So, while Noah is super exciting and stuff, he only does so many different things at one time and I’m finding that I’m running out of material to blog about so…I thought I’d share some of my favorite recipes on occasion. Here’s the first of many!:)
If there’s one thing you can guarantee to see at family gatherings, it’s the artichoke dip! I don’t know where or when it started but for as long as I’ve been in this family we’ve had Artichoke Dip at every family function. It’s super simple to make and super yummy!

Here goes:

1 can of artichoke hearts (non marinated)
1-2 cups mayonnaise
1- 2 cups parmesan cheese, grated
garlic powder to taste

Pre heat your oven 400 degrees
Coarsely chop the artichoke hearts (think: you’re scooping this with crackers)
Mix mayo, parmesan, artichokes and garlic powder together
Layer into a pie plate or other shallow baking dish
Bake until warm and bubbly
Serve with sliced baguettes and/or crackers

You really can’t screw this up:) I add mozzarella too sometimes to make it extra gooey

  1. We make our spinach dip like this. Instead (or in addition to) the artichokes, add a package of defrosted chopped spinach. Top with a little shredded cheese and then top with a little chopped roasted red peppers…and that is what you will find at any of our family gatherings. We bake it for 15-20 minutes and serve it with ritz crackers…so yummy!
