Hi friends! How are ya? I’m sorry for disappearing on ya this past week. It might have been the longest span in 12 years that I’ve gone without posting… including after the births of our children. (Oops.) I had grand plans to have posts pre-written before our cruise, but with the book manuscript deadline, it just didn’t happen. I sent it in, did a ridiculous happy dance, packed up our stuff, and hopped on a plane with the kiddos to meet the Pilot in Miami.
We had the most incredible time. Disney just does it SO right and the girls ran around eating ice cream cones, swimming, and meeting their favorite characters. The Pilot and I enjoyed a fancy dinner, some workout dates, and thoroughly enjoyed watching the girls live their best beach lives. I’ll share a full recap soon!! Our last Disney cruise recap is here + Alaska excursions.
For today, I wanted to share two dip recipes we’ve been loving. I’ve made the buffalo chicken one a few times and it’s been a huge hit. For our Super Bowl party, I made a mental reminder to make at least a double batch next time! I also revamped an old Tuscan white bean dip recipe from the blog days of yore. It was a dinner party fave and I also love it on wraps, salads, or on top of protein.
Here are the super easy and healthy recipes!

Tuscan White Bean Dip
This is one of my very favorite dip recipes. It has savory sweet tomatoes, fresh basil, garlic, and olive oil. It’s awesome on a wrap with some sliced veggies, in salads, or served with crudités.
Here’s the recipe:
