    I’m a big fan of dips. Have you noticed? They’re a crowd pleaser and often fairly quick to prepare. One of my favorite cheese dip recipes is the Ina Garten’s Baked Fontina that she shared on her show, Barefoot Contessa. With only 5 minutes hands on time, this recipe tastes anything but last minute. Fresh ingredients yield a flavorful dip that goes straight from oven to table. Unless there are more than 4 of us, I cut this recipe in half. Are you ready?

    Start with fresh ingredients. The freshest ingredients offer fullest flavors.
