Dip into the Holidays!

During the holiday season, we're donning all kinds of great gear for themed parties- sometimes it's fancy and sometimes it's the worst ugly sweater we can find. All that dressing up got us thinking- we should also be dressing up our food for the holidays. We know what you're thinking, food doesn't like to wear clothes. Of course you're right. But, food still likes to party with a good dip in something sweet or something savory.

With that in mind, we powered up the FoodPair search engine and found some great dips for your next holiday party or meal
