This is a great spread for crackers, veggies, tortilla rollups, or your favorite "finger food" bread. Make it as hot as you like. Its great served hot from the oven or chilled. Different than the usual dips and things you'll find.
This is a fabulous soup recipe, for anytime of the year, but especially fall and winter. Its especially hearty and makes a great meal by itself. This makes a large amount to feed a big group or family. Everyone will rave, I promise! For picky eaters, process the broccoli into tiny pieces and it won't be the focus of the soup. Or if you're a broccoli lover leave the pieces larger.
I created this recipe when trying to decide what to make for a "healthy" co-workers birthday treat. I knew she wouldn't eat cake or a lot of sugar so I thought a great fruit tray with a fruit dip would be excellent. I began by using a traditional recipe and thought it could use an update, so I added pecans, vanilla and nutmeg. It was a big hit at work and I everyone requested the recipe.
I got this recipe from a coworker at the salon I work at. I didn't think it would be so wonderful and addictive! It's very creamy and sweet, and a great mix of flavors. It will be the best thing you ever use grapes for (except maybe wine!).
