Merilee's Peanut Dipping Sauce

2/3 Cup Peanut Butter
1 Garlic Clove
2 Tbsp Fresh Lime Juice
2 Tbsp Soy Sauce
2 Tbsp Sugar
1/8 tsp Cayenne pepper
1/3 Cup Water
1 Tbsp Rice Wine Vinegar
1/2 Tbsp Sesame Oil
Dash of ground Ginger, or 1/8tsp finely chopped Ginger root

Blend all ingredients in small food processor, Blender, or with immersion Blender. Serve with meat marinated in Teriyaki Marinade. Enjoy. Will last up to two weeks in refrigerator.

I created this recipe, when I couldn't find a peanut sauce I was always too much Ginger, too bitter...what not. Anyway, I really like this one, and I hope you all do to.

Bacon Cheddar Fondue

5 slices bacon
1 cup chopped onion
1 clove garlic, minced
1 (10 1/2 ounce) can cream of mushroom soup
1 cup milk
1 1/2 pounds sharp Cheddar cheese
1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
1 teaspoon dry mustard
3 dashes Tabasco sauce

Fry bacon until crisp and brown in 3-quart heavy saucepan. Drain and crumble; set aside.

Add onion and garlic to 1/4 cup drippings; sauté until tender. Do not brown. Add soup; slowly stir in milk, over medium heat; blend until smooth. Add cheese, a little at a time, stirring until melted. Add bacon, reserving some for garnish. Add Worcestershire sauce, mustard and Tabasco sauce. Pour into fondue pot and keep warm. Garnish with bacon and parsley. If mixture becomes too thick, stir in a little hot milk.

Yields 5 cups.

Thought I would post this recipe, it is so delicious for a fondue party. Everyone love it!
