And, a new recipe:

 

 

French Onion Dip

Nov 10, 2018 | Recipes | 0 

This super easy dip is one we used to always take to music recitals and parties with finger foods. It is a little different than most that I find on a soup box and is a favorite snack food.

 

24 oz. sour cream

2 pkg. dry onion soup mix (each box usually comes with 2 pkgs.)

Mix sour cream and onion soup mix together. Stir or blend well. Chill 30 min. Serve with pretzels, veggies or corn tortilla chips.

 

 

What’s different about it, Jill?

E0ED523D-C50F-487A-8A8A-102D594555F4.jpeg

The one on the box probably also includes cream

cheese. But she “had to be different” so she’s not “stealing”’recipes. 

 

I make fench onion dip from scratch. Caramelize a large onion with some salt and pepper, 16 oz sour cream, 8 oz cream cheese, and a tablespoon of Penzy’s* Sunny Paris seasoning blend.  A billion times better than this non recipe.

 

*Penzy’s is very openly a liberal, LGBT accepting company. Jill might be condemned to a lake of fire if she uses that. Better stick with the Walmart Great Value French Onion soup mix.

Sam was spinning for a full 2 minutes. That's horrible. Did they take him out and watch him fall as he tried to walk? I'm sure he threw up too. They're cruel. And one last thing, how many contraptions do they have to keep that poor child confined?

I think Sam is too big for the contraption. I stopped using them as my kids got close to age 1...but for being dizzy...my kids love it. I guess the nauseous feeling comes with age?

My only question is if you are intent on making this type of dip ( kind of unhealthy, totally processed and uninspired) why don't you just buy the french dip tubs they sell at the store? Marginally easier and perhaps cheaper?

I used to cook from scratch a lot but for a recipe like this I would totally just buy the end result. Nothing to be gained by doing it this way, you just dirty a dish.

Now making your own salsa- yup, totally better with fresh ingredients. Or making your own hummus- also yum. This is just... why...

So they missed the part about the Johnny Jump Up should be repositioned or removed when more than the child's toes touch the floor?  His knees were on the floor!

I believe we are going to see a recipe from Jill on making plain toast or ice cubes before she's done.  Or next week she'll discover green onion dip.

Haha, very minor detail, but i totally have he same autumn leaf dish towel that jill had on the counter in that video! It was from Walmart last fall, for probably less than $3. ?

I love how of course, this dip was from powedered soup mix. I thought she was trolling us at first when she mentioned looking for recipes on soup boxes, but then I realized no way does she have that level of self-awareness!

Okay, I looked it up, she didn't use the exact recipe off the back of the box. Lipton's recipe calls for 16 ounces of sour cream per pack of mix. Her recipe calls for 12 ounces. Honestly, I would probably like her version better since it would have more onion flavor, but yeah, it's just easier to mix the packet right into the sour cream container like someone else mentioned.

I admit I’m a food snob. I also acknowledge that not everyone had exposure to cuisines from all over the world and living in a household with an income that could afford to suit a variety of food tastes. 

I am not upset with Jill for writing about recipes she grew up with, but why doesn’t she push herself just a LITTLE bit. For example the dip- why didn’t she come up with a homemade snack to serve with it? Or write a post on “party foods”- beginner (the dip featured above), intermediate and advanced? Or “a childhood favorite with a twist”, it’s as if she doesn’t want to learn anything new. She just wants phrase and likes for the same old shit someone else did a generation ago.

I love the idea of party foods--beginner, intermediate, advanced. There are really so many angles she could use to present this blog other than "I think I'm an expert...here's my dear sweet friend Patty's dip!"

Every awful recipe is a family favorite for Jill. It shows what she grew up eating. 

I'm not a great cook, but I've taken a lot of cooking classes in my life because they're fun, show me new recipes, and let me gain some knowledge about food science. Classes are available low-cost at community centers, vo-tech schools, adult ed centers, and high school evening classes. 

If Jill is really interested in a lifestyle blog, she needs to put some effort into it. Recycling recipes from her dull inner circle and the backs of soup cans is not a recipe for success.

If she wants to start small, she could do a few simple dips with various snacks, then the next post a baked dip of some kind with homemade bread etc etc and make a series out of it.

I grew up eating uninspired food except there was always a lot of it.  So for me, it is comfort food.  But, over the years I have learned a thing or two about making an inspired meal.  I am not close to being a gourmet cook but can turn out something pretty and tasty.  And this was in the days before the internet when I had to look at cookbooks or try recipes from magazines and learn about foods.  When i grew up in NJ back in the olden days, I had never heard of an avocado.  Then my mother's cousin had some kind of condition where he had to move to better climate so he moved to california to run an avocado orchard - What?  we were all perplexed. what is this avocado?  Then years later moved to California and got introduced.  Anyway, long story short, (too late for that!) it really wouldn't take much effort for Jilly Muffin to find something a little different - she could google healthy snacks for children and see what appeals.  But, maybe the nasty Mr. Google would bring her to something her tender sensibilities couldn't handle.  I wonder if she even wonders if there is more to life than what she experiences?  Okay, I know the answer.

Sammy was spinning so fast I kept waiting for him to whack his head on the door frame.

They've had that disclaimer ever since they were met with criticism for stealing recipes without giving proper credit.

What is with the caption "so far the Duggars have had 20 combined hours" of Spanish class? There were probably 13 or 14 of the sitting there. That's a little more than 1 hour per kid, right? Or am I misunderstanding something?  

I'd be surprised if Jill herself has as 20 hours of Spanish lessons in her whole life. Much less the whole brood, the way they were trying to make it sound like. 

Which lost boy was the little loudmouth sitting there with Jordyn and wouldn't let her get a word in edgewise?  I just wanted him to shut his yap and let Jordyn talk!

I'm very impressed with Jill in this picture! I'm amazed that she thought to get a dress in that color, and it appears to actually fit! It's bunched up a little weird, but I think it would be fine had she smoothed it out and adjusted it before taking the picture. The one iota of awareness that this might be appropriate for a military event is blowing my mind! I think it's flattering on her.

I don't want to defend Jill too much, but recipes cannot be copyrighted (but you should probably still give credit. just in case). It was something I learned (at university) in a Publishing class for the "online personal self" where we learned how to run a blog and everything that went into monetizing it as well. One student a few years previously was sued (or attempted at least) and ordered to take down her blog by another woman who believed that the student stole her recipe. Lawyers got involved and came to talk to the class, but it turns out you can't copyright recipes and so the student was okay in the end. But it was something the prof made clear to all future students because of it.

I can't remember the reasons behind why they aren't covered, I think because it's just a list of ingredients or sequence of events. What can be copyrighted is the words that describe it, the instructions, the preamble, and whatnot. From the US Copyright Office (I am Canadian, but I think the copyright laws are pretty much the same in the US and here.): Copyright law does not protect recipes that are mere listings of ingredients. ...Copyright protection may, however, extend to substantial literary expression—a description, explanation, or illustration, for example—that accompanies a recipe or formula or to a combination of recipes, as in a cookbook

So as long as she is saying "I go this recipe from so and so" and it's just a recipe from a back of the box or from another site, she's technically not stealing any copyrighted material.

I think she mainly needed to stand up straight so the dress could fall naturally.  She seems to be leaning into Derick with her foot popped up doing that toe pose thing.

Can someone get Derick some black dress shoes FFS? Jill looks almost normal for her age in this one  

 

However I dislike them making a Veterans Day post that’s mostly about them, two people who never came close to serving. Surely they have a “sweet friend” that’s a veteran that they could feature instead?

That's funny. David Venable on QVC just showed a quick way to make crackers for dip.  I think even Jill could handle it.  He rolled out pre-packaged pie dough, brushed it with milk& melted butter & then sprinkled the dough with cinnamon sugar since he had made a sweet dip, cut into squares & bake. How easy is that? Jill could add different seasonings on top depending on the dip she was making.

The shoes are a bit much, in my opinion. She needs to invest in some black heels that can go with everything. Those are the type of shoes you wear to compete at a beauty pageant. The dress fits her great but her hair is just too messy.

When I look at those tacky gold platform heels I immediately think 'stripper shoes'.

I swear, what is it with this family and their footwear choices? It's not that hard, really.

The shoes really don't coordinate well with the style of the dress, IMO, and they're ugly, to boot.  The dress itself is nice and a good color for her.  It could be improved with some thoughtful accessorizing like a big bangle or pendant and the hair needs an update in the worst way.  For Jill, though, this may well be a personal best.

The dress fits her so well! And since it’s a solid, pseudo neutral color, I can understand and support going for a bold sparkly shoe. Her hair could be more stylish, an over the shoulder braid would’ve looked nice. This is an solid B+ for Jill she looks happy.

Never thought I'd be saying this, but Jill looks great. She has a nice figure when she's wearing clothes that flatter.

Oh the stripper heels have to go. That's all I can see, other than the fact she wore a dress the same color as the jeep.

Now it's a nicely fitting dress and she looks great from the ankles up.

I agree.  It's at least inappropriate for these two to use Veteran's Day in that way, IMO.

I'm sure it never even occurred to these rubes to feature an actual vet.
