Roasted Garlic and Basil Dip has the nutty flavor of roasted garlic combined with the peppery sweetness of basil makes for a wonderfully flavored dip!
Last weekend something happened that is changing some things here on Seduction in the Kitchen. What is it you are asking? Well, Seduction in the Kitchen went down for 5 days.
It is a long story but, the truth is this blog is simply growing. It has outgrown my current host. Basically, it was decided that I need to get away from what they call shared hosting and go to another hosting, which is a private server.
What? I am migrating to a new hosting company and Seduction will be on its very own server. As much as I preach change is good, this move is actually scary for me. I was spoiled by my other host you can say. This change for Seduction is good for both the blog and the old host. It was growing it was causing them issues as well.
I admit having my site down for 5 days while they were trying to figure what was going on cause minor panic attacks. In the end, they did get the site up. I admit during my panic attacks, I was harsh with my old hosting company. Truthfully, they were trying their level best to get the issue fixed.
A good thing that did come from the outage was an inspiration. Seduction is growing. I have been slowly redoing SEO on older posts. That part the reason, it is growing.
So I made my mind up for July, I want to redo not only SEO but photos and the posts themselves and republish them. I got great recipes on here, they deserve new life. I am already reworking SEO so why not redo everything? With me doing this you might discover a new, old recipe.
So this Roasted Garlic and Basil Dip is actually a rehabbed post. Only the photos are not part the rehab, they are original. This recipe was originally published September 13, 2015, honestly, it was next on my list for SEO fixing.
I decided to do a rehab on this dip recipe because. I felt this post needed TLC. Plus, it felt like the right post to announce what happened last weekend and my plans for July’s recipes.
Roasted Garlic and Basil Dip
It is no secret I love garlic. I told many, growing up there was no spices or flavors in the house. So my love of garlic started when I was out on my own.
The sweet, roasted garlic is my favorite. I love the smell as I roast it in my little garlic roaster. Don’t get me started with basil, the peppery sweet basil with roasted garlic make for a great pairing.
Putting them together in a dip is calling for trouble. Why? Well, it can be addicting that you might eat the entire bowl of dip. Trust me I am talking from experience.
All seriousness, this Roasted Garlic, and Basil Dip is simply amazing. The flavors just blend so well together. It is that type of dip that can’t stop with just one chip.
