Pam’s Pantry

I have two words for you:  Easy.  Yummy.  Seriously, if want some of the easiest dips, dressings, and spreads to make, head over to Pam’s Pantry.  You know your dip is going to be good when it smells yummy before you even open the package.  I have been able to try their strawberries ‘n cream, cheesy garlic, spinach surprise, and our favorite sweet ‘n sassy salsa.  These dips are super easy to make.  You just need a cup of mayo and a cup of sour cream.  That is it!  Now, the strawberries and cream is slightly more complicated – you have to mike the cream cheese and you need cool whip.  Seriously, not to difficult at all.  On the back of each packet, it tells you what ingredients you need, how to make, and what would go best with each one.  They also have Cheesecake Mixes, Bar-B-Q’s and Picklers.   What I love best about these is that they taste great and can be made in no time at all!  Since these are made from fresh ingredients, you can even claim these awesome dips as your own!  :)
