Friday Favorites–DIY 4th of July

Baked Parmesan Pickle Dip

I always think anything that involves cooked pickles sounds weird.  And yet, I’ve never tried anything with cooked pickles that I didn’t like.  Go figure.  This dip is a modification of a version I’ve been taking to parties for years.  Without fail, someone tells me how much they love it and asks what’s in it. …
