    Homemade tzatziki dip is a refreshing appetizer for any crowd!

    I’m sitting on a fluffy white bed right now as I’m typing this. Just to my right, I have a huge balcony overlooking palm trees and the ocean. It’s glorious and makes me dread going back to DC in a week; but it’s a week away so I’ll just continue to soak up the sun and enjoy my time away. I’ve never really traveled somewhere warm in the winter because I’m too scared to fly in the winter. You never know when snow or ice will divert your plans and for me being such a planner, that would drive my anxiety through the roof. However, I think after this trip, I need to embrace traveling in the colder months because man, the sun and even humidity felt great when I stepped off that plane!

    Okay, so you know what baffles me? Why do hotels charge for Internet? You’re already paying them a buttload to stay there and they can’t even include Internet in your stay? I mean, what is it to them, you know? I guess I understand if they don’t want people streaming videos and downloading stuff, but that’s when you limit it. I just need Internet to do some minor work and check my email! Paying $20/day is not ideal in my opinion. It’s frustrating they don’t include it in your stay. I miss the days when they just included it. Now it’s just another way to upcharge you! Womp womp.

    So since I’m in warm weather, I decided this homemade tzatziki dip is the perfect dip to share with you guys! Remember those homemade pita chips that I posted a while back? I actually made to accompany this dip and it was so good! Love cucumbers in dips. They make it so much more refreshing and light. I feel like I’m at a spa whenever I smell cucumbers. Which is funny because my facial moisturizer smells just like cucumbers and every time I put it on, I imagine being at a spa. Just a little morning dream, right? ;) Anyway – get this tzatziki dip on your next dip platter. Btw – I can’t spell tzatziki without Googling the spelling. I think I tried like 20 times before I succumbed and googled it.

    I love tzatziki sauce, but never made my own. Your version makes it look so simple (and so good). I think I’ll have to add some chicken or falafel to my meal plan just so I can use douse it in this!
