Healthy Onion Dip

This healthy Greek yogurt onion dip is great for veggies, snacks, and chips. You're going to love it with dinners too! Vegetarian recipe.

I originally published this healthy onion dip for dipping with fried pierogies, but I have since enjoyed it with veggies as well. Joe likes it with chips. I have been digging through the archives of my little old blog (all 2,000 posts) over the last couple of weeks, and I found a bunch of recipes buried in old posts.

Chicken Bacon Ranch Quesadillas

How to make the best chicken bacon ranch quesadillas - Topped with sour cream, these cheesy chicken sandwiches are full of melted goodness. Perfect simple and easy weeknight dinner!

I loooooove quesadillas, and we have a fancy little quesadilla maker at home. We used to use it about once a week although since I no longer eat tortillas, we’ve slowed down quite a bit. Quesadillas are a great weeknight dinner because they include protein, dairy, and a little bit of carbs, and you can even throw in some veggies. Plus, you can make one in about five minutes with virtually no prep.
