Set out bowls of store-bought marcona almonds (mixed nuts never stood a chance), veggie chips, and a platter of carrots, cucumbers, and yellow wax beans. Serve with this whipped feta and pepper dip.

    I'm sorry to report that this dip was a dud at my party last night. I made it exactly as called for, and it's just not very good. I used fresh Peppadew peppers from Central Market in Houston, fresh Feta cheese and cream cheese – but it left me – and my guests – less than thrilled.

    I've made this recipe many times for many parties and it's ALWAYS a hit! Serve with raw veggies and crackers.
