Duo of Herb Dips......Basil Parmesan Dip with Pita Chips & Creamy Garlic-Herb Dip

The Cooking Light Virtual Supper Club "meets" again.  This month's theme is Cooking with Herbs.  There are endless recipes using herbs but the recipes this month showcase herbs as the STAR ingredient.  Myself and the 4 other bloggers in the Cooking Light Virtual Supper Club have put together a great menu to share with you.  I made 2 herb dips.  One that highlights basil and the other that highlights parsley and chives.  Both dips were very good and easy to put together.  I made pita chips with the Basil Parmesan Dip and they were excellent and went well with the dip.

Here's the rest of the menu from the other supper club members.  Make sure to click on their links to read more details about their recipe.

Val from More Than Burnt Toast - Olive and Asiago Rolls
Jamie (me) - Basil Parmesan Dip with Pita Chips & Creamy Garlic-Herb Dip
Sandi from Whistlestop Cafe Cooking - Chicken Stuffed with Herbs
Patsy from Family, Friends & Food - Risotto With Fresh Mozzarella, Grape Tomatoes and Basil
Shelby from The Lives and Loves of Grumpy's Honeybunch - Pound Cake with Lemon-Basil Glaze 

The Creamy Garlic Herb Dip is great with a variety of vegetables. 

My herb garden is growing like crazy....Basil, Italian Parsley and Thyme


Mom's Cooking Club:  Growing herbs at home is easy to do, fun and a great cost-saver.  I have herbs growing in pots and some in a small garden area.  You don't need alot of space and when a recipe calls for some herbs, I just go outside and cut what I need.

This was a big hit when I served it. Mine turned out a bit too garlicy for my taste, but perhaps my clove was larger. I added some softened cream cheese to balance the garlic and it was delightful! Served with fresh vegetables and pita chips.
