Well it’s on to the next holiday! Did you have a fun Halloween? It’s always fun to see the kiddos get dressed up and show off their costumes. Before we had Miss K I loved to hand out candy, but when we moved outside of town we didn’t get any trick-or-treaters so it’s a good thing we had a kiddo to replace the fun with!

This year Miss K was Olaf and she had a blast. I’d have to say the hubs and I had just as much watching her!

Now it’s onto Thanksgiving. Tis the season for holiday after holiday huh? Have you started to plan your Thanksgiving? It seems my family bi-passed the whole, Hey let’s figure out what we are doing for Thanksgiving… and moved onto here’s our Christmas plans!Cream Cheese Cranberry Dip ~ Easy, Delicious Cranberry Cream Cheese Dip Layered with Cream Cheese, Cranberries, Green Onion and Cilantro!

MY OTHER RECIPES

We keep getting invites to our family Christmas’s so it seems they are super on top of things there but we have yet to receive any information on Thanksgiving I really shouldn’t be worried about this as I’m due just a few days before Thanksgiving. I highly doubt I’ll be partaking in the festivities this year.

If this baby is late then I’ll be stuffing my face with Make Ahead Turkey, Crock Pot Stuffing and Pecan Pie! So much goodness!

It’s kind of a shame because I really like the holidays, especially Thanksgiving. It’s always fun to get together with family and celebrate what you are thankful for reflect on your blessings. I’m hoping I’m snuggling a sweet baby at Thanksgiving time and not 9+ months pregnant. I’m thinking, with my luck, it will probably be that latter option.

I was overdue with Miss K and my mom keeps reminding me that her pregnancies each got longer! By the third she was 10 days overdue and threw in the towel. I don’t blame her for that decision!

  • TeresaJ


    Ok, I feel silly. Where is the recipe? Is it linked? I’m just not seeing it haha!

    • Julie Evink


      Teresa, I’m not sure which page you are on. There should be a recipe at the end or a icon that says “Click Here for Recipe” let me know if you figure it out!

      • TeresaJ


        Ok I found it! There was a big colorful ad right below it that I thought was altogether. Thank you! I knew it had to be right in front of me haha!

  • Kathy


    How much cilantro? It looks like the denominator was left off – thanks!

    • Julie Evink


      1/8 c.! Sorry about that. Thanks for letting me know!

  • barrie


    I found you through pinterest. I’m 9+ months pregnant too!! Few more weeks, hoping I either go NOW or wait til after Thanksgiving as we’re hosting….and have 2 construction projects going on. What were we thinking?!?! Good luck!

    • Julie Evink


      That doesn’t sound like much fun! Good luck with everything 🙂

  • Anita


    Can this be made a day ahead, or should it be made the same day?

    • Julie Evink


      I would make it the same day!

  • Celina


    This recipe is incredible. I made this for my family because most of them are from the north where cream cheese and jelly mixtures are popular. I don’t like that combination personally but made it anyway. First let me say when my husband and I taste-tested this dip, we were stunned. I followed the recipe exactly and served it with toasted pita bread. It far surpasses expectation. It is like a fruity, creamy salsa. Totally awesome! PS. Some family members were afraid to try it and I forced them to just try one. They were all amazed how delicious it was!!

  • Shoshana Adams


    Which crackers would you recommend serving with this? The crackers can make such a difference and I don’t want to get it wrong…

    • Julie Evink


      I would go with a more nutty cracker!

  • Melissa Howell


    This looks so good! I never would have thought to add cilantro and green onions!

    • Julie Evink


      So a delicious and unique flavor combo!

  • Danielle Green


    This just looks simply delicious; can’t wait to try it!

  • Malinda


    I am going to have to try this out for Thanksgiving this year!!

  • Valentina @Valentina's Corner


    This is going on our Thanksgiving menu, for sure! Great recipe, Julie.

  • CHARLENE E MICHALEK


    It may have said, but I didn’t notice….is this gluten free (and yes, i would look for crackers that are) I would like to serve this at CBS brunch and am looking for gluten free recipes.
