Welcome to 
"A Little Birdie Told Me..." Tuesday!
If you're here to share a craft, recipe or project post,
you'll find the linky and the specifics on how to 
join the party after the features below.

------------------------------------------------

Last week's party was incredible!  
So many new friends
So much returning talent!
Thank you!

------------------------------------------------



Some would argue that it's simply not a party without some chips and a good dip and this is a party, right?  So, this week I'm highlighting three fantastic dips and a recipe for homemade BBQ Potato Chips.  Enjoy!


------------------------------------------------


Let's start with the CHIPS

(Forgive me.  I'm a little punchy tonight.)




These Homemade Barbecue Chips
from Shugary Sweets
get a special somethin' something'
from bacon salt and a touch of brown sugar:  
a power duo like Ponch & John.  Tee hee!


------------------------------------------------


And now, the DIPS

Unless you're living in an area where Avocados are plentiful,
they can be costly.  Jessica of O. Alouette has a clever
culinary trick for extending the guacamole goodness
without compromising taste.
What's her secret?
You'll have to visit HERE to find out.


------------------------------------------------

When it comes to party dips, there are so many choices!

Hummus?  Salsa? Guac?  Can't decide?
This Spicy Hummus Avocado Dip
from LaForce Be With You
has it all!


------------------------------------------------


Avocado not your thing?

Try the Red Lentil & Feta Dip
from Hungry Homebody
