Confetti Pasta Salad

Confetti Pasta Recipe was inspired by Jason’s Deli and became a favorite at Stevens Catering. It also appeared on the menu on a daily basis at Sweets & Eats. Serve it on a salad plate or along side a sandwich for a nice compliment. It holds well and can be kept in the refrigerator for a week. Enjoy!

    Creamy Bacon Dip

    Judging a 4-H Region Food Show has nice side benefits including getting great recipes. This dip was often looked over on a buffet table until one person tasted it, and then it was hard to keep it replenished. All the olives and bacon in a cream cheese mayonnaise mixture make it one of the best dips for vegetables. The recipe did not win the show, but it is a winner in my book. Enjoy!
