Simple Veggie Bars

I have had such an amazing weekend. My beautiful cousin got married on Saturday and there is just something about weddings that brings out the sappy emotional side of me. I seriously bawl like a baby during the ceremony, the daddy-daughter dances, the couple dance and watching the couple leave the reception. It takes me back to my wedding day 5 and a half years ago. We look like babies then, but its amazing how much we have grown together as a couple :) I just love my husband. (Still on my sappy roller coaster lol!).

(these pictures of me and my husband were taken by Gallery Photography. If you are a Utah Bride, you should definitely check him out! We loved our pictures!)

It was also so great because ALL of my family came into town for it. I love my extended family, they are seriously my best best friends! My amazing aunt came and stayed with me for a few nights and helped me transform my family room on a budget. I just had so much brown, black and neutral colors and really needed to bring in some pops of colors- so she so kindly helped me get the ball rolling on that. She has an eye for these kinds of things. I am definitely not as big of a crafter as I would like to be lol! My cute grandparents also came into to town for it. Now, when my mom’s family gets together, there is ALWAYS great food to be found. We ate like kinds and queens this weekend.

My grandma has been making these veggie bars since I can remember. She has bookmarked them as a favorite in her recipe book and it is one recipe I throughly enjoy! I actually enjoy eating some veggies ;-)

This recipe combines veggies and veggie dip and transforms it into a delicious pizza. It is ridiculously delicious! Try it out and see for yourself!

    I can't even tell you what a gorgeous bride you were, Nikki! Love the pics - thanks for sharing :) The veggie bars look good, but not as good as you on your wedding. I can tell how in love you guys are :)

  2. Tieghan

    Wow, you are the prettiest bride. You looked so happy! I love these photos!!

    Gorgeous pictures; gorgeous couple! Thanks for sharing! The veggie bars look amazing, too! Can't wait to try your recipe!

    I am confused. How do you cut into bars if you are using biscuits? Do you split the biscuits after they are baked? Yours look perfectly square. Please explain.

      oh my goodness! Thanks for catching that! I meant to say crescent rolls not biscuits. Sometimes my recipes have word predictors and as I was typing Pillsbury that is what it wrote. I apologize. It uses crescent rolls, which lay flat on the pan forming a crust.

    Love the wedding pictures. I make vegetable pizza a lot but I've always used crescent tolls instead of biscuits, Will try the biscuits next time

    Ahhh Nikki your pictures are gorgeous! Isn't funny how we feel totally grown up at some moment and then look back later and think, "oh my gosh I was just a kid..." ha ha! I have only been married a year and a half and already think that about my own wedding! Lovely pics, and these veggie bars look de-lish!

  7. Stephanie

    Wow, this is a great idea....but I don't like Mayo or Ranch....I'm thinking of a variation, maybe hummus? You could even try it with pita!

    looking like you do there is no way you eat these; crescent rolls and cream cheese, yum - you are so gorgeous, I simply need a better workout routine - or to just simply start loving myself :)

  11. Liz

    Nice recipe - thank you. Beautiful handsome couple.

  12. Jennifer @ Mother Thyme

    Such lovely photos of you and your hubby! I just love this recipe! I am definitely making soon! Such a great idea!

    Made a half recipe, but kept the same amount of veggies. I think it could have used even more veggies. After mincing them in the food processor, I mixed the veggies into the cream cheese mixture so that my little ones didn't have a hard time keeping the veggies on the bars. I sprinkled shredded cheddar cheese on top; next time I'll mix that in too. Everyone really liked these.
