When Cade and I first got married we were all about running around to make the holidays special for each other. Then we had kids and our efforts tripled. We want to find the right gifts, start fantastic traditions and make everything perfectly special. It didn’t take long for us to crash and burn.

We realized we were running ourselves ragged and by the time the holidays were over we hadn’t done a lot of just being together. Our errands were taking time away from the family and our holiday recipes were so long and complicated we were spending more time shooing people out of the kitchen than putting our arms around each other and making memories.

One of the first things we ditched was the recipes. Sure we still have some favorites that we make but we looked for ways to simplify. We now do a slow cooker dip, veggies with Marzetti dips and fruits with our Strawberry Fluff Dip as a big dip bar for our game night! Every year we buy a new game for the whole family. Santa delivers the game Christmas morning and we can spend more time making memories, not stress.

This cheesy slow cooker sausage dip is one we learned years ago from a friend but there’s a hefty list of ingredients as you’re supposed to make your own ranch like sauce to add to the recipe. On a whim I bought Marzetti ranch dip and it actually tastes better than the other recipe because its texture is thick and creamy and it’s packed full of flavor that’s fresh and doesn’t taste like a bunch of dried spices as our old recipe did.

Cheesy Slow Cooker Sausage Dip

We just brown up some sausage, then add Marzetti Ranch Dip, tomatoes, cream cheese, and  cheese  in a slow cooker and set it, then forget it. It only has to cook on low for about 3 hours, but we keep it on warm and serve it right in the slow cooker with a little salt and pepper to taste.
