Please help me welcome, Beki.


We’re a very busy family, as most of you are. December is a particularly frazzled time with jewelry orders, normal Holiday craziness, and 2/3 of our children’s birthdays. So I love an easy recipe to put together for parties!

Hot Spinach Artichoke dip is just that. It’s extremely forgiving so use my recipe just as a loose guideline. It gets rave reviews every time I take it somewhere!

Ingredients: 1 cup sour cream

1 block cream cheese

1 cup mayonnaise

1 cup parmesan cheese

1 cup mozzarella cheese

1 can artichoke hearts, chopped

10 oz. package of frozen spinach

salt, pepper, garlic, and seasoning salt (we like Cavender’s)

bacon bits (optional, but oh so good)

In a microwaveable bowl or on the stove top, melt cream cheese. Stir in all other ingredients and heat through. Season to taste. (taste testing is required! You know you’ll do it anyway…) If it’s too thick, add another spoonful of mayonnaise or even a splash of milk. If it’s too thin, add more cheese.  Serve hot with crackers, fresh veggies, pretzels, etc.
