I've decided to branch out and include some non-dessert posts on Kelly's Konfections now. My mom's awesome appetizers are up first :)
This is Hot Clam Dip. It's incredible. At a recent gathering, I stood next to the table and ate it over and over... and over...
Yeah New Year's Resolutions! Woohoo!
I think Valentine's Day is silly, so I'm not doing any heart-shaped stuff. Show love every day, not just on February 14th! Make this clam dip any (or every) day, not just for special occasions. :)
