dip recipe is economical, and it’s a delight served warm out of the oven.

In honor of the holidays and cheers to using frozen foods and Easy Home Meals, I have a great holiday Visa Giveaway.  I am giving away a $100 Visa gift card just in time for holiday shopping.

To enter, leave a comment telling me what is your favorite frozen food dish that you secretly pass off as homemade?  For more chances to win, do the following and leave a comment telling me you did. The winner will be chosen randomly on Monday, December 16th at 8 A.M. Good Luck! 🙂

  1. I don’t really have a fav frozen dish I pass off as homemade. I do like frozen biscuits and frozen dumplings in a pinch.

  2. Trader Joe’s polenta Provencale with spinach and peas, or their Alsace tarte with caramelized onions, Gruyere, and ham are great candidates for passing off as homemade.

  3. Haha embarrassingly enough I did use a frozen lasagna for party and passed it off as my own only because I didn’t have time to make it from scratch… although the fact that they actually liked it might’ve pushed me to take credit as well. 😛 on the bright side, I haven’t made fake lasagna since! 😉

  4. I am not sure if my last 2 comments were posted. Just delete them, please, if they did.

  5. I would pass off frozen stuffed mushrooms as homemade. I love them, but they are tedious and time consuming so I end up buying them frozen.

  6. I love to use frozen fruit that is seasonal for smoothies and pass them off as fresh fruit that I pealed and cut up. The frozen is already done and saves so much time and hassle. No one is the wiser and everyone asks for more.

  7. Frozen sliced (or whole) strawberries — I add some sugar and let them thaw and soften up that way, then I use it as a topping for ice cream or angel food cake — easier than fresh!
