Best Homemade Dip Recipes

Homemade dip recipes - zippy, zesty, spicy, sweet and savory; including homemade spreads and fondue recipes.

The fun thing about these dip recipes from scratch is that they are easy to prepare (tasty), and you can bring them to any occasion; at work or at a family gathering.

I find a variety of the same dips in certain areas of the country - and totally different dips in other parts. These time tested favorites last through generations of cooks.

My homemade spread recipes are intended to please the palate and I am certain you will enjoy them as much as my family does. I am dividing these into categories so you can find them faster.

Just thinking of homemade fondue makes my mouth water. That melted tangy cheese is a sure hit with everyone. What you want to dip with is merely a personal choice. Steak, chicken, bread, cake, vegetables and fruit are very popular choices.
