Creamy Ricotta-Blue Cheese Spread

I love to entertain, but I tend to get a little type-A about it. It’s fun to put out an impressive spread, serve tasty wine, and show off an impeccable apartment. Unfortunately, that usually means scrambling beforehand, because let’s get real: my apartment is never spotless, and it’s a lot of work to prepare a great meal.

Lately, I’ve been doing things a little differently. I like to start things off with a great dip or spread, served with fresh veggies and crackers. Then I follow things up with an easy dinner (like pizza made with premade crust) and finish with a dessert from the bakery. How simple is that?

Here’s a recipe for one of my favorite dips.
