Raspberry dip

I love Family Days! With Dan working so much in the summer, we have limited days together as a family and we really try to make the most of the time we have together. This morning we took our boys to the Minnesota Zoo and we all had a great time. Sammy is still recovering from a sickness, but he did well, considering. Elijah thoroughly enjoyed himself and could have spent the entire day running around that place!

I am so thrilled to not be working full-time this summer so that I can do a ton of fun things with my boys while they are still so little and sweet and wanting to spend time with me. I hope the wanting-to-spend-time-with-Mama lasts for a few more years.

I want to give a shout-out to my stepmom's friend Mary who provided me with this wonderful recipe. I made this dip for Sammy's birthday party last week and it was a total hit. As you read through the ingredients, you will likely say, "HUH?!" like I did at first, but trust me! This is insanely delicious and it is a crowd-pleaser! Thank you, Mary, for the delicious recipe!

In a medium bowl, combine:

2 cups sharp cheddar cheese, shredded

1 cup mayonnaise

1 cup pecans, chopped

1 bunch green onions, thinly sliced

(See? Strange! But trust me!)

Mix well and spread evenly into the bottom of a 9x13-inch pan.

Spread an 18-oz. jar of raspberry preserves over the top in an even layer.

Chill for a minimum of 1 hour before serving. Serve with Ritz crackers. Your guests will love you, I promise!

Thanks again, Mary! I am looking forward to trying the rest of the recipes you sent to me!

it is also good with strawberry preserves. my aunt made this one time and made me try it before she told me what was in it. it is delicious!!!

This sounds different, and weird, and amazing all at the same time! I have to try!

one of the best things about your blog, besides the killer recipes, is that there is a PRINTABLE Recipe. THANKS and keep on posting!

Does it matter, mayo or Miracle Whip?
