I’m so happy to be able to introduce you all to my bloggy friend Kat, who blogs over at I Want Crazy!  I just love Kat’s approach to food.  She keeps it super simple, but when it comes to flavor, she doesn’t mess around!  Girlfriend knows what’s up.  I’ve gotten to know Kat a little bit from the TGIF link party she cohosts every weekend.  And she’s a member of the #mysterydish crew too!  I hope you enjoy this guest post by Kat, while I rest up from my recent surgery!  She’s brought us all a fabulous dip to snack on!  

Thank you so much for having me on Baking A Moment! I have been a follower of Allie’s work ever since I’ve joined the blogsphere and can’t wait to meet all of you who have enjoyed her work as well! I am bringing you awesome readers a new recipe that I adore.

Pecan Pumpkin Butter Dip

I love things that are quick and easy. I do not have time for dishes that have 10 different components and has you jumping from your cabinet, to your stove, to your sink, to the fridge. I’m not a circus performer!

Therefore, recipes like this are my favorite. Just layer tasty ingredients on top of other tasty ingredients and you’ve got a winner.

I found this pecan pumpkin butter when perusing the glorious isles of William and Sonoma. When I say perusing, I mean just looking and drooling over all the amazing gadgets, tools, and jarred goodness. I can’t afford a $30 pair of kitchen tongs!

However, the second I spotted this I picked it up and the rest was history. I just had to have it and knew that it’s contents wouldn’t last through the weekend.

This dip is the epitome of everything I love. First, the salty & sweet combination is everything that I ever want in a dish. Anything that brings those two types of flavors together I will pay money for.

Second, pumpkin. I get giddy when the calendar rolls over to October and all my pumpkin recipes make an appearance.

Lastly, butter. Combine this with no.2 (pumpkin) and you have won my heart!

If you don’t have a William and Sonoma around you that’s ok because you can order straight from their site. I moved to Indiana a few years ago and my mom supplies me with this jar of goodness ever so often from Chicago. I really can’t do without it.

I hope you all enjoy this sweet & salty, crunchy, creamy dip as much as I do. Thanks for having me and hope to see you all again!
